What's in our Eye Vitamins
Based on the most extensive global clinical study of eye disease (AREDS2), our Eye Vitamins were developed by one of the world’s leading ophthalmology professors at UCL & Moorfields Eye Hospital. Based on proven science and clinical studies.
Our planet-friendly Eye Vitamins contain everything our experts – and research – say your eyes need; nothing they don’t.
“Targeted supplements are essential as we approach middle age, especially where hormonal changes are predominant, mostly in women in the pre-and perimenopause stages and men as androgen (testosterone) levels start to decline.”
“We've chosen the best combination of vitamins and nutrients, based on the latest research, to help keep your eyes healthy.”
“Targeted supplements (together with a balanced diet) are essential as we approach middle age, especially where hormonal changes are predominant, mostly in women in the pre-and perimenopause stages and men as androgen (testosterone) levels start to decline. A healthy balanced diet is crucial, but it can be difficult to include the essential pigments and minerals that the eye needs to function optimally. Difficulty focusing, blurred vision, and dry or uncomfortable eyes are typical.”
“We've reviewed the results of large clinical trials - including the largest global clinical study on eye health (AREDS2). Pigments or carotenoids like Lutein and Zeaxanthin are present in dark green leafy vegetables.
But, it can be challenging to consume sufficient amounts required to replenish the highly metabolically active centre of the retina. The combination of Vitamins C, E, B2 (riboflavin), B6, B9 (folic acid) and B12 has proven antioxidant effects and good evidence of protecting the nerves in our eyes.
A unique feature of the MTHK Eye Vitamins is the addition of Maqui berry, which contains one of the highest concentrations of Anthocyanins, a phytonutrient in purple fruit. Aside from improvements in symptoms of Dry Eyes and asthenopia (pain in or around the eyes, blurred vision and headache), it also has anti-inflammatory effects.”
