What is Vision Support Formula?

Vision Support Formula by BLUESPRING is an optimal blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, carotenoids, and bioflavenoids that have been scientifically proven to be essential to the eyes. This unique formula contains ingredients of the highest quality, all in standardized proportions for proper eye health and vision protection.

How Does it Help my Problem?

The eyes are made up of many parts that work together to give sight. Normal wear and tear and years of exposure to light all play a role in the potential development of eye problems often seen with aging, especially after the age of 40. However, vitamin and nutrient deficiencies, disease, and medication can all play a role in vision problems.

Taking care of the eyes with proper nutrition is important at any age. Vitamins such as A and C and minerals such as zinc and selenium, are potent antioxidants that reduce the harmful effects to the body caused by normal, everyday functioning. Many vitamins and minerals are not created by the body and need to be consumed in the diet through foods or supplements.

Although some vision problems that occur during the aging process cannot be changed with diet or supplementation, many others can be prevented and even eliminated with the proper nutrition. Many changes to vision can be the result of certain vitamin, mineral, or nutrient deficiencies in the body. For those who do not always eat a properly balanced diet, supplementation with the proper nutrients can be an important daily habit to consider.

Two of the most common eye conditions that often develop during the aging process can be prevented or even treated with proper nutrition or supplementation. These include cataracts and macular degeneration, often referred to as age related macular degeneration.

Cataracts are often thought of as an age related eye problem, but can affect people of any age. This is a clouding or discoloration of the clear lens that covers the eye. The lens is made of mostly water and proteins. When the proteins clump together, this leads to the formation of cataracts over time. Cataracts may not be noticeable when they first develop, but as they progress and grow larger, vision will become blurry or tinted with a brownish color. Getting enough antioxidants, and other nutrients such as carotenoids and bioflavenoids, in the diet can delay the formation or progression of cataracts in the eyes.

Age related macular degeneration occurs when the macula degenerates, causing blurriness or even blindness in the center of the field of vision. The macula is found in the center of the retina and is responsible for the center of the field of vision, so it stands to reason that if the macula becomes damaged, the center of vision becomes damaged as well. There are two forms of degeneration to the macula, wet and dry. Dry macular degeneration occurs from thinning of the tissue during aging. Wet macular degeneration occurs from the growth and leakage of blood vessels underneath the macula. Although macular degeneration cannot be cured, progression of the disease can be slowed and even halted and symptoms reduced. Vision loss from age related macular degeneration can be prevented in even some moderate to severe cases with proper nutrition or supplementation.

Many other diseases and conditions in the body can cause symptoms in the eyes and affect eye health as well. The eyes may be a "window to the soul", and they are definitely a window to the body's health. Some diseases that may affect the eyes due to increased inflammation or decrease in blood flow to the eyes include diabetes, high blood pressure, immune system disorders, cancer, and multiple sclerosis.

Most problems related to aging occur from oxidation that can occur not only from day to day lifestyle choices, but simply by natural body functions. Thus, antioxidants play an important role in preventing age related disease and conditions.

By keeping the eyes healthy with proper vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, the risk of age related eye conditions can be reduced. The earlier healthy habits are begun, the quicker the results to health can be noticed and the less damage is done to the body over time.

When deciding on a product to help support eye health and proper functioning of vision, it can be confusing due to the number of products available, all making the same claims. However, in order for a product to work effectively and the way it is claimed to work, the ingredients should be of a certain quality, and standardized to be sure that each dose contains the right amount of each ingredient.

At BLUESPRING, only standardized high quality ingredients are used to be sure that each dose is optimized for the proper benefits to vision and eye health. Each ingredient is tested for efficacy and stability, while the product is made under Good Manufacturing Practices in the USA. You can be assured that each dose of 2 capsules per day contains the optimal blend of ingredients for healthy eyes and vision, as well as the best ingredients to be sure these nutrients are used most effectively by the body.

What does all of this mean?

It means that proper nutrition can help with even age related conditions, and the body often needs additional help in the form of supplementation to get the nutrition it needs to work properly. This nutrition needs to be provided in precisely blended, optimally balanced product in order to produce the desired results.

Healthy Tips

There are many things that can be done to prevent age related conditions to the eyes and protect vision for the future. Certain things can also be done for existing vision or eye problems as well, since many conditions can be slowed or alleviated with proper nutrition and eye care.

Eat a heart healthy die for healthy eyes

A heart healthy diet also helps maintain eye health as well. Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and high in vegetables and fruit can keep blood vessels from becoming narrowed and blocked, including blood vessels in the eyes. Problems with the heart, with blood vessels, and blood pressure can all effect eye health by constricting blood flow to the eyes. Blood carries essential nutrients throughout the body, so adequate blood flow to the eyes is essential to proper eye functioning and healthy vision.

