Eye Pro MD™ – Rebuild Your Inner Sunglasses
Dr. Rudi elaborates on ARMD (Age-Related Macular Degeneration) and the benefits Eye Pro MD™ can offer to combat the process.
Learn how the combination of carotenoids and Omega 3 penetrates the blood-eye barrier to deliver powerful nutrients to the macula and naturally rebuilds pigmentation, providing a second set of inner sunglasses which protect from prolonged exposure to harmful ultraviolet light.
Prevents Retinal Damage from Oxidative Stress
The eye exists in an oxygen and light-filled environment, making it highly susceptible to degradation from ultraviolet damage and oxidative stress. The eye naturally concentrates Astaxanthin, Lutein, and Zeaxanthin which are in Eye Pro MD’s™ formulation, to neutralize oxidative stress and shield against UV damage.
Increases Macular Pigment Density & Prevents Loss of Vision
The carotenoids found in Eye Pro MD™ are shown to concentrate within the eyes and increase macular pigment density. People with increased macular pigment density generally have reduced susceptibility to (ARMD) Age Related Macular Degeneration or more commonly, loss of vision associated with aging.* Increased macular pigment density can result from a diet high in berries and vegetables containing carotenoids and supplementation.
Protects Against Light-Induced Damage
Eye Pro MD™ works to protect the eyes from light-induced damage which may lead to vision loss. Over exposure to UV light is shown to cause damage and degradation to the retina and overall vision. The carotenoids found in Eye Pro MD™, specifically Astaxanthin, is shown to concentrate in eye tissue and protect from light-induced damage, photoreceptor cell damage, ganglion cell damage, and damage to the neurons of the inner retinal layers.*
The Leading Cause of Vision Loss & Blindness: (ARMD) Age Related Macular Degeneration
Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) is classified as vision loss associated with age related degeneration. ARMD is the leading cause of vision loss in the world. It is the culmination of prolonged exposure to bright light and degenerative oxidative forces attacking the eyes, along with the low intake of natural essential nutrients that can promote eye health.
Clinical studies have shown primary causes of ARMD are:
It is important to understand that the eyes exists in an oxygen & light-rich environment. Heightened exposure to both of these make the eyes highly susceptible to oxidative stress and light damage.
A Full Spectrum Eye Health Supplement: Supports, Optimizes and Protects the Health of the Eyes
Eye Pro MD™ provides your eyes an essential array of carotenoids to support and maintain optimal eye health. Lutein, Zeaxanthin & Zanthin® Astaxanthin have all been shown to cross the blood-retina barrier and concentrate within the retina to protect eyes and optimize vision.
Increases Macular Pigment Density & Protects from Light-Induced Damage
Wearing sunglasses when exposed to intensive sunlight is a proven method to protect the eyes.
Sunglasses From Within™: Science has shown carotenoids; specifically Zeaxanthin, Lutein, and Astaxanthin have a natural ability to concentrate within the eye’s retina – increasing macular pigment density and helping to avoid sunlight damage. The increase in macular pigment density has been clinically shown to help protect the eye from light induced damage. These carotenoids act as “internal sunglasses” protecting the retina’s visual cells from light-induced damage.
Protection from Oxidative Stress-Induced Damage
Nutritionally speaking, carotenoids often act as antioxidants, which means they neutralize oxidative stress caused by ozone and oxygen free radicals. Oxidative stress is a destructive process which is a consequence of our bodies living in an oxygen rich environment. Oxygen is life’s necessity; however, it can also damage the body, organs and tissues.
It’s important to know all antioxidants are not created equal, in fact different antioxidants are proven to protect and concentrate in the very specific areas of the body. Carotenoids are among the few antioxidants that can cross the blood-retina barrier and concentrate in the eyes and brain. In fact, when you consume these carotenoids, your body will naturally assimilate them into the eyes due to the eye’s excellent bioavailability and antioxidant capacity.
Reduction of oxidative stress in the eyes help to preserve vision by protecting and preventing damage to:
Formulated for Optimal Absorption & Effectiveness
The carotenoids in Eye Pro MD™ are formulated with Omega 3 ALA, in order to maximize their absorption and bioaccumulation of the carotenoids in the eyes. Carotenoids are fat-soluble by nature, which means they must be in the presence of fats to be dissolved, absorbed and assimilated. By formulating Eye Pro MD™ with Omega 3 ALA, we ensure the carotenoids are fully absorbed and utilized by the body, thus providing maximum overall effectiveness. In addition, ALA Omega 3 is known to reduce inflammation in the body which is also important for the eyes.
Eye Pro MD™ Ingredients & Formulation
Derived from microalgae and extracted using a solvent-free CO2 extraction process, Zanthin® Astaxanthin is a potent carotenoid shown to prevent light-induced damage, photoreceptor cell damage, ganglion cell damage, and damage to the neurons of the inner-retinal layers. Astaxanthin is not found in vegetables and is only available by supplementation or by consuming wild caught salmon.
Derived from Marigolds, this 100% vegan source of Lutein and Zeaxanthin provides your eyes a highly bioavailable source of these carotenoids. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are found in vegetables and fruit, but supplementation avoids the calories found in these sources. Both of these carotenoids are found in high concentrations in the retina by taking appropriate supplements or through a healthy diet. The concentration of these two pigments in the macula of your retina is what actually gives it its characteristic yellow color.
Derived from perilla seeds and extracted using a solvent free CO2 extraction process, this highly concentrated source of Omega 3 ALA has been shown to maximize the absorption of Astaxanthin, Lutein, and Zeaxanthin. The Omega 3 in Verilla can reduce chronic low-level inflammation throughout the body, including the eyes.
