Blackmores Lutein-Vision™ is an antioxidant formula for maintaining eye health. It helps to maintain and protect health of macular region and increases density of the macular pigment in the eye to maintain good eyesight and improve visual sharpness.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids naturally found in the human eye. The highest concentration is found in the macular area of the retina. They are also present in the lens.
In the macula, lutein and zeaxanthin naturally form a layer of yellow pigments called the macular pigments, which serves as an effective natural filter of the most damaging light (near-to-UV blue light) that reaches the retina.
Supplements containing natural lutein and zeaxanthin esters have been shown in human trials to increase the density of the macular pigments. Higher macular pigment density is associated with healthier eyes and the retention of youthful visual sensitivity.
In addition to absorbing potentially harmful light, lutein and zeaxanthin also function as antioxidants and may help slow down age-related visual loss by decreasing the life-long cumulative effects of oxidative damage to the retina and lens.
Lutein-Vision™ also contains selenium as selenomethionine, an easily absorbed form of selenium. Selenium has an important antioxidant function in the eye as part of an antioxidant enzyme called glutathione peroxidase (GSH). GSH is concentrated in the lens where it has an important role in preserving the clarity of the lens and preserving healthy eye function.

The Intense Hawaiian Sun
Spirulina Pacifica is grown at 19 degree N altitude, where the tropical sun beats down upon our cultures year round. Spirulina Pacifica thrives unharmed by producing an abundance of mixed carotenoids and antioxidant enzymes.
A Superior Strain
Growing conditions unique to Hawaii, have given birth to a distinctive beta-carotene rich strain and the highest level of mixed carotenoids of any Spirulina in the world.
Ocean Source Minerals
Nutrient-rich ocean water pumped from a depth of 2,000 feet provides more than 90 minerals including calcium, magnesium and trace elements.
Ocean Chill Drying
Patented Ocean Chill Drying technology eliminates oxidation of carotenes and fatty acids, ensures highest level of mixed carotenoids and phytonutrients.
Cold Process Tablets
The process is heat-free which produces healthy tablets with little or no loss of nutrients.
Glass bottles protect Stazen’s beta-carotene and other nutrients. Studies show that within1 month of packaging in plastic, some nutrients (Beta carotene included) have lost 20% of their potency. In glass, negligible amounts have been lost. Also, oxygen molecules are so small that they can go right through plastic bottles, ruining an anti-oxidant’s value. Glass does not permit this.
ISO 9002 Certified
Internationally recognized standards of quality guarantee consistency and reliability. Cyanotech was the first micro algae company to be certified compliant with ISO 9002-94 standards.
