Right   Ingredients

   Fortifeye FOCUS    is a combination of three carotenoids – astaxanthin,  lutein and zeaxanthin.
Astaxanthin – A relatively new nutrient used in supplements that comes from microalga Haematococcus pluvialis, astaxanthin is proving to have multiple health benefits. The carotenoid astaxanthin is the reason lobsters, shrimp and some crabs turn red when cooked. While it constitutes a tiny portion of farm-raised salmon feed (50 to 100 parts per million), astaxanthin represents up to 20 percent of the cost. Astaxanthin is an extremely potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Clinical studies have now proven that 6mg of astaxanthin can improve the blood flow to the eye and actually aid in accommodation (focusing) and in reducing eye fatigue. Astaxanthin reduces inflammatory markers such as C reactive protein (CRP),  nitric oxide synthase (NOS), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF). Astaxanthin is documented with high potencies for neutralizing oxygen radicals. For example, it is 550 times more powerful than vitamin E or 40 times more powerful than beta-carotene against singlet oxygen radicals. These remarkable aspects of astaxanthin are why Fortifeye Vitamins has incorporated it into their new eye vitamin formulas.  Fortifeye Vitamins and The Lange Eye Institute are involved in some ongoing clinical  blood studies to look more carefully at the anti inflammatory properties of astaxanthin.  Studies also indicate that astaxanthin may  help in muscle recovery and  reduce muscle fatigue.  Many marathon runners claim to have improved performance and less post run muscle stress if they have been taking fortifeye focus for months prior ot the event.  Many patients that have been taking supplemental astaxanthin have also noticed the sun block properties this powerful antioxidant exhibits.  Astaxanthin has also been linked to healthier skin and less fine lines and wrinkles have been documented after taking astaxanthin for a few months. Astaxanthin has also been associated with reduction in cholesterol and may improve blood flow to the choroid.    Astaxanthin in a truly unique nutrient with some incredible health benefits.
Lutein – A carotenoid found naturally  in dark green leafy vegetables (spinach and kale) and  other natural sources, this potent antioxidant is sorely    lacking in the typical American diet. Lutein and zeaxanthin  are the only carotenoids found in the retina of the  eye. Lutein supplementation has been shown in landmark   clinical studies to increase macular pigment density  which may promote macular health. Scientists believe    lutein helps filter out dangerous ‘blue’ light, helping to maintain the photoreceptor and retinal health. Lutein   is now believed to have a protective effect on the retina  and may help to slow down age related macular degeneration.     Lutein may have some protective effects against cataract   formation.†
Zeaxanthin – Zeaxanthin is one of the  two carotenoids contained within the retina of the eye.    Zeaxanthin and lutein have an almost identical chemical   structure and have similar properties. Zeaxanthin,  like   lutein, increases macular pigment density and also helps to filter out the harmful blue light from the sun. Gogi   berries have one of the highest sources of zeaxanthin   and orange bell peppers are relatively high in zeaxanthin   and more readily available. Zeaxanthin may also have   some protective effects on cataract formation. Zeaxanthin   may inhibit VEGF and prove useful for diabetic retinopathy  and wet macular degeneration. Zeaxanthin and its related   compound lutein are highly concentrated in the macula,  providing a yellow color known as the macular pigment  (MP). The macular pigment acts like a built in sun screen   and protects the macula from the damaging photo-oxidative   effects of blue light.†
Dr. Michael Lange Optometrist and certified nutrition specialist has chosen AstaREAL® astaxanthin – The Astaxanthin    of Choice. AstaREAL® astaxanthin is manufactured    by Fuji Chemical Industry from Haematococcus pluvialis  microalgae and is cultivated in ultra-clean BioDome™    systems in pristine Maui, Hawaii and in state-of-the-art   photobioreactors in environmentally friendly Gustavsberg,  Sweden. AstaREAL® astaxanthin products are guaranteed  for high potency, quality and stability. Fuji’s enclosed   mass-culture systems generate the highest quality, purity    and consistency of astaxanthin in the world.
  Fortifeye FOCUS   can be used alone or in combination with any of the   Fortifeye Vitamins.

