The eyes are a vital sense organ, responsible for vision. Good eyesight is an important part of wellbeing and a significant factor in retaining the quality of life as we age. Proper nutrition is essential to help keep your eyes healthy and functioning at their best. EyeVit Plus is specially formulated to safeguard the intake of the most beneficial nutrients which are known to help maintain and care for the eyes.
What Are EyeVit Plus Capsules For?
Vitamin A and Beta-carotene both play an important role in good vision. They help protect the eyes from infections, and are effective for the treatment of dry eyes. Vitamin A deficiency is known to lead to night blindness.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative damage caused by metabolic by-products called free radicals
Zinc contributes to normal absorbtion of Vitamin A and also assists antioxidant enzymes in the body in reducing the number of free radicals which can cause damage to the eyes.
Bioflavonoids are a large family of substances found in mostly all foods rich in vitamin C. They have good antioxidant properties and could protect blood vessels, including the delicate capillaries in the retina, whilst improving blood circulation to possibly reduce the onset of dark circles.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are compounds called xanthophylls, which are yellow pigments that occur naturally in many plants and vegetables. They appear to have important antioxidant functions in the body, and help block blue light from reaching the underlying structures in the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage.
Several studies suggest that fatty acids such as Omega-3 could protect the eyes from macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome. Essential fatty acids may also help proper drainage of intraocular fluid from the eye, decreasing the risk of high eye pressure.
Insufficient Vitamin D in the diet appears to be linked with a greater risk of blindness and age-related eye degeneration.
Grape Seed is a concentrated source of two powerful antioxidants called proanthocyanidins and oligomeric proanthocyanidins. Research suggests that Grape Seed extract, may aid eye health, and could possibly reduce the risk of various degenerative eye problems.
One of the most well-known herbs for eye health is Bilberry. It is believed that anthocyanins found naturally within Bilberry is the chief reason why Bilberry is considered effective in providing nutritional support to protect the eyes from eye-strain, fatigue, and also helps in boosting circulation to the eyes. Anthocyanins help build strong healthy capillaries that carry nutrients to the eye muscles and nerves.
