BENEFITS AND RESEARCH
Antioxidants from the carotenoid chemical family, such as beta carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, play an important role in eye health. Clinical studies have demonstrated that lutein and zeaxanthin are concentrated to the retina and lens of the eye. Supplementation with high levels of lutein can restore the lutein concentration in the retina. Further supplementation of vitamins C, E, and A (in the form of beta-carotene) along with zinc and copper aid with the healthy function of the eyes. Additional support for the eyes comes from a proprietary berry blend included in Bios Life® Vision Essentials™. This proprietary berry blend contains anthocyanidins, antioxidant compounds that support the vasculature within the eye.

USAGE
Take two capsules per day with a meal.

SAFETY AND WARNINGS
Bios Life® Vision Essentials™ is well tolerated. As with any dietary supplement, some gastrointestinal discomfort may be experienced.

HOW SUPPLIED
Available in vegetarian capsules.
