Antioxidants For Your Heart, And Your Eyes!

We often associate antioxidants as being important for heart health, but these compounds are really important for your eyes, too. In fact, the eye is the most susceptible organ to oxidative damage. UV light is one culprit. As ultraviolet and blue light passes through the retina to the photoreceptors (rods and cones), reactive oxygen species (ROS) that are free radicals are generated. Toxins from smoke and other pollutants, and even atmospheric oxygen, are also culprits. Over time, the eye suffers excessive oxidative damage because there are insufficient antioxidants available to neutralize free radicals, the eye undergoes excessive oxidative damage. By the time you reach age 60, significant damage is noticeable, with conditions like cataracts, macular degeneration and other vision and eye problems.

In short, the eyes need antioxidants, which is why we developed our 20/20 nutritional product. It has a specific blend of antioxidants, along with botanicals, nutrients and minerals, all shown in research to support healthy eye function. The formula provides potent antioxidant support as well as key nutrients to care for and maintain the long-term health of the eyes:

  • Vitamin A is a group of antioxidant compounds that play an important role in vision by helping the surface of the eye, mucous membranes, and skin to be effective barriers from bacteria and viruses, reducing the risk of eye infections. Vitamin A also helps bone growth and immune system health, fighting respiratory problems and other infectious diseases.
  • Vitamin C  is an antioxidant associated with a significantly reduced risk of cataracts.
  • Vitamin E supplements are associated with a reduced risk of age-related cataracts.
  • N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a precursor to the powerful antioxidant glutathione and plays a role in reducing oxidative stress in the cornea. 
  • Quercetin is a prominent dietary antioxidant used in age-related macular degeneration to improve cell membrane integrity and reduce inflammation.
  • Lutein and Zeaxanthin are antioxidants that protect the retina from damage caused by sunlight and are correlated with a decreased risk of age-related macular degeneration. 

These are just a few of the antioxidants found in my 20/20 formula. They’re backed by research, too. In the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) involving nearly 5,000 people, researchers found a 25 percent lower risk of developing advanced stages of macular degeneration with intake of 400 IU of vitamin E as well as high levels of vitamins A and C. It is my trusted, go-to formula for eye health which is why it is also one of my private label supplements.

08-09-21 Deep Dive PREMIUM – with Jamie Walden

Meet Jamie Walden, of Omega Dynamics. Imbued with matchless passion for all things “adventurous” and “fun”, Jamie’s teen years were filled with significant tumult (injuries, arrests, and choices of near life-long consequence). However, amid the rebellion and ruckus, Jamie continually endeavored to one day earn the title, “U.S. Marine”. After being nominated to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Defense, Intelligence, and Diplomacy in Washington, D.C., where he subsequently secured a nomination to the US Naval Academy, Jamie made the determination to simply enlist in the Marine Corps Infantry and achieve his childhood dream.

After leaving the Marines Corps, Jamie obtained a double major B.S. in Law Enforcement and History. Pursuing a career in Federal Law Enforcement, Jamie was selected as an Intern for the United States Marshals Service, and subsequent recruitment to a “Three Letter” agency. It was then, when Jamie received “the call”, that the Lord began testing and affirming the genuineness of his faith.

After again returning to Iraq in 2014 to serve the Christians suffering under the savage campaign of ISIS, Jamie and his wife Virginia were compelled to surrender their paradigm and follow the Lord into full-time ministry.

“The Mission of Omega Dynamics is this: to teach, train and equip “Those with ears to hear” to stand anew in their rightful place as more than conquerors in a kingdom that cannot be shaken…this generation is literally, eternally dying for us to”
