Regular Consumption of Antioxidants is the Best Support for Your Vision
In the US, common eye diseases affect a sizable part of the population. According to the National Eye Institute (NEI), in 2010, 2.1 million Americans had age-related macular degeneration (AMD), 2.7 million had glaucoma, 24.4 million had cataracts, and 7.7 million had diabetic retinopathy. The number of people affected by these diseases is expected to double by 2050.
The FOUR most potent Antioxidants are Astaxathin, Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Anthocyanin.
Astaxanthin and Eye Health
Antioxidants (carotenoids) have a long history of use in eye health products e.g. in the suppression of age-related macular degeneration. In addition to lutein and zeaxanthin, astaxanthin has emerged as a compound of particular interest due to its superior antioxidant activity.
Studies have demonstrated that natural astaxanthin is 6,000 times more powerful than vitamin C, 770 times more powerful than Coenzyme Q10, 100 times more powerful than vitamin E, and five times more powerful than β-carotene in trapping energy from singlet oxygen, one of the most common reactive oxygen species (ROS) found in the body.
In addition, the way astaxanthin neutralizes harmful ROS/free radicals is gentler on the body’s cells compared to other antioxidants that can be harmful because they may turn into highly reactive molecules themselves.[x] Astaxanthin has numerous additional health benefits that are supported by extensive scientific research, including over 50 human clinical trials and 1400 peer-reviewed papers.
Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Eye Health
Lutein and zeaxanthin appear to have important antioxidant functions in the body. Along with other natural antioxidants, including vitamin C, beta-carotene and vitamin E, these important pigments guard the body from damaging effects of free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can destroy cells and play a role in many diseases.
Anthocyanins and Eye Health
Black currants are almost as pretty as they are powerful, with a deep, rich, reddish or purplish-black color. Interestingly, the compound that creates that color, called anthocyanin, is also responsible for some of the black currant’s most medicinal properties.
What exactly are anthocyanins, and how can they help you? As a powerful plant with antioxidant properties, anthocyanins are found in particularly high quantities in black currant. It’s been extensively researched for its many health benefits:
- Anti-cancer.Various studies have shown that anthocyanins have potential anti-cancer effects, with one study showing that the compound suppressed tumor growth in breast cancer cells in vitro and in vivo.
- In animal studies, anthocyanins have been shown to offer health benefits to diabetics by addressing insulin resistance
Eye health.Anthocyanin-rich foods like black currant are known to be incredibly supportive of eye health.
In various studies, black currant anthocyanins were shown to increase nourishing blood flow to the eyes in patients with glaucoma, reduce intraocular pressure in the eye, and slow down visual field deterioration.
