Biovea Zeaxanthin with Lutein 30 Softgels
Helps Prevent Macular Degeneration
• Protects retina against harmful blue light
• Fights age-related macular degeneration
• Promotes overall healthy vision
ZEAXANTHIN with LUTEIN is a naturally derived supplement that can help fight against age-related macular degeneration (e.g., blurriness, dark areas, and distortion in central vision), protect the retina, and promote healthier vision. It is believed that ZEAXANTHIN with LUTEIN stops harmful blue light from reaching the primary structures in the retina, thereby reducing the risk of oxidative damage that could lead to macular degeneration.
ZEAXANTHIN and LUTEIN both contain high levels of carotenoid compounds, which are known to promote healthy vision, and can be found in many plants and leafy vegetables, such as arugula, spinach, kale, Swiss chard, and Romaine lettuce.
What is Macular Degeneration?
The macula is a small yellow spot that is located near the centre of the retina. It allows you to focus on sensitive details, such as reading small print and street signs from a distance, and threading a needle. As you age, your eyesight weakens, with many older individuals seeking the help of eyeglasses for reading or driving at night. Macular degeneration is the slow ageing process that occurs to the macular portion of the eye—individuals may experience symptoms like distortion, blurry vision, and even permanent loss of central vision.
Why Take ZEAXANTHIN with LUTEIN?
ZEAXANTHIN with LUTEIN is a natural carotenoid supplement that researchers believe protects the macula by inhibiting potentially harmful forms of light. ZEAXANTHIN with LUTEIN strengthens and guards the eyes against environmental damage by acting as an optic filter and antioxidant, which helps promote healthy eye functions and reduces premature ageing.(1)
The Powerful Ingredients That Make ZEAXANTHIN with LUTEIN So Effective:
Zeaxanthin: An antioxidant found in the pigment of fruits and vegetables, as well as in the eyes and brain, zeaxanthin is a natural compound that can effectively help protect the eye by absorbing harmful blue light and reducing glare. Zeaxanthin can fight against free radicals that may cause premature ageing.
Lutein: Contained in dark leafy vegetables and eggs, lutein is also a potent antioxidant that has been shown to help fight macular degeneration. Similar to zeaxanthin, lutein is naturally found in the eyes and it slowly declines as you age. Lutein works together with zeaxanthin to protect, strengthen, and improve eyesight.
