Product Overview

Retinex® contains the powerful ingredient Lutein, a natural carotenoid that is found in many fruits and vegetables as well as in the eye, where it is partly converted into zeaxanthin. Each Healthspan Retinex tablet contains 10mg of natural Lutein and 1,000mcg of Zeaxanthin.

In the eye, Lutein is deposited mainly in the lens and in the central retina (the macula) where it is partly converted into Zeaxanthin.

Our experts recommend upgrading to OptiVision®, which contains 12mg Lutein along with 280mg DHA and 40mg EPA, 2,400mcg zeaxanthin plus vitamin B2 to support the maintenance of normal vision.

I don't know if Retinex is actually doing anything for me, I just know that I don't like the idea of getting Macular Degeneration and I'll do what I can to avoid Eye Injections or Laser Surgery. ^_^; I am a little surprised that Retinex isn't that much cheaper (At the equivalent strength) than Holland & Barrett's Lutigold Extra though.
