Eye health is easy to take for granted. A multitude of factors can impact our eyes everyday. Driving, reading, computer use...even exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays my greatly affect ocular health. Non-environmental factors such as age also affect good eyesight. As we get older, our eyes may lose valuable nutrients such as riboflavin and zinc, which they need for normal eyesight. Solgar Multiplus with Vision Essentials brings you many of the high-performing nutrients you need to support eye health including zinc, Vitamin A and lutein. Lutein, a vital carotenoid, helps filter out high energy blue-light from both natural and artificial sources. Zinc converts Vitamin A into retinal. The body uses retinal to form rhodopsin, a protein in the retina that is responsible for helping eyes adapt to colour, visual images and darkness, particularly important for night vision. Multiplus with Vision Essentials includes vital antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E which may help fight the damaging effects of free radicals, along with beta-carotene which is important for normal vision.