Eye vitamins developed by Fortifeye Vitamins

Fortifeye® Vitamin Difference

Fortifeye family of products

Fortifeye family of products

Fortifeye Complete Plus is a synergistic blend of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, whole foods, enzymes and omega three oils. This formula is all natural without the use of any dyes. These are nutraceuticals developed to aid in total body wellness and vision support. Fortifeye Complete Plus is a combination multi vitamin, eye vitamin, super fruit / vegetable extract and Super Concentrated Omega-3 fish oil in Fortifeye Complete Plus one convenient package that is taken daily (2 caplets and 1 gel cap). This unique formula is based on the latest science and is currently being used by thousands of patients throughout the world. Fortifeye Complete Plus has evolved to its current nutrient profile after seven years of research and ten reformulations. This final formula was reached after years of clinical use with patients in Lange Eye Care Centers combined with serum and intracellular blood testing and retesting. Some newly researched nutrients like resveratrol from red wine, Polyphenols from green tea, and curcumin from the turmeric root have been added to this formula. These nutrients are powerful antioxidants that may also help inhibit the formation of “bad” blood vessels (anti-VEGF). Some other specific nutrients that Fortifeye is using that may also exhibit effects on VEGF are Vitamin D, Zeaxanthin isomers, tocotrienols, super berries and even B vitamins. This may prove to be helpful in macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, other inflammatory eye diseases and cataracts. Many studies now suggest that increasing intake of dark green leafy vegetables and darkly pigmented berries may also benefit macular degeneration and overall health. Kale, Spinach and Blueberries along with Billberries and Grape seed extract have also been included in the Complete Plus formula, Lutein and Zeaxanthin isomers are in this formula to help replenish the macula pigment density , filter out the dangerous blue light and also act as a powerful antioxidant to neutralize free radicals. Current science indicates that macula density progressively decreases as macular degeneration progresses. Lutein/ zeaxanthin isomers are proving to be beneficial for both macular degeneration and cataracts. The total antioxidant value (ORAC value)of Fortifeye Complete Plus is very high . This is equivalent to approximately 12 servings of Fruits and vegetables a day. Super Foods like Green Tea, Gogi, Acai, Mangosteen, Pomegranate, Cinnamon and Cocoa were blended to increase the ORAC to these levels. Acetyl l-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid and COQ-10 were added to support mitochondria health and aid in neuro protection. The Omega three fish oil is the purest molecullarly distilled and purified triglyceride based fish oil available. All eight forms of vitamin E (four tocopherols and four tocotrienols) are utilized in this formula to maximize free radical quenching. Additional tocotrienols were added for their enormous health benefits. The most absorbable form of Zinc called Opti Zinc is used to increase bio availability. Higher than normal levels of Vitamin D3 have been added do to the vast overall health benefits associated with this potent steroid hormone. Vitamin A deficiencies are very rare in developed countries and too much Vitamin A poses some serious health risks so no vitamin A is found in Fortifeye Complete Plus. Beta carotene has been linked to lung cancer in smokers and studies now indicate that beta carotene may block the absorption of Lutein so no beta-carotene is in any of the Fortifeye products. Many other nutrients are used in this comprehensive formula in precise ratios to aid in maximum cellular absorption. Fortifeye Complete Plus can be used alone or in combination with Fortifeye Super Omega, Fortifeye Dry Eye Therapy Extreme, or Fortifeye Focus to combat against free radical damage in the eyes and body. When Fortifeye Vitamins are combined with life style changes and dietary modifications significant improvements in the health of the eyes and body can be a result. Fortifeye Complete Plus is recommended to anyone wanting to be pro-active in their future health.

Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense is the same exact formula as the Fortifeye Complete Plus but it is about 33% stronger (3 caplets and 1 gel cap). Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense has higher levels of the specific nutrients that have been studied extensively by Fortifeye. 33% higher levels of all the nutrients listed in the above Fortifeye Complete Plus have been added to the Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense. The ORAC value of this formula is 33% higher than Complete Plus making it one of the strongest antioxidants available, being equivalent to about 17 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. This formula was developed initially for the macular degeneration patient but is now being used extensively throughout the world for extreme athletes, smokers, heavy drinkers, patients on medications that can block antioxidant uptake and macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy patients. The Complete Macular Defense was developed to aid patients that are in need of higher dosages of specific time tested nutrients. These vitamins should be taken in two divided dosages with food to maximize the absorption. Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense can be taken alone or with Fortifeye Super Omega, Fortifeye Dry Eye Extreme or Fortifeye Focus. Fortifeye Vitamin formulas have helped many patients to maintain their independence and in certain cases regain their independence thru better vision and/or better health. Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense gives hope thru nutrition.

Fortifeye Complete One-per-Day is one of the most potent one-a-day multivitamins on the market. After six years of research and development Fortifeye has released their newest multivitamin supplement called Fortifeye One-Per-Day Multivitamin. This is a nutraceutical (vitamin and mineral) formula taken once a day that has an ORAC value of ten times that of the typical multivitamin or eye vitamin. This is equivalent in antioxidant power to approximately five or six servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Fortifeye’s goal was to develop a multivitamin that was made to support total body and vision health that was convenient, affordable and based on the latest research. Fortifeye One-Per-Day Multivitamin is all natural without any synthetic nutrients, dyes, trans fats or artificial sweeteners. Fortifeye One-Per-Day Multivitamin is great for anyone that wants to insure that they are getting enough antioxidants during the day to combat against free radical damage and aid in the total health of their body and eyes. Fortifeye has taken a powerhouse combination of 50 total body and vision specific nutrients and combined them all into one USP certified tablet. Fortifeye One-Per-Day Multivitamin has been created by doctors who understand that quality counts. If you are lookikng for an eye vitamin that acts as your multivitamin too then consider Fortifeye One-per-day.

Fortifeye Super Omega was developed after years of careful research and use of all types of omega three essential fatty acids clinically. Fortifeye decided to utilize a more natural triglyceride based fish oil instead of ethel ester fish oil for this new product. Fortifeye Super Omega is a super highly purified and concentrated omega-3 fish oil in a lemon flavor. The triglyceride form allows for superior absorption without any fishy aftertaste. This new Super Omega meets or exceeds GMP quality standards and is produced in Norway in the worlds only NSF, GMP, pharmaceutically certified Omega 3 production facility. This product is triple molecularly distilled and then tested to ensure it is free of all pollutants. Every batch is tested independently by a third party for over 250 environmental contaminants. Fortifeye Super Omega contains 1600 mgs of Triglyceride based omega three fatty acids broken down into 860 EPA and 580 DHA making it one of the most concentrated omega three supplements on the market in a two per day dosing. Fortifeye Super Omega promotes overall wellness in the body and eyes and can be used in conjunction with Fortifeye Complete Plus, Fortifeye Complete Macular Defense, Fortifeye One-Per-Day Multivitamin or Fortifeye Focus. Fortifeye Super Omega tastes great as a chewable softgel or can be swallowed without any after taste. Fortifeye super omega is involved in an ongoing study testing its ability to increase omega index to levels that are healthy.  The study has revealed that 98 % of the patiets taking two super omega gel caps a day will maintain an omega index over 9%.  According to some resent research and omega index greater than 8 % correlates with a 90% risk reduction in a fatal heart attack. Fortifeye Super Omega is being used by 1000s of doctors and patients world wide.

Fortifeye Focus is the newest addiiton to the Fortifeye line of vitamins. Fortifeye Focus is a combination of three carotenoids; Astaxanthin, Lutein and Zeaxanthin. This  new formulation was developed to help reduce accomadative stress do to prolonged near work.
