There are so many environmental factors in our daily lives which can affect our eyes including pollution, exposure to the sun or staring at a computer screen all day. All of these factors put a strain on our eyes which can lead to deteriorating effects, therefore the use of supplementation, regular eye checkups or eating certain foods can help to reduce these effects.
Since majority of Australians do not consume the recommended servings of fruits and veggies, supplementation is important to meet the nutrition gap.
That’s where USANA’s Visionex™ comes in! With guaranteed levels of lutein and zeaxanthin as well as vitamin C, zinc and bilberry extract Visionex is essential for keeping your eyes fit and focused.
Visionex works to help maintain optimal eye function by providing nutrients, specifically antioxidants to counter free-radical damage.
So what makes Visionex different?
Visionex is a unique and comprehensive formulation of ingredients which maintain eye health and aid acute vision. These include:
Lutein & Zeaxanthin – are important antioxidant components of the macula of the eye. Lutein is believed to function in two ways: first as a filter of high-energy blue light and second as an antioxidant that quenches light-induced free radicals and reactive oxygen species. Zeaxanthin is another carotenoid and an even more powerful antioxidant against free radicals.
Bilberry Extract – a fruit which is rich in antioxidants and helps to maintain healthy capillaries in the eye
Vitamin C – provides additional antioxidant protection especially to the lens of the eye
Zinc – supports and promotes good visual acuity
Visionex is designed to support long-term eye health, especially when combined preventative measures against exposure to harmful environmental factors. It is also suitable for vegetarians.
Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet. Use only as directed. Always read the label.
