Your Eyes Are Vulnerable
Air pollutants, computer screens, UV light, smoke, dust, solvents, and so much more — all of these irritants can plague the delicate layers of the eye. Combine these factors with others, like aging and nutrient deficiencies, and it’s no wonder that so many of us face progressive eye issues.
When we considered how many people are afflicted with eye conditions, our motivation to create a groundbreaking formula like Eye Protector was stronger than ever. In studying what was currently available in the market, we disappointingly found that none of these formulas hit the mark (by a long shot). They lacked so many of the most important nutrients in pure, solvent-free and clinically relevant forms. Our commitment to create something that had never been done before required 3 dedicated years of research and development to ensure the purity, completeness, and effectiveness of our special formula. Our 15+ exclusive SuperPure extracts and concentrates in Eye Protector provide an extraordinary and far-reaching approach never before achieved for helping to keep your eyes sparkling with health and clarity for years to come.

Aronia BerryAronia Berry Aronia melanocarpa Certified Organic
Aronia is quickly becoming the next big superfruit as the research accumulates on its many remarkable health properties. Also known as chokecherry, this tart super-berry has been used for generations by the Native Americans as a nourishing, protective dietary staple. Turns out this berry is off the charts with polyphenols, special antioxidant compounds that support optimal health, especially of the heart. Our aronia berries are specially grown in Northern Europe adhering to the purest, certified organic standards. After peak harvesting, a portion of the berries are first juiced and then freeze-dried. In addition, we freeze-dry them in their whole form — skin, seeds, pulp and all. When combined, the juice and whole fruit create the perfect synergy so that you can reap the rewards of this rising star.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_aroniaberry.jpg
Astaxanthin (Haematococcus Algae)Astaxanthin (Haematococcus Algae) Haematococcus pluvialis
Haematococcus is a rare red freshwater algae and a potent, plant-based source of a unique antioxidant known as astaxanthin. Astaxanthin may well be one of the most powerful antioxidants that nature has to offer. This fat-soluble “king of the carotenoids” is quickly rising in the ranks of most beneficial supplements for its many contributions to our overall health, not just our eyes. Astaxanthin is a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to our eyes and skin. It is one of the only antioxidants that is capable of protecting both the water-soluble and fat-soluble parts of our cells. Studies have shown that astaxanthin supports our eyes and skin during UV light exposure. As well, it supports healthy eye energy, healthy blood vessels, healthy lens function, and healthy visual acuity. One of the interesting features about asaxanthin is that, unlike some other types of antioxidants, astaxanthin never becomes a pro-oxidant in the body so it can never cause harmful oxidation.
Our astaxanthin is certified organic and grown in a special, hermetically-closed, tightly monitored freshwater system to ensure no contamination from microbes, agricultural residue, and other foreign debris. The whole system is run using green technology and is powered by natural sunlight. Our exclusive SuperPure process is utilized to concentrate the astaxanthin to the desired levels for ultimate purity. Taking a supplement with high quality astaxanthin is your surefire way to access one of the most protective antioxidants in the world.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_haematococcus.jpg
BilberryBilberry Vaccinium myrtillus Certified Organic
Loaded with the highly researched and health-supporting anthocyanins, these rare berries may be small, but they're a mighty force for eyes that are bright, shining, and healthy. Research shows these same exact antioxidant compounds support strong, healthy blood vessels and healthy circulation. The bilberry is a close relative of the wild blueberry and huckleberry with its very own exceptional set of advantages. Our certified organic bilberries are fresh freeze-dried and concentrated to amplify their full spectrum of eye-loving goodies.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany-bilberry.jpeg
Black Currant ExtractBlack Currant Extract Ribes nigrum
Black currants have a very long history of use given their impressive list of nutritional and phytonutrient contents. They are greatly valued for their health-boosting influences on brain, digestive and eye health, and have a special affinity for the lungs especially during cold & flu season. A particular class of flavonoids has been pinpointed in black currant called anthocyanins. Various studies and reviews point to anthocyanins' antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, especially for our vessels and eyes. The dark purple pigment of this berry reflects one of the highest percentages of anthocyanins in any fruit, particularly one called cyanidin-3-glucoside or C3G. C3G is one of the most predominant anthocyanins found in nature. It's also one of the most bioactive nutrients in its class and one of the most clinically researched.
