Factsheet

Nutrient supply for eye function
Better vision, less tired eyes, prevention of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Tired, dry or irritated eyes can be significantly improved thanks to an optimal combination of nutrients! Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) can be decelerated by lutein, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin and EPA/DHA omega-3 fatty acids. Decisive for the effect are quality; dosage and long-term consistent intake of these natural vital substances.
None of the sense organs are as important as the eyes. And in none of the sensory organs does age make itself felt more often and more severely. From the age of 45 onwards, visual problems, irritated, dry eyes and loss of vision become more frequent. The carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin and EPA/DHA omega-3 fatty acids help to slow down the destructive process of the most common cause of vision impairment, AMD, which leads to blindness, with increasing age. According to large-scale independent studies, the risk of blindness can be reduced by 50% depending of the initial situation thanks to these vital substances.

Why is a healthy diet not enough?
The nutritional requirements of the eyes increase massively with increasing age. On the one hand, however, the content of the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, which are crucial for eye health, is far too low in our food, and on the other hand, micronutrients are absorbed less well by the body as you get older. There is also an actual deficiency in the important omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA (from fatty fish or krill) with increasing age.

Objective of an optimal micronutrient supply for the eyes.
Lutein and zeaxanthin:

The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are found in the retina of the eye and in particularly high concentrations in the yellow spot, i.e. the structure in the middle of the retina with the highest density of photoreceptors, which achieves the highest sharpness of vision. Scientific studies suggest that an adequate supply of carotenoids reduces the risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts (clouding of the eye lens) and has a positive influence on their development.

The optimal dosage is 10mg lutein and 2mg zeaxanthin per day.

Astaxanthin (natural carotenoid extracted from algae):
Many studies have shown that natural astaxanthin can be helpful for a variety of eye problems:
•    Tired eyes and impaired vision
•    Dry eyes
•    Reduction of irritated and inflamed eyes
•    Improvement of the retinal capillary blood flow
•    Improvement of the ability of the eyes to focus
•    Improvement of depth perception
•    Protection from oxidative stress
Lutein and zeaxanthin are optimally supplemented with the antioxidant astaxanthin.

Optimal dosage of astaxanthin: at least 2 to 6 mg per day.


Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) from fish or krill oil:
The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are contained only found in fish oil or krill oil, are essential for maintaining healthy eyes. DHA is extremely important for photoreceptors of the retina. In general, these long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids have anti-inflammatory effect. EPA and DHA are not found in vegetable oils. They are of central importance for many other organ systems (e.g. cardiovascular system and brain) and many people are deficient in them.

Recommended dosage: 500 mg EPA/DHA per day.

Intake with a high-fat meal, preferably in the evening.

Cataract
katarakproblem

Cataract is a term for a clouding of the lens of the eye. In people with healthy eyes - especially young people - the lens is completely clear and relatively soft.

 

In the course of life, hardening and compression take place and the lens also becomes thicker. Mostly between the ages of 60 and 70, but occasionally much earlier, increasing clouding of the lens of the eye develops as a typical sign of old age. In some patients, however, other specific causes for the development of lens opacity may also be considered (previous eye operations, eye injuries, metabolic disorders, certain medications, congenital infantile and juvenile cataracts). The clouding of the eye lens causes the image on the retina to become blurrier. In addition to this increasingly blurred vision, cataracts are often associated with a greatly increased sensitivity to glare, which is very annoying when driving a car at dusk, for example.

After a few years, a slight clouding of the eye lens can develop into a brown-black or grey-white discolouration of the lens and, in extreme cases, the visual function is lost completely. This used to be called a "mature cataract", but nowadays surgery is usually performed much earlier to prevent such a negative development from occurring in the first place.

During cataract surgery, the hardened and cloudy natural lens is fermented (crushed) either by ultrasound or by laser, extracted and replaced by an artificial lens. Different variants are possible, such as distance vision without glasses, near vision without glasses, complete spectacle-free vision or monovision. In addition, different types of lenses are available so that a customised and optimal solution can be found in each case.

Macular degeneration

katarakproblem

Natural ageing processes produce degradation products which, over time, can no longer be completely broken down by the nourishing cells of the photoreceptors. These residues are deposited between the photoreceptors and are called drusen.

 
In many people, this leads to a poorer supply of nourishment to the photoreceptors in old age, which in turn lose their function. Macular degeneration with only drusen is a so-called dry form. If, in the further course of the disease, new blood vessels are formed which wash out the photoreceptors with fluid, it is a wet/exudative form.

At first, straight lines appear wavy, then vision in the centre of the image becomes more and more impaired until only a dark spot can be seen. As this condition is often not noticed in its early stages, it is recommended that patients at increased risk self-monitor their vision with the Amsler reticule so that rapid action can be taken in the event of even slight distortions or deterioration in findings.

Natural sources

1

  • Humans Cannot Synthesize Lutein & Zeaxanthin Green leafy vegetables are an important source of lutein and zeaxanthin
  • The minimum recommended dose of lutein is 6 to 10 mg per day
  • Current lutein intake per day:
    1,7 mg in the and 2,2 mg in Europa
  • The only other solution is supplementation
70% of adults do not consume sufficient amounts of leafy green vegetables.
