Eyes like other organs in our body are made up of millions of cells and all these cells need specific nutrients for proper function and communication with the brain and other organs.
You can protect your vision and eye health by supplementing with a combination of specific cellular nutrients, eating healthy food and avoiding other damaging factors.
The specific nutrients that maintain healthy structure and function of the eyes are incorporated in Dr. Rath Lensivit™ Synergy Formula. Nutrients in Lensivit support the structure of ciliary muscles and blood vessels in the eye, and protect the eyes against oxidative as well as age related changes at the cellular level.*
Key Synergy Nutrients: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Arginine, Cysteine, Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Carotenoids.
Vitamin A: Important for vision overall and especially critical for night vision.
Vitamin C: As ascorbyl palmitate, a fat-soluble form, vitamin C protects cellular membranes rich in lipids, complementing the function of vitamin E. Vitamin C is the most potent antioxidant protector in the watery parts of the eye cells that can help maintain optimum ocular pressure
Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Arginine: This nutrient combination supports the elasticity and structure of eye blood vessels and improve blood flow to the eye structures providing oxygen and nourishment. The combination also helps to strengthen ciliary muscles in the eyes which help alter the lens curvature to adjust to near or distant vision. The ciliary muscles lose their elasticity with age and need support from nutrients.
Cysteine: A sulfur-containing amino acid found in many proteins. It is a precursor for the very important cellular antioxidant glutathione (GSH).
Alpha-Lipoic Acid: An antioxidant integral to "antioxidant synergism." A lack of alpha-lipoic acid reduces the ability of other antioxidants to protect cells.
Carotenoids: Includes the protective pigments lutein and beta-carotene, as well as bioflavonoids such as anthocyanidins.
