‘Zoom’ing Your Way to Eye Strain

Thanks to Covid-19, you are probably spending more time than ever staring at a screen. If your eyes are feeling the strain of all those Zoom calls, online conferences and digital entertainment offerings, you should check out Twinlab’s OcuGuard Plus with Lutemax 2020 Lutein & Zeaxanthin.

OcuGuard Plus from Twinlab 

Twinlab’s OcuGuard Plus with Lutemax 2020 Lutein & Zeaxanthin is packed with a unique blend of vitamins and antioxidants designed to support the health of your eyes. One of the many things that make this product stand out is that the zeaxanthin and lutein in it are derived from marigolds before undergoing Twinlab’s patented purification process. 

Remember your mother telling you to eat your carrots because they were good for your eyes? Well, she was on to something. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, in fact, beta carotene gets its name from those carrots your mom urged you to eat. “The name beta carotene comes from the Greek ‘beta’ and Latin ‘carota’ (carrot). It is the yellow/orange pigment that gives vegetables and fruits their rich colors,” Medical News Today reports. 

As the experts at Medical News Today explain, “Beta carotene, like all carotenoids, is an antioxidant. An antioxidant is a substance that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules; it protects the body from free radicals. Free radicals,” Medical News Today goes on to say, “damage cells through oxidation. Eventually, the damage caused by free radicals can cause several chronic illnesses.”

The body converts beta carotene into vitamin A. And vitamin A is important to the health of your eyes and your vision. Twinlab also includes vitamins C, D and E in the mix as a way to help fight the oxidative stress that contributes to the ageing of your eyes. 

If you have problems swallowing pills, you will be glad to hear that OcuGuard comes in an easy-to-swallow capsule.
