Light is essential for us to see, but can also be damaging. Unless the eye has adequate protection, light creates harmful free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules, which if left unchecked can severely damage cells) in the eye. This can lead to impaired eyesight, particularly as we grow older. Smoke, pollution and even our diet (e.g., hydrogenated fats, alcohol) can also create harmful free radicals. The body makes its own antioxidants to quench these free radicals, but it also relies on natural antioxidants in our diet for full protection.
This powerful formulation contains both vitamin C and zinc which are antioxidants that contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress
Two natural, yellow antioxidants that are particularly important for eyesight are Lutein and Zeaxanthin. The eye’s ‘macula’, which sits within the retina, is often called the ‘yellow spot’ because it collects Lutein and Zeaxanthin. These antioxidants are believed to help protect the retina from free radical damage. Antioxidants also help protect the eye’s delicate lens, and its ‘rod’ and ‘cone’ cells, from free radicals. Without sufficient antioxidant protection, the lens can become hard and cloudy. ‘Rods’ help us see in dim light, and ‘cones’ in bright light and sharp images.
30mg Lutein Complex (5%), 30mg Zeaxanthin Complex (5%), 60mg Vitamin C, 18mg Bilberry standardised extract (25% anthocyanidins), 5mg (7.5iu) Vitamin E, 2mg Vitamin B2, 3mg Zinc, 250µg (833iu) Vitamin A, 75µg Selenium, 261mg Tomato.
Tomato powder, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, vegetable magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide.
Take 1-2 capsules a day, with meals.
B vitamins may turn urine bright yellow. This is normal.

My husband and I have been taking these along with Astaxanthin & Blackcurrant for a while now. We both suffer from eyestrain due to spending a lot of time on the internet and reading. While taking these we've found them very effective, our symptoms only appear when we run out of them. They contain ingredients necessary for eye health and we thoroughly recommend anyone taking them for this purpose.

This is a brilliant product especially when used with Astaxanthin and blackcurrant. I always have more energy and have less eye strain when I take them, and really notice a big difference when I am late ordering my next lot!!!

Really good especially when used in conjunction with Astaxanthin and Blackcurrent - I have found a definite improvement.
