Eye Profile

Your eyes are complex organs that need many different vitamins and nutrients to function properly. Have you ever struggled with headaches, blurry vision, caught yourself moving a paper in and out to focus, difficulty seeing at night? If so, then you should look into running our eye health profile that has been constructed to look at all the important nutrients!

The eye has a particularly high metabolic rate and thus has an added need for antioxidant protection.  Recent literature indicates that nutrients important in vision health include vitamins and minerals with antioxidant functions (e.g., vitamins C and E, lutein, zeaxanthin, β-carotene, zinc), and compounds with anti-inflammatory properties omega-3 fatty acids may ameliorate the risk for age-related eye disease.
