Benefits at a Glance
Provides key antioxidant support for eyes
Supports macular health
Protects macula against light damage
Increases ocular circulation
4Sight was formulated with a specific blend of botanicals, nutrients, antioxidants and minerals, shown in research to support healthy eye function. The formula provides potent antioxidant support as well as key nutrients to care for and maintain the long-term health of the eyes.
The most important vitamins for eye health include:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin A
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids
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.
