Review of the vitamin complex for vision
Lutein Complex is a Russian multivitamin preparation based on natural oxygen-containing carotenoids: lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene. These powerful herbal antioxidants protect the organs of the visual system from premature aging. The composition of the dietary supplement contains vitamins and organic, mineral substances that not only maintain the functional state of the eyes, but also optimize the work of the visual apparatus. Lutein complex is simply necessary in conditions of increased visual load.
Long-term lutein deficiency provokes visual impairment.
In addition, the preparation includes a powerful antioxidant, selenium.
The substance accumulates in the center of the eye retina, where it is converted to zeaxanthin. Carotenoids play the role of peculiar light filters and protect important structures of the visual apparatus. They absorb the most aggressive, blue part of the spectrum, and neutralize the action of oxidants. Necessary for the prevention of pathologies such as retinal dystrophy and cataracts.
Stimulates blood circulation and metabolism in the tissues of the eyes. Contains anticyanodins, which help restore the visual pigment, so that a person quickly adapts to different levels of lighting. Blueberry concentrate improves twilight vision.
It promotes the transfer of photosignal, stimulates recovery and metabolic processes in the eye tissues. Normalizes the function of plasma membranes and activates energy metabolism.
Provitamin A (β-carotene)
One molecule of β-carotene creates two molecules of element A. With this substance the body is strengthened.
Optimizes visual perception, rejuvenates cellular tissue systems. Promotes redox processes and the synthesis of substances useful for the visual apparatus.
With it, damaged cells are restored faster. And also it promotes tissue respiration and metabolic processes. Makes capillaries more flexible and resilient.
Accelerates the restoration of the pigments of the visual system, normalizes transcapillary exchange.
Supports vitamin A at a normal level and promotes the synthesis of protein molecules.
Copper is the main element of some enzymes. The mineral substance makes the blood vessels more flexible and strong, eliminates hemorrhages.
The trace element is part of a whole family of enzymes that protect the body from oxidative damage. Selenium determines their activity. Protects the visual apparatus from the aggressive effects of oxygen oxides.

with a visual impairment such as myopia (myopia), when the image is focused not on the eye retina, but in front of it;
diabetes, diseases of the heart and blood vessels, rheumatoid arthritis, arterial hypertension are indications for taking the drug;
for the prevention of diseases of the visual apparatus;
if a person works with bright lighting (for example, spotlights, a flashlight or a welding machine, etc.);
for climbers, surfers and those who are keen on alpine skiing. This is due to the fact that the snow or water surface is highly reflective, and light rays too actively affect the visual organs;
after surgery for a quick recovery of the visual organs;
many hours of work at the computer – this is one of the most urgent reasons for prescribing the drug;
age-related changes in the organs of the visual system;
as a prophylactic agent for clouding of the lens, subatrophy of the eyeball, clouding of the vitreous fibers of the eye, etc.
The main and only contraindication of Lutein Complex is hypersensitivity to its individual components.
Multivitamin preparation is well absorbed, if you comply with the specified dosage. This is confirmed by doctors, who often use a dietary supplement in clinical practice.

Visobalans Opti as well as the Lutein Complex promotes the normalization of metabolic processes in the eye tissues, slows the progression of myopia, prevents the pathological processes of the retina.
Blueberry Forte differs from the Lutein Complex in the presence of vitamin C, as well as elements of group B. Blueberry improves visual acuity and relieves the symptoms of eyes tired from computer syndrome.
Vitrum Vision with lutein in the composition improves the function of the visual organs and is suitable for the prevention of age-related changes and high eyestrain.