Wear sunglasses to protect vision

It is never too late to start caring for the eyes. Even for those who have gone years without wearing sunglasses, it is never too late to start, as strong light and UV rays have an accumulative effect on vision and eye health. Strong light and UV rays cause wear and tear and oxidation to all parts of the eye, as light travels first through the lens through the eye, then the macula to the retina.

Wearing sunglasses now can help prevent further UV damage that can lead to cataract formation or macular degeneration later on down the line. Although a hat may also protect the eyes from direct sunlight, UV rays can be reflected in other surfaces. The reflective effects are obvious on surfaces such as snow and water, but UV rays can even reflect off of other surfaces, such as sand and even concrete.

Keep other diseases and conditions in check for the sake of eye health

Other diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes can all take a toll on the health of the eyes as well.

Eat the appropriate diet as required by the specific condition or conditions. Keep blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose levels under control. Keep all doctor's appointments and have all recommended testing done to not only keep diseases and conditions under control for overall health and wellness but to prevent disease and condition related health effects from affecting vision and eye health.

Proper nutrition and supplements may help combat some of the effects from other diseases and conditions on the eyes, but keeping these conditions under control offers the best effects for overall health and wellness.

Get regular eye checkups to catch eye problems early

Regular eye examinations can catch eye diseases such as glaucoma and age related macular degeneration early. When caught early, progression of these conditions may be slowed with proper nutrition and supplements.

Many insurance companies cover regular eye exams, and medicare covers glaucoma examinations as well. It is important to catch eye problems early to begin treatment and slow progression as soon as possible.

Certain nutrients found in foods and supplements can relieve symptoms and slow the progression of certain conditions, and when these conditions are found early, there is a better change these conditions will not progress rapidly into loss of vision with proper treatment.

Eat your veggies...and other healthy foods, for strong eyes and vision

Green, leafy vegetables contain strong antioxidants such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and zinc, which have been shown to reduce free radicals that can cause damage all over the body.

These vegetable, as well as dark, colorful fruits including berries, and amino acid rich eggs, all include special carotenoids called lutein and zeaxanthin, that are proven to increase health in the eyes. These carotenoids are found in higher concentrations in the eyes than anywhere else in the body, so it stands to reason that a deficiency can have a strong impact on eye health and vision.

The body cannot produce these carotenoids on its own, so they must be ingested in the form of foods that are rich in lutein and zeaxanthin or by supplements that include these special carotenoids.

Recent Studies Prove Traditional Remedies Work

Numerous studies have been performed on the effects that certain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients have on eye health and diseases related to the eyes over the years. These studies prove the effectiveness of certain antioxidants and nutrients on vision and eye health, even during aging, and how these ingredients can prevent or slow the progression of certain age related diseases of the eyes, including cataracts and macular degeneration.

In a study published in JAMA's Opthamology journal, head author Julie A. Mares, PhD, discusses which vitamins are important for eye health. Certain vitamin and mineral deficiencies were shown to cause or increase the risk of specific age related eye conditions that affect the eye lens and the retina, including cataracts and macular degeneration. In the study, supplementation with certain vitamins was evaluated to see if by adding these vitamins to prevent deficiencies would help to prevent these conditions.

It was discovered that certain vitamins not only help the eyes, but are necessary for healthy eyes through the years. The vitamins not only prevented deficiency, but encouraged healthy eyes and vision. Vitamins such as C and E and the mineral zinc are important antioxidants that can prevent macular degeneration over the years to keep central eye vision healthy and clear.

According to the American Optometric Association, lutein and zeaxanthin are essential to eye health. These nutrients are found useful in not only preventing both cataracts and age related macular degeneration, but slowly the progression of both condition, as well as preventing vision loss due to either condition. Because the body does not synthesize these essential carotenoids on its own, it is recommended that daily supplements or fortified foods are used to obtain these nutrients for proper eye health and functioning.

BLUESPRING Vision Support Formula contains scientifically proven ingredients shown to help protect vision and enhance the health of the eyes.

In the news...

Sumathi Reddy, in an article published recently in The Wall Street Journal, discusses the benefits of taking care of the eyes beginning at an early age. The importance of using eye protection from UV and of consuming the appropriate nutrients have been scientifically proven to be effective in preventing age related eye issues such as the development of cataracts and macular degeneration.

People who take supplements for eye health with the proper ingredients have a reduced risk of developing these conditions by as much as 25 percent, according to a study mentioned in the article that was performed by the National Institute of Health.

Another study used in this news article performed by the National Eye Institute showed that supplements with added lutein and zeaxanthin can actually improve progression of advanced age related macular degeneration by as much as 20 percent.

