Twinlab, OcuGuard, 120 Capsules (Discontinued Item)
- Advanced Vitamin & Antioxidant Supplement for the Eyes
Each OcuGuard capsule contains pure, highly concentrated nutrients. Their contents are dry and stable (no polyunsaturated filler oils). And they are easier to swallow than rock hard tablets and dissolve faster (particularly important for older adults) to assure maximum absorption.
Also, tablets can contain up to 50% fillers, binders, coatings, colorings, artificial flavors, stabilizers and sweeteners. And they are often manufactured under tons of compression at relatively high temperatures which may destroy potency and nutritional value.
OcuGuard caps are an advanced vitamin and antioxidant nutritional supplement specifically formulated for the eyes.
Each easy-to-swallow OcuGuard capsule provides a special combination of micronutrients the eyes may require, including zinc from picolinate (a chelated form of zinc that is easy for the body to absorb and use), natural vitamin E, vitamin C, beta-carotene (pro-vitamin A), selenium and much more.
These are nutrients which many people may not get enough of in their regular diet alone. And which more and more scientific and medical research suggests contribute to proper ocular nutrition.
(Adults) As a dietary supplement, take two capsules twice daily (preferably with morning and evening meals), or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Gelatin, cellulose, purified water, MCT, croscarmellose sodium, calcium stearate, silica.
