BLACKMORES® Vision Care + Energy contains patented ingredient - Lutemax2020™, in which the lutein has been broken down into smaller free unit for easy absorption. The optimal 5:1 ratio is effective to increase macular pigment density, and in turn protects the macular region and improves visual performance.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are fat soluble carotenoids which cannot be synthesized by our body. Lutein and zeaxanthin can absorb strong light at wavelength 390-515 nm, that help to reduce the harms to our retina. The higher the macular density, the healthier our eyes.
The optimal 5:1 ratio helps to strength your eye health*:
- Contains patented ingredient - Lutemax2020™, in which the lutein has been broken down into smaller free units that are easily absorbed and used by the body1.
- Scientifically proven to increase macular pigment optical density by 3 times in 6 months2, hence improve visual performance3: Supports visual clarity under glare condition; Enhances visual sharpness and contrast sensitivity; Improves recovery and sensitivity to strong light
- Contains astaxanthin as powerful antioxidant to ease symptoms of eyestrain and fatigue
- Protects retina from blue light exposure and harms
- Powerful antioxidant to reduce free radical harms
- Aids the body to cope with environmental stress such as UV light and strong light
- Vitamin B5 supports energy levels during eye fatigue and mental focus
- Suitable for people who are focusing on visual function over the day
* The formula contains the same ratio of Lutein and Zeaxanthin used in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) and AREDS2 by the National Eye Institute
