Specially developed for your eyes SBA24®-lutein eye capsule is a food supplement that contains only researched ingredients. The product is formulated with standardized SBA24® Sea Buckthorn Oil and supplemented with lutein/zeaxanthin. It offers two-in-one health benefits; clinically tested eye hydration and support for healthy macula, contributing to maintaining normal vision.
The product is recommended for dry eyes that can be caused by work at a monitor screen, wearing contact lenses, aging, use of certain medication or low air humidity. The added lutein /zeaxanthin is an important nutrient to maintain the health of eye macula and retina.
Dry eyes are most commonly treated with moisturising eye drops. They alleviate the symptoms but do not eliminate the inflammation that maintains and intensifies the dry-eye syndrome. Research carried out by the University of Turku’s Department of Biochemistry and Food Chemistry in cooperation with the Faculty of Medicine found that the intake of sea buckthorn oil had beneficial effects on the symptoms of dry-eye syndrome and on the most important clinical indicator of dry eyes, the tear films’ osmotic concentration. (Larmo P. et al. Oral sea buckthorn oil attenuates tear film osmolarity and symptoms in individuals with dry eye, Journal of Nutrition 2010; 140(8):1462-8).
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids that the human body enriches at the macula of the retina and the lens. Their task is to protect the eye from oxidative damage. According to recent studies, lutein is also accumulated in certain areas of the brain. The human body cannot produce lutein or zeaxanthin; these must be gained from nutrition.
Besides the valuable fatty acids; Omega-3, -6, -7 and -9, the product also includes vitamin E, vitamin A (from beta-carotene) and lutein. Vitamin A contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.
