Benefits at a Glance

  • Contains lutein, two forms of zeaxanthin, and phospholipid compounds

  • Enhanced with astaxanthin to help fight eye fatigue

  • Promotes absorption and concentration of lutein nutrient

  • Provides an optimal dose of saffron to support healthy vision

The nutrients our eyes need are often hard to come by — and our bodies sometimes lose the ability to synthesize them as we age. For instance: carotenoid nutrients such as lutein and specific forms of zeaxanthin make up your macular pigment. This part of your retina protects underlying photoreceptor cells from the harmful effects of excess blue and ultraviolet light.1-5

Astaxanthin: fight eye fatigue

Japanese scientists have clinically studied astaxanthin. They’ve demonstrated that 6 mg of astaxanthin supplementation daily helped promote visual sharpness and eye health.


Phospholipids for lutein: optimal absorption

Getting these eye-healthy nutrients to where you need them most is a huge part of supporting your vision health. Phospholipids have been shown to support lutein24-29 absorption.
