Proof of quality - FloraGLO®

FloraGLO® is a suspension with lutein extracted from marigold flowers (Tagetes erecta).

Proof of quality - FloraGLO®

FloraGLO® is a suspension with lutein extracted from marigold flowers (Tagetes erecta). Lutein is primarily found in the retina (especially in the yellow spot, macula lutea) and the lens of the eye.

 

FloraGLO® lutein is the most studied brand of lutein in the world. It has superior absorption because it provides the same absorbable form of lutein found in vegetables and other foods.

 

FloraGLO® lutein was used in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS2).

Bilberry

Bilberry helps protect eyes. Bilberry fruits contain sugars, organic acids, phenolic acids, flavonoids and anthocyanins. Fresh fruits contain 0.5% of anthocyanin. Bilberry protects the blood vessels of the eye and retinal photoreceptors.

Zinc

Zinc helps to maintain normal vision and protect cells from oxidative stress.

Elementary visual functions include:

 

  • Adaptation

 

Adaptation is the adaptation of the eye to different levels of light and darkness. It is realized by changing the aperture of the iris (pupil).

 

  • Accomodation

 

Eye accommodation is the ability of the eye lens to change its optical power to maintain a clear image when looking at both near and distant objects. The ciliary muscle located in the eyeball has an important role in this process. 

 

  • Visual acuity

 

It refers to the ability of the eye to see two closely observed adjacent points separately, that is, to notice very close adjacent lines separately.

 

  • Contrast

 

In a subjective sense, contrast is the assessment of the difference in appearance of two areas of the visual field observed simultaneously or sequentially (apparent contrast). For example, a standard text consisting of black letters on a white background has a very high contrast.

 

  • Observation speed

 

Observation speed is the reciprocal of the time interval between the appearance of an object or contrast and its observation.

 

  • Deep vision

 

Deep vision is the ability to distinguish between objects at different distances. When viewing with both eyes, the sensitivity to differences in distance is very high, for example, a spacing of 0,4 mm can be perceived at the distance of 1 meter.
