Uses For EyeProtect Basics Eye Health: The importance of nutrients for eye health has been particularly evident since the publication of a long-term multicenter, prospective study involving more than 5,000 individuals ages 55-80. Results revealed that high amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, copper, lutein and zeaxanthin support the health of the retina and macula. EyeProtect Basics contains clinically researched levels of these nutrients in optimally bioavailable forms. The formula is offered in versions with and without zinc. Recent research has revealed that individuals with 1 or 2 complement factor H (CFH) risk alleles may not benefit from supplemental zinc. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the two major carotenoids stored in the macula, the central part of the retina. They support retinal health by promoting the integrity and density of the macular pigment, acting as antioxidants and light filters to protect the ocular tissue. Numerous double-blind, placebo-controlled trials indicate that lutein and zeaxanthin support the health of the optical lens as well as the retina. Research has revealed that the combination also offers support for photoreceptor health and color vision.
