SkinDerm Nutraceutics Eye-Assist has been specially formulated to support normal healthy eye function and macular health. Eye-Assist provides a daily combination of powerful macula carotenoids with specifically chosen herbs, vitamins and minerals known for their eye support properties.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin (can be made from lutein) are carotenoids present in high concentrations within the macular pigment of the eye. People with macular degeneration have, on average, 70% less lutein in their eyes than those with healthy vision. Poor dietary intake of lutein is believed to contribute to the breakdown of this vital part of the retina.
The macular pigment protects the macula of the eye by acting as an antioxidant and absorbing and filtering harmful ‘blue’ light from phone and television/computer screens. The macula of the eye is responsible for our central vision, allowing us to see fine detail clearly – essential for activities like reading and driving.
Powerful antioxidants Bilberry and Pine Bark have also been included to further support maintenance of eye function. A recent study shows that a combination of Bilberry and Pine Bark can help maintain normal healthy pressure within the eye. The blue-red antioxidant pigments in Bilberry help protect the membranes of light sensitive and other cells in the eyes. This can help maintain blood vessels and normal circulation within the eye. Pine Bark is known for it’s ability to support healthy circulation and bloody pressure.
Research suggests that, compared with placebo, people taking a supplement with vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids, zinc and omega-3 fish oils are less likely to experience progression of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
