Visual acuity with natural eye nutrients
Our eyes are the most precious and crucial of our five senses. More than 80% of all information reaches us through our eyes. If we suffer from loss of acute vision our quality of life decreases tremendously. Just imagine all the things you could not do had visual aids such as glasses or contact lenses not been invented.
Never before in the history of man have so many demands and stress been placed on the eyes. Without rest we read for hours, work, play or surf the web on our computers, watch television or stare at the small displays of our cell phones.
We are not even aware to which tremendous degree our eyes are stressed in these tasks. Adding injury to insult, due to bad eating habits our eyes do not receive the amounts of vital nutrients they require for maintaining our visual acuity.
Depending on our disposition, this combination of excess stress and nutritional deficiencies eventually results in loss of acute vision. It is a shocking fact that today more than 70% of the population suffer from some sort of visual impairment.
Eye nutrients may help
To meet the high demands we place on them, our eyes need specific nutrients to protect them against environmental conditions (e.g. exposure to the sun) and provide them with the optimal nutrition to keep them at maximum functional capacity.
By far the best known eye nutrient is vitamin A as well as the carotenoids. Carrots are always mentioned as the food for good vision. We want to introduce you to a number of nutrients, aside from vitamin A, which you might never have heard about in the context of maintaining visual acuity.
Antioxidants - the essential protection of visual power into old age
The sun's UV rays present a constant danger to our eyes' health. These rays directly hit both lens and macula and lead to the formation of free radicals in these crucial areas of the eye.
In the absence of adequate antioxidant supplies, they can wreak havoc, dull the lens and permanently damage the macula. Antioxidative nutrients therefore have to be considered the primary tool in protecting the eyes' health and promoting visual acuity.
1. Blueberries for powerful vision day and night
Berries are without a doubt among the healthiest fruit varieties. Specific types of blueberries are important for eye health, as they are rich in unique active agents such as Anthocyanosides.
Studies testing pilots, aerial inspection personnel and car and truck drivers have shown that blueberry extract can significantly improve the eyes' adaptability to darkness as well as their night vision. The main cause for this is its ability to speed up the regeneration of the visual purple Rhodopsin.
People who regularly take blueberry extract have reported that they experience colors more intensely and see better. Blueberry extract is also a powerful natural antioxidant and, like OPC, promotes collagen formation as well as the health and elasticity of blood vessels.
The blueberry extract used for Vision Formula contains the particularly high concentration of 24% Anthocyanosides. This is of special significance for the eye's adaptability to various contrasts (brightness-darkness) as well as for acute vision at dusk.
The high concentration of Anthocyanosides increases the vitamin C level in the tissue which stimulates collagen synthesis and thus the connective.
2. OPCs for visual power
The eye and particularly the lens are made mostly of collagen (connective tissue) and water. OPCs (Oligomere Proanthocyanidines), because of its powerful role in strengthening the connective tissue all over the body also bears significance in eye health.
The more elastic and firm the collagen, the healthier the eyes. OPC is also one of the most effective antioxidants and protects about 20 times better against free radicals than vitamin C.
3. Lutein and Zeaxanthin to prevent from macular degeneration (AMD)
The macula - also referred to as the "yellow spot" - lies at the center of our visual field. Only this part of the retina focuses and allows us to see with optimal sharpness. Visual acuity continually decreases towards the corners of our visual field.
Macular degeneration describes the loss of the macula's pigmentation which leads to a loss of vision in the area of greatest visual acuity. Patients cannot read, watch television or drive a car and as the disease progresses are less and less able to recognize faces.
The risk of falling ill with AMD increases with growing age. 20% of 65 year olds and 40% of 75 year olds have reduced visual power of their central visual field. Macular degeneration is responsible for about 30% of all loss of sight and is considered the most widespread cause for loss of sight in western industrial nations.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin - the ultimate substances for the macula
Of all body tissue the macula has the highest concentration of Lutein and Zeaxanthin, two powerful antioxidants from the carotenoid family. Eyes of patients who suffer from macular degeneration store considerably less Lutein and Zeaxanthin than those of healthy individuals.
With decreased levels of Lutein and Zeaxanthin the macula is helplessly exposed to the sun's aggressive UV rays. This causes high oxidative stress, increasingly damages the macula and eventually causes visual defects.
Recent studies showed that Lutein and Zeaxanthin can regenerate and restore the pigments inside the macula which so critically affect visual power. The key to preventing macular degeneration seems to be a sufficient supply of the natural carotenoids Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
Vision Formula contains a natural blend of carotenoids from special sea algae. Sea algae produce high levels of carotenoids to protect themselves from the sun. Vision Formula´s carotenoids are produced exclusively from the sea algae Dunaliella Salina which is known to be particularly rich in natural Beta Carotene as well as many other carotenoids, e.g. Alpha Carotene, Zeaxanthin, Lutein and Kryptoxanthin.
4. Astaxanthin for clear vision
Free radicals and inflammations are responsible for most diseases of the eye, such as macular degeneration, cataracts or glaucoma. Astaxanthin is one of the few antioxidants that can penetrate the blood retina barrier. This makes it ideal for protecting the lenses and retina from UV rays, reducing the degeneration of the photoreceptors in the eye and protecting the optic nerve.
Studies have shown that astaxanthin can significantly reduce dry eyes and eye pain in only a few weeks. In office workers, who work at a computer all day, the intake of astaxanthin led to greater sharpness of vision.
5. Vitamin C for clear vision
Vitamin C which can neutralize free radicals and form collagen can be found in high concentrations in the eye when the body is generally well supplied with it. The highest vitamin C concentration can be found in the eye's lens.
Studies showed vitamin C's sensational ability to reduce age-related cataracts - in 10 vitamin C studies with more than 80,000 test subjects, cataracts were reduced by 40-50%. Vitamin C helps maintain the lens' clarity into old age.
Another interesting fact is that the vitamin C content of tears is about 50 times higher than that of blood. Every movement of the lashes moisturizes the eye's surface with them and thus forms a primary barrier against free radicals.
6. Vitamin A - the eye vitamin
Our body can resorb vitamin A only in two ways.
- As Retinol, vitamin A only occurs in animal food sources.
- As a provitamin (vitamin A precursor) it is contained as beta carotene in plants - our body converts it to vitamin A depending on its needs.
Many vitamin researchers therefore recommend supplementation with carotenoids as intake in this form prevents overdoses.
The American biochemist George Wald was the 1967 Nobel prize laureate based on his discoveries regarding the connection between vitamin A and our eyes. Vitamin A is irreplaceable for our vision and the ability to differentiate colors.Our eye's retina contains millions of visual cells that produce visual purple from vitamin A and protein. When hit by rays of light these visual cells transmit nervous impulses to the brain which generates images. This wonder which we refer to as vision utilizes vast amounts of vitamin A.
If you work a lot in front of computer screens or spend a lot of time watching television, your eyes have to reset themselves 10,000 times a day to new contrast (brightness-darkness) stimuli. You need adequate supplies of vitamin A or its precursor beta carotene for your eyes' continued visual acuity.
7. Vitamin E - a vital element for the macula
Vitamin E's importance for visual acuity is shown by the fact that its concentration in the macula is 70 times that of the lens. It protects the macula's 130 million photocells against the damaging impact of UV rays.
Studies have shown that high vitamin E levels in the blood cut the risk of contracting macular degeneration in half.
9 studies with 10,300 females and males have also shown its ability to reduce age-related cataracts by about 50%. It achieves this by collaborating closely with vitamin C.
