SHOP SMART: Perhaps the most common question I am asked is: “How do we select the ingredients that go in our products?”  If I had to answer in one sentence, it would be: “We do our best to apply science to nature”.  The release of data from scientific studies regarding the ingredients used in dietary supplements has exploded over the past 10 years.  This data, coupled with input from doctors, and peer review literature help us determine the value of each ingredient in regards to the overall product formula. 

While it is understood that the results from these studies represent only those study participants, and cannot be expected for everyone, their value is considered. 

We are proponents of and encourage everyone to be an active participant in their health care.  The famous quote from Benjamin Franklin is just as, if not more applicable today as it was over 200 years ago… “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

As you, with guidance from your health care provider, decide on the vitamins and dietary supplements that would be beneficial for you, we hope that your selections include OneLifeUSA products. 

Your business is appreciated and your satisfaction is important to us.

Product Description:

Maintaining optimal visual health and keen eyesight requires adequate nutrition. Studies have shown that there are specific vitamins, minerals and natural compounds that are linked to eye health. That’s why OneLifeUSA’s Vision Guard has specifically selected ingredients.

Two of the most common eye issues that negatively affect vision are age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataract, and their incidence are growing. Worldwide, more than 25 million people are affected by age-related macular degeneration and the formation of cataracts. AMD is the leading cause of blindness in people over age 55 in the Western world and the incidence is expected to triple by 2025.

Vitamin C helps to promote healthy capillaries, gums, teeth, cartilage and the absorption of iron. Virtually all cells of the body depend on it, including those of the eye where it is actively concentrated in all tissues.  Vitamin C also supports the health of ocular blood vessels. Our bodies do not synthesize the vitamin C needed, which is the reason citrus fruits and juices are essential to good nutrition. Daily intake of vitamin C through diet, nutritional supplements, or fortified foods and beverages is important for the maintenance of good eye health. 

Studies indicate that vitamin E may help reduce the progression of AMD and cataract formation. Vitamin E also plays a significant role in the immune system, the health of cell membranes, in DNA repair, and in other metabolic processes. The human body does not synthesize the vitamin E it needs, which is the reason nuts, salad and vegetable oils are essential to good nutrition. Daily intake of vitamin E through diet, nutritional supplements, or fortified foods and beverages is important for the maintenance of good eye health.

Lutein (LOO-teen) and zeaxanthin are important nutrients found in green leafy vegetables as well as other foods such as eggs. Many studies have shown that lutein and zeaxanthin reduce the risk of chronic eye diseases, including AMD and cataracts. Most Western diets are low in lutein and zeaxanthin, which can be found in spinach, corn, broccoli and eggs.

Zinc is an essential trace mineral or "helper molecule." It plays a vital role in bringing vitamin A from the liver to the retina in order to produce melanin, a protective pigment in the eyes. Zinc is highly concentrated in the eye. Impaired vision has been linked to zinc deficiency. Daily intake of zinc through diet, nutritional supplements, or fortified foods and beverages is important for the maintenance of good eye health. The Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), sponsored by the National Eye Institute, was a landmark study that established AMD as a ‘nutrition-responsive disorder.’ The study showed that a 40-80 mg/day intake of zinc, taken with antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin E and vitamin C, slows the progression of advanced age-related macular degeneration by about 25 percent and visual acuity loss by 19 percent in individuals at high-risk for the disease. Higher levels of zinc may interfere with copper absorption, which is why the AREDS study also included a copper supplement. Anthocyanosides found in bilberry fruits may also be useful for people with vision problems.

If you are not getting enough of these important eye healthy nutrients through diet alone, consider speaking to your eye doctor about adding supplements to your daily routine.

Before taking this or any over-the-counter product, it is always advisable to discuss its use with your health care professional.

Dear OneLife,

Recently I saw a compelling TV commercial for an eye health vitamin that really got my attention! I’ve become more aware of my eyesight as it seems each year my glasses prescription gets stronger and stronger and at my last eye exam, my ophthalmologist told me I could look forward to cataract surgery. I won’t name the company specifically, but it is one I think of as my contact lens maker… not a vitamin maker. Anyway, I went online and looked at their product and their information. Again – all very convincing, then just as I was about to press the ‘buy’ button, I remembered you guys had a vision product. After comparing the labels, I was so pleased to see the ingredient similarities between their product and your Vision Guard. Of course, there was one big difference: the price! Your product was over 47% less expensive. Vision Guard is now a regular product on my monthly VIP shipments. Great ingredients and as usual – fabulous price!

Dear OneLife,

I recently went to my ophthalmologist for a check up. He discussed macular degeneration with me, probably because both my mother and father lost a great deal of their eyesight to that disease. He told me that it is essentially a preventable disease. He suggested I take a product with anti-oxidants and lutein in it, which he sold through his office. A months supply was $69.95 - not covered by insurance. I took the information and told him I'd think about it. He was upset with me that I would not take what he had recommended.

When I got home, I went to your website and where I remembered seeing an article on macular degeneration. That's where I came across your product, Vision Guard. When I compared the ingredients to what my doctor had suggested, I was amazed. Your Vision Guard had more vitamin C and more Lutein, you also had bilberry and his did not. Needless to say, with Vision Guard costing less than $15.00 per month as compared to his $69, I ordered Vision Guard immediately.

Last week I took my husband in for his eye exam and took a bottle of Vision Guard with me. I showed it to our doctor and asked his opinion. Let's just say he was speechless!
