Today, nearly everyone uses a computer either for work or leisure. Not surprisingly, the resulting eye fatigue from computer use affects all ages. Eye fatigue, or asthenopia, is an eye condition characterized by several symptoms including eye weakness, eye irritation, and poor accommodation. Accommodation is the change of the refraction power of the eye to focus at different distances. Vitamode Asta-i-Care is formulated to help fight eye fatigue symptoms with three potent antioxidants. • Astaxanthin – An Antioxidant for Eye Support Astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier and the blood-retinal barrier (beta carotene and lycopene do not), which brings antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to your eyes, brain and central nervous system. It is soluble in lipids, so it easily incorporates into cell membranes and protects them from oxidative damage. It is a very powerful natural anti-inflammatory. Astaxanthin supplementation could be effective in preventing or treating a whole host of eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), diabetic retinopathy, cystoid macular edema, central retinal arterial and venous occlusion, glaucoma, inflammatory eye diseases (i.e. retinitis, iritis, keratitis, scleritis, etc.). Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a painless eye condition that leads to the gradual loss of central vision. Diabetic retinopathy is damage to the retina caused by complications of diabetes, which can eventually lead to blindness. • Bilberry Extract For Good Night Vision Bilberry is high in a substance called flavonoids, chemically known as polyphenols. Bilberry’s flavonoids are anthocyanosides, causing the deep blue-red colour of bilberry that enhances microcirculation throughout the body. Anthocyanosides have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and strengthen the structural integrity of blood vessels throughout the body and promote healthy circulation, particularly to the small capillaries that deliver oxygen and nutrients to the eyes. Anthocyanosides also help prevent free radical damage to the delicate structures within the eye. Bilberry extract may help your night vision and adaptation to the dark, and promote visual acuity and capillary integrity. • Vitamin E – Maintenance of Good Eye Health Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, preventing the damage done by oxidation of nutrients and other chemicals in the body. Antioxidants like Vitamin E are a major part of the body’s immune system. They provide protection against diseases and conditions that are associated with aging by preventing free radicals from damaging cells of the skin, eyes, liver, heart and other bodily organs. Specifically, it seems to prevent damage to the eyes from age-related macular degeneration, reduces the risk of heart disease and helps prevent certain cancers. Vitamin E is essential to the health of your eyes. It helps to protect the eyes against the formation of cataracts and macular degeneration.
