The Lipotriad eye vitamin and mineral supplement has been helping to maintain eye health and prevent Macular Degeneration for over 50 years. Lipotriad was first introduced in 1953 and was the first multi vitamin supplement marketed in the United States to contain Lutein, a carotenoid that is concentrated in the macular segment of the retina. Today, Lipotriad continues to carry it's original formula as well as it's brand new highly anticipated Visionary formula. Visionary is based on the most recent research done by the US-NIH, and contains 10mg of lutein, 2.5mg of zeaxanthin, and 250 mg of fish oil, all in only one dosage per day!
The goal of our Lipotriad vitamins is simple:
To provide consumers with an option for how to prevent macular degeneration, slow the progression of those already suffering from AMD, and help all of our consumers maintain their eye health so they can see clear in the future!
Lipotriad Visionary contains 5 key active ingredients that the National Institute of Health, through its Age Related Disease Study (AREDS2), has found to be important in maintaining eye health: Vitamins C and E, Lutein, and the minerals zinc and copper.
Lutein (as an antioxidant) has been shown to significantly improve eye health by reducing the risk of advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and its associated vision loss.
However, Lutein is not produced by the human body, and so its accumulation in the eye is dependent on dietary intake, such as daily doses of the Lipotriad vitamin. Zinc is an important mineral found in high concentrations in healthy eyes. Lipotriad has zinc in its formula to assist in keeping the eye healthy. Additionally, the National Institute of Health, through the Age Related Disease Study, indicated that the antioxidant vitamins C, E and A are also helpful to maintaining eye health. Lipotriad has these key ingredients in its formulation.
As we age, the macula degenerates. Macular Degeneration is a hereditary and progressive eye disease that is found in people over the age of 50. In fact, Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 50. Moreover, one person in six between the ages of 55 and 64 will get macular degeneration; one person in four between the ages of 65 and 74 will get macular degeneration, and one in three people over the age of 75 will get macular degeneration. Recent research also indicates that Lutein and Zeaxanthin can potentially help prevent cataracts. Researchers analyzed dietary information from almost 36,000 women in the Women’s Health Study. Those women who took Lutein and Zeaxanthin were 18% less likely to develop cataracts than those who did not. Lipotriad Visionary has both these ingredients in its formulation, and strives to always have the most up to date formulations that our backed by goverment research.
