In the US, eye health is a major concern for those over 60 years of age. The eye is the most susceptible organ to oxidative damage caused by light, toxins (smoke), atmospheric oxygen and abrasion. As ultraviolet and blue light pass through the retina to the photoreceptors (rods and cones) and the pigmented epithelial (PE) cells, reactive oxygen species (free radicals) are generated. If there are insufficient antioxidants available to neutralize free radicals, the eye undergoes excessive oxidative damage.
4Sight was formulated with a specific blend of botanicals, nutrients, antioxidants and minerals, shown in research to support healthy eye function. The formula provides antioxidant support as well as key nutrients to care for and maintain the long-term health of the eyes.
Suggested Use: 2 capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a potent, versatile antioxidant that is both water- and fat-soluble. ALA has been shown to inhibit aldose reductase, which prevents sorbitol-induced leakage of important antioxidants from eye tissues and recharges ALA vitamin C, E and glutathione.
Ginkgo biloba has been shown to provide key antioxidant support for eyes.
Carotenoids: Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Lycopene
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoid pigments whose role in eye health is well-established from epidemiological, clinical and interventional studies.
A vital coenzyme for eye tissue, zinc is a necessary component in antioxidant enzymes including superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and catalase.
Bilberry extract contains a high amount of the antioxidants known as anthocyanidins, similar to those found in grape seeds. Bilberry has a long history of use in eye health.
A flavonoid found in a variety of herbs, vegetables and fruits, quercetin provides antioxidant support for eyes.
Taurine concentration is high in the retina and is required for retinal tissue growth.
