EyePromise DVS NSF
Ongoing scientific research suggests that there are specific nutrients that have been shown to affect contributing factors relating to blood vessel damage in the eye, including:

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid – potent mitochondrial antioxidant that targets harmful proteins
  • Grapeseed Extract & Resveratrol – reduces oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction and apoptosis
  • CoQ10 – improves endothelial cell function and may help with lipid peroxidation
  • Vitamin D – low serum Vitamin D is associated with a host of physiologic challenges
  • Vitamins C & E – along with tocotrienols help reduce oxidative stress and improve endothelial function
  • Green Tea Leaf – aids in the reduction of vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF)
  • Benfotiamine – helps support the biochemical pathways associated with vascular health
  • Pycnogenol® – helps improve retinal capillary integrity and retinal blood flow
  • Curcumin – demonstrates the ability to improve the status of angiogenic signaling proteins
  • Fish Oil (DHA & EPA) – improves cell membrane integrity and vascular permeability
  • Zeaxanthin – reduces oxidative stress and helps protect visual cells (cone protection)
  • Lutein – reduces oxidative stress and helps protect visual cells (rod protection)
  • Zinc – may help with lipid peroxidation
