Nutrision capsules may be a useful

nutrients that support the normal functioning of their vision.
More than any other tissue in the body,
the ocular lens and retina are continually exposed to oxygen and
intense light radiation. Both light and oxygen can create free radicals
that play havoc with lipids in the membranes of visual cells. Experts
believe that the uncontrolled generation of free radicals in the eyes
can ultimately lead to macular degeneration and cataracts. Therefore,
ocular tissues rely on a strong antioxidant defense system to protect
them from free radical damage.
Extracts of Bilberry and Ginkgo
biloba, eyebright and hawthorn berry powders, rutin, hesperidin, and
proanthocyandins are a rich source of flavonoids that provide potent
antioxidant defense in retinal visual cells and help maintain healthy
vascularization in ocular tissue. Glutathione and selenium are
essential components for healthy activity of the antioxidant enzyme
glutathione peroxidase which is abundant in healthy eyes.
peroxidase levels, however, decline with advancing age, and adequate
dietary supply of glutathione, its precursor N-acetyl-L-cysteine, and
selenium may help maintain healthy levels of this important enzyme.
Beta-carotene serves at least two purposes for the eyes. It is a
valuable precursor for vitamin A which functions in the retinal cells
as a light receptor. Beta-carotene, as well as the other carotenoids in
NutrisionÆË, is also an important antioxidant in the lens and retina.
is not only essential for normal visual signal transduction in the
retina, but also is part of many of the enzymes involved in vitamin
A-dependent light reactions in retinal cells. Moreover, zinc, as well
as copper and manganese, are essential cofactors of superoxide
dismutase, an antioxidant enzyme that removes potentially dangerous
superoxide radicals in the visual cells, the lens, and other tissues.
Taurine, the most abundant free amino acid in ocular tissue, is thought
to help stabilize neural membranes in retinal cells and modulate
