I Comp from Priority One is an advanced eye support formula that contains high potency antioxidants and bioflavonoids plus a combination of other nutrients that give comprehensive support to help maintain healthy eye function.
Antioxidant-rich I Comp is an ideal supplement for anyone who wants to support eye health. People at risk for age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) or cataracts may derive benefits from zeaxanthin and lutein, which help protect the eyes from light-induced damage, especially from sunlight. Zinc is necessary for optimal function of the optic nerve. Zinc deficiency may lead to night blindness. This mineral can also be helpful for slowing the degeneration of the macula that leads to ARMD. Another antioxidant mineral, selenium, can reduce the risk of ARMD and cataracts. Selenium is also useful for glaucoma, myopia, dry eyes and eye health in general.
I Comp contains important carotenoids and other antioxidants to nourish the eyes and protect cellular tissues from free-radical damage. Lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the lens and macula tissues. In fact, zeaxanthin accounts for about 75% of the total carotenoids in the macula. Glutathione, a physiologically important antioxidant, is concentrated in the cornea and the lens of the eye. And the mineral zinc, which also functions as an antioxidant, concentrates in the retina.
Botanical support comes from bilberry, a rich source of anthocyanosides that can strengthen capillaries and improve blood flow to the eyes, especially the retina. It can be helpful for ARMD, cataracts and glaucoma. Bilberry can improve night vision and improve the response of the pupils to enhance adaption to glare as well as darkness. It can also help alleviate eye fatigue. This cousin of the blueberry can be beneficial for many other aspects of vision, even for people with healthy eyes.
This comprehensive formula also includes Dunaliella, a kind of red algae that is a rich source of carotenoids, especially beta-carotene, and eyebright. Eyebright has been used traditionally to treat a variety of eye complaints including inflammation, weeping and itching and sensitivity to light, among others.
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is helpful for ARMD. It penetrates the eye tissues and protects the lens and retina from degeneration. It can reduce the risk of cataracts for people with healthy eyes as well as for those with diabetes because it inhibits and enzyme that is implicated in cataract formation. ALA may also be useful for glaucoma and ophthalmoplegia, a condition that affects eye muscles.
Other nutritional support includes copper, which balances zinc and can be helpful for cataracts, and chromium (deficiency can lead to glaucoma). Antioxidant Vitamins E and C are also included. Vitamin E helps protect the eyes from oxidative damage that can lead to cataracts and it may be useful for those at risk of glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. Vitamin C concentrates in the lens of the eye and is important for maintaining tissues in the cornea.
Quercetin, rutin and other bioflavonoids along with the antioxidant NAC complete this exceptional eye health formula.
