Vision Essence, a company based in Mississauga, brings us Early Defence eye health vitamin supplement. Its triple carotenoid macular pigment formula is indicated for early AMD, diabetic eyes, and those patients not suitable for the AREDS2 formulation. It has several positive outcomes: increases macular pigment density to improve and protect eyesight at the earliest signs of maculopathy; reduces the vascular permeability in diabetic patients and helps maintain visual performance in healthy eyes. The components are isolated from marigold flowers using a clean, environmentally friendly, solvent-free process, with super-critical CO2 extraction, micro-encapsulated carotenoid ‘beadlets’ provide stability and bio-availability for a fresh product that’s easily absorbed. One vegan-friendly capsule daily is all that is needed. One bottle is a 90 day supply.
