Health and Nutrition






Ongoing scientific research suggests that there are specific nutrients that have been shown to affect contributing factors relating to blood vessel damage in the eye, including:
Alpha Lipoic Acid – potent mitochondrial antioxidant that targets harmful proteins
Grapeseed Extract & Resveratrol – reduces oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction and apoptosis
CoQ10 – improves endothelial cell function and may help with lipid peroxidation
Vitamin D – low serum Vitamin D is associated with a host of physiologic challenges
Vitamins C & E – along with tocotrienols help reduce oxidative stress and improve endothelial function
Green Tea Leaf – aids in the reduction of vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF)
Benfotiamine – helps support the biochemical pathways associated with vascular health
Pycnogenol® – helps improve retinal capillary integrity and retinal blood flow
Curcumin – demonstrates the ability to improve the status of angiogenic signaling proteins
Fish Oil (DHA & EPA) – improves cell membrane integrity and vascular permeability
Zeaxanthin – reduces oxidative stress and helps protect visual cells (cone protection)
Lutein – reduces oxidative stress and helps protect visual cells (rod protection)
Zinc – may help with lipid peroxidation
