The importance of Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are a special class of polyunsaturated fatty acids which are commonly found in plant seed oils, nut oils and oily fish such as sardines and salmon. A large number of scientific studies worldwide have highlighted the multiple benefits of dietary Omega-3 fatty acids in areas as diverse as heart, brain, and normal vision. The two most researched Omega-3 fatty acids are Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision1.

The Red Krill oil difference

Red Krill oil is a special source of Omega-3 with a high concentration of marine phospholipids, so may be better utilised in the body. The DHA in Visionace Max is derived from a special combination of both Omega-3 Fish oil and Red Krill oil; DHA is scientifically proven to help maintain normal vision1.

The role of DHA in the retina

Omega-3 fatty acids play an important structural and functional role in the retina, the part of the eye that detects light. DHA is a component of photoreceptor cells which are responsible for converting light into nerve signals. Photoreceptors contain the highest concentration of DHA of any cell in the body, with DHA accounting for over 50% of the total fatty acid content2 3. Adequate levels of DHA must be maintained for the retina to continue to function properly and to maintain normal vision)4 5.

The retinal cells are continually being renewed, so a constant supply of Omega-3 fatty acids and in particular DHA is required6 7. Since these cannot be made by the body a lack of these in the diet can have a direct effect on levels in the retina8. Fortunately increasing dietary intake can help to restore retinal Omega-3 levels9. Omega-3 fatty acids are now being recognised as being essential for normal eye health from before birth continuing into old age10.

Lutein Esters

Lutein makes up the dominant pigment in the retina which absorbs visible blue light. Visionace Max provides a combined total of 34mg of Lutein Esters.

omega 3

Zeaxanthin

Zeaxanthin is a structural component of the macular which is the central area of the retina, containing the highest density of photoreceptors.

Zeaxanthin cannot be made in the body, so must come from dietary sources, such as eggs, broccoli and spinach, as well as spirulina which can be added to smoothies.

Protection of cells

The photoreceptors in the retina are particularly vulnerable to the effects of UV rays in sunlight which can result in cellular damage11 12. Because of this, sunglasses with a high Eye-Sun Protection Factor (E-SPF) are always recommended to reduce the exposure of the eye to excessive light and harmful UV rays.

Visionace Max provides vitamins C and E, plus zinc and selenium which contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Quality and Purity Guaranteed

Only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil which has been produced in Norway, is used in Visionace Max. To ensure maximum benefit, the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified, and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants. The Red Krill oil found in Visionace Max is sourced in the Antarctic using Aker BioMarine Eco-Harvesting technology to help restrict environmental impact and ensure the highest standards of quality.

General health and wellbeing

Visionace Max is a comprehensive formula that replaces other multivitamin supplements. The formula includes folic acid plus vitamins B12 and B2 which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, as well as iron which supports normal oxygen transport in the body and has a role in the process of cell division.

Top

When is Visionace Max recommended?

Visionace Max is recommended for those who wish to support the maintenance of their normal vision. It is ideal for contact lens wearers, or those working long hours at a computer screen. Top

How pure is the fish oil in Visionace Max?

Only the purest pharmaceutical grade fish oil produced in Norway has been used in Visionace Max capsules. To ensure maximum benefit the oil is carefully concentrated to increase its DHA and EPA content and further purified. Each batch is rigorously tested, certified and fully compliant with stringent EC and WHO rules on environmental pollutants. Top

How pure is Ultra Red Krill Oil?

Harvested in some of the world's cleanest waters, Krill oil is pollutant free with the naturally occurring Astaxanthin giving the oil a deep red colour. The presence of Astaxanthin also helps to keep the Krill oil stable without the need of additives, protecting the beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids from becoming rancid due to oxidisation. Ultra Red Krill is 100% pure and unlike some Krill oils is not blended with ordinary fish oil. Top

Can Visionace Max help with conditions such as Glaucoma and 'Floaters'?

No. Visionace Max is a food supplement formulated with specific nutrients to help contribute to the maintenance of normal vision. It will have no direct benefit on conditions such as glaucoma and floaters. Specific nutrients in the formula such as vitamin C and E plus, copper, manganese, selenium and zinc contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Top

Can Visionace Max be used simultaneously with medications?

Generally, Visionace Max may be used alongside medication, as it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals and is free from drugs or hormones. For specific advice on taking Visionace Max with medicines, please contact your doctor or pharmacist. Top

Will Visionace Max have any effect on lens prescriptions required in long and short sightedness and astigmatism?

No, Visionace Max will not have any effect. Top

How many tablets and capsules does one pack of Visionace Max contain?

Visionace Max contains 28 multivitamin tablets and 28 Omega-3 capsules. Take one tablet and one capsule per day. Top

How and when should Visionace Max be used?

One multivitamin tablet and one Omega-3 capsule per day is recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink. Taking the dose with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients and can reduce nausea, which is sometimes experienced if multivitamins are taken on an empty stomach. Visionace Max should only be taken on a full stomach. Always ensure that Visionace Max is taken with plenty of cold liquid, not tea or coffee, as this may cause the tablet and capsule to disintegrate too early. Top

Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Visionace Max?

Visionace Max has no known side-effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended tablet/capsule intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately. Top

What are the active ingredients?

Please see nutritional information click here Top

Is Visionace Max suitable for vegetarians?

No Visionace Max is not suitable for vegetarians as it contains fish oil in a pharmaceutical grade gelatine (bovine or beef) capsule. Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Visionace Max contains fish oil as it provides a much more reliable, direct source of DHA and EPA. Top

How long does it take to experience any benefit?

Results vary amongst individuals but in most cases, we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins and minerals in Visionace Max to build over several weeks, with noticeable results in one to three months. There is no maximum length of time over which Visionace Max may be used, however, a regular intake is recommended. Top

Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease. The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help. Top

Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?

Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.

The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.

All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.

Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.

"The Visionace Plus really do help, brilliant product.""

Mr Mike Hartley, United Kingdom

"After 2 months use of the Visionace tablets the eye specialist noted improvement. Highly recommended product."

Mr A Odimayo, United Kingdom

"A local doctor recommended Visionace for my eye health. i feel so happy now and personally thank Vitabiotics and recommend the product to others"

Mr M N, Pakistan

"I’m a natural cynic so I don’t know what I was expecting when I purchased Visionace in June! My eyesight felt worse when I was tired. After taking Visionace for a month, I turned around to my wife and said “look at the colours in the garden-they’re really vivid!”. My wife looked at me as though I’d been drinking! But the colours seemed really ‘rich’ in a way I’d not noticed before. Also, my night sight was struggling me- all the colours fused into a fog (without specs). I’ve now noticed that detail is better at night. I can see individual house bricks from a distance, whereas before it was just a wall. From a cosmetic perspective, I’ve never had such healthy looking ‘whites’ of my eyes. I’m a hardened cynic believe me, but your product works!!!"

Mr Michael Rowley, United Kingdom

"Recently visiting the UK I took these tablets that I had never heard of before - they were wonderful. Am ordering some from down under!"

Miss Kristen Manning, Australia
