A specialized, comprehensive formula of carotenoids, antioxidants, and minerals important to vision. Lutein and zeaxanthin are natural carotenoids that have been shown through structural and clinical studies to be concentrated in the macular segment of the retina. These carotenoids are not produced by the human body, and their accumulation in the eye is dependent on dietary intake. Studies suggest a relationship between those carotenoids and the maintenance of a normal healthy macula and clarity of the lens of the eye.** Zinc is an important mineral found in high concentration in healthy eyes. Zinc acetate has been proven to be the form of zinc with greatest absorption by the body.***
The only major ocular antioxidant supplement that has a delayed-release formula. This unique delayed-release formula allows the ingredients to dissolve gradually, thereby contributing to greater absorption by the body.
