Your eyes need special nutrients to protect your vision from age-related conditions such as macular degeneration and cataracts. Because you are continually exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight and high energy visible blue light, it pays to start early in keeping your eyes healthy.
Total Vision Care uses therapeutic doses of 20 mg of lutein and 2.5 mg of zeaxanthin in natural oils extracted from Marigold (Tagetes erecta). Lutein and zeaxanthin protect the macula and photoreceptors in the retina from oxidative stress, as well as helping to filter out high energy visible blue light.
Reduces the risk of developing cataracts and Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a potent antioxidant that may protect the lens and the retina from free radical damage and reduce the risk of cataract development. Alpha Lipoic Acid increases glutathione levels by enhancing the recycling of vitamin C and vitamin E, reducing the burden on glutathione. Glutathione protects the lens of the eye from UV rays and high energy visible blue light rays, which can cause cataracts and digital eye burn.
Total Vision Care combines Alpha Lipoic Acid with bilberry fruit and grape seed extract. Together, these antioxidants play an important role in protecting the lens of the eye and the retina from free radical damage. They support visual acuity, reduce the risk of developing digital eye burn, cataracts, AMD, and slow the progression of AMD.
Total Vision Care uses Omega Suspension Technology (OST). Omega 3 fatty acids have powerful anti-inflammatory 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 the nutrients to the eyes, increasing macular pigment density, and helping to slow the progression of advanced AMD.
Recognized by the Vision Institute of Canada
Total Vision Care is the only vision care supplement recognized by The Vision Institute of Canada. It is a comprehensive formula that follows the clinically proven AREDS and AREDS2 formula to support total eye health for adults of all ages. It goes further by including alpha lipoic acid, bilberry, citrus bioflavonoids, and grape seed extract for additional antioxidant protection.
Absorb what you ingest
Your body only uses what it absorbs. Our award-winning Omega Suspension Technology (OST) suspends the ingredients in healthy omega oils to protect the nutrients from losing potency, and enables your body to absorb more, giving you results you can feel.
