Gaspar's Best Eye Health With Lutein and Lycopene
16 Antioxidants, Vitamins, Minerals, and Herbs To Support Optimal Eye Health and Function
What You Need To Know:
Numerous studies indicate that lutein, zeaxanthin, alpha lipoic acid and other nutrients may be important in preserving and maintaining healthy eyes, especially as we age. Large scale trials are underway to more accurately determine the exact roles that these nutrients play in supporting eye health in general and macular health specifically. Eye Health has been specifically formulated to provide eye structure and function support as well as antioxidant support.
Quercetin helps support histamine levels within normal ranges to help maintain eye health. Bilberry helps with the formation and maintenance of connective tissues within the eye, has beneficial effects on microcirculation, assists in strengthening capillaries in the eye and protects the macula. Eyebright is an herb that improves microcirculation to the retina and helps maintain eye moisture and pressure. L-Taurine is essential for maintaining the structural integrity of the retina. If Taurine is depleted, rapid photoreceptor degeneration can result. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are antioxidants that support ocular health by inhibiting free radical reactions in the eye and by supporting the thickness of macular pigment. Lutein is found in high concentrations in the retina and macula of the eye. Lutein also helps protect the lens of the eye from the damaging effects of UV sunlight. Finally, Vitamin B-12 helps nerve function by supporting the myelin sheath, which insulates nerves such as the optic nerve.
Beta carotene is a powerful antioxidant that is converted in the body to Vitamin A, which is essential to the protection and function of the retina of the eye. Lycopene is a phytonutrient that has powerful antioxidants to help maintain optimal eye health. L-Glutathione is the key antioxidant in the lens. Its major function is to protect the lens from ultraviolet radiation which over time can cause clouding.
The production of Glutathione in the lens declines with age. Vitamins C & E are antioxidants that support circulation and the structures of the eye. Finally, Selenium, Zinc and Riboflavin are nutrients necessary for supporting antioxidants such as glutathione and super oxide dismutase.
