MULTI-PET CONVENIENT AND MADE IN THE USA: Equally effective for both cats and dogs, every ingredient is sourced locally in the USA
Siberian Ginseng Root Extract - Siberian Ginseng Root is a natural and potent adaptogen. Adaptogens support health and prevent disease in both sick and healthy individuals through a variety of nonspecific effects, which neutralize various environmental and physical stressors while remaining relatively safe and free of side effects, primarily by reducing chemical/biological stress.
Bilberry Extract - Bilberry extract has been shown to strengthen blood vessels in the eye and improve vision in people with diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy (damage to the retina). They are full of anthocyanosides, and is widely believed to improve vision handicaps in low light, decreasing vascular permeability and capillary fragility, though more research is still needed. It has also exhibited protective effects against and macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts, particularly when used with lutein (also included in this product!).
Green Tea Extract - Green tea contains catechins which belong to the family of antioxidants that includes C, vitamin E, lutein, and zeaxanthin and is well-known for its disease-fighting properties. They help protect the eyes from oxidative damage and vision loss. Scientists involved in the study found evidence that catechins can pass from the digestive tract of rodents to the tissues of their eyes and reduce oxidative stress for up to 20 hours after ingestion.
Aloe Vera Extract - Aloe vera is considered to be the most biologically active of the Aloe species; astonishingly, more than 75 potentially active components have been identified in the plant, including vitamins, minerals, saccharides, amino acids, anthraquinones, enzymes, lignin, saponins and salicylic acids. Aloe vera provides an amazing number of vitamins and minerals that help reduce inflammation and fight free radical damage.
Beta Carotene - Beta-carotene and other antioxidants may help delay the progression of age-related macular degeneration, which causes vision changes that are sometimes so severe that irreversible blindness can occur. Antioxidants are effective in slowing down the progression of macular degeneration symptoms because they can help prevent oxidative stress, which plays a significant role in the degeneration of cells and nerves in the retina/macula.
Lutein - Lutein and its relative zeaxanthin are pigments called carotenoids. They are related to other carotenoids, such as beta-carotene and lycopene. When our pets eat foods high in lutein or take it in supplement form, it’s believed to be pretty easily transported around the body, especially to the parts of the eyes called the macula and the lens. In fact, there are more than 600 different types of carotenoids found in nature, but only about 20 make their way into the eyes. Of those 20, zeaxanthin and lutein (both in this product!) are the only two that are deposited in high quantities into the macular portion of the eyes. It helps the eyes in three ways by 1) acting as a powerful antioxidant and fighting off free radical damage and reducing the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts. 2) fortifying health cells while preventing the growth of malignant ones, and 3) making sure the lens of the eye remains clear and free from cloudiness that could be indicative of cataracts, and the major reason it becomes cloudy in the first place is due to oxidation.
Zeaxanthin - A cousin of lutein, zeaxanthin helps protect the eye’s tissue, lens and macula, which clears vision and prevents glare, light sensitivity or disorders like cataracts in virtually the same ways that lutein does.
Leucine - Leucine is a branched chain amino acid typically utilized for its role in building muscle. However, recent research has showed how leucine can attenuate or reduce photoreceptor cell death morphologically and functionally, even when administration of it starts at later stages. Maintaining ATP levels via inhibiting ATP consumption is a promising strategy for preventing neuronal cell death.
Taurine - Taurine is the most plentiful amino acid in the retina of the eye and helps protect against retinal degeneration, particularly of retinal ganglion cell (RGC) degeneration.
Biotin - Biotin benefits include helping the growth and maintenance of bodily tissues, including to help repair and build muscles. When tissue or muscle is broken down, B vitamins like vitamin B7 biotin work to build back the strength of muscle and tissue that leads to growth. Biotin also helps fortify the myelin sheathe of nerve endings found in the eyes.
Calcium Ascorbate - Calcium ascorbate, also known as vitamin C, is extremely beneficial to the blood vessels located in the eyes. It reduces the risk of cataracts as well as slowing the progression of advanced AMD (age-related macular degeneration) by as much as 25%.
Selenium Protein Complex - Selenium is a trace mineral that is known for its strong antioxidant properties. Selenium helps the body absorp vitamin E, which is essential for healthy vision. Vitamin E reduces the risk of age-related eye health issues. Selenium can help to slow the progression of detrimental symptoms that affect vision.
Vitamin-Enriched Wheat - A gentle but effective bio-stimulator; contains an optimal formulation of fibers, minerals, and vitamins such as phosphorus, zinc, iron, potassium, B-vitamins, and folate.
