Eye Alive provides a broad spectrum of nutrients specifically selected to support the function of the eyes: •Mixed carotenoids along with preformed vitamin A naturally sourced from palm tree fruit •Increased levels of riboflavin and methylcobalamin, as they are crucial for healthy homocysteine metabolism •Therapeutic doses of lutein and zeaxanthin esters from natural plant sources •Bilberry extract, standardized to 36% anthocyanins •Taurine is included for its role in supporting retinal health Made with non-GMO ingredients.

Exposure to toxins, ultraviolet light from the sun, and free radicals can all do major damage to the eye. The simple act of letting light pass through the eye and hitting the retina increases the exposure of eye tissue to a range of different lightgenerated free radicals. For this reason, it makes sense to optimize intake of eye-nourishing nutrients, especially as we age.

Eye Alive is a comprehensive formulation containing a vast array of eye-supportive nutrients, including lutein, zeaxanthin, bilberry, Ginkgo biloba, curcumin, green tea, taurine, lipoic acid, vitamin A, and mixed carotenoids including beta carotene. This product does not contain synthetic carotenoids, as research shows that natural carotenoids offer a superior spectrum of benefits.

Lutein
Out of all the natural carotenoids in Eye Alive, lutein is the most important for the protection of the retina. Lutein, a yellow carotenoid found in foods such as corn, egg yolks, kale, spinach and broccoli, protects the retina from the free radical damage it undergoes constantly. The lutein used in Eye Alive is naturally derived from marigolds. Lutein-rich foods and supplements containing lutein can increase macular pigment density, which research
shows is associated with a lower risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Lutein supplementation has been shown to improve visual and retinal function in AMD patients and in healthy subjects. Some studies suggest 6 mg/day as a beneficial dose of lutein, but average dietary intake in the U.S. is only 1-2 mg/day. Two capsules of Eye Alive provide 10 mg of lutein in the esterified form, which shows superior absorption.

In the Lutein Antioxidant Supplementation Trial (LAST), 90 patients with the dry form of AMD were evaluated for changes in visual functions while taking a proprietary supplement mixture. Researchers recorded actual improvement in key visual functions among patients with AMD. Patients taking the experimental antioxidant mix experienced significant improvements in glare recovery, contrast sensitivity, and visual acuity when compared to placebo. Additionally, patients experienced a 50% increase in macular pigment density when compared to those on the placebo treatment.

The study also demonstrated the reversing effects of 10 mg of lutein supplementation along with vitamin C, vitamin E, and other antioxidants on the symptoms and pathology of dry AMD. Note that Eye Alive contains the same formulation as the experimental mixture used in LAST, along with additional micronutrients and antioxidants that support eye health.

Bilberry
The bilberry used in Eye Alive is a standardized extract containing 36% anthocyanidins. According to research, anthocyanosides, which have antioxidant activity, also have a stabilizing effect on collagen, prevent capillary fragility, and improve microcirculation. Clinical evidence shows that bilberry helps with glaucoma, cataracts, retinopathy, diabetes mellitus, and arthritis.2 In addition, a significant visual acuity recovery has been shown in school children with pseudomyopia, suggesting that long-term intake of bilberry extract may be useful in preventing an advancement to axial myopia and slowing the progression of various eye disorders including myopia, impaired night vision, and diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy. The therapeutic effects of bilberry are
associated with the antioxidant activity of its anthocyanins, their ability to increase blood supply to the retina, and to inhibit retinic phosphodiesterases, the enzymes responsible for the decay of visual impulses.

Recommended Use
As a dietary supplement, take two capsules per day with meals, or as directed by a health care practitioner.
