The eye allows us to experience a multitude of impressions and images of our world. Every second, large amounts of information enter this sensory organ and are transferred to our brain.
Some of the most important elements of this complex visual system are the 100 million or more photoreceptors in the retina. The eye can be strained by a wide variety of influences, such as dry air, UV radiation, smog or hours spent in front of a computer, and of course, age is no respecter of the eye.
We can support our eyes’ well-being by leading a healthy lifestyle and providing them with enough nutrients.
“Generation 40+ Eye” capsules contain a combination of vitamins, minerals and other vital substances, such as lutein and zeaxanthin – both of which are carotenoids derived from plants – which the body enriches in the retina, amongst other places. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and zinc support the maintenance of normal vision.
Both nutrients also help to protect our cells from oxidative stress, as do the vitamins C and E contained within them.
