It’s not news to anyone that usage of digital devices is more prevalent than ever. Our exposure to harmful, high-energy blue light from screens increased significantly during the global pandemic. Because of this, it is crucial that we focus more on our eye health. That’s why at Barlean’s we highly recommend our Eye Remedy Seriously Delicious® emulsion to maintain vision health for anyone that uses electronics daily—so, everyone.*
Out of all the Seriously Delicious® products, Eye Remedy is unique because of the additional ingredients it contains to support eye health. We start with Fresh Catch® fish oil so you also get your daily serving of Omega-3s (1,250 mg per serving to be exact) all in one product. Lutemax 2020 is one of the notable additions. According to OmniActive the makers of Lutemax 2020, it is a “naturally derived marigold extract that delivers a unique combination of lutein and zeaxanthin isomers” (OmniActive). Lutein and zeaxanthin help with cognitive health and mental performance, mood, eye and vision health, and sleep health.
Seeing Clearly: Lutein and Zeaxanthin for Eye Health
Let’s look deeper into these ingredients. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are “important antioxidants, which protect your cells from damage. Most notably, they support the clearance of free radicals in your eyes” (Healthline). Additionally, these two antioxidants are “the only dietary carotenoids that accumulate in the retina, particularly the macula region, which is located in the back of your eye” (Healthline).
Three more ingredients we include in our eye supplement are astaxanthin, blueberry extract, and grape seed extract. Astaxanthin is “a carotenoid pigment that occurs in trout, microalgae, yeast, and shrimp, among other sea creatures. It’s most commonly found in Pacific salmon and is what gives the fish its pinkish color” (Healthline). Similarly to lutein and zeaxanthin, astaxanthin is an antioxidant that is linked to many eye health benefits. Blueberries have all sorts of health benefits including improvement with cognitive function, mood, diabetes, and heart health (Very Well Health). Lastly, grape seed extract is made from the seeds of wine grapes. It is “promoted as a dietary supplement for various conditions, including venous insufficiency (when veins have problems sending blood from the legs back to the heart), promoting wound healing and reducing inflammation (National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health).
