Description: Every day we subject our eyes to a host of enemies including: fluorescent lights, computer screens, sunlight, smoke, wind, pollen, dust, and free radicals. Still, nearly 25% of the population manages to reach age 65 with relatively clear, focused vision and healthy, cataract-free eyes. How is this possible? Research indicates that those who avoid eye problems receive a regular, plentiful supply of nutrients vital to healthy eyes. Without proper nourishment to help compensate for the damaging effects of daily living, the clarity, comfort, and strength of our vision could become compromised.
Rarely do we give the health of our eyes much attention. A vivid sunset, a graceful dancer, or a lush garden might completely rivet our attention, but we seldom notice the sense of sight itself. Current research shows, however, that much can, and should, be done for our eyes. Just as the body requires calcium to maintain healthy bones, eye tissues also need proper nutrition to help scavenge free radicals and promote healthy eyesight.
An often-overlooked herb named Eyebright, one of the fabulous ingredients in Orbitol, helps ease over sensitivity to light*. In addition, Eyebright helps to filter out various forms of light that can produce oxidative damage*. Eyebright extract contains natural antioxidants and provides a rich source of niacin, vitamin A, and riboflavin.
The effects of Bilberry extracts on vision have been known for a long time. Bilberry extract contains substantial levels of zinc, iron, and phosphorus. Which helps support already healthy night vision*, and enhance already healthy blood flow to the eyes*. Bilberry extract supplies the eye with bioflavonoids, particularly anthocyanosides, which support the retina in removing toxins from the eye*. Bilberry also supports the functions of several enzymes and enhances the antioxidant activities found in the eye*. This is particularly important because of the large amounts of oxidative stress the eye undergoes while exposed to light.
Other important nutrients in supporting eye health include: Beta Carotene (which the body converts to vitamin A), zinc (which helps to regulate vitamin A levels), and Lutein (a carotenoid plentiful in spinach and kale) which are also included in isolated forms.
These essential nutrients are believed to help the body control focus*, maintain color vision*, enhance peripheral vision*, and adapt to adverse lighting conditions*.
With Bilberry, Eyebright, Beta Carotene, Lutein, and Zinc, Orbitol delivers vitamins, minerals, and herbal ingredients revered in both ancient lore and modern science as important eye nutrients. Nourish your eyes with wholesome Orbitol, and continue enjoying the rich beauty of life.
