Eye Formula is a high quality dietary supplement formulated specifically to support and retain vision and eye health. It combines key vitamins, minerals, herbs, flavonoids, carotenoids, antioxidants, and enzymes that are known, through traditional wisdom and modern science, to be potentially useful in nourishing and protecting the delicate and finely tuned mechanism that provides the priceless gift of sight.
Although advancements through science and technology pertaining to maintaining and promoting healthy eyes have taken great strides, there is increasing scientific evidence that nutritional factors may also play an important role.
The nutrients combined in Eye Formula, as well as their historical and scientific importance, are beneficial to eye health.
Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis) herb grows wild throughout Bulgaria, Hungary, the Balkans, and is grown commercially in Europe. Eyebright is rich in iridoid glycosides, flavonoids, and tannins. Its common name, “Eyebright”, is derived from its rich traditional use as nutritional support for the eyes in external poultices, teas, tinctures, fluid extracts, and whole herb for dietary use.
Bilberry, a close cousin to blueberry, has long been widely used in Europe for eye health. Research on bilberry began based upon the discovery that British pilots noticed and reported their night vision was improved when they ate bilberry jam prior to night flights. It turns out that the brightly colored and potent antioxidant compounds in bilberry fruit and leaves, which are called anthocyanidins speed the replenishing of rhodopsin, the purple pigment that specialized nerve cells in the retina use for night vision. These flavonoids also support the formation of connective tissues and assist in strengthening the capillaries in the eye, as well as elsewhere in the body. Anthocyanidins are closely related to the oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) found in grape seeds and pine bark.
Eye Formula contains hesperidin, rutin, and quercetin, which are important flavonoids that help sustain healthy capillaries and blood circulation, as well as being potent antioxidants. Rutin has been associated with maintaining healthy pressure levels within the eye. Small amounts of the enzymes bromelain and papain are included because they enhance the absorption of flavonoids from one’s diet.
Many of the delicate structures of the eye, such as the lens and the macula (the region of the retina with the greatest concentration of light-sensing nerves) are sensitive to free radical attack. Vitamin C and glutathione (a linkage of amino acids) are the major antioxidants in the lens of the eye and are components included in Eye Formula.
Vitamin C helps to preserve vitamin E, whereas vitamin E helps maintain glutathione in the active form that protects the lens from free radical attack.
Vitamin C levels in the eye naturally decrease with age, and supplementing with vitamin C helps ensure that adequate levels are maintained.
Riboflavin (vitamin B-2) and Niacinamide (vitamin B-3), as well as the mineral selenium, are also needed to protect glutathione. Zinc is required for the function of two enzymes in the retina that are critical for vision. Therefore, zinc, in addition to selenium, niacinamide, and vitamin C (in the form of magnesium ascorbate) is provided in Eye Formula.
Lutein and zeaxanthin, two specific carotenoids recently highlighted in eye research, are particularly important to eye health. Lutein is the only carotenoid found both in the lens of the eye and in the macula, the most sensitive and
dense nerve network of the retina. Eye Formula provides significant amounts (4 mg of each daily) both lutein and zeaxanthin. Many diets are lacking in lutein and zeaxanthin, which are most abundant in spinach, kale, collard greens, romaine lettuce, peas, egg yolks, and leeks.
Both lutein and zeaxanthin have been found to be highly concentrated in the macula of healthy retinas and appear to neutralize free radicals generated when ultraviolet light strikes the retina.
Eye Formula also provides 1,250 IU of vitamin A equivalent activity (called retinol equivalents) per serving. The vitamin A in Eye Formula comes from a broad spectrum natural carotenoid complex, which also contains many other non-vitamin A, related carotenoids as well.
Within a few months of use, you’ll clearly feel and see the difference they can make.
