Ingredients & DescriptionLutein and Zeaxanthin were identified in 1995 as the only two carotenoid antioxidants specific to lens and macular health. Selectively accumulated from plasma and deposited in the lens, macula, and lungs, Lutein and Zeaxanthin filter light and serve as potent free radical scavengers for the retina. The macular pigment, composed of Lutein and Zeaxanthin, functions as a color filter to protect the light sensitive photoreceptor cells (responsible for visual acuity) from light-originated free radical damage.
Vinpocetine, an extract from periwinkle seeds, has been well researched and widely used in Europe for over twenty years. Vinpocetine has been shown to facilitate cerebral metabolism which affects the retina, the front part of the brain. It increases blood flow, steps up the concentration of ATP (the energy carrying molecules of the cells) and thus improves utilization of glucose and oxygen in the brain and retina. Vinpocetine also increases the turnover of norepinephrine and serotonin. It inhibits abnormal platelet aggregation, improves red blood cell elasticity, and inhibits an enzyme (GMP) that causes arterial constriction and blood flow reduction. Thus, arteries relax, blood pressure normalizes and blood flow increases.
