Lutein Plus Eye Complex (60 Vegetarian Capsules)

Lutein Plus Eye Complex (60 Vegetarian Capsules)
What is the Best Natural Formula for Eye Health?

 

  

Researchers have discovered that lutein protects the macula by filtering out potentially damaging forms of light. People in the top 20% for dietary lutein intake were 50% less likely to develop cataracts as those in the lowest 20%.

 

Vegetarian Natural Eye Health

Lutein, Bilberry, Zeaxanthin

Good 4 Life vegetable encapsulated Lutein Plus Eye Complex is a comprehensive eye formula, of 12 vitamins and minerals and nine extracts and compounds that research, including the AREDS study, has shown can significantly benefit eye health, including Zeaxanthin, Lutein and Bilberry extract.  Used for the prevention and improvement of visual disorders, such as macular degeneration, or to help support healthy eyesight.

Lutein

Lutein is a naturally occurring carotenoid found primarily in fruits and vegetables. High concentrations are found in a small part of the eye called the macula which is in the center of the retina. Lutein can protect the macula by filtering out potentially damaging forms of light. 

Studies show that increased lutein intake through supplementation results in increased pigmentation in the eye.  Other research demonstrates that an increase in macula pigmentation decreases the risk for eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration. 

Americans consume about 1.5 mg of lutein per day from food sources, although dietary guidelines of the US Dietary Association Food Guide Pyramid recommend closer to 3 mg a day, and most studies show benefits from supplementing at least 10mg a day.

Zeaxanthin

75% of the central macula is composed of Zeaxanthin whereas 67% of the peripheral retina is Lutein.  It is thought that Zeaxanthin Carotenoid protects the Macula and Retina and may protect against Cataracts.  Zeaxanthin may stop and reverse Macular Degeneration .  In fact Zeaxanthin deficiency may still turn out to be the very cause of Macular Degeneration .  As we age we become more deficient in Zeaxanthin and as many as 33% of seniors will develop Macular Degeneration.


Zeaxanthin is very scarce in foods yet studies suggest need for supplementing 2 times as much Zeaxanthin as Lutein.  Zeaxanthin is 20 times less prevalent in a healthy diet than Lutein.
 

Clinical studies show marked protection and/or improvement of vision from taking 20 mg of Zeaxanthin and 10 mg of Lutein.

Studies have also associated low carotenoid levels with cataracts. The National Eye Institute is currently sponsoring a large study of antioxidants, while recommending these 4 supplements of Zeaxanthin, Vitamin E, Zinc and Lutein.

Bilberry Extract

Bilberry, a close relative of the blueberry and cranberries, has been used in medicine for at least one thousand years.  Bilberry jam was even used by the British Royal Air Force to improve night vision.  Studies with Bilberries have shown a wide range of beneficial effects on the health of the eye.

Bilberry is rich in special antioxidants called anthocyanosides. These natural antioxidants are especially beneficial to the health of the eyes protecting them against free-radical damage such as Age-related Macular Degeneration.

When exposed to bright light, a purple pigment rhodopsin in the eye is broken down leading to loss of visual acuity or sharpness.  Bilberry protects against rhodopsin breakdown and even promotes its regeneration.   Rhodopsin improves night vision and enables the eye to adapt to light and dark as well as reducing eye strain and sensitivity problems.

More research is planned, however, Bilberry supplementation so far appears to help stabilize connective tissues maintaining healthy internal eye structures and may therefore reduce the occurrence of cataracts.  Bilberry is also thought to prevent leakage from blood vessels which would be beneficial in helping improve glaucoma.

Diabetics are particularly prone to harmful eye conditions and many take bilberry supplements to reduce the risk of eye complications, and loss of vision.

Bilberry is used to relieve eye fatigue, associated with excessive computer use, or reading in dim light.


Other Key Natural Supplements used in our formula

B vitamins have been linked with a reduced risk of cataract and studies have provided evidence supporting a protective role of vitamin C in cataract prevention.

Selenium has been linked with a reduced risk of cataract and activates the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, protecting cell membranes from oxidative damage.

Studies that add the three natural anti-oxidants, vitamins C and E and beta-carotene have shown increased results showing that they are also essential for ocular nutrition and to further combat free-radical formation and  are therefore also included in our supplement formula.
 

Eye Health Research Indicates

» Individuals in the top 20% for dietary lutein intake were only half as likely to develop cataracts as those in the lowest 20% of lutein intake.
» Several studies have demonstrated substantial protection against the type of damage that leads to age related macular degeneration.
» Supplementation appears to be of benefit in those who have retinitis pigmentosa.
» Epidemiologic studies indicating an inverse relationship between xanthophylls (i.e. Lutein & Zeaxanthin) intake and both cataract and age-related macular degeneration suggest these compounds can play a protective role in the eye.
» Some studies have also shown these Xanthophylls may help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, particularly those of the breast and lung.
» Emerging studies suggest as well a potential contribution of lutein and Zeaxanthin to the prevention of heart disease and stroke.
