How many take care of their eyes?
We all know good diet, proper rest and exercise along with a good mix of multivitamin supplements have been the mantra for healthy living. But how often do we ask: Are we taking care of our eyes in today's world of digital and visual overload?
National Eye Institute (NEI) estimates over the next 30 years, the number of Americans concerned with their eye health will double due to aging baby boomers.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are vital eye nutrients that the body deposits in the macula of the eye to create a protective layer, which can help filter harmful blue light from our eyes. Our bodies cannot synthesize these nutrients naturally. So, the only way to get these nutrients is through diet and/or supplementation.4
Dietary sources that are rich in Lutein and Zeaxanthin include:
Imagine eating 1 cup of kale, 3 cups of spinach or 7 cups of broccoli.
Or, if that’s not practical, take 1 daily capsule of Ocucel® Complex or 2 tablets of Ocucel® Daily Multivitamin.
Our specially formulated products provide nutritional support for those at risk for age-related eye disease. Research now shows that Lutein in conjunction with other antioxidants helps filter out visible blue light, a major cause of light damage to the eyes. Research suggests 10 mg of lutein per day from dark green leafy vegetables and other sources is necessary to realize the health benefits of lutein. Most Americans don’t consume enough foods rich in lutein in a normal day to promote complete eye health. With Ocucel®, you can get the nutrients to promote eye health.*
