Visutein Capsules (Unicity)
- Drugs index
VISUtein is Unicity's product providing key nutrients for the eye.
BENEFITS AND RESEARCH
The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin play an important role in eye health. Low concentrations of these phytonutrients in the retina have been associated with age-related macula degeneration (AMD). Studies have shown, that supplementation with high levels of lutein, as present in VISUtein, can restore the lutein concentration in the retina. The product further features important vitamins, and carotenoids that are important in preserving overall eye health and supporting clear vision. N-acetyl cysteine is added to boost the glutathion levels in the retina. Low glutathion levels have been shown to reduce protection of the eye against oxidative stress. A recent clinical study with VISUtein has shown that AMD patients experience clear improvements in visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, and recovery from a flash. *
