“Degeneration of the macula, the center of the eye’s retina, is the leading cause of blindness in older adults. Unlike cataracts, in which the diseased lens can be replaced, there is no cure for age-related degeneration (AMD). Therefore, efforts are aimed at disease prevention or delaying the progression of AMD.➀”

Palm Harbor, Florida, November 24, 2015, Scientific journals, such as The Journal of Opthamology, are replete with studies that show the efficacy of such nutrients as Lutein➁ and the herb called Bilberry. Flavonoids such as Quercetin have also shown beneficial effects. It is imperative to halt the oxidative damage process that takes place in the eye when an insufficient amount of antioxidants, such as Grape Seed Extract➂, are present. Some substances have a two-fold effect, they may be an anti-inflammatory and also have an antioxidant effect as well. Even some amino acids have proven of great value to the eye, such as Taurine and Acetyl L-Cysteine, the latter being a precursor to L-Glutathione which is the most abundant antioxidant in the human body.

Since the studies support all of these nutrients on an individual basis, single-ingredient formulas abound on the marketplace. What they are missing out on is the effect of Synergism, where the combination of nutrients makes each one more potent when together. The objective is to win the battle against age related macular degeneration and other such eye problems. One must keep in mind that lutein is one of the carotenoids found in the retina. Lutein is present in high concentrations in the macula, where it is an efficient absorber of blue light. By preventing a substantial amount of the blue light entering the eye from reaching the underlying structures involved in vision, lutein protects against light-induced oxidative damage, which is thought to play a role in the pathology of age-related macular degeneration.➃

If each of these ingredients are effective when used alone, imagine the effect when combined in a well thought-out nutritional eye formula. UltaLife has been leading the pack when it comes to cutting edge formulas, and their Natural Vision Support is no exception.