Our certified organic black currants are grown on a specialty farm in New Zealand, the best-known environment for the most nutritious and anthocyanin-rich berries in the world. This farm is situated on the South Island of New Zealand, which has the perfect synergy of clean air, intense sunlight, and rich soils for growing these purple gems. Our black currant cultivar has been specially developed for its rich nutritional value. Our currants are harvested in January when they are assessed to have their highest levels of anthocyanins. They are then processed using exclusive low temperature technology and SuperPure extraction methods to obtain maximum recovery (35%) of the beneficial anythocyanin phytonutrients.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/_thesynergycompany_blackcurrant.jpg
Catalase EnzymeCatalase Enzyme
Free radicals are constant nags for our eyes and whole bodies. Luckily we have an elaborate defense system to combat these damaging buggers, including a powerful enzyme known as catalase. Catalase works at lightning speeds and is very efficient; it is able to convert and neutralize thousands of free radicals at a time. Yes, our bodies make these enzymes, but a stress-prone organ like the eye can quickly fall out of balance with this defense system, and be sorely lacking in them. This is when supplementation can do wonders! Our natural catalase enzyme comes from a SuperPure extraction of fermented beans.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_catalaseenzyme.jpg
ElderberryElderberry Sambucus nigra Certified Organic
Elderberries have been a reliable and popular folk remedy during cold and flu season for centuries and are a favorite among natural practitioners. Native Americans used these tart, dark berries for all sorts of ailments. We now know that their incredible roster of nutrients, including flavonoids, tannins, amino acids, carotenoids, rutin, and vitamin C, likely account for their powerful health punch. Ongoing research shows many wonderful gifts from this immune-boosting black berry, including its ability to support healthy eyes. Our certified organic elderberries are grown in Northern Europe in pristine, carefully monitored conditions. At their peak of succulence, we harvest and fresh freeze-dry these edible fruits to properly preserve and protect their full spectrum of phytonutrients.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_elderberry.jpg
Gardenia Fruit ExtractGardenia Fruit Extract Gardenia jasminoides Ellis
Gardenia fruit, used for hundreds of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine, grows on a beautifully scented flowering evergreen shrub. It contains a very special and extremely rare class of colorful compounds called crocins (including crocetins). Research indicates these rare carotenoids appear to support a healthy retina, along with a list of other healthful contributions. Due to their rarity, cost, and difficult extraction process, very few formulas ever use the supremely powerful potential of this class of phytonutrients. Our wildly grown gardenia fruits are extracted using our exclusive SuperPure processing to uncover their rare treasures inside.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_gardeniafruitextract.jpg
Grape Seed ExtractGrape Seed Extract Vitis vinifera Certified Organic
Hailing from the Mediterranean region, grapes have been revered for thousands of years as part of a healthy diet, for their medicinal properties, in religious ceremony, and of course in making wine. It’s no wonder that modern science now confirms the profound health-supporting properties of grapes, mostly linked to the compounds found in their tiny seeds called proanthocyanidins. These flavonoid jewels are particularly useful for supporting healthy blood vessel integrity throughout our whole bodies, including in our eyes and our cardiovascular systems. Grape seed extract may be particularly useful when it comes to lipid peroxidation, the process whereby free radicals damage the fatty membranes encasing our cells, leading to cell damage.
