The Next Best Thing to Night Vision Goggles
For millions of Americans, maintaining healthy night vision is an essential
quality of life issue. It is also a critical safety concern, especially when it
comes to driving at night. According to the National Safety Council, fatality
rates at night are 3x higher than those during the day.
with age, it is normal for the cornea and the lens of eye to become more
sensitive to the glare of oncoming headlights or streetlights. Age-related
changes in the eye can also impact contrast sensitivity, which is the ability to
discern differences in brightness, making it more difficult to see objects on
the roadway at night.
Evidence-based Ingredients to support healthy vision*
Fortunately, the latest research shows that certain nutritional compounds can
effectively support healthy night vision. NightSight™ features three leading
evidence-based, researched ingredients for support of healthy vision: European
Black Currant Extract, Lutein and Zeaxanthin.*
European Black Currant Extract -- See Better Night and day with C3G!*
Nature has loaded berries with powerful antioxidants called "anthocyanins."
These health-enhancing compounds are the plant pigments that that give
these fruits their distinctive purple color. It turns out that anthocyanins are
one of nature’s greatest gifts to the eyes and healthy vision.*
"C3G helps me see!"
Black currant in particular contains C3G, an especially vision-friendly
anthocyanin that has been shown to help replenish rhodopsin, a critical protein
found in the retina that absorbs light entering the eye.* Having enough
rhodopsin in the eye is vital to seeing in the dark. C3G stands for
"Cyanidin-3-glucoside" but you don’t need to remember that, just think "C3G
helps me see!"
Help relieve occasional visual fatigue from everyday computer use.*
NightSight™ contains a special European Black Currant Extract produced from
black currants that are grown and harvested for maximum content of anthocyanins
and C3G. It supplies as much C3G as black currant extract that has been shown
in published research to improve dark adaptation and help relieve occasional
visual fatigue from everyday computer use.*
FloraGLO® Lutein—the #1 Doctor Recommended Lutein Brand in America†
Lutein is another vision-supporting pigment that belongs to the
family of compounds called "carotenoids."* (Beta carotene is a familiar
carotenoid.) Lutein has a strong affinity for the eye. Deposited in the retina,
Lutein plays a vital role in keeping the eye healthy by filtering blue-light.*
Due to its short wavelength, blue light can be particularly hard on the eye.
Studies show that lutein supports optimal pigment storage in the retina, which
is a key to long-term eye health.* This same research has also shown that Lutein
helps the eyes recover from glare caused by exposure to bright light.*
NightSight™ contains FloraGLO® Lutein, recognized as the number one doctor
recommended eye ingredient in America, thanks to the extensive research it has
Zeaxanthin—Lutein’s Number One Dancing Partner for Healthy Eyes*
Zeaxanthin is a sister carotenoid to lutein. Just like, lutein, zeaxanthin
helps build up the "optical density" of eye pigment.* NightSight™ contains
lutein and zeaxanthin in the exact amounts and ratio used in a landmark study
published in Optometry and Vision Science, which is the official publication of
the American Academy of Optometry.
Not just Zeaxanthin, OPTISHARP™ Zeaxanthin
After 6 months of use, this lutein-zeaxanthin combination increased retinal
pigment density by an average of nearly 40 percent, while at the same time
increasing tolerance to intense glaring light by nearly 60%. NightSight™
features OPTISHARP® zeaxanthin, which has been shown to support visual
performance in low light when teamed up with lutein.*
Bioperine® for Enhanced Absorption*
Absorption is always key to the effectiveness of a supplement, which is why
NightSight™ rounds out with Bioperine®, a patented absorption enhancer.
Bioperine® is a special extract of black pepper that helps nutrients absorb
through the GI tract and into the bloodstream.*
