Deal of the Week: American Nutrition’s Vision Support formula
|Vision Support is an excellent formula with high potencies of several trademarked nutrients that are well known to support healthy vision. This product contains standardized Bilberry extract, Lutein (FloraGLO™), Lycopene, Mixed Carotenoids (Betatene™) and a base of other supporting ingredients.|
In addition to finding that bilberry improves night vision, studies have also shown that it improves nearsightedness and overall visual acuity during the day as well. Scientists believe that this improvement might be due to bilberry’s effect on the blood supply. In one study, the blood supply to the eye was increased by 75% in patients taking regular bilberry supplements.
Lutein is an antioxidant found in many plants. It is from the carotenoid family, which consists of naturally occurring fat-soluble pigments in plants. It is the main carotenoid found in the retina.
Lutein works extremely well in protecting the retina against sunlight damage.
Lutein has been shown effective in the treatment of cataracts.
Supplementation with 6 mg of Lutein daily may decrease the occurrence of macular degeneration by more than 50%.
Most Americans do not get enough Lutein in their diets. Research has suggested 6 to 20 mg of Lutein per day are needed to realize its health benefits. Lutein is widely available, in doses up to 20 mg or more, in a variety of nutritional supplements, fortified foods and beverages for people wanting to supplement their dietary intake of Lutein.
