Ocu Support Clinical Strength 90c is available by Protocol.
Ocu Support? has been formulated to provide comprehensive nutritional protection for the eyes. Ocu Support? contains 10 mg of available Lutein, a critical pigment of the macula, lens, and other ocular tissues. Lutein is a powerful antioxidant related to betacarotene that defends the eye from the harmful effects of sunlight. Ocu Support? has also included Green Tea Extract, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Grape Seed Extract, and other synergists in this formula to maximize its antioxidant potential. Other ingredients like beta-Carotene, B vitamins, Zinc, and Taurine are known to support overall eye health and function.
With eye health becoming a primary concern of aging, a great deal of recent research has focused on maintaining healthy eyes. It is well established that the Vitamin A family of nutrients (retinoids and carotenoids) is critical to ocular nutrition. One specific carotenoid, Lutein (and its precursor, Zeaxanthin), has been identified as playing a central role in macular health.
Lutein is an antioxidant that appears to quench or reduce harmful free radicals. Lutein also filters the high-energy, blue wavelengths of light from the visible-light spectrum by as much as 90%. It is important to carefully balance lutein with beta-carotene in a clinical eye formula, avoiding too much carotene, as they compete for absorption.
Ocu Support? is nutritionally balanced, having been formulated to provide comprehensive protection for the eyes. Studies suggest that 6-10 mg of Lutein per day is necessary to realize health benefits. One serving of Ocu Support? supplies the full 10 mg of Lutein. Ocu Support? has also included useful antioxidants like Green Tea Extract, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Bilberry, and Grape Seed Extract.
Ocu Support? contains FloraGLO? Lutein and Zeaxanthin from Marigold Flower Extracts. Numerous peer-reviewed studies link the natural antioxidant lutein with important eye-health benefits. Newer science suggests lutein promotes healthy skin. FloraGLO? Lutein is the world?s leading patented, purified lutein source.

The action of oral anticoagulant medications may be affected by Vitamin E and excessive bleeding has been associated with this combination and coagulation abnormalities. Amiloride could reduce zinc excretion from the body, leading to toxic zinc accumulation. Zinc may interfere with the absorption of penicillamine, fluoroquinolone and tetracycline so it may be advisable to take zinc at least 2 hours apart. Seek medical supervision before taking chromium if you are taking oral diabetes medications or insulin.
