Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Zinc and Blueberry extract: the protective shields of your eyesight.
How was your eyesight 20 years ago? What is it like today? So imagine what it will be in five years, if you don’t act. Sight is an important meaning for your quality of life and well-being. Take good care of it now! Seeing better is living better!
To protect the eyes from macular degeneration, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Zinc and blueberry extracts are essential. But since modern food contains few of them, our experts have combined them into a single new and surprisingly effective food supplement: Vista plus.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin: the shock duo for the health of your eyes:
These pigments filter harmful ultraviolet rays as well as blue light from TV screens or smartphones. Bio-Gestion offers you a new complement resulting from innovative research in the field of vision protection and maintenance.
The Vista Plus combines the 2 main shields, which protect the health of your eyes. These are carotenoid pigments found in nature. Egg yolk, for example, owes its colour to lutein and maize owes its colour to zeaxanthin.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are two natural nutrients that are very important to the health of your eyes. Both are present in high concentrations in the macula, the part of the retina responsible for your detailed central vision (it allows you to decipher a drug package insert or read the journal).
The lutein + zeaxanthin complex contributes to:
- Neutralize free radicals that accumulate in the eye and can damage the retina (antioxidant property).
- Filter the blue light that attacks the photoreceptors in the eye (indirect antioxidant effect).
According to the researchers, these two actions contribute to preventing retinal degeneration. This reduces the risk of cataracts (the leading cause of vision decline in people aged 60 to 74) and advanced macular degeneration.
The results of 2 placebo-controlled clinical trials (107 subjects in total) indicate that a supplement of lutein, taken for at least 1 year, can slow the progression of macular degeneration. (Richer S, Stiles W, et al., Optometry. 2004 Apr;75(4):216-30. Olmedilla B, Granado F, et al., pilot study. Nutrition. 2003 Jan;19(1):21-4.)
Blueberries: an essential asset for your eyes
These berries contain large quantities of anthocyanins, considered as protectors of visual function. Vista Plus would not be as effective as it could be without its blueberry extract.
A study published in the journal Advances in Gerontology suggests that long-term supplementation of blueberry extract is effective in preventing macular degeneration and cataracts. “(Fursova AZh, Gesarevich OG, Gonchar AM, Trofimova NA, Kolosova NG.Adv Gerontol. 2005;16:76-9).
Blueberry extract is beneficial for the eyesight because it contributes to:
- Improve night vision
- protect against the dangers of prolonged exposure to computer or television screens,
- promote eye microcirculation
- Reduce visual fatigue
- Prevent macular degeneration and cataracts.
Many doctors recommend blueberry extract to their patients to improve their vision.
It is also said that during the Second World War, British Royal Air Force pilots before their night missions ate blueberries to improve their night vision.
Finally, the synergy is complete thanks to Zinc
Zinc is an essential mineral for the functioning of the eye. Thanks to it, vitamin A is transported from the liver to the retina to produce melanin, a protective pigment for the eyes. Zinc is present in good concentration in the eye, especially in the retina and choroid, the tissue under the retina.
Zinc protects the eyes against macular degeneration and night blindness.
In a controlled study, elderly patients with early macular degeneration received zinc supplements. Macular deterioration of participants slowed and they maintained their visual sharpness better than those who received a placebo.
By combining lutein + zeaxanthin + blueberries + zinc, it is the quintessence of food for the health of your eyesight that is proposed to you. Enjoy it!
