The shelf life of EyePromise is two years from date of manufacture.
In more than 40-million consumed doses, there have been no serious adverse reactions reported with EyePromise. The most frequently reported adverse event is nausea. In the strong majority of reported instances of nausea, the supplement was taken on an empty stomach. To date there have been no consistent or serious adverse events reported following EyePromise consumption. Report any adverse events to ZeaVision (1-866-833-2800), so they can be properly catalogued and followed-up.
EyePromise is one of the most affordable nutraceuticals in the eye supplement category with a per-serving cost of .51 per day. This is particularly compelling when one compares the number and quality of ingredients provided in EyePromise Restore. EyePromise Restore also has the highest available level of natural dietary Zeaxanthin, a very expensive and important ingredient for eye health.
ZeaVision sells EyePromise in the professional channel where EyeCare Professionals can properly explain the benefits of specific supplement ingredients and proper quantity to maintain healthy vision. Retail stores typically sell a confusing array of eye supplements and it’s often very difficult to identify important differences between products.
Both carotenoids provided in EyePromise are derived from natural sources. The Lutein utilized in EyePromise is derived from marigolds and the Zeaxanthin is derived from red peppers.
Zeaxanthin and lutein are molecularly similar however they each orient themselves differently in the cell with Zeaxanthin having two ends reactive for antioxidant activity, and lutein only one. The deposition of these antioxidants in the eye varies as Zeaxanthin is in higher concentration in the cone rich center of the macula and lutein is in higher concentration in the peripheral area of the macula. The eye preferentially deposits Zeaxanthin in the fovea (the very center of the macula containing the highest density of vision cells in the retina), suggesting a distinct and different role for each.
The decision to incorporate a 2:1 Zeaxanthin to lutein ratio in EyePromise is based on the actual ratio in the center of the macula. Lutein is more readily available than Zeaxanthin, in the diet. The eye still chooses to place a 2:1 ratio of Zeaxanthin to lutein in the center of the macula, the area with the highest concentration of visual cells.
The FDA does not approve vitamins and supplements. Three Zeaxanthin safety studies have been conducted and submitted to the FDA and safety approval obtained. ZeaVision takes safety and quality very seriously.
The macula contains both lutein and Zeaxanthin and the eye preferentially accumulates Zeaxanthin in the center of the macula where the highest density of visual cells reside. Supplementing with lutein will increase macular pigment; however, the most crucial area of the macula may have deficient protection without Zeaxanthin and recent science demonstrates unique and beneficial differences between the two carotenoids.
To maintain your macular pigment level after you reach the desired level, you must continue to take EyePromise. Once you achieve the target level, your doctor may lower your prescription to one softgel per day if you were taking two softgels. If you stop taking EyePromise your macular pigment level will return to your baseline level over time. Additionally, you should make the lifestyle changes your doctor recommends to receive the maximum benefit of EyePromise.
