Maintaining normal eye function is important for our general health and well-being.
The function of the cells building our eyes and those involved in the vision process require a constant supply of vitamins and other micronutrients. Science shows that various micronutrients and natural plant components are of utmost importance for supporting the vision process. Micronutrients are required for the cells building our eyes; for the optic nerve that carries the signals from the eye cells to the brain; for the (ciliary) muscle cells that stretch and relax to control the focus of the lens; and for the blood vessels responsible for supplying the eyes with oxygen and nutrients.
Specific micronutrients are also important for protecting the eye cells against oxidative stress originating from multiple sources such as air pollution, smoking or blue light emitted from digital screens.
The ingredients in LensivitTM have been combined in accordance with the scientific principles to support their respective functions in various aspects of eye health.
Vitamin A and carotenoids are important for overall vision and especially for night vision.
Lutein is believed to function as a filter of high energy blue light, and an antioxidant that quenches and scavenges photo induced reactive oxygen species.
Cysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid which makes up glutathione a powerful antioxidant.
Vitamins C and E and arginine support the elasticity and structure of eye blood vessels which improves blood flow to the eye providing oxygen and nutrients.
Alpha lipoic acid is both a water- and fat-soluble antioxidant and therefore is easily transported across cell membranes, enabling it to confer free radical protection both inside and outside cell structures.
Vitamins C and E assist in protecting cells against oxidative stress. In addition, vitamin C participates in regeneration of vitamin E.
