Air pollutants, computer screens, UV light, smoke, dust, solvents, and so much more — all of these common irritants can plague the delicate layers of the eye. Now combine these often-unavoidable factors with others, like aging and nutrient deficiencies, and it’s no wonder that so many of us face progressive eye issues!
With the increase in modern technologies that affect our eyes (we’re looking at you, virtual work!), the number of these cases is expected to continue to increase. In fact, the National Eye Institute (NEI) estimates that the number of Americans suffering from the most common eye diseases - like macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinopathies and cataracts - will double between 2010 and 2050.
Eye health supplements are starting to gain popularity, but they aren’t all created equal. We want to share with you what sets ours apart. We’ll dig into each of the three categories of eye-supporting compounds we include so you can SEE for yourself why our formula is so comprehensive!
Part 1: Carotenoids
Carotenoids are the most widespread group of pigments in nature, responsible for the red, orange, or yellow colors of many vegetables and fruits. One common class of natural carotenoids is the commonly known beta carotene, found in foods like carrots and sweet potatoes.
The cool thing about carotenoids is that many of properties they have in nature are the very reason they help support our eye health when we consume them! Carotenoids absorb visible light during the process of photosynthesis in algae and plants – they protect plants from the damaging effects of too much light. When we consume them, they have similar beneficial effects on our eyes.
Our Eye Protector® formula contains four important types of Carotenoid Protectors:
Part 2: Flavonoids
Flavonoids are a group of plant compounds that give a variety of colors and flavors to fruits and vegetables.
Certain flavonoids with deep purple pigments have been studied for their ability to support eye health and prevent the decline of vision and common ocular diseases.
While many of these purple-pigmented foods have health benefits, our sources have particularly high concentrations and use our SuperPure® process to safely and carefully extract their potent benefits. Here’s a look at the flavonoids included in Eye Protector®:
Part 3: Enzyme Protectors
The final category of compounds that make Eye Protector® so potent are its enzyme protectors. They act as an army of protection for your eyes, cleaning up and defending from toxic debris that can impact your eye health in the short and long term. They do this by neutralizing free radicals that cause damage to all parts of your eye.
These potent compounds are rarely found in other eye health supplements:

Our carefully formulated and thoughtfully sourced ingredients make Eye Protector® unique from any other eye health supplement available. Whether you’re looking to protect your long-term health from far too much screen time or hoping to boost your declining vision as you age, the powerful plant compounds in Eye Protector® can support your eye health.
