Aside from an annual vision exam, how often do you really think about the health of your eyes? For most people, they’re probably far down the list of organs and body parts considered on a regular basis. But the question you should be asking yourself is, “Are you doing enough to protect your precious vision?”
Just like you take an essential fatty acid supplement full of omegas to support your heart and overall cardiovascular health, or a multi-mineral supplement to maintain healthy bones, there are supplements available (and some solid supporting research) that are designed to protect your vision by supporting the health of your eyes. Let’s take a look at a few such supplements from Nature’s Way.
A native European herb, Eyebright Herb (Euphrasia officinalis) has been used for centuries to promote healthy eyes and sinus function. This unique herb was actually a popular feature in monastery gardens during the middle ages. Historically used for tired eyes, modern herbalists continue to utilize its natural qualities to promote healthy eyes and normal vision.
"I was having many problems with my vision, especially at night. I started taking this product about 5 yrs. ago and when I did it was like night became day. Since that happened I have never stopped taking it and I don't think I will ever do it." ~product review by Chapis
Bilberry is a natural source of powerful anthocyanins, which have been studied for the potential to support healthy eye function and protect vision. It’s a potent antioxidant that has been used support visual adaptation to light and nighttime vision, improve micro-circulation, promote healthy connective tissues and provide general antioxidant protection to the eyes. This Bilberry extract from Nature’s Way is standardized to 25% anthocyanins.
- Promotes healthy blood flow in the eyes
- Helps with night vision with targeted retina support
- Provides antioxidant protection against free radical damage
Ginkgold® Eyes is a clinical strength ginkgo biloba extract supplement formulated specifically to promote healthy eyes by strengthening capillaries and supporting vital connective tissue in the eye. This formula also includes supporting nutrients—lutein and zeaxanthin, two protective carotenoids that have been heavily studied—that help the retina with its adaptation to light and dark conditions.
Vitamin A & D
These two vitamins are great for so many things, but you may not think of them as eye vitamins. While they do promote bone and immune health, vitamin A in particular also helps maintain the integrity of normal cell membrane, as well as vision and reproduction. This combination formula from Nature’s Way really rounds out this complete eye and vision support supplement 4-pack.
"I noticed the good results when taking this Vitamin A 15000IU for my eyesight & skin health. I also learned from Swanson Research the many benefits of D3. I tried other more expensive Vitamin A before. However this combo pack delivers the two in bargain price !" ~product review by quester00
