The eyes are our most important sensory organ: we absorb more than 80 % of the information with them. A good vision promotes the ability to work and influences the individual lifestyle. Intensive monitor-based work, an unbalanced diet, stress, and the stronger UV radiation strain the eyes including the point of sharpest vision, the macula.
Vital substances for the eyes
For good vision it is important to guarantee a constant supply of nutrients for the eyes. Relevant micro-nutrients support your vision until old age. These substances help to maintain the normal vision:
Vitamin A – supports night vision and the adaption to darkness and is important for moisturisation and tear fluid.
Vitamin B2 – is important for the optical structure (transparency) of the eye lens.
Zinc – contributes to the availibilty of vitamin A for the eyes and the necessary transformation of vitamin A to rhodopsin. Zinc is related to night vision and the eyes' adaption to darkness.
DHA is the primary structural fatty acid of the retina and due to its properties it influences the photoreceptors in the eye in multiple ways.
