Recent Study Show The Importance We Place On Our Visions Health
Dr. Jeffrey Anshel of the Ocular Nutrition Society said,“if people are at risk for heart disease they typically make lifestyle modifications." This survey found that people are as concerned about their eyes but do not know the simple steps they can incorporate into their daily lives to take care of them.
- 78% rank vision as the most important sense
- 89% do not know Zeaxanthin is a key nutrient for eye health
- 66% were not aware Lutein plays a key role in eye health
- 60% were unaware Omega-3’s have a role in eye health
Iceland Health Omega-3 Vision Defense contains all of these vision health nutrients
The Importance of Omega-3 DHA for The Eye
DHA concentration is found in greatest abundance in the disk membranes of the outer segments of photoreceptor cells of our retina. Our bodies cannot make DHA Omega-3s, and rely on our diet or supplementation to obtain it. Iceland Health’s Omega Vision Defense delivers 450mg of DHA daily per serving.
Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Lycopene in Retinal and Macula Tissue
Lutein and Zeaxanthin (along with Lycopene) are considered “food for your eyes”. Besides the potential antioxidant benefits, Lutein and Zeaxanthin both support a healthy macula – the part of your eye that focuses on minutia: reading fine print, driving, and identifying small objects.*
Especially in individuals at high risk of ocular oxidative stress, these carotenoids may support your body's defenses against age-related conditions.*
Bilberry, Blueberry, and Grape Seed Extract for Eye Protection*
The plant-derived Bilberry, Blueberry, and Grape Seed extracts in Omega Vision Defense deliver powerful antioxidants –protecting the eye from UV light and glare.* Blueberries are a natural source of lutein and zeaxanthin–essential support for age related macular condition prevention, and also contain natural Vitamin A and Vitamin C.*
Zinc & Copper Synergistically Support Vision
A National Eye Institute-sponsored Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) published in 2001 found that for individuals at high risk for Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) or experiencing early-stage AMD, a daily intake of 40 to 80 mg zinc may help slow the progression of the disease.* Copper is recommended to counteract higher levels of zinc.
Nutrient Quick Facts
Omega-3 Fish Oil (specifically DHA) feeds the eye
In fact, our retina has the highest concentration of DHA in our entire bodies. Many vision supplements do not include DHA. Omega-3 may also hamper dry eye syndrome by increasing tear production.*
Considered a carotenoid, Lycopene helps provide overall health for the eye as it ages.* The National Academy of science recommends that you include plenty of carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables in your daily diet such as Spinach.*
Lutein and Zeaxanthin
These two compounds serve as a kind of “sunblock” for your retina – helping to filter the damaging effects of direct sunlight.*
Bilberry extract contains antioxidant bioflavonoids that promote ocular health (particularly night vision) and support your eye against age-related conditions. Grape Seed extract is packed with antioxidants as well.*
Zinc & Copper
Zinc is for individuals diagnosed as being at high risk for (or in the early stages of) age-related macular degeneration.* Zinc is an essential trace mineral, highly concentrated in the retina and choroid, as well as the vascular tissue layer under the retina. Copper is required to balance the body’s Zinc intake.*
