Ultra Preventive Vision is a comprehensive multivitamin/ mineral formula specially designed to support ocular health with specific phytonutrients and carotenoids. These nutrients help to contribute to a healthy macula, retina, and visual performance for all ages affected by excess blue-light exposure and free radical damage.
Included in this formula is a lutein to zeaxanthin ratio of 3:1, which has been shown in research to support the macula and healthy vision. Additionally, nutrients such as vitamin C, alpha- lipoic acid, green tea, and resveratrol provide antioxidant activity to the eyes. Methylated B vitamins in the form of 5-MTHF, methylcobalamin, P-5-P and benfotiamine allow for maximum bioavailability of these nutrients.

Functions
More than any other tissue in the body, the ocular lens and retina are continually exposed to free radical damage and intense light radiation. Both light and oxygen can create free radicals that disturb membrane lipids of visual cells. Experts believe that the uncontrolled generation of free radicals in the eyes can ultimately lead to degeneration of the macula with vision loss or cataracts. Therefore, ocular tissue relies on a strong antioxidant defense system to protect them from free radical damage. Ultra Preventive® Vision supplies powerful antioxidants in addition to essential basic vitamins and minerals for overall healthy aging.
Extracts of bilberry, grape seed, resveratrol, and green tea are rich sources of flavonoids that provide potent antioxidant defense in retinal visual cells and help maintain eyesight in conditions such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
Carotenoids in Ultra Preventive Vision, such as lutein and zeaxanthin, are also important antioxidants in the macula of the eye as evidenced by recent studies performed by the NIH National Eye Institute. Research has shown that these important carotenoids are the predominant pigments found in the macula and occur naturally in serum at a ratio of 3:1 lutein to zeaxanthin.
Vitamin A functions in the retinal cells as a component of rhodopsin, a light-sensitive pigment that supports night vision. Cofactor minerals zinc and magnesium are found in high concentrations in the ocular tissue. Zinc helps in connective tissue formation and is an essential cofactor of superoxide dismutase (SOD), an antioxidant enzyme that removes potentially dangerous superoxide radicals in the visual cells, the lens, and other tissues.
Taurineis themostabundantfreeaminoacidinoculartissueand vitamin D is a factor in the maintenance of good health.

Ultra Preventive Vision contains methylated B vitamins for increased bioavailability to the body, including benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of thiamine. Metafolin®, a patented, natural form of (6S) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) is the naturally occurring, predominant form of folate commonly found in cells and is essential for retinal health and methylation support. Unlike synthetic folic acid, L-methylfolate can be used directly by the body, without the need for an additional conversion via the enzyme (5,10 methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR)). In certain populations, the body’s ability to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF by use of this enzyme may be compromised due to genetic differences. Metafolin® contains only the S isomer of 5-MTHF and has been shown to be the only form of folate to be able to cross the blood-brain barrier.

Indications
Ultra Preventive Vision is indicated for individuals that desire the essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for maintaining healthyvisionandocularfunction.

Ultra Preventive Vision helps to reduce the risk of developing cataracts and improves macular pigment optical density.
