LuteinandZeaxanthinare two key nutrients inOcuplex®which appear to be more closely correlated with protection from macular degeneration as well as cataract development. BothLuteinandZeaxanthinare highly concentrated in the macula of the eye and responsible for filtering out visible blue light, which may cause damage to eye tissue. Researchers believe that Lutein and Zeaxanthin protect the macula from light-induced damage by dying it yellow, thereby acting as our internal "natural sunglasses". As potent antioxidants, bothLuteinandZeaxanthinalso provide protection to eye tissue by neutralizing free radicals.
Ocuplexcontains nutrients (Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Tocotrienols, Beta-Carotene- an antioxidant form of Vitamin A, andBilberry), which are most beneficial for optimal eye health as they provide protection from free radical/oxidative damage that results from many normal metabolic processes; exposure to oxidants in cigarette smoke; or environmental factors.
