Description of Naturophta Macula New Formula
It has long been known that a healthy nutrition is important to maintain and promote our health. Nowadays our eating habits are subject to the rhythm of modern life, so our nourishment doesn't always contain enough vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that our body needs to develop fully. In such cases dietary supplements are a convenient and simple solution to complement our daily intake.
Certain factors such as aging, unhealthy diet, smoking and bright light are harmful to our visual cells and lead to the formation of free radicals and singlet oxygen. Of course, the cell has antioxidant mechanisms to protect itself. If however, there are too many free radicals present, these mechanisms are not sufficient and the cell is damaged. This is known as oxidative stress.
The fight against oxidative stress is complex. Multiple defense mechanisms of the cell are involved. In order to be able to more effectively fight against oxidative stress, it is necessary to take different categories of anti-oxidants.
1 - Carotenoids (lutein - zeaxanthin): Lutein is one of the building blocks of the retina and the lens. Lutein and zeaxanthin are yellow pigments from the family of the essential carotenoids that can not be made in the human body. They occur naturally in vegetables with large, green leaves.
2 - Vitamins A, B, C and E: Vitamin A and Vitamin B2 contribute to the maintenance of normal vision. The vitamins B2, C and E help protect the cells against oxidative stress.
3 - copper, selenium and zinc: These minerals help protect the cells against oxidative stress.
The intake should be limited to a couple of weeks/months.
