Bausch and Lomb Ocuvite Complete - 60 Soft Gels
Bausch and Lomb Ocuvite Complete is especially formulated using nutrients that have been shown to maintain retinal health.
Ocuvite Complete contains Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as Vitamins C & E, and the mineral Zinc. Monting clinical evidence supports the involvement of these ocular nutrients in maintaining retinal health as age progresses.
The human body is unable to synthesize lutein, zeaxanthin, or omega-3 fatty acids, and the levels of these ingredients in an average Western diet is inadequate to maintain retinal health. Therefore, adequate levels of these nutrients are most easily consumed through nutritional supplementation.
While there are more than 600 carotenoids in nature, the human retina selectively accumulate only two: lutein and zeaxanthin. The concentration of lutein and zeaxanthin is highest in the macula, which is the part of the retina which helps produce the sharp central cision needed for activities like reading and driving. Lutein and zeaxanthin are thought to protect the macula by absorbing harmful blue light from the sun's rays and by acting as antioxidants that neutralize harmful free radicals.
In addition to their widely accepted benefits to brain development and heart health, Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) also help maintain retinal health. DHA is essential for the proper functioning of the retina because it has a structural role in preserving the integrity of retinal photoreceptor outer segment membranes, as well as a functional role in the photo-transduction process.
