Swanson Ultra EyesAlive
Swanson Ultra EyesAlive vision formula is one of the smartest decisions you can make for the health of your eyes.
Why do I need Swanson Ultra EyesAlive?
If you’re serious about preserving your vision, don’t overlook this unique and highly advanced supplement. Research shows evidence that supports the stated eye health benefits of the active ingredients in EyesAlive, and the formula is especially advantageous for seniors and anyone who drives at night, works at a computer for hours on end, lives in a sunny climate or spends much of the day in dry air or low humidity.
How does Swanson Ultra EyesAlive compare with other vision supplements?
Swanson Ultra EyesAlive eclipses most other vision formulas on the market today. While some popular eye supplements include similar ingredients, Swanson Ultra EyesAlive generously contains optimal amounts of them, sometimes exceeding the potencies of other formulas by ten times. In fact, respected authorities in the nutritional industry have noted that for a vision formula to be truly effective, it must provide 320 mg of standardized bilberry per serving, yet many typical eye supplements fall far short of this amount. Not so with Swanson EyesAlive! That’s precisely how much this advanced vision formula contains. It also provides a generous 20 mg of lutein per serving, plus several other important carotenoids that protect the eyes from free-radical damage.
How many capsules of Swanson Ultra EyesAlive do I take per day?
A daily serving is just two capsules with water before a meal.
Are the ingredients in Swanson Ultra EyesAlive high quality?
While all Swanson supplements meet stringent requirements for purity and potency, Swanson Ultra EyesAlive includes the finest ingredients available today. Take a look at what’s inside each capsule:
- Standardized Bilberry Extract—Bilberry has a long history for vision support, most notably serving to support the night vision of British pilots during World War II. In more recent times, the pharmacological activities of standardized bilberry extracts have been the subject of scientific research, showing them to be effective for promoting the strength, resistance and overall integrity of the vascular system including the tiny capillaries that deliver nutrients to the eyes.
- Lutein—Lutein is a marvelous gift from nature that helps to strengthen a part of the eye called the macula. The macula is located in the center of the retina, and it enables us to see an object clearly. According to Dr. Robert Abel, Jr., of Delaware Ophthalmology Consultants and advisor to the Lutein Information Bureau, science indicates that lutein's function in the macula is the same as in plants: to filter out harmful, high-energy, blue wavelengths of visible light that can damage cells and tissues. Lutein also acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells by quenching free radicals.
- ZeaGold® Zeaxanthin—ZeaGold is extracted from a special strain of peppers grown in Texas by Kalsec, a leading company that controls every step of production from seed to final processing. Years ago, Kalsec officials noticed that the paprika peppers grown in a small area in West Texas had a distinct yellow-orange color that was not typical of the same peppers grown in other areas. This "off color" made these peppers less suitable for their intended purpose as a coloring agent, so they tasked their chemists with discovering the cause. It turned out that this pepper had an unusually high concentration of zeaxanthin, which is responsible for the yellow/orange color. Kalsec scientists spent years developing a hybrid of this pepper that now yields up to 10 times more zeaxanthin than the original "off color" peppers.
- ZANTHIN Astaxanthin—Astaxanthin is a carotenoid found in many marine plants, and it’s the pigment that gives wild salmon its characteristic deep pink color. As an antioxidant it may be up to 500 times more potent than vitamin E, and its ORAC score even surpasses lutein. Astaxanthin is an especially important nutrient for the eyes because it can freely cross the blood-retina barrier, neutralizing dangerous free radicals with which it comes in contact. Studies conducted with ZANTHIN brand of natural astaxanthin from Valensa International show encouraging and impressive results. It is manufactured from the micro algae Haematococcus grown in closed culture using ultra pure water, and Valensa utilizes a proprietary extraction process to yield a stabilized and standardized 10% oleoresin. ZANTHIN also contains a small amount of other supporting carotenoids including lutein, beta-carotene and canthaxanthin.
