Ocu Support  - 120 Caps
 

NOW Ocu Support, formerly Eye Support, offers a full range of antioxidant nutrients which may aid in maintaining some visual functions.  Lutein, a carotenoid found in dark green leafy vegetables, is a dominant pigment in the macular region of the eye.  Lutein is a type of carotenoid, a naturally-occurring pigment in fruit and vegetables.

Lutein accumulates in the eye lens and retina, and people who eat more foods containing lutein seem to have a lower risk of macular degeneration. The UMHS cites a study in which adults with the highest dietary levels of lutein had nearly a 60 percent lower risk of macular degeneraton than adults with the lowest consumption of this substance. The UMHS notes a similar link between lutein and decreased cataract risk.

bilberry, is a fruit-bearing plant closely related to blueberries. Bilberry extract contains biologically active flavonoids which support healthy vision. Bilberry's traditional medicinal uses include treating various eye disorders, including eyestrain, night vision difficulty and nearsightedness, medically known as myopia. Several studies with humans indicate that bilberry may improve vision and prevent diabetic retinopathy.

Certain properties of bilberry and lutein account for their beneficial activity. Lutein has antioxidant properties, eliminating harmful waste products called free radicals. It may protect the retina from oxidative damage that could result from these free radicals. Bilberry contains anthocyanins that have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and protective effects on blood vessels. This anthocyanin content appears to make bilberry helpful against macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts.
