Eye vitamins - complete formula for maintaining normal eyesight
Vision Formula is a unique mixture of effective antioxidative vital elements such as Blueberry extract, OPC grape seed extract, Astaxanthin, Vitamin E and C, Lutein, Zeaxanthin and other Carotenoids crucial for visual acuity.
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.
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.
The UV light from the sun is a constant danger to the eyesight of our eyes. The sun's rays hit the lens and macula directly and lead to the formation of free radicals in these most important areas of the eye.
If there are insufficient amounts of antioxidants, they can cause great damage, cloud the lens and permanently damage the macula. That is why it is above all antioxidative natural substances that protect the health of the eyes and promote sharp vision.
Vision Formula is a unique blend of antioxidant vital substances that are important for sharp vision. The body cannot build these vitamins and plant substances, which are important for the eyes, and must therefore be taken regularly.
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.
Our body can resorb vitamin A only in two ways only. In the form of Retinol, vitamin A only occurs in animal food sources. As a 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.
It is essential for our eyesight and for recognizing 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.
That is why Vision Formula contains 6mg of natural carotenoids, which are obtained from the Dunaliella Salina algae. These are particularly rich in natural beta-carotene but also in many other carotenoids such as Alpha carotene, zeaxanthin, lutein and cryptoxanthin.
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 can therefore not read, watch television or drive a car and as the disease progresses are less and less able to recognize faces.
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.
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. Vision Formula contains a full 50 mg of a very high quality blueberry extract with 25% anthocyanins.
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.
he more elastic and firm the collagen, the healthier the eyes. Furthermore, OPC is one of the strongest antioxidants and protects about 20 times more than vitamin C against free radicals. That is why 50mg OPC grape seed extract (95% polyphenols) are contained in Vision Formula per capsule.
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. In a study with handball players, astaxanthin improved visual acuity and improved depth perception.
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. Vision Formula contains 100 mg vitamin C per capsule.
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.
tudies have shown that high vitamin E levels in the blood cut the risk of contracting macular degeneration in half.
Furthermore, 9 studies with 10,300 women and men have also shown its ability to reduce age-related cataracts by about 50%. It achieves this by collaborating closely with vitamin C. It works closely with vitamin C. That is why 20mg of natural vitamin E are contained in each capsule.
The eyes sensitive cells are under constant attack by countless free radicals. Only a strong team of effective antioxidative vital elements can provide the eyes with optimal protection and maintain as well as stimulate visual power. That's why Vision Formula provides you with the entire spectrum of high-quality eye vital substances in one formula.
