We deliver key ingredients for eye health and vision.
Acute vision is an essential aspect of quality of life at every age. But with ageing populations and many people spending hours in front of computer screens, eye health is a growing global concern.
Our diet is a major factor in keeping eyes healthy. Among the most important nutrients are vitamins A, D, B12 and omega-3 fatty acids, which are required for acute vision. Lutein and vitamin E help protect our eyes from the cell damage caused by sunlight, radiation and the blue light from digital devices. In particular, age-related conditions such as macular degeneration, cataract and glaucoma, and secondary conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, all need effective risk reduction – the earlier, the better.
With our innovative and science-based range of health ingredients, we help our customers to develop effective eye health products. According to our vision “delivering the right nutrients to the right people at the right time,” we focus on improving health and reducing risk of disease at all life stages.
For work, play and an independent and fulfilled life, eye health and acute vision are essential. More than ever before, the modern world puts stress on our eyes: working days are mostly spent in front of computer screens and, even in our free time, we stare at smartphones, tablets and TVs. Contact lenses, air conditioning and environmental pollution are additional challenges – not to mention UV light and pollen.
The more we depend on our vision and the more stress we place on our eyes, the more we need to actively maintain our eye health. Contrary to popular belief, the need for eye health support begins early in life – before we’re even born. Only when all the necessary micronutrients are available in sufficient amounts healthy development is possible.
Even the risk of age-related diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration can be reduced and disease progression can be slowed down. Beside refractive errors, they are the most common causes of impaired vision and even blindness in industrialized nations. And, with an increasing age of the global population, eye diseases and loss of vision represent increasing burdens on national health systems.
A healthier diet or supplementation with the right micronutrients, however, can reduce the risk of eye diseases and decreasing eyesight.
