Chicago, IL, November 28, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Mercola.com launches Eye Support with Lutein -- the newest nutritional supplement in its roster.*
Dr. Joseph Mercola, the natural health expert and bestselling author who founded Mercola.com, stresses the importance of eye health support for those over 55 years old or belonging to one of these risk groups: smokers, the overweight, Caucasians, and females.
Dr. Mercola also encourages eye support for young individuals. “Healthy vision may seem like a distant concern when you’re young. In truth, the increased use of computers and video display terminals (VDTs) at home and work has led to an increased need for vision-supporting supplements,” he reveals.
Recent studies show that eye health ranks fourth among consumer health interests in the United States.
Dr. Mercola’s Eye Support supplement formula includes lutein and other antioxidants to help protect and enhance your eye health and vision.*
Lutein, a naturally occurring carotenoid, is used by the eyes for blue light absorption. The highest concentration of lutein in the eyes is in the macula, specifically in the macular pigment known to help protect your central vision. “Lutein helps support your cardiovascular system and your skin as well,*” adds Dr. Mercola.
Other antioxidants in Eye Support with Lutein include zeaxanthin for the retina, bilberries for vision enhancement, black currant for support of eye energy, and astaxanthin, which has 500 times the antioxidant capacity of vitamin E.*
Eye Support with Lutein is available in 30-capsule bottles.
To celebrate the launch, Mercola.com offered Free Shipping and Handling on an entire order with a 3-Pack of Eye Support with Lutein.
