The macula is critical to your sharp central vision required for activities such as reading, driving, and recognizing people's faces. Of the 600 carotenoids in nature, the macula selectively absorbs only lutein and zeaxanthin. Lutein acts as an antioxidant, helping protect the macula by scavenging free radicals and acting as a filter for harmful blue light. Unfortunately, as we age, lutein is depleted and must be constantly replaced. Ensuring that your daily intake of lutein is adequate to help maintain healthy vision is important. Ocuvite® Complete contains 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin.
There are three major types of omega-3 fatty acids which the body needs: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Once eaten, the body converts ALA to EPA and DHA, the two types of omega-3 fatty acids more readily used by the body. For the retinal tissue, DHA is particularly important because it is a major structural constituent of the photoreceptor outer-segment membranes and it is thought to be essential to the function of photoreceptor cells. When shopping for an omega-3 product for eye health, it is important to compare products by checking the DHA content reported on the label so that you are not paying for and consuming a large pill each day with little nutritional benefit for your eyes. Ocuvite® Complete contains a daily dose of 360mg of DHA (in 500 mg of omega-3 fish oil).
Ocuvite® Complete delivers a rich source of omega-3 fatty-acids, lutein, zeaxanthin, and essential vitamin and minerals which together help maintain healthy eyes and therefore is suitable for those individuals who are concerned about age-related changes.
