Dr. Mercola, Premium Supplements, Eye Support, with Lutein, 30 Capsules

Expiration Date: Sep 2015
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

When it comes to your eyes, you absolutely want to do everything you can to help support your health.
That’s why Eye Support is formulated with some of the most powerful ingredients out there for supporting your eye health—lutein, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin, bilberry, and black currant.
Lutein is a naturally occurring carotenoid. Lutein is used by your body as an antioxidant, and by your eyes for blue light absorption. It’s a powerful antioxidant, able to fight free radicals and protect cells from oxidative damage.
Zeaxanthin is the strongest antioxidant carotenoid found in your retina. Once transported to your eye, zeaxanthin relocates into several tissues, including your lens and your macula, to support their daily tasks.
Naturally occurring astaxanthin in can offer powerful antioxidant protection for your eyes. And this is important, since if you’re like most people, your diet likely lacks sufficient amounts of astaxanthin.
Eye Support includes 50 mg of anthocyanins produced from high quality black currant – the same statistically significant dosage used in a key study on black currant and visual fatigue -- to help ensure you get the benefits you deserve.
With the combination of lutein, zeaxanthin, bilberry – along with black currant and astaxanthin – Eye Support includes what I consider to be the best and most important ingredients known for eye health today.
My painstaking research takes all the guesswork out of finding a supplement that supports your eyes now and into the future

iHerb Customer Reviews
This is one of the few supplements where I notice a difference the same day I take them. When my eyes hurt, I take a couple of capsules and - voila! - eyes are better.
I didn't notice any difference after consuming 2 bottles. However, it got some really good ingredients such as lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin, and has no magnesium stearate. I find Source Naturals, Zeaxanthin with Lutein is slightly better in improving my vision, but it has no astaxanthin and contains magnesium stearate. I will continue to take Dr. Mercola's Eye Support for maintenance purpose.
