Oculair Product Information

Oculair is a potent full-spectrum multiple vitamin/mineral/antioxidant dietary supplement that supports the normal aging process. It is 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 GMP registered facility. 

Oculair is a four capsules-per-day formulation designed to protect the entire body including the eyes, from the damaging effects of age-related oxidative stress and free radicals, which are suggested to be responsible for the progression of all chronic degenerative diseases. Leading experts agree that maintaining a consistent level of a well-designed  combination of organ-specific antioxidant free radical scavengers best protects our bodies and eyes and slows the aging process symptoms. 

Oculair contains efficacious amounts of the full-spectrum of nutrients suggested to neutralize singlet oxygen and super oxide free radicals that damage the vascular system and the macula.

Oculair addresses the universal need to keep homocysteine levels in check by including efficacious amounts of vitamin B6, B12 and Folic Acid.

A large number of thought-leading ophthalmologist and optometris 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 FloraGlo lutein and 3 mg of natural zeaxanthin from peppers. Recent science suggests that the central macula may have a preference for zeaxanthin over lutein. Oculair is safe for smokers and former smokers. The Vitamin A included in Oculair is natural retinyl palmitate.  Oculair includes no beta carotene, which insures better lutein and zeaxanthin absorption. 

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: For full 4-per-day recommended potency, take 2 capsules with each morning and evening meal.

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 slowing down the aging process. 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.

Life expectancy has increased, but quality of life in those extra years is proving to be dismal for most people. We die too-slow deaths from chronic degenerative processes, like stroke, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, arthritis, macular degeneration and the list goes on and on.

Who looks forward to extra years of suffering from diseases that could be prevented by simply not smoking, limiting alcohol, limiting sun exposure, eating properly, exercising mind and body consistently, and taking a twice-daily high-quality nutritional supplement? 


The goal is to live and be healthy until we die.

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.

The science team at Biosyntrx has reviewed thousands of medical and scientific studies on nutrients and their effect on health. These peer-reviewed studies appear in JAMA, New England Journal of Medicine, Annals of Internal Medicine, Lancet, Review of Ophthalmology, IOVS and many other prestigious medical journals, which consistently report that oxidative stress from free radical damage is beyond any doubt the root cause of most chronic degenerative diseases.

Our problems then, are not simply individual nutrient deficiencies, but rather, underlying oxidative stress from free radical damage, which can be eliminated using one's natural defenses through full-spectrum cellular nutrition.

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 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 protecting our eyes and bodies, as well as providing intracellular toxic clean up from previous years of free radical assault, thus drastically slowing the progression of most chronic degenerative diseases.

Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that ravage the innards of cells. Free refers to the fact that these compounds 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 Scientific Rationale

A number of studies have been published in recent peer reviewed journals suggesting those people who take a well formulated daily multiple vitamin/mineral/antioxidant supplement are far healthier than those people who do not take multiples. Individual nutrient supplements need to be balanced with the appropriate spectrum of vitamins and minerals. A well designed full-spectrum supplement can slow the progression of most all chronic degenerative diseases, including those of the eye.(1-10)

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. (11 -12) Three published studies now link excessive amounts of Vitamin A as retinol to hip fracture in older people. Oculair Vitamin A does not exceed the Institute of Medicines' current recommendation for daily consumption. It is perfectly balanced with Vitamin D.(13-15)

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 maintain proper homocysteine levels in the average person. (16-21)

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). The fat-soluble C esters constantly regenerate other antioxidant vitamins at the cellular level. (22-23)

Vitamin D at 1,200 IU is necessary to properly balance Vitamin A and to prevent bone loss. 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.(24-27)

Vitamin E at 200 IU is a balanced combination of antioxidant natural d-alpha tocopherol, and anti-inflammatory mixed tocopherols, including anti-inflammatory gamma-tocopherol. (28)

Full-Spectrum Minerals are perfectly balanced to provide proper bio-electrical responses at the cellular level. This is a major issue for proper enzymatic function in the human body. 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 produce manganese super-oxide dismutase (MnSOD), which is necessary to neutralize singlet oxygen and super oxide free radicals. (29-34)

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 strengthen the macula and help prevent certain types of cancers. 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. (35-40)

Phytochemical Antioxidants (anthocyandins - grape seed, bilberry and ginkgo biloba), plus lipoic acid and NAC provide potent antioxidant protection from free radical damage in the entire body and the eyes. (41-44)

Bioflavnoids, (hesperidin, quercetin, and rutin) and the amino acid, taurine, strengthen 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 maintaining fluid balance in the eye. (45-50)

Carnosine is included to slow the progression of cellular cross-linking which causes cataracts. (51)

Carnitine and Lipoic Acid are included to slow the progression of memory loss and to boost cellular energy. (52)
