Our eyes are constantly exposed to sunlight, artificial lighting and free radicals, all of which can damage them. After middle age our natural antioxidant production decreases, and the pigments in our eyes change, further harming the eye. Perfect Eyes gives your eyes the nutritional support they need to protect against eye damage. This formula contains Lutein, an important antioxidant that may diminish the effects of age-related macular degeneration, and N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC). Aging bodies can easily convert NAC into the eye-protecting antioxidant glutathione, defending the eye from harmful free radicals and nerve cell damage.
Recommendations: Take two capsules daily with a meal.
The population is ageing, science is advancing and consumers are increasingly aware of nutritional needs for health eyesight. Retinal and macular health are essential to proper vision. There are several natural ways to support vision: Lining the back of the eye, the retina "sees" light and transforms it into nerve impulses that they brain interprets as vision. Maintaining healthy blood flow through the capillaries of the retina is essential for proper vision. Maintaining healthy capillaries (tiny blood vessels) is the key to optimal retinal function.
The macula is the retina's central area where light is focused. It is responsible for detailed vision. Inside the macular is a yellow pigment that contains two carotenoids - lutein & zeaxanthin, which protect the retina from ultraviolet light and free radicals. Research at Hopkins Wilmer Eye institute USA found that daily supplements of lutein did significantly boost vision. People in the study improved their visual acuity and the width of their visual field.
Bilberry helps boost blood flow to the eyes and helps keep the cells in this part of the body well supplied with oxygen and nutrients. The antioxidant nutrients Zinc & selenium, which are deficient in NZ soils, are contained in this formulation, as they are essential for helping prevent free radical damage. The herb eye bright has been used specifically for weak eyesight and infections and inflammations of the eyes.
