Ivizon liquid is the total eye care for all ages. It not only helps support the development of the brain, eyes, and nerves in children but also helps support cognitive health and brain function.
Multivitamin and cataract
A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye that leads to a decrease in vision. It is the leading cause of blindness worldwide, accounting for about 42% of all blindness.
There is a protective effect for a higher intake or levels of vitamin e, riboflavin, and folate. Multivitamin supplementation for at least once per week for a year or more is found to be associated with a decreased risk of cataract in longitudinal study.
Antioxidants (vitamins & lutein & zeaxanthin) and age-related macular degeneration
Currently, one in five people over age 65 are living with age-related macular degeneration, and adults with advanced macular degeneration have a markedly reduced quality of life and need for assistance with activities of daily living.
In general, dietary modification and antioxidant nutritional supplementation show promise as approaches to the prevention of visual loss from age-related macular degeneration. Vitamins and minerals with antioxidant effect such as carotenoids, vitamin e, zinc, vitamin a, vitamin c are beneficial for delaying ageing process. However, high concentration of lutein and zeaxanthin is the most effective potential antioxidants for eyes as they inhibit lipid peroxidation ( a part of age process) in eyes.
Zinc & vitamin c and eye health
Zinc plays an important role in eye health as it protects eyes from age-related macular degeneration. Zinc in the photoreceptor membranes of retina play a role in protein-protein interactions that is essential to maintain proper cell structure and function of retina cells.
Vitamin c is important to eye health because of its role in protecting the proteins of the lens from oxidation, in serving as an antioxidant agents in the retina, and in promoting wound healing in the cornea. Vitamin c is involved in the synthesis and metabolism of collagen in the cornea. Also, it protect the lens and retina from oxidative stress, as an absorber of uv radiation in the cornea and aqueous humor.
Essential fatty acids, dha (fish oil, omega -3) and visual development in infants
The essential fatty acids are proteins that cannot made in the human body, and consequently humans rely on an adequate amount of them from the diet. Adequate level is critical in the development of the brain, retina and other neural tissues in fetus and infants.
The human retina contains an extremely high concentration of docosahexaenoic acid, dha ( one type of omega-3). It is necessary for normal function & development of retina, and high dose of dha given as a nutritional supplement in neonatal period improves visual acuity of preterm infants.
Fish oil based omega-3 is safe, well tolerated way of administration to appropriately deliver fatty acid profile in preterm infants.
