Cooper Complete Eye Health Supplement has been formulated to provide key nutrients clinically proven to promote eye health.
Since our eyes are so metabolically active, proper nutrition is vital to help maintain proper vision. As we age, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and dry eyes become issues for many. Lutein is an antioxidant that may protect the macula tissue from destructive oxidation reactions by quenching free radicals. Lutein also filters high-energy blue light that can damage the macula and skin.
Since the 1990s research has shown that lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids found at high levels in kale and spinach, can help lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in adults over the age of 65. Now research is showing that these two nutrients, when delivered in the proper doses, can also improve the visual “performance” of athletes.
In virtually every sport the ability to “see” better, and faster, results in improved performance.
Consider in football the expectation for a quarterback to instantly determine whether to throw to one of three different receivers, dump a pass off to a running back, or tuck and run. Or for a receiver or defensive back, while running at full speed, to leap in traffic then locate the pass in bright sunshine or against glaring stadium lights, and then react to a tipped ball to make the catch.
Realize that a spike in volleyball can top 90 mph, a slap shot in hockey often exceeds 100 mph, and serves in tennis routinely reach 124 mph for women and 140 mph for men.
As it turns out, nutrition plays an incredible role in how the eyes of an athlete perform during competition.
A 2008 trial published in Optometry and Vision Science studied 40 healthy men and women with a mean age of 23.9 years. After four months of supplementation with 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin, glare recovery improved significantly. After six months, the subjects’ ability to tolerate glaring light improved 58 percent, and the time to recover sight following exposure to bright light (photostress) improved by 5 seconds or 14 percent.
We all have experienced how our eyes need time to adjust when going from a brightly lit lobby into a dark movie theater. This type of adjustment, albeit not as dramatic, is also happening constantly in competitive athletics. The difference is that in a movie theater there is rarely any pressure to instantly find a seat. In sports however, the faster, and more accurately you can make a decision, the better.
