Ocu Support has been formulated to provide comprehensive nutritional
protection for the eyes. Ocu Support contains 10 mg of available Lutein, a critical pigment
of the macula, lens, and other ocular tissues. Lutein is a powerful antioxidant related to betacarotene
that defends the eye from the harmful effects of sunlight. Ocu Support has also
included Green Tea Extract, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Grape Seed Extract, and other synergists in
this formula to maximize its antioxidant potential. Other ingredients like beta-Carotene, B
vitamins, Zinc, and Taurine are known to support overall eye health and function.*
With eye health becoming a primary concern of aging, a great deal of recent research has
focused on maintaining healthy eyes. It is well established that the Vitamin A family of nutrients
(retinoids and carotenoids) is critical to ocular nutrition. One specific carotenoid, Lutein (and
its precursor, Zeaxanthin), has been identified as playing a central role in macular health.
Lutein is an antioxidant that appears to quench or reduce harmful free radicals. Lutein also
filters the high-energy, blue wavelengths of light from the visible-light spectrum by as much
as 90%. It is important to carefully balance lutein with beta-carotene in a clinical eye formula,
avoiding too much carotene, as they compete for absorption.
Ocu Support? is nutritionally balanced, having been formulated to provide comprehensive
protection for the eyes. Studies suggest that 6-10 mg of Lutein per day is necessary to
realize health benefits. One serving of Ocu Support supplies the full 10 mg of Lutein. Ocu
Support? has also included useful antioxidants like Green Tea Extract, Alpha-Lipoic Acid,
Bilberry, and Grape Seed Extract.
Ocu Support? contains FloraGLO® Lutein and Zeaxanthin from Marigold Flower Extracts.
Numerous peer-reviewed studies link the natural antioxidant lutein with important eye-health
benefits. Newer science suggests lutein promotes healthy skin. FloraGLO® Lutein is the
world?s leading patented, purified lutein source.*

The action of oral anticoagulant medications may be affected by Vitamin E and excessive
bleeding has been associated with this combination and coagulation abnormalities. Amiloride
could reduce zinc excretion from the body, leading to toxic zinc accumulation. Zinc may
interfere with the absorption of penicillamine, fluoroquinolone and tetracycline so it may be
advisable to take zinc at least 2 hours apart. Seek medical supervision before taking chromium
if you are taking oral diabetes medications or insulin.
