Increases insulin receptor expression*
This formula contains a patented form of saffron called "Saffron EX 5C" which is kosher, non-GMO and DNA-tested to assure purity! So you will be getting what you pay for! (Perhaps you don't realize this, but saffron is frequently 'cut' with cheaper powders and sold as if they were true saffron!)
The unique extraction process guarantees you get the highest levels of the constituents in saffron: Safranal, crocins, picrocrocins and safromotivines. This form of saffron "Saffron EX 5C" has been clinically researched age-related concerns within the macula structure of the eye.* Saffron is also thought to have a beneficial impact on bone health due to its ability to reduce cortisol and slightly raise estrogen.*
Eye hydration and nighttime light adaptation*
Clinical trials using extracts of black currants have determined that these gorgeous berries are rich in certain compounds that improve eye function in various ways.* For example, the eyes' ability to adapt to darkness, and enhancing blood flow to the eyes.*
Research suggests that black currant extract delays visual field deterioration, especially in elderly individuals.* Interestingly, black currant extracts have a positive impact on moisture retention in the eye due to naturally-occurring vitamin C and other phytonutrients.*
Maintain a clear cornea and support night vision*
Vitamin A is a critical fat-soluble vitamin that is a necessary component of rhodopsin, a protein in your eyes that enables you to see in the dark.* So, a vitamin A deficiency can negatively impact your night vision.* This could create safety issues if you drive at night or get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.
Vitamin A is required to help you maintain cornea health as you get older.*
Increase collagen formation for eye integrity*
Vitamin C is required for the formation of collagen, and collagen is a protein that provides structure to your eyes (and skin).* There have been some important recent studies that suggest vitamin C (which you do NOT make in the human body) can protect the structure of the eyes.* This can in turn can offer protection for the various structures off the eye.* The human cornea is about 0.5 mm thick at the center part, and the structure is held together by collagen-rich connective tissue. Vitamin C improves collagen synthesis.*
Nourish the macula and provide natural pigment*
The predominant carotenoids of the macular pigment in your eyes are two well-known antioxidants: Lutein and zeaxanthin.
When an individual takes beta carotene, they have to wait for it to be turned into zeaxanthin in the body. Lycopene turns into lutein. That’s why Vision Script includes the 2 nutrients as their biologically active forms. They are direct pigment-forming nutrients themselves, no conversion needed.* There is no pre-cursor beta carotene which is what other formulas use. These types of compounds are well known to support eye function and eye health.*
Protect the retina and reduce lipofuscin*
Research has shown that vitamin E, which is naturally found in nuts and seeds, can help fortify the eye, specifically the fat-loving portion of the cells and the retina.* The free radical harm to the eye is what can cause the breakdown of the retina. Termed retinal degeneration, it has been shown that vitamin E helps offset the harm done by these unstable molecules that break down healthy eye tissue.*
Studies provide clinical evidence that vitamin E also reduces accumulation of a harmful compound called "lipofuscin,” which can adversely impact eye health.*
I’m pleased with Vision Script. Easy to use; great ingredients that I’ve come to expect from this company.
I have taken a supplement for my eyes for decades. I'm sure this is benificial.
