250 mg of DHA and 50 mg of EPA, 10 mg αTE* of vitamin E (as dl-α-tocopheryl acetate); 7 mg of beta – carotene; 5 mg of riboflavin, 5 mg of zinc (as zinc-oxide); 2 mg of astaxanthin, 1 mg of copper (as copper-gluconate) and 50 µg of selenium (as sodium-selenate).
αTE* – alpha tocopherol equivalents
Fish oil is a rich source of polyunsaturated Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is found in the highest concentration in the retina, suggesting it has an important functional role. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is used in DHA biosynthesis. DHA contibutes to the maintenance of eye health, helps to prevent retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration.
Beta caroten and astaxanthin are the members of carotenoid family. Beta carotene is a provitamin of vitamin A. Zinc is highly concentrated in the eye and necessary for the normal metabolism of vitamin A in the body. It is essential for dark adaptation. Vitamin A and zinc contribute to the maintenance of normal vision. Riboflavin or vitamin B2 plays a key role in the production of energy in the body. It is important for normal vision and may prevent cataract.
Astaxanthin is far more effective than other carotenoids at “”singlet oxygen quenching,”” which is a particular type of oxidation. Astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier and the blood-retinal barrier, which has huge implications for the health of eyes. Astaxanthin supplementation could be effective in preventing or treating a whole host of eye diseases, including: age-related macular degeneration (ARMD),diabetic neuropathy, cystoid macular edema, central retinal arterial and venous occlusion, glaucoma, inflammatory eye diseases (i.e., retinitis, iritis, keratitis, scleritis, etc.).
Vitamin E, selenium, zinc and copper help protect cells from oxidative stress. Riboflavin may potentiate the antioxidant effect of vitamin E.
STRONG NATURE Eye Health is a dietary supplement for healthy eyes based on fish oil, riboflavin, astaxanthin, beta carotene, vitamin E, selenium, zinc and copper.
DHA is an important part of the structure of the retina and therefore plays a role in visual development and normal eye function. Beta carotene is a provitamin of vitamin A. Zinc is necessary for the transport of vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A, riboflavin and zinc contribute to the maintenance of normal vision.
Vitamin E, selenium, zinc and copper contribute to protection of cells from oxidative stress.
