In the United States, eye health is a major concern for those over 60 years of age. The eye is the most susceptible organ to oxidative damage caused by light, toxins (smoke), atmospheric oxygen and abrasion. As ultraviolet and blue light passes through the retina to the photoreceptors (rods and cones) and the pigmented epithelial (PE) cells, reactive oxygen species (free radicals) are generated. The conversion of this light energy into a nerve impulse by the photoreceptors generates free radicals; therefore if there are insufficient antioxidants available to neutralize them, the eye undergoes excessive oxidative damage.
By now you know how important it is to minimize oxidative damage. The eyes are the most susceptible organ to oxidative damage caused by light, toxins, and atmospheric oxygen.
Researchers at Harvard University have found that supplementing with six milligrams daily of lutein can lower the risk for macular degeneration by an average of 43 percent, proving “the eye vitamin” lives up to its name.
There are more than 600 different types of carotenoids found in nature, but only about 20 make their way into the eyes. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the most important since they’re delivered in the highest quantities into the eyes’ delicate macula. Just like lutein, zeaxanthin helps protect the eye’s tissue, lens, and macula, which clears vision and prevents glare, light sensitivity or disorders like cataracts.
Since you should already be taking a good multivitamin like Alpha Base, you should be covered on everything except the Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
This product is on our recommended list because it contains Lutein and Zeaxanthin along with a blend of antioxidants, minerals and botanicals, all of which have been demonstrated in research to support healthy eye function, without replicating other vitamins you are already getting in your multivitamin.