Sumathi Reddy also obtains advice from optometrist, Gary Edding, who states that over the counter eye glasses should not be used as a replacement for prescription eye glasses. Improper prescription strengths can cause the eye to lose strength and ability to focus quicker than without the use of lenses.

It is not too late to take control of your sight. With the proper supplement and nutrition, eye problems can be prevented or even controlled once they have started. Be sure your supplement has quality ingredients in standardized formulas that are scientifically proven, such as those in BLUESPRING Vision Support Formula.

What Ingredients are in Vision Support Formula?

The effectiveness of Vision Support Formula by BLUESPRING is due to the unique blend of highest quality standardized ingredients. Each ingredient is carefully chosen because of clinical studies specifically related to positive results.

Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid)

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is quickly eliminated from the human body. Continual and sufficient intake, either through supplementation or diet, is necessary to avoid deficiency-related eyesight disturbances, such as blurred vision, light sensitivity and sticky-feeling eyes. The lens of the eye also contains high amounts of vitamin C, and the nutrient may be important for reducing risk of cataracts. The ascorbic acid form of vitamin C, which is the type used in Vision Support Formula, is the most studied form and is easily absorbed.

Zinc (as monomethionine)

Zinc is a vital mineral involved in numerous processes throughout the body, including many aspects of eye health. The eye contains high concentrations of zinc, especially in the macula and the choroid, which is the vascular tissue underneath the retina. Zinc is essential for absorption of Vitamin A and its ability to make melanin, which is required for healthy eyes. In addition, zinc has been shown by studies to dramatically reduce risks of macular degeneration and loss of visual acuity when it is taken in combination with vitamins E and C and beta-carotene.

BLUESPRING uses only the highest quality zinc in a patented form called L-Opti-Zinc.

L-Opti-Zinc is a top quality form of zinc, which is made complex with methionine. As compared to other zinc, L-Opti-Zinc has better absorption and longer retention. Also, it does not get in the way of copper absorption.

How L-Opti-Zinc Works

Zinc is an important trace mineral, which the body requires to stay healthy and fit. This is needed for growth and development, digestion, respiration, and proper functioning of the brain, nerve, immune system and vision. Since the body does not produce enough of zinc, this has to be obtained through diet.

L-Opti-Zinc is patented. It consists of zinc, which is bound to l-methionine. This is the amino acid that the body absorbs best. Pre-clinical studies prove that L-Opti-Zinc has better absorption, longer retention, and is more effective when compared to other tested zinc.

L-Opti-Zinc promotes the following:

  • Vision health
  • Nail, skin, hair health
  • Prostate health
  • Nerve function
  • Immune system function
  • Growth, development and reproduction
  • Digestion
  • Testosterone levels

It is easy to see that the positive side effects of using Zinc for vision health are all very good.

Other Zinc Benefits

Since zinc has antioxidant qualities, it protects the healthy cells from the possible damaging effects of free radicals. These unstable molecules are caused by natural processes of the body like digestion and exercise. They can also be a result of environmental contaminants such as air pollution, cigarette smoking, radiation, and ultraviolet light. They are also believed to be a contributory factor to the aging process and the development of disease.

Selenium (as amino acid complex)

The trace mineral selenium helps the body absorb various antioxidants, including vitamin E, which play important roles in the prevention of eye diseases and the reduction of their development. Selenium also may be important for the guarding of the eye's lens and reducing the risk of cataracts thanks to the mineral's involvement in production of important antioxidant enzymes glutathione S-transferase and glutathione peroxidase, which help protect the lens against formation of age-related cataracts.

Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus)

Bilberry, an antioxidant-packed berry related to huckleberries, cranberries and American blueberries, grows wild throughout northern Europe. Studies have shown this fruit to have major health benefits, including several involved in vision. Bilberry supplementation is effective against both cataracts and macular degeneration, and its ability to improve night vision has been known since British pilots consumed it as a jam during World War II.

Eyebright (Euphrasis officinalis) herb

This herb's name comes from its reputation for being useful in the treatment of various eye maladies. Natural medicine commonly uses eyebright as external eyewash in cases of conjunctivitis, vision problems, light intolerance and itching. However, eyebright is also considered an excellent remedy for ear, nose and throat health, with action against allergies, sinusitis, sore throat and hay fever. As this system is directly connected to the eyes, eyebright can be considered an essential component of a complete eye health formula.

Lutein from Marigold (Calendula officinalis) blossoms

Lutein, a xanthophyll present in numerous plants, is a carotenoid that has undergone tremendous research for its ability to protect eye health. Throughout nature, lutein shields plants from exposure to sunlight, and it accomplishes the same for the eyes, where it also neutralizes free radicals that would otherwise cause damage. Research has shown lutein supplementation to reduce the need for surgery among patients with cataracts. Studies have also shown that risks of age-related macular degeneration are also significantly lower for people who consume larger amounts of lutein. Finally, this antioxidant helps treat retinitis pigmentosa, an eye disease that results in vision loss over time.

