Featuring both lutein and zeaxanthin isomers (RR-zeaxanthin and RS-zeaxanthin), Lutemax 2020 is specially formulated to enhance visual health and minimize photo-oxidative damage.
As a key part of VISION REVIVAL, you are ensured of optimal intake of the three macular carotenoids that play a role in the health of your eyes. Their ability of filtering high-energy blue light helps keep your eyes retinas safe and free to maintain ideal visual clarity.
Bilberry has been a traditional option in treating various eye disorders and promoting ideal vision. Several studies have proven that it has a positive effect on maintaining healthy eyes, as well as in minimizing the effects of macular degeneration, cataract formation, and different eye disorders.
Bilberry anthocyanin, paired with vitamin E, was determined to be 97% successful in preventing cataract progression. It’s also tested (in a separate study) to shorten the time needed for your eyes to adapt to dark environments, from 6.5 minutes compared to 9 minutes with subjects not taking bilberry anthocyanin.
Other studies have provided supporting scientific evidence for the benefits of bilberry when related to ocular disorders and loss of eyesight. It was able to protect a key autofluorescence pigment from photooxidation, helping maintain ideal reception of light. Another experiment showed that 73% of its subjects experienced improvements on the symptoms of asthenopia and contrast sensitivity after 4 weeks.
Eyebright (Euphrasia Officinalis) Extract
Eyebright has been historically associated with taking care of various visual issues, although scientific support for its effectiveness is somewhat limited. However, there’s at least one study, focusing on eyebright as a conjunctivitis treatment, that offers important evidence.
In that study, 65 people with conjunctivitis were treated with eyedrops featuring eyebright, regularly administered in a 2-week period. Out of the 65, 53 completely recovered, while 11 had a “clear improvement”.
Cataracts are primarily caused by the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGE), and thus stopping this formation is a great way of preventing cataracts to appear.
In one study, rutin has been proven to hamper the glycation of such proteins. Another experiment done in wistar rat pups observed how rutin’s restoration of lenticular antioxidant enzymes together with the reducing effect on malondialdehyde formation decrease the chances of cataracts appearing.
Lycopene has been scientifically proven to be an effective and important antioxidant for the body, and studies have analyzed its effects as an anti-cataract ingredient in supplements.
In one study’s testing group, only 9% experience dense nuclear opacity development on the eyes, compared to 83% of subjects in the control group. The development of cataracts has also been delayed, with only 35% of the eyes having mature cataracts as opposed to 100% of eyes with no oral lycopene feeding involved.
Grape Seed Extract (95% Proanthocyanidins)
With the potent antioxidant properties found in grape seed extracts, it’s considered an effective way of shoring up your eyes’ defenses from degradation caused by oxidative damage. The cells in the retina are found to be protected by the antioxidants from the extract, helping maintain optimal vision even in low-light conditions.
Consisting of oligomeric proanthocyanins, VISION REVIVAL's grape seed extract also aids in slowing down or preventing the development of macular degeneration, letting it assist in keeping your eyesight clear even through your busy daily routine through the years.
Zinc Bisglycinate Chelate
Zinc is found to have an effect in slowing down macular degeneration but works best together with a suitable mix of vitamins and antioxidants. VISION REVIVAL features this ideal combination, as well as zinc, in the form of Zinc Bisglycinate Chelate.
Studies have shown that zinc and other nutrients help stop progression of advanced AMD, and with the right amount of such ingredients VISION REVIVAL is certainly specially formulated to keep your eyes healthy. When taken with other important vitamins and nutrients, zinc is also been observed to restore night vision by 4 times compared to subjects not taking any zinc.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a strong and effective antioxidant, and by helping address oxidative stress as well as take on various nerve damage symptoms, it aids in lowering the risk of diabetic eye damage when diabetes is poorly controlled. It helps optimise nerve blood flow and improve nerve conduction velocity, making it suitable for enhancing overall nerve health.
With the accumulation of oxidative stress contributing to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts, Vitamin E’s antioxidant nature makes it a suitable nutrient for preventing or treating such conditions. VISION REVIVAL contains Vitamin E to help minimize the development of AMD and cataracts, keeping vision clear in older people.
