Ultra Preventive® Vision is a comprehensive multivitamin/ mineral formula specially designed to support ocular health with specific phytonutrients and carotenoids. These nutrients help support eye health in conditions such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, while helping to reduce the risk of developing cataracts and improving macular pigment optical density. Additionally, this unique formula provides antioxidants for the maintenance of eye health.
The formula features 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. Vitamin A functions in the retinal cells as a component of rhodopsin, a light-sensitive pigment that supports night vision. 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. 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).
