Our eyes are a priceless gift of nature, after all about 70% of the information we receive from the outside world comes to us through vision.
Never before in the history of human development has vision played such an important role as it does now in our active dynamic life in the 21 century.
Unfortunately, according to statistics seven out of ten people today have vision problems.
Eyes are not only a reflection of the soul, but a reflection of our health as well; they show the overall condition of the body (cardio-vascular diseases, diabetes, and others).
Vision has a tendency to get weaker with age, by the age of 40 many people start to experience difficulties with reading papers, or seeing small details.
There are few ways to preserve your eye health:
1. Proper diet. Less animal fat and sugar – more fruits and vegetables containing antioxidants - substances helping fight the destruction caused by free radicals.
2. Do not forget to protect your eyes from bright sun light, smoke, and dust.
3. Do not smoke.
4. Try not to overstrain your eyes, take a break from the computer, or TV screen periodically.
5. Do not forget to do exercises for the eyes.
6. Regular eye examination will help you to uncover the problem beforehand, and start treatment on time.
7. Food supplements are helpful prophylaxis measures for healthy vision.
The new Santegra® product – Vision Forte - is a multi-functional product that not only supports healthy vision, but has overall health benefits.
The main ingredients:
Beta-carotene – transforms into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is an extremely important nutrient for vision functions: it provides antioxidant effect, protects against free radicals’ destroying action, improves twilight vision, prevents cataract development, and macular degeneration - old age diseases.
The retina of the eye is very sensitive to vitamin A (which is called also retinol). It’s deficiency can provoke diseases such as keratitis and blepharitis.
Vitamin C in Vision Forte is present in five different forms: ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate, ascorbyl palmitate, acerola fruit extract, rose hips powder, which greatly increases its bioavailability. Vitamin C improves blood circulation in the eye, increases blood vessels’ elasticity, prevents retinal hemorrhaging and cataract, is an antioxidants, protects lens, slow down destructive changes.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, which protects fragile eye capillaries, and decreases vascular permeability. Clinical research shows that a combination of Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Beta-carotene intake drastically decreases the chances of retinal detachment.
Vitamin E in Vision Forte™ is in the form of d-alpfa-tocopheryl succinate – of phytogenous origins with much higher bio-activity than the synthetic forms.
Zinc helps the body digest Vitamin A, demonstrates antioxidant activity, and prevents the development of macular degeneration and reduction of twilight vision.
Zinc in Vision Forte is present in one of the most bioavailable chelate form.
Selenium has an antioxidant effect, which protects intracellular tissue structure of an eye from free radical destruction. Selenium deficit plays a major role in cataract development mechanism.
Vision Forte contains the most bioavailable form of Selenium - Selenium + GPM™.
Lutein and zeaxanthin, which can be formed from lutein, are carotenoids. Lutein is a natural colorant or pigment, found in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, plus various yellow-red fruits, calendula and corn. Egg yolks are also good sources of lutein. Lutein is very important for eye health, but the body does not manufacture lutein - the only way to get lutein is by eating foods containing lutein or consuming dietary supplements that contain lutein.
Within the eye, lutein is highly concentrated in the macular region of the retina and is dispersed in lower amounts throughout the retina and lens. This is the area responsible for vision.
Lutein provides nutritional support for our eyes. Studies suggest that Lutein and zeaxanthin in lens and retina may provide supplemental antioxidant capacity to the eyes, helping counteract free radical damage, protect photoreceptor cells from light. Lutein has been linked to promoting healthy eyes through reducing the risk of macular degeneration, cataract, and diabetic retinal angiopathy. Macular degeneration is a major reason of nonrecoverable vision loss in the USA. 20% of people 65 years or older suffer from this disease. The clinical research showed that Lutein and zeaxanthin intake can decrease the chances of developing age related macular degeneration and cataract by 30-50%.
Nowadays computers are an essential part of our lives. People who spend long hoursin front of the computer screens often complain about eye irritation, watering eyes, fatigue, and headache. The computer monitor is harmful for eyes because of the ultraviolet light radiation. To protect your eyes you need to take additional vitamins-antioxidants, and engage in easy exercises to relieve the stress from the eyes.
Rotation. Close your eyes and move them left, up, right, down. Reverse the rotation. Do 4 rotations in one direction, and 4 in the opposite direction. Try not to blink.
Up and down. Close your eyes again, look up, and down. Do 8.
Blinking. Look straight forward in front of you and blink quickly for 30 seconds, then look straight for 30 seconds, repeat 3 times.
Focal distance change. Look at the tip of your nose, then into the distance. Look at the finger or tip of the pencil, that you hold 10 inches (30 cm) from your eyes, and then into the distance. Repeat a few times. Close your eyes, blink a couple of times.
Eyelid massage. Massage eyelids softly by index or middle finger from nose to temples, then rub the palms of your hand and cover the eyes softly by your hands to block the light for 1 minute.
