Thorne Ocu-Clear enhances ocular antioxidant activity, helps maintain normal intraocular pressure, strengthens ocular collagen structures, and improves circulation to the eye to enhance vision. During waking hours, the eye is continuously exposed to oxygen and light, and unavoidably exposed to smoke, pollutants, and chemicals. The resultant oxidative processes and decreased antioxidant capacity are implicated in many eye-related problems.
Several antioxidant vitamins, minerals, carotenes, and flavonoids have been shown to be essential for clear vision and the health of the eye. Ocu-Clear contains a broad spectrum of nutrients and plant extracts that are vital to optimal eye health.
The protective nutrients in Thorne Ocu-Clear include the full spectrum of carotenes (from mixed carotenes), selenium, zinc, vitamin C, lipoic acid, glutathione, and vitamin E, all of which are vital components of the antioxidant capacity of the retina and lens of the eye.
Plant extracts also provide important protection for the eye.
Lutein: Lutein is a vital component of the macula, and may provide antioxidant protection to this area of the retina.
Vaccinium Myrtillus (Bilberry Extract): Vaccinium myrtillus (bilberry extract) is an excellent source of anthocyanoside flavonoids, which have an affinity for the retina. In addition to their antioxidant activity, these flavonoids act to stabilize vascular and collagenous structures.
Ginkgo Biloba: Ginkgo biloba also acts as an antioxidant and membrane stabilizer.
Quercetin: Quercetin is an aldose reductase inhibitor, which reduces sorbitol accumulation in the lens of the eye. Quercetin chalcone is Thorne’s patented, well-absorbed, water-soluble quercetin.
Taurine: The retina of the eye contains one of the highest concentrations of the amino acid taurine in the body. In addition to acting as an antioxidant in the eye, taurine seems to be a regulator of neuronal excitability, osmoregulation, detoxification, and membrane stabilization.
