With eye health becoming a primary concern of aging, a great deal of recent research hasfocused on maintaining healthy eyes. It is well established that the Vitamin A family of nutrients(retinoids and carotenoids) is critical to ocular nutrition. One specific carotenoid, Lutein (andits precursor, Zeaxanthin), has been identified as playing a central role in macular health.Lutein is an antioxidant that appears to quench or reduce harmful free radicals. Lutein alsofilters the high-energy, blue wavelengths of light from the visible-light spectrum by as muchas 90%. It is important to carefully balance lutein with beta-carotene in a clinical eye formula,avoiding too much carotene, as they compete for absorption.
Ocu Support? is nutritionally balanced, having been formulated to provide comprehensiveprotection for the eyes. Studies suggest that 6-10 mg of Lutein per day is necessary torealize health benefits. One serving of Ocu Support? supplies the full 10 mg of Lutein. OcuSupport? has also included useful antioxidants like Green Tea Extract, Alpha-Lipoic Acid,Bilberry, and Grape Seed Extract.
Ocu Support? contains FloraGLO Lutein and Zeaxanthin from Marigold Flower Extracts.Numerous peer-reviewed studies link the natural antioxidant lutein with important eye-healthbenefits. Newer science suggests lutein promotes healthy skin. FloraGLO Lutein is theworld?s leading patented, purified lutein source.*
