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. 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 the vision and prevents glare, light sensitivity or disorders like cataracts. If you are not taking a multivitamin to get vitamin C and vitamin E you can consider this product. If you are taking a good multiple vitamin like Alpha Base, I would recommend taking 4Sight.

Benefits at a Glance
Provides Key Antioxidant Support for Eyes
Increases Ocular Circulation
Supports Macular Health
Protects Macula Against Light
Maintaining the health of the eyes and vision is a major concern for the United States population over 60. The eye is the organ most vulnerable to oxidative issues due to light, toxins (smoke), oxygen, and abrasion. Emerging research highlights the importance of targeted nutritional strategies to protect the macula and enhance visual acuity. In a ten-year, clinical trial sponsored by the National Eye Institute, high levels of antioxidants, carotenoids, and zinc were shown to reduce the risk of advanced age-related macular deterioration and its associated vision loss by 25%. In a five-year follow-up trial, higher intakes of lutein and zeaxanthin were shown to provide increased macula protection and reduce the advancement of age-related macular deterioration by an additional 20%.