BLUESPRING uses only the best Lutein found in a patented Marigold Extract called FloraGLO.

About FloraGLO - There are 600 - plus carotenoids found in nature, but only a few feature an amount of lutein that is absorbed by the body through dietary intake. Green leafy vegetables such as the chard, cabbage, broccoli and spinach contains lutein, but only 2% of its content are absorbed by the body since it cannot be synthesized from its original form. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are essential to the eyes since it protects the Macula of the eye from damages caused by Ultra Violet exposure, aging, and lack of nutrition. Since lutein is essential to our vision's health, lutein supplementation comes as an effective solution to increase lutein intake.

FloraGLO Lutien supplements are made from Marigold plants, which contain great amounts of the carotenoid Lutein. The Marigold plants are patented through purified crystallization, reaching its molecular level, extracting the original form of Lutein. The carotenoid Lutein and zeaxanthin can only be synthesized by plants, which give its yellow pigmentation and the ability to absorb light. Once it is absorbed by the body, Lutein is stored in the macula area of the eye, which is called the little yellow spot, that responsible for 20/20 vision and contains the photo-receptor cells.

How FloraGLO Works?

The Marigold flowers undergo the patent process, which will synthesize the lutein to its original form that can be taken and effectively absorbed by the body. The seeds are carefully extracted from the flowers, separate it, and form it into lutein esters, which will be saponificated and will undergo lutein purification and crystallization. The importance of the crystallization process is to allow the optimal absorption of the lutein when it reaches the intestine. This makes FloraGLO Lutein superior over other lutein.

A study about lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation conducted by Dr. Justine Green aims to prove that a great amount of Lutein and Zeaxanthin can cause a positive effect to the eye damage caused by the glaring light and photo stress. The study had a positive result, proving that the supplementation of Lutein and Zeaxanthin found in FloraGlo can increase the visual performance and can protect the eyes from glaring light.

Lycopene (from tomatoes)

Lycopene is a pigment that gives many vegetables and fruits their red color, but it's also a powerful antioxidant with major health benefits. Studies have found that risks of macular degeneration may be halved by regular consumption of lycopene. According to University of Toronto biochemist Sandiv Agarway, Ph.D., lycopene is likely to be preventative against vision problems, including cataracts, thanks to its fat solubility, which lets it reach the parts of the eyes that are most vulnerable to damage resulting from oxidation.

Quercetin

The flavonoid quercetin, present in many vegetables, fruits and grains, is a potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory effects that protect the eyes in several ways. For protection against cataracts, quercetin is more effective than any other bioflavonoid. The small blood vessels present in the retina are also protected from leakage by quercetin. In diabetics, quercetin guards against loss of vision by inhibiting production of aldose reductase, an enzyme made by the body in response to high levels of blood sugar.

Citrus bioflavonoids

Bioflavonoids are among the most powerful antioxidants for preservation of health, and citrus bioflavonoids are some of the best researched among them. The macula is shielded from oxidation by citrus bioflavonoids, helping vision remain clear longer. Vitamin C, which is vital for eye health, is more easily absorbed and utilized by the body when citrus bioflavonoids are present.

L-Taurine

Taurine is less well known than many other eye supplements, but it plays a massive role in long-term preservation of eye health. The amino acid helps guard against age-related macular degeneration, and its deficiency is known to give rise to retinal degeneration. When sufficient taurine is consumed, the retina is protected from the damaging effects of photochemical stress. In a study of diabetic rats, long-term taurine supplementation eliminated stress caused by oxidation and preserved retina health.

Beta Carotene (from D. salina)

Beta-carotene, an antioxidant and precursor to vitamin A, is heavily involved in protection of eye health, especially night vision. Older adults often suffer reduced clarity at night, and this deterioration may be reduced by supplementation with beta-carotene. Studies have shown that beta-carotene is especially effective for eye health when used in combination with zinc and other antioxidants.

BLUESPRING uses only the brand name of Betatene which is the highest quality certified mixed Natural Carotenoids.

Betatene is a mixture of natural carotenoids derived from Dunaliella salina algae. This formula is a combination of a unique blend of essential carotenoids found in vegetables and fruits to promote healthy vision, strong bones and healthy teeth.

Carotenoids are antioxidants, which help protect the body from the damages caused by free-radicals. Because of their tough antioxidant properties, carotenoids are essential to eye health. Betatene also contains lycopene, lutein, and carotene, which help prevent eye disorders. Health research studies show its potential for preventing cataracts and macular degeneration.

Moreover, Betatene features natural vitamin E, zeaxanthin, lutein, and vitamin A, which makes it a complete source of Carotenoids and more effective compared to other carotenoid brands.
