Lutein and Zeaxanthin are demonstrating their efficacy in the nutritional support of the macula. Furthermore, studies exploring the effects of these carotenoids reveal their potential benefits for skin health and cognitive function.
To promote the health of mitochondria, the organelles responsible for ATP (energy) production, as well as provide neuroprotection, this formula includes (Acetyl L Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Astaxanthin, and CoQ10. Furthermore, all eight forms of vitamin E our tocopherols and four tocotrienols) are incorporated to optimize the neutralization of free radicals.
Resveratrol, a potent polyphenol predominantly found in red wine, exhibits remarkable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The “French Paradox” highlights the correlation between the French population, who consume diets high in saturated fats, and their lower rates of heart disease and mortality compared to Americans. This phenomenon is attributed, in part, to the potential protective effects of resveratrol found in the red wine they regularly consume. Resveratrol has been associated with promoting healthy aging. Numerous studies have demonstrated potential benefits of resveratrol for various health conditions. Recent research indicates that resveratrol may positively influence conditions such as macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Fortifeye was among the pioneers in utilizing resveratrol in their supplements, recognizing its potential early on within the industry.
Incorporated for its exceptional ability to neutralize free radicals and reduce inflammation, Astaxanthin provides remarkable benefits. Compared to vitamin C, Astaxanthin is an astounding 550 times more potent in quenching free radicals.
Astaxanthin naturally occurs in the ciliary body of the eye and has been associated with reduced eye strain and improved accommodation. Studies suggest that Astaxanthin also enhances choroidal circulation, promoting better blood flow to the eye. Moreover, Astaxanthin has been the subject of multiple studies showcasing its potential to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, leading to improved skin appearance. Additionally, it has been linked to enhanced muscle endurance and faster muscle recovery. Notably, Astaxanthin is responsible for the vibrant red color seen in wild Alaskan salmon.
The inclusion of Saffron in this formula is noteworthy, as it is recognized as the most expensive spice globally, boasting remarkable health benefits for both overall well-being and ocular health. Recent clinical studies have demonstrated that saffron can enhance visual acuity, with patients experiencing an improvement of two lines in cases of macular degeneration.
