A bit on some of Apteka-Vision's ingredients in studies, history and lore...
In a 2001 a national study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health/National Eye Institute entitled: Antioxidant Vitamins and Zinc Reduce Risk of Vision Loss from Age-Related Macular Degeneration, reported that Scientists found that people at high risk of developing advanced stages of AMD, a leading cause of vision loss, lowered their risk by about 25 percent when treated with a high-dose combination of vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and zinc. Additionally, in the same high risk group-- which includes people with intermediate AMD, or advanced AMD in one eye but not the other eye-- the nutrients reduced the risk of vision loss caused by advanced AMD by about 19 percent.

Bilberry (huckleberry): You may have heard the stories about how RAF pilots during WWII made a ritual of eating bilberries before their missions for tea to improve their eyesight in the dark skies of war time. As far as we know, this legend has never been confirmed, but still, the bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) continues to be an object of interest among scientists for its abundance of anthocyanosides, chemical compounds that have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Vitamin A: It's well known that vitamin A is key for good vision, a healthy immune system, and cell growth. There are two types of vitamin A; Retinoids which come from animal products, and Beta-carotene, which is the one we use in Apteka-Vision, which comes from plants.
Lutein: Lutein is found to be concentrated in the macula, a small area of the retina responsible for central vision. The hypothesis for the natural concentration is that lutein helps keep the eyes safe from oxidative stress and the high-energy photons of blue light. Various research studies have shown that a direct relationship exists between lutein intake and pigmentation in the eye. [Source: Wikipedia].
