Why take a Vital Vision +?
Cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) are the leading causes of visual impairment and acquired blindness affecting millions of aging seniors. Nutrition is one promising way to prevent or delay the progression of these diseases.
Lutein and zeaxanthin filter harmful high-energy blue wavelengths of light and help protect and maintain healthy cells in the eyes. Of the 600 carotenoids found in nature, only these two are deposited in high quantities in the retina (macula) of the eye. Studies have shown that eyes with AMD have up to 32% less lutein than eyes without AMD. Other studies have demonstrated that increased lutein intake may have positive effects on visual acuity.

When to start taking Vital Vision +?
The ingredients in this formulation have been specifically selected to provide and protect the eyes from harmful high-energy light waves, such as some ultraviolet rays in sunlight to maintain eyesight. Studies suggest that high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin in eye tissue are associated with better vision, especially in dim light or where glare is a problem. Diets rich in these two antioxidants appear to protect against age-related eye diseases.
