Three-Part Protection for Your Peepers

Three-Part Protection for Your Peepers

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:

Free Lutein & Free Zeaxanthin:

Derived from marigold flowers, organic kale, watercress, goji berry, and sea buckthorn, our free forms of lutein and zeaxanthin are 2x as potent as the more common Ester forms of these compounds found in most eye health supplements. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are lacking in most diets but provide UV protection for the retina and help maintain detailed vision.

Astaxanthin:

Derived from freshwater red algae, our astaxanthin is purely extracted in a process that preserves its utmost potency. Astaxanthin benefits include supporting eye fatigue, blurriness, blood vessel health, the lenses of the eye, and preserving the detail of your vision.

Lycopene:

Concentrated from organic tomatoes, our lycopene is extracted without the use of harsh solvents as is typically the case. This powerful antioxidant is supportive for the eye lens and helps protect against cataracts.

Crocins:

Extracted from gardenia fruit and saffron extracts, crocins are rarely found in other eye supplements, but research has shown that they can protect against blue and white light damage to the retina.

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®:

Proanthocyanidins:

Derived from Oregon grape seed and wild pine bark, proanthocyanidins act as powerful antioxidants and may help to strengthen capillaries and reduce the progression of certain eye conditions like retinopathy.

Anthocyanins:

Concentrated from blackcurrant, bilberry, aronia, and elderberry, anthocyanins also act as antioxidants and may help protect your eyes from UV damage, cataracts, glaucoma, and other eye health concerns.

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:

Glucosinolates and Myrosinase:

Derived from organic kale and watercress, these special class of compounds promote the production of glutathione, the so called “master antioxidant” and a potent free radical scavenger that promotes cellular health in the eye.

Superoxide Dismutase and Catalase:

Extracted from melon extract and fermented legume extract, these unique compounds are extremely rare in other supplements, but extremely effective at neutralizing free radical damage.

See the Difference

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. Give it a try and SEE for yourself!
