Douglas Laboratories® Launches New Line of Vision Health Supplements
Three new products formulated to support healthy eye function introduced during May’s Vision Health Month
PITTSBURGH, Pa., May 12, 2015 – Healthy aging is a hot topic today, particularly as the Baby Boomer generation enters their 50s. While attention is frequently given to strong bones and maintaining cognitive health as people age, little consideration is given to vision health. Now, three new nutritional products from Douglas Laboratories® are available to support healthy eye function during the aging process, all utilizing the latest research.* This suite of ocular formulas includes Ultra Preventive® Vision, Macu-Support™, and Eye Moisture Support.
“Science continues to emerge regarding the role nutrition plays in eye health,” said Dr. Stuart Richer, O.D., Ph.D., F.A.A.O., and co-developer of the new suite of vision health products for Douglas Laboratories. “We’ve utilized the latest research to create three new nutritional supplements to support healthy eye function.”*
Ultra Preventive Vision is a comprehensive multivitamin/mineral formula with phytonutrients and carotenoids specially designed to help support a healthy macula, retina, and visual performance for all ages that are affected by excess blue-light exposure and free radical damage.*
Macu-Support supplies a well-balanced spectrum of key antioxidants that are important in maintaining normal retina and macula function in the eyes. As we age, the ability of the macula to function properly can decline. The nutrients found in Macu-Support have been studied for their ability to help maintain and support macular function and health.*
Eye Moisture Support is a unique dietary supplement featuring QÜELL Fish Oil®, organic borage seed oil, and astaxanthin, among other nutrients, for healthy production of tears and moisture in the eyes.”
“At Douglas Labs, we strive to offer a comprehensive line of nutritional supplements for healthy aging,” said Andrew Halpner Ph.D., Vice President, Product Development and Technical Services at Douglas Laboratories. “The ocular formulas that were co-developed with Dr. Richer are a great addition to our existing line of products to support vision health as we age.”*
