ST. LOUIS, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ZeaVision, LLC introduced EyePromise® Zeaxanthin + Lutein Macular Pigment Formula to its portfolio of science-based, doctor recommended EyePromise eye vitamins.
EyePromise Zeaxanthin + Lutein Macular Pigment Formula features all-natural ingredients including 10 mg of dietary Zeaxanthin (the highest amount available in any eye vitamin brand) and 10 mg of Lutein. More than 25 million doses of EyePromise have been safely consumed, and the new formula provides an additional high-quality eye vitamin option to support macular health.
Chris Barber, ZeaVision President, explains, "Macular pigment plays an important role in protecting our photo receptors. Dense macular pigment (dietary Zeaxanthin and Lutein) protect like 'internal sunglasses' and block harmful blue light that can damage our eyes."
Several clinical studies demonstrate that dietary Zeaxanthin improves visual function such as ability to see objects against a similar background, read printed material in low light conditions, minimize glare at night, and lessen discomfort on bright sunny days.
Dr. Stuart Richer's recent Zeaxanthin and Visual Function (ZVF) Trial demonstrated several visual function improvements in early AMD patients. Patients that consumed 8 mgs of dietary Zeaxanthin for 12 months experienced improved driving skills, could read 8.5 more letters on an eye chart, blind spots were eliminated in their visual field, and improved ability to discern fine detail.
EyePromise Zeaxanthin + Lutein increases macular pigment density through premium ingredients in an all-natural product made in the USA.
Low macular pigment has also been identified as a risk factor for Age-Related Macular Degeneration. Macular pigment can be obtained from the diet, however most Americans consume less than 25 percent of the recommended 5-9 daily servings of fruits and vegetables, so supplementation is often necessary. Zeaxanthin, in particular, is difficult to obtain in the average daily diet. One must consume approximately 20 ears of corn to obtain 10 milligrams of dietary Zeaxanthin, the amount found in one EyePromise Zeaxanthin + Lutein veggie gel.
