"Vision is perhaps the most important of the five senses, and our eyes need unique botanical nutrients daily to keep them healthy. This is critical now more than ever in our digital world, with increased demands on our eyes from excess screen time. The nutrients found in mbg's eye health+ provide five powerful antioxidants our eyes need to stay healthy. Two macular carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, act as our natural sunglasses and blue blockers, neutralizing the harmful effects of UV and blue light, and are crucial for macular health and longevity. Astaxanthin, often called the "king of antioxidants," also fights against oxidative stress in the eye, improves ocular blood flow, and protects the retina. The anthocyanins found in maqui berry support healthy tear production to fight dry eye, while saffron's crocins deliver anti-inflammatory effects that protect the retina. Together, these five powerhouse botanicals support healthy eyes for adults of all ages."
