- Increases blood flow to the eyes
- Prevents oxidative eye damage
- Lowers risk of macular degeneration
While OcuMax is excellent for supporting eyes already suffering with age-related antioxidant issues, the most important value of OcuMax is to prevent problems with the eyes.
Lipoic AcidA multipurpose antioxidant, lipoic acid inhibits aldose reductase, preventing the sorbitol-induced leakage of important antioxidants from eye tissue.
Ginkgo BilobaActing to increase blood flow, Ginkgo biloba increases neurological activity and protects lipid membranes from oxidation – a logical therapeutic approach for oxidative eye damage.
Carotenoids (Lutein, Lycopene)Studies show that increased intake of lutein can lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration. The lutein dosage in OcuMax is higher than is found in other eye supplements. Researchers have also found that low serum levels of lycopene have been shown to increase the risk of ARMD.
BilberryBilberry extract contains a high amount of anthocyanadins – antioxidants having a long history of success in hindering aldose reductase and improving capillary permeability.
ZeaxanthinThis is an antioxidant carotenoid which is a critical part of the macular pigment that protects the retina from degeneration. Helps maintain healthy cells and tissues in the eye. Absorbs dangerous light waves.
Recommended dose: One capsule twice a day
