Healthy Eye Function

Nutrition research shows that Enzogenol supports healthy eye function with age.*

The effects of Enzogenol on parameters of eye health were studied in a randomised controlled trial by Dr. Nigel Gilchrist of the Christchurch Geriatric Medical Research Trust at the Princess Margaret Hospital, Christchurch, New Zealand. In this trial, 60 participants from local rest-homes with an average age of 82 years were assigned to treatment and control groups. Enzogenol was found to be very well tolerated with no adverse reactions and normal laboratory measures of all safety related blood parameters. The results indicated that Enzogenol was associated with beneficial effects for eye function shown below.



Acuity of vision, a combined measure of near and distant vision declined five times faster in the control group compared to the Enzogenol group over the 6 months trial period. Distant vision improved significantly after 6 months of taking Enzogenol compared to controls. There were less people experiencing deterioration in eye sight, and more people with stable and better vision.*

These findings showed that taking Enzogenol supported healthy eye function.* In particular, this support was effective in a population of older people that commonly experience difficulties with their eye sight.*
