Sedona Labs Launches New High Dose Vitamin B and Antioxidant Eye Health Formula

Sedona Labs Launches New High Dose Vitamin B and Antioxidant Eye Health Formula

Sedona Labs Leads with Science-Based Supplements

Cottonwood, AZ (PRWEB) August 18, 2010

Sedona Labs, a leading dietary supplement company based in Northern Arizona’s red rock country, announces the launch of a unique vision health product, XanthaView™ Vision Formula.

The clinically based formula features specific dosages of B vitamins that help support healthy eye function, particularly in the central portion of the eye called the macula. One out of three Americans will experience significant deterioration of the macula as they age.

“We specialize in supplements based on the latest science,” says Donna Cappiello, National Sales Director for Sedona Labs. “We believe consumers look for new health formulas that are not a repeat of what’s out there. By adding clinically supported levels of B-vitamins to well-known eye antioxidants, Sedona Labs scientists have formulated XanthaView Vision Formula as one the most powerful, innovative eye health supplements on the market.”

Cappiello also points out that Sedona Labs uses only the highest quality B vitamins, sourced from Europe.

High-Dose B Vitamins Improve Central Eye Health by 41%

XanthaView is based on a groundbreaking, double-blind study by Harvard researchers. The study found that women taking high dosages of specific B vitamins over seven and a half years had 41% better long-term eye health – especially health of their central vision – than women who did not take the B-vitamins. 

The researchers believe that the B vitamins may work by reducing levels of homocysteine and by acting as an antioxidant.

“Improvement in central eye health from taking lutein, zeaxanthin and other antioxidants has been in the 20-30% range. Adding the B vitamins gives a dramatic boost to the health of the aging eye,” says Cappiello.

Targeted Eye Health with Lutein and Zeaxanthin

In addition to B vitamins, XanthaView includes clinically researched dosages of lutein, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin, vitamins C, E, zinc and copper. These ingredients are crucial to help support resistance to glare and eye strain.

These natural antioxidants also support eye health when the eyes are exposed to excess blue light, which may lead to higher levels of oxidation.

Blue light exposure occurs in bright sunshine, in bright fluorescent light, and in long hours in front of computer terminals. The EUREYE Study published in 2008 found that antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin specifically helped support macular eye health in older people exposed to high levels of sunlight.

Eye Health Means Greater Independence

Supporting healthy vision function is one of the most important things people can do to maintain independence as they get older. Why? People must see well in order to drive, and driving is the key to independence across the United States.
