20 Years of Full-Spectrum Eye Nourishment

With 20 mg of lutein in Vision Essentials, you can be assured the most important areas of your eye health are getting the support they need for…

  • Macular health and visual performance
  • Light adaptation under low-light conditions
  • Protection from oxidative stress
  • Protection from harmful wavelengths of light from laptops, TVs, and more

For over two decades Vision Essentials® has been serving the vision health needs of thousands of folks just like you. In fact, in that time it has sold over four million bottles. The reason is simple: taking Vision Essentials every day is one of the best things you can do for your eye health, with an array of powerful nutrients, including 20 mg of lutein.

Good vision health depends on a wide spectrum of supportive nutrients

Vision Essentials includes 20 mg of lutein, a unique Berry Vision Complex, and Setria® Glutathione. A reduced glutathione, known as the body's "master antioxidant", glutathione is produced by the cells in your body. Setria supports healthy glutathione levels and the optic nerve, lens, and aqueous fluid within the eye.

Lutein is a must-have for your eyes

Lutein is critically important for your eyes. This essential carotenoid has been researched in numerous clinical studies and shown to support the health of the macula, support vision under low-light conditions, and protect your eyes against oxidative stress caused by harmful blue light.

Help maintain the health of your lens with zeaxanthin

Zeaxanthin is another key carotenoid that works along with lutein to support the health of your eyes. Zeaxanthin helps sustain the health of your lenses, photoreceptors, and retinal lining. Not unlike lutein, zeaxanthin concentrations in the macula area of the retina tend to decline as you age. But because your body can’t generate zeaxanthin on its own, it’s vital to supplement with optimal amounts. Vision Essentials gives you 2 mg of this key nutrient.

Improved contrast and glare sensitivity in high- and low-light conditions

In a one-year randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, participants received 20 mg of lutein—the amount in Vision Essentials—or a placebo once daily. The group receiving lutein experienced a substantial increase in macular pigment optical density (MPOD) within twelve months, as well as improvements in contrast and glare sensitivity, especially in high- and low-light conditions. Having a higher MPOD—often labeled as your “internal sunglasses”—is a key part of eye health as macular pigment plays an important role in protecting the macula from harmful blue light and maintaining crisp, healthy vision.1

Super antioxidant firepower with 300 mg Berry Vision Complex

With its unique combination of black currant, bilberry, goji, and maqui berries, Vision Essentials delivers a potent supply of antioxidant firepower and eye health support.

Bilberry is rich in anthocyanosides, supporting the microcirculation and intricate photoreceptor cells and protecting your eyes from free radicals. Pre-clinical, in vitro studies suggest that bilberry extract protects retinal photoreceptor cells from harmful blue light.2,3

And black currant, whose water-soluble antioxidant properties lie in the anthocyanins, is important for eye health because the anthocyanins are soluble, and can be incorporated into, the aqueous humor—the watery substance that fills the space between the lens and the cornea.

The maqui berry is a superfruit indigenous to the rainforests of Chile and is known for its brilliant purple color, attributed to its anthocyanin content. And the nutrient-dense goji berry brings naturally occurring carotenoids and a whole a host of concentrated antioxidant benefits.

Plus, pre-formed glutathione, taurine, N-acetyl L-cysteine, vitamin C, and 7 additional vision supportive nutrients

Combined, these nutrients—many of which are skimped on or left out of other formulas—reduce oxidative stress caused by blue light. Zinc, helps support the retina, where it's more concentrated than in any other organ, and is especially effective when combined with vitamin C. I also added copper to balance the zinc, and for added antioxidant protection.
