Lutein, a yellow pigment found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and collard greens, can reverse some of the symptoms of age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of visual disability. Lutein has previously been shown in several studies, (As well as one major trial to be announced later this month) to delay the onset of macular degeneration.
Macular degeneration, which involves genetic and nutritional components, occurs in the area of the eye that provides the central field of vision, interfering with a person’s ability to see details and eventually leading to complete blindness.
Bilberry also helps deliver In-Vision’s other two ingredients, zeaxanthin and lutein, to the eye. Powerful antioxidants in their own right, lutein and zeaxanthin scavenge harmful free radicals and act as optical filters by absorbing blue and near ultraviolet radiation, which can cause free radical (photo toxic) damage.
