Twinlab Ocuguard Plus

Advanced vitamin & antioxidant supplement for the eyes. OcuGuard Plus with Lutein is an advanced vitamin and antioxidant nutritional supplement specifically formulated for the eyes. Each easy-to-swallow capsule provides a special combination of micronutrients the eyes may require, including lutein and high potency beta-carotene, which are potent antioxidant carotenoids. Lutein is the most abundant carotenoid in fruits and vegetables, and is found to be highly concentrated in the macula of the eye. Other nutrients included in this synergistic formula are zinc from zinc picolinate (a chelated form of zinc that is easy for the body to absorb and use), natural Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Selenium, and much more. These are nutrients which many people may not get enough of in their regular diet alone and which more and more scientific and medical research suggests contribute to proper ocular nutrition. Each OcuGuard Plus capsule contains pure, highly concentrated nutrients. Their contents are dry and stable, with no added sugars salt (sodium), preservatives, or tablet binders and coatings. The lutein in this product is extracted from marigolds and purified by an exclusive patent-purified by an exclusive patented process (U.S. patent 5,382,714 and 5,648,564). This product is well tolerated by most highly allergic individuals. It contains no soy, yeast, milk, or egg products. It is manufactured at our state-of-the-art facilities with stringent quality control assuring correct potencies and outstanding freshness. OcuGuard Plus with Lutein is packaged in a glass bottle for maximum quality. Beta-Carotene is a non-toxic source of Vitamin A. Zinc Picolinate is a chelated form of zinc that provides superior absorption and bio-availability. N-Acetyl-Cysteine is a precursor of Glutathione in the body and is a more stable and effective antioxidant than the sulfur containing amino acid l-cysteine.
