Platinum Naturals Total Vision Care
Taking preventative action to fight against conditions like age-related macular degeneration and cataracts is something you should start as early as possible. Your eyes require specialized nutrition as they are continually exposed to the damaging environmental effects of sunlight. Supporting overall eye health, Total Vision CareTM offers a comprehensive formula that protects your eyes from free radical damage while supporting night vision.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin
Total vision careTM uses therapeutic doses of 20 mg of lutein (11.3 mg free lutein) and 0.6 mg of zeaxanthin. Lutein and zeaxanthin are fat soluble nutrients/antioxidants that are naturally found in fat. The fat plays an important role for absorption and stability (maintaining its potency). Total vision careTM uses only lutein and zeaxanthin that are in natural oils, naturally extracted from Marigold (Tagetes erecta). The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are found in the macula in high concentrations and may play a protective role in the progression of macular degeneration. Lutein and Zeaxanthin protect the macula and photoreceptor outer segments throughout the retina from oxidative stress and play a role in reducing the impact of reactive oxygen species, as well as acting as a blue light filter. Although lutein and zeaxanthin are not essential nutrients, studies are beginning to suggest that they fit the criteria for conditionally essential nutrients.
