Supplementation for Eye Health

By: Dr. Mary Nagai

There are many simple things that can be done to protect eye health and vision, including wearing sunglasses year round, reducing exposure to blue light and UV rays and regular exercise. Clinical studies have shown that one of the most effective ways to protect our vision is through a multi-supplement formulated to support eye health.

Total Vision Care™ is the only vision care supplement recognized by the The Vision Institute of Canada. It is a comprehensive formula that is based on the clinically proven AREDS and AREDS2 formula to support total eye health for adults of all ages. Total Vision Care helps to remove harmful free radicals that may damage the lens and retina and may lead to the development of age-related eye diseases including cataracts and AMD.

Supports visual acuity under all light conditions (glare, day and night vision). Total Vision Care combines high-potency antioxidant vitamins A, C and E and minerals copper and zinc recommended by AREDS. The synergistic activity amongst the highpotency antioxidants reduces the free radical damage experienced by the lens and retina.

Supports colour vision. The retina is rich in vitamin A, lutein and zeaxanthin. Vitamin A is an essential component of the retina and supports dim-light vision, colour vision and normal retina function. Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoid pigments that support visual acuity and help scavenge harmful reactive oxygen species generated by blue light and UV rays.

Reduces the risk of developing cataracts and AMD. Total Vision Care includes alpha lipoic acid, bilberry fruit and grape seed extract. The antioxidant power of grape seed extract is 20x greater than vitamin E and 50x greater than vitamin C3. Alpha lipoic acid plays an important role in helping to maintain optimal amounts of glutathione and vitamins C and E in the lens of the eyes. The lens of the eye is one of the most abundant sources of glutathione in the body. Together these antioxidants protect the lens of the eye and the retina from free radical damage. They support visual acuity, reduce the risk of developing cataracts and AMD and slows the progression of AMD.

Eye development. Total Vision Care is formulated using Platinum Naturals’ Omega Suspension Technology™ (OST®) that improves the absorption of nutrients. Omega-3 fatty acids (docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentanoic acid (EPA)) have powerful antiinflammatory properties that are abundant in the retina, particularly in the photoreceptors. They are essential for ocular development and retinal function. OST optimizes the absorption and delivery of lutein and zeaxanthin to the eyes, increasing macular pigment density. AREDS2 reported that dietary supplementation with lutein (10mg), zeaxanthin (2mg), DHA (350mg) and EPA (650 mg) may slow the progression of advanced AMD by 20-25%.

Total Vision Care protects and helps maintain healthy vision through the synergy of the ingredients and the improved absorption from OST for results you can see.