One of the greatest challenges in today’s world is finding pure, organic grapes as the vast majority are heavily sprayed with chemicals, pesticides, fungicides, and often treated with sulfites. We spent two years searching for 100% certified organic grape seeds bursting with polyphenols and proanthocyanidins. With our SuperPure extract processing, we’ve created a one-of-a-kind, organic grape seed extract of the highest purity and potency to support your healthy heart, eyes, skin, blood vessels and much more. Get all the benefits of grapes without the added sugars and possible chemical exposures!http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_grapeseedextract.jpg
KaleKale Brassica oleracea var acephela Certified Organic
Just like broccoli, watercress, and other beneficial cruciferous vegetables, kale contains an abundance of the special compounds called glucosinolates, which are making headlines for their powerful detoxification properties and ability to support healthy cells. Our organic kale powder also retains the necessary and elusive myrosinase enzyme, which activates these glucosinolates within your body so that you can make good use of them. And don’t forget the lutein and zeaxanthin (so good for your eyes) and all the other carotenoids, vitamins and minerals that make kale so powerfully nutritious.
Nearly all other kale powders are void of these health-supporting nutrients due to their processing with high heat and overexposure to oxygen. To preserve and protect all of these special compounds requires a unique freeze-drying process that keeps everything in tact — something that Synergy utilizes.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/1_thesynergycompany_kale.jpg
Lycium (Goji) Berry ExtractLycium (Goji) Berry Extract Lycium barbarum Certified Organic
Traditional Chinese and Tibetan Medicine has been using goji berries for centuries for their ascribed longevity-boosting qualities. These vibrant, nutrient-dense red berries boast a diverse set of carotenoids, as well as amino acids and trace minerals. Their powerful antioxidant properties and polysaccharides also help to keep our immune systems in tiptop shape.
Our certified organic extract is made the traditional way following the ancient principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. We use a special process whereby the herb is brewed in pure, filtered water for an extended period of time to draw out its many valuable compounds. The aromatic oils that are released during this process are captured and reintegrated into the final extract. This result is a whole-spectrum, “co-activated” extract of unparalleled quality and health potential.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/_thesynergycompany_gojiberry.jpg
Marigold Flower Extract (Lutein/Zeaxanthin)Marigold Flower Extract (Lutein/Zeaxanthin) Calendula officinalis
These bright yellow brilliant flowers are rich in an incredible trio of eye-loving carotenoids: lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin. These compounds are highly concentrated in the macula region of our retinas. A healthy macula dense in these yellowish pigments is what allows us to see details — what is called visual acuity. These pigments are like internal sunglasses, protecting our delicate eye surfaces from the ravages of light. Strong evidence suggests that many of us do not get nearly adequate amounts of zeaxanthin and lutein, both of which are sadly lacking in today's modern diets. A nutritional cousin of lutein and zeaxanthin called meso-zeaxanthin is produced from lutein in the retina itself, a transformation that slows down as we get older, hence the need to supplement these in their pure, natural form every day. Countless studies indicate that these carotenoids are invaluable to eye health at relevant concentrations.
