Fish Oils (Omega-3) - Borage Oil
Omega-3 essential fatty acids (DHA and EPA) from coldwater fish. DHA is a fatty acid from the omega-3 family essential to the structure of the membranes of the photoreceptors in the retina. EPA contributes to the maintenance and proper working of the tear film.
Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) from borage oil. The anti-inflammatory properties of GLA help maintain the normal secretion of tears (quantity and quality).
Lutein and ZeaxanthinLutein and zeaxanthin are two yellow-orange pigments that make up the majority of the macular pigments in the retina. Their role is to filter (visible) blue light, which can cause oxidative stress. These carotenoids therefore help protect the retina from oxidation.
Natural AstaxanthinAstaxanthin is a red pigment with powerful antioxidant properties, which is concentrated in the cone cells of the fovea, at the centre of the macular zone of the retina. Astaxanthin filters blue light and helps protect the retina from oxidative stress.
Antioxidant vitamins and trace elements
Micro-encapsulated zincZinc is an essential mineral, which is selectively concentrated in the retina, iris, optic nerve, cornea and lens. Zinc helps stabilise cellular membranes, which protects them against lipid peroxidation. Micro-encapsulated zinc means there is no unpleasant fish odour or after taste.
Alpha Lipoic AcidAlpha lipoic acid is a very powerful water- and fat-soluble antioxidant, which eliminates free radicals and regenerates other antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E.
Antioxidant Vitamins and Trace ElementsVitamins A, C, B2, B12, natural vitamin E and selenium are fundamental for retinal function and good quality vision
Blueberry and blackcurrant anthocyanins
Anthocyanins are antioxidants and free radical scavengers. Anthocyanins improve the oxygen supply to the capillaries of the eyes, which helps reduce dark circles. They help improve visual acuity at night; they provide a quicker adjustment to darkness and promote restoration of visual acuity after exposure to glare.
