Visionace® Plus

Visionace® Plus combines the Visionace Original multinutrient tablets with high quality Omega-3 capsules containing additional Lutein esters in a convenient dual pack.

The importance of Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are a special class of polyunsaturated fatty acids which are commonly found in plant seed oils, nut oils and oily fish such as sardines and salmon. A large number of scientific studies worldwide have highlighted the multiple benefits of dietary Omega-3 fatty acids in areas as diverse as heart, brain, and normal vision. The two most researched Omega-3 fatty acids are Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision1.

DHA and EPA in the retina

Omega-3 fatty acids play an important structural and functional role in the retina, the part of the eye that detects light. DHA is a component of special cells in the retina known as photoreceptors, responsible for converting light into nerve signals. The human retina contains over 120 million photoreceptors some of which are adapted to detect colour (cone cells) and others being adapted for low light (rod cells). Photoreceptors contain the highest concentration of DHA of any cell in the body, with DHA accounting for over 50% of the total fatty acid content2 3. Adequate levels of DHA must be maintained for the retina to continue to function properly and to maintain good visual acuity (clarity of vision)4 5.

Cell protection and antioxidant support

The macula is the central area of the retina, and contains the highest density of photoreceptors. It is responsible for detailed, fine vision. The retinal cells of the macular are particularly vulnerable to the effects of UV rays in sunlight and high oxygen tension which can result in cellular damage6 7. Visionace® Plus provides antioxidant vitamins C and E plus minerals zinc and selenium which support the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

The beneficial role of antioxidants is well known, however it is now also understood that Omega-3 fatty acids also play an important role, since DHA, one of the essential fatty acids, contributes to the maintenance of normal vision8.

The retinal cells are continually being renewed, so a constant supply of Omega-3 fatty acids and in particular DHA is required9 10. Since these cannot be made by the body a lack of these in the diet can have a direct effect on levels in the retina11. Fortunately increasing dietary intake can help to restore retinal Omega-3 levels12. Omega-3 fatty acids are now being recognised as being essential for eye health from before birth continuing into old age13.

Lutein

Lutein belongs to a class of compounds called carotenoids and is the dominant pigment in the retina. Both Visionace® and Visionace® Plus contain extra Lutemax® Lutein esters from marigold which have excellent bio-availability (easily absorbed by the body)14 15

Quality and Purity Guaranteed

Only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil which has been produced in Norway, is used in Visionace® Plus. To ensure maximum benefit, the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified, and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants.
