Clinical Strength Vision Support
Clinical Strength Vision Support has been formulated to provide comprehensive nutritional protection for the eyes. Each serving has 10mg of available lutein, a critical pigment of the macula, lens, and other ocular tissues. Lutein is a powerful antioxidant related to beta-carotene that defends the eye from the ravages of sunlight. It also includes green tea extract, alpha lipoic acid and grape seed extract to maximize its antioxidant potential.*


Suggested dose: Take 3 capsules daily with food, preferably in divided doses.

Pure Omega-3
The natural fish oil concentrate used in this softgel is manufactured under strict quality control standards. It is tested to be free of potentially harmful levels of contaminants (i.e. mercury, heavy metals, PCB's, dioxins, and other contaminants). Those who experience nausea or reflux from other fish oils should find this enteric-coated, odor-controlled softgel easier to tolerate.


Suggested dose: Take 1 softgel 1 to 2 times daily with food.

Lutein & Zeaxanthin
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are free radical scavenging carotenoid pigments often found together in vegetables.* In the body, they are deposited in the macula, a specialized area of the eye that is responsible for central vision.* Acting as primary filters of highenergy blue light, Lutein and Zeaxanthin help to promote normal visual health by protecting the eye against oxidative stress.* This product is formulated to support normal recovery from bright light exposure and the maintenance of healthy contrast sensitivity.*

Suggested dose: Take 2 capsules daily.
