Oculair Product Information
Oculair is a potent full-spectrum multiple vitamin/mineral/antioxidant dietary supplement that supports a healthy aging process. It's designed to support the micronutrient needs of the Generation X and older patient It reflect the most recent peer-reviewed nutrition science.Oculair is Made in the U.S.A in a NSF, GMP registered facility.
Oculair is a four-capsules-per-day formulation designed to support
the entire body including the eyes, from the damaging effects of age-related oxidative stress and free
radicals. Leading experts agree that
maintaining a consistent level of a well-designed combination of organ-specific
antioxidant free radical scavengers best supports healthy bodies and eyes.
A large number of thought-leading ophthalmologist and optometrists
recommend Oculair to their entire patient base, including their AMD
patients because this cost-effective full-spectrum formulation contains
all the nutrients used in the ARED study and the Lutein Antioxidant
Supplement Trial (LAST) at levels that are considered safe for long-term
consumption. Oculair includes 12 mg of OmniActive lutein and 3 mg of
natural zeaxanthin from peppers.
We recommend you scroll up and visit the Oculair Scientific Rationale link for more information. The Biosyntrx manufacturing link can be found at the bottom of every page.
Oculair can effectively be recommended as a less-potent 2-per-day formulation to the cost-conscious consumer, which still makes it a far more complete formulation than Centrum or Ocuvite at a similar price point.
If purchased individually, it would be necessary to take forty
capsules a day and to spend over $150.00 a month to equal the active
ingredient micronutrients included in four capsules of Oculair. The cost
of Oculair is less than one quarter this amount.
Recommended dosage: Four capsules per day.
Precautions: This formulation contains 200 IUs of natural Vitamin E from mixed tocopherols and may be contraindicated for patients with diagnosed retinitis pigmentosa.

Oculair Condition Overview
Unfortunately, too many people wait until they are well past middle age to start thinking about the role lifestyle choices, including nutritional intake plays in body and eye health. The Biosyntrx science team strongly recommends lifestyle evaluation between 40 and 45 years of age. This is the age when we are genetically designed to start noticing a few subtle changes that include needing longer arms to read, a few extra pounds, and a bit less energy.The good news: these wake-up calls will help us manage our aging process so that we hardly notice it happening for the next 30 or so years.
For those who are willing to make appropriate life changes to ensure health, a full and active life does not need to start slipping away at age fifty. Every year of your life should and can be your very best.
Cellular nutrition means providing the body with a complete and constant range of antioxidants, along with optimal levels (levels shown to provide health benefits in the peer-reviewed medical literature) of the supporting vitamins and minerals that work together synergistically and allow the cells to naturally determine which nutrients they need, minute by minute, to provide free radical defense support from the split-second cellular damage created by such things as environmental pollution, exercise, UV damage, medications, and the normal oxidative stress that is part of every day life.
An armed brigade of synergistic antioxidant special-forces is more
than capable of supporting and protecting our eyes and bodies, as well as providing
intracellular toxic clean up from previous years of free radical
assault, thus supporting full body health.
Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that ravage the innards of cells. Free radicals refers compounds that are misfits with no proper place in cellular society. Radical is the name biochemists give to an atom or molecule with an unpaired electron. Unattached free radicals bond indiscriminately with other molecules, stripping them of electrons with disastrous results, broken chromosomes, crippled enzymes, and punctured membranes. The electron-stripping process is called oxidation, and in controlled circumstances it's a vital part of ordinary cellular metabolism. In the mid-1950s, Denham Harman, a physician and chemist in the Donner Laboratory of medical physics at Berkeley, proposed that the cumulative damage wreaked by free radicals was largely responsible for the aging process. Today his free-radical theory is the most widely accepted model of aging.
Oculair ingredient rationale
A well designed full-spectrum multiple like Oculair supplement supports good health.
Vitamin A at 2,500 IU is from natural retinyl palmitate. Vitamin A is necessary for night vision, wound healing, and proper immune system function. Oculair Vitamin A does not exceed the Institute of Medicines' current recommendation for daily consumption. It is perfectly balanced with Vitamin D.
The B Complex of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, Folic Acid, Biotin and Choline are perfectly balanced. Oculair includes the Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) because it has proven to be almost as absorptive as the injectable type of vitamin B12. Oculair provides biochemically balanced amounts of folic acid, B6 and B12 to support proper homocysteine levels in the average person.
Vitamin C at 500 mg is a balanced combination of both water-soluble and fat-soluble active ingredient to ensure a constant supply of circulating vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate).
Vitamin D at 1,200 IU is necessary to properly balance Vitamin A and to support skeleton function / structure. There is literature that now suggests a possible approaching epidemic of vitamin D deficiency due to potent use of sun screen and decreased dairy consumption in the younger consumer, and lack of out-door activity in the older patient.
Vitamin E at 200 IU is a balanced combination of natural d-alpha tocopherol, andmixed tocopherols, including gamma-tocopherol.
Full-Spectrum Minerals are perfectly balanced to support proper bio-electrical responses at the cellular level. They include Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, Boron, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Vanadium, and Molybdenum, The zinc used in Oculair is chleated with monomethionine. The amino acid methionine is a low molecular weight, binding ligand proven to facilitate absorption and transport of zinc in the human body. This zinc is perfectly balanced with copper and manganese to support manganese super-oxide dismutase (MnSOD)
Carotenoids are a scientifically balanced mixture of beta and alpha carotenoids, 1 mg of lycopene, 12 mg of FloraGlo lutein plus 3 mg of natural zeaxanthin from peppers, which supports the macula. New science suggests that the central macula has a distinct preference for zeaxanthin.
Excessive amounts of hydrocarbon carotenoids like beta-carotene found in many other eye-care-specific supplement interfere with zanthophill absorption, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin. Excessive beta carotene is also linked to lung cancer and colorectal adenoma in persons who smoke, or did smoke, as well as those use alcohol.
Phytochemical Antioxidants (anthocyandins - grape seed, bilberry and ginkgo biloba), plus lipoic acid and NAC support antioxidant activity pn the entire body and the eyes.
Bioflavnoids, (hesperidin, quercetin, and rutin) and the amino acid, taurine, support the vascular system, which plays an important role in transporting proper nutrients to every organ in the body including the eye. These nutrients also play a major role in supporting optimal fluid balance in the eye.
Carnosine is included to support the prevention of cellular cross-linking.
Carnitine and Lipoic Acid are included to support the prevention of age-related memory loss and to support and increase cellular energy.