Our lutein and zeaxanthin are extracted with our unique SuperPure processing method that disallows the use of any and all toxic chemical solvents (because who wants these anywhere near their eyes?). We use only the "free" forms of lutein and zeaxanthin, which research shows are up to two times or more bioavailable than the cheaper, more commonly used ester form, and are therefore considered the gold standard.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_marigoldflowerextract.jpg
Saffron Flower ExtractSaffron Flower Extract Crocus sativus Certified Organic
Saffron, with its unique orange color and savory flavor, is the world's most expensive and revered spice. It contains a very special and extremely rare class of colorful compounds called crocins (including crocetins). Research indicates these rare carotenoids appear to support a healthy retina, along with a list of other healthful contributions. Due to their rarity, cost, and difficult extraction process, very few formulas ever use the supremely powerful potential of this class of phytonutrients. To create our certified organic saffron flower extract, the delicate stigmas are collected from saffron flowers growing in only the most pristine organic conditions. We then use our exclusive SuperPure processing to gently but powerfully concentrate the desired crocin components tucked inside. The result is a rare extract of unparalleled benefit.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_saffronflowerextract.jpg
Sea Buckthorn Fruit ExtractSea Buckthorn Fruit Extract Hippophae rhamnoides Certified Organic
The bright-orange sea buckthorn berry has generated a burst of enthusiasm in the health community due to its diverse nutritional content. The natural carotenoids, tocopherols, and Omega-7 fatty acids in sea buckthorn berry oil may support a normal inflammatory response, and healthy moisture content and lubrication of our eyes. Our certified organic sea buckthorn extract is created using a specialty processing method that uses high pressure and low temperatures to recover the most important, health-beneficial compounds locked inside this unique berry.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/thesynergycompany_seabuckthornfruit.jpg
SOD EnzymeSOD Enzyme
One of the most powerful, protective enzymes within our bodies is known as superoxide dismutase (SOD). SOD works at lightning speeds to protect all our cells from free radicals, converting and neutralizing thousands of them at a time. Our highly stress-prone hearts and eyes are particularly sensitive to this type of damage and thus have a great need for the hard work of this super enzyme. While your body makes SOD, it can sometimes fall short, making supplementation of this powerful enzyme so very valuable. Our superoxide dismutase is derived from a rare type of melon fruit bursting with this unique enzyme. In a patented process, we gently extract the enzyme, using dozens of melons to get the highly concentrated amount needed in a single daily serving. This way, you can benefit from one of the most powerful, cell-protective natural compounds in the world!http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/138_thesynergycompany_sodenzyme.jpg
Tomato Extract (Lycopene)Tomato Extract (Lycopene) Solanaceae Solanum lycopersicum Certified Organic
Your eye lenses love lycopene. The crystalline lens is a transparent structure in our eye that helps to refract light to be focused on the retina so we can see. The lens can be susceptible to damage and oxidation just like the rest of our eyes. It is also the site for cataract formation. The research on lycopene and eye health is focused around its positive effect on the health of our lens, a critical piece of the puzzle when it comes to keeping our eyes clear and focused. Our certified organic tomatoes are cultivated in Europe to create fruits with a high density of lycopene. Extraction using our SuperPure processing further concentrates this powerful phytonutrient so that you and your eyes can fully benefit.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/tomatoextract_thesynergycompany.jpg
WatercressWatercress Nasturtium officinale Certified Organic
No longer just a decoration for your plate, this spicy veggie from the notable cruciferous family is experiencing a resurgence after several recent studies have uncovered its highly promising health benefits, especially when it comes to keeping your DNA and cells healthy. After searching all over the world for the very best watercress, we discovered that current suppliers in the market are not doing what it takes to preserve the very delicate glucosinolate and myrosinase phytonutrients that make this vibrant green leafy so special. So we decided to do the research and to be directly involved with making it ourselves! We established an exclusive relationship with an organic farm that has been operating in pristine aquifer-fed springs for over 100 years to produce the most consistently high glucosinolate content watercress of any farm in the world — one that has been the focal point of very positive clinical research. And we spent 5+ years developing the tests and highly sensitive fresh freeze-drying methods needed to keep the vital compounds within alive. The result is our exclusive, organic watercress, overflowing with a full spectrum of glucosoinolate and myrosinase compounds plus an assortment of other goodies like quercetin, lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, iron, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, calcium, and vitamin E.http://d187gmltvftxhn.cloudfront.net/media/glossary/ingredients/watercress_thesynergycompany.jpg
Wild Pine Bark ExtractWild Pine Bark Extract Pinus pinaster
Proanthocyanadins are hard to pronounce (pro-anth-o-cy-an-a-dins) and quite uncommon, but fortunately are found in abundance in the bark of a certain species of pine tree. These flavonoid jewels are particularly useful for supporting healthy blood vessel integrity throughout our whole bodies, including in our eyes. Wild pine bark extract may be particularly useful for supporting healthy cell membranes, which are composed of important lipids prone to peroxidation. Healthy hearts, eyes, skin, blood vessels and much more rely on the antioxidant activity that an ingredient like pine bark extract can provide.
