SEESTEAD® is an advanced nutritional formula that helps reduce strain on eyes, boosts vision, keeps eyes healthy, and protects them from the harmful effects of blue light and UV light.
The extensive use of digital screens nowadays- be it computers, laptops, mobile phones, or e-readers- is causing several eye problems among people. Amid the pandemic, online work for office goers and virtual classes for students have only exacerbated digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome. Many individuals experience eye discomfort and vision problems when viewing digital screens for extended periods. SEESTEAD®is a potent solution to counter these difficulties.
The formula contains Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Bilberry Extract, Beetroot Extract, Grape Seed Extract, N-Acetyl D- Glucosamine, Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Selenium, and Taurine. All these ingredients work synergistically towards maintaining eye health.
The blend of powerful ingredients in SEESTEAD® provides powerful antioxidants that help protect the eyes from damage by free radicals produced by constant exposure to oxygen and light.
Every ingredient added in SEESTEAD® comes with promising health benefits.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin: Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids (plant pigments) with anti-inflammatory properties. They are the only dietary carotenoids concentrated in the eye lens and retina and are also known as macular pigments. They are rich in antioxidants and have the potential to absorb incoming blue light.
Bilberry Extract: It is rich in potent antioxidants that protect the retina and improve visual function.
Grape Seed Extract: It is derived from the crushed seeds of grapes. These are a valuable source of antioxidants and also have antimicrobial properties. Grape seed extract delays cataract formation and progression that improves visual acuity, reduces swelling caused by injury, and helps with eye disease related to diabetes.
Beetroot Extract: Beetroots are an excellent source of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They also contain bioactive compounds called Betalains that help in fighting oxidative stress. Beetroot can help reduce the risk of early-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD)- a disease that causes vision loss.
Vitamin B1: Studies have shown that Vitamin B1 supplementation can reduce cataract development, and it may also possibly reduce the development of diabetic retinopathy, an eye condition that occurs in people with diabetes that can cause blindness.
Vitamin B2: Vitamin B2 is needed to protect glutathione, a vital antioxidant for the eye.
Vitamin B3: Research suggests that Vitamin B3 plays a role in protecting retinal cells from damage that causes blindness and glaucoma.
Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 plays a role in preventing age-related macular degeneration- a disease that commonly affects older adults.
Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 deficiency damages the optic nerve which can disrupt the nervous signal that travels from the eye to the brain, impairing vision. Thus, it is a must to include vitamin B12 as a supplement for healthy eyes.
Vitamin C: It is a rich source of antioxidants that lowers the risk of developing cataracts. Moreover, when Vitamin C is combined with other nutrients, it slows the progression of age-related macular degeneration, visual acuity loss, and also supports the health of blood vessels in the eyes.
N-Acetyl D-Glucosamine: It is a natural sugar found in the body that helps create hyaluronic acid, which helps to lubricate and moisturise the eyes.
Taurine: It is the most plentiful amino acid in the retina and helps protect against retinal degeneration. Studies show that reduced amounts of taurine may play a role in eye disorders such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
Selenium: Selenium is an essential trace element that protects against the development of cataracts, and macula degeneration.
Health Benefits of SEESTEAD®:
Prevents Damage to Eyes From Blue Light: The retina is particularly vulnerable to the blue light emitted from screens of mobile phones, tablets, laptops, etc. Lutein and zeaxanthin, also popularly known as ‘eye vitamins’, are clinically proven to protect the eyes against damage by harmful blue light. Additionally, they help reduce eye strain and fight against retinal macular degeneration, blurry vision, or cataracts.
Reduces Eye Strain and Fatigue: Nutrients like Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, lutein, and zeaxanthin help reduce eye fatigue after prolonged screen time.
Supports Healthy Eyes: The bilberry extract and beetroot powder in SEESTEAD® are rich in anthocyanins that help maintain eye health. Anthocyanins are antioxidants found in purple fruits and vegetables.
Promotes Eye Moisturising and Soothes Dry Eyes: After the end of a long day, you may often find that your eyes feel strained and tired. SEESTEAD® helps soothe and moisturise tired eyes and alleviate any signs of discomfort. The formula is fortified with zeaxanthin and N-acetyl glucosamine, a precursor of hyaluronic acid, which lubricates the eyes.
Provides Vital Eye Nutrients: Nutrients like lutein, zeaxanthin, bilberry, N-acetylglucosamine, beetroot, Vitamin C, taurine, selenium, B-Vitamins are essential for good eye health.
High Bioavailability: The nutrients used in SEESTEAD® are highly bioavailable and perfect for improving eye health, protecting them from damages.
Improves Visual Acuity: Vitamin B12 is essential for improving visual acuity- its deficiency causes blurred vision.
Defence Against Age-Related Eye Diseases: The anthocyanins in SEESTEAD® help boost low light vision and protect the eye against age-related eye disorders.
Assists in Reducing Vision-Related Headache: Eye strain can induce a headache. Good eye-protective nutrients like lutein, zeaxanthin, bilberry, N-acetylglucosamine, beetroot, Vitamin C, etc can assist in reducing vision-related headaches.
Who should consume SEESTEAD®?
SEESTEAD® can be taken by office goers, students, and everyone who has exposure to blue light. In individuals who complain of vision-related headaches, eye strain, and eye dryness, regular use of SEESTEAD® will be highly beneficial.
How should you consume SEESTEAD®?
As a dietary supplement, take 1-2 tablets- preferably with a meal or as directed by a healthcare professional.
1. What is blue light, and how does it affect your eyes?
Blue light is visible light of wavelength ranging from 400 to 500 nm.This makes it one of the shortest and high-energy wavelengths.Because it is shorter, blue light flickers more easily, causing eyestrain, headaches, physical and mental fatigue after prolonged exposure. The cornea and lens are unable to protect the eye from blue light, causing digital eye strain and macular degeneration.
2. What are the sources of blue light?
The sun is a natural source of blue light, while artificial sources include digital screens (TVs, computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets), electronic devices and LEDs, and fluorescent lighting.
3. Which nutrients are best for eye health?
Lutein and zeaxanthin are known as “eye nutrients” - a category of carotenoids (plant pigments). They protect the eyes against harmful UV rays or blue rays from computers, mobile phones, etc. Additionally, they also give protection against retinal macular degeneration, blurry vision, or cataract. SEESTEAD® is enriched with these two powerful ingredients to protect our eyes.
4. What is the role of Bilberry in SEESTEAD®? How does it improve eye health?
Bilberry is a plant that comes from the same family as blueberry. It is rich in anthocyanosides (blue-red pigments in berries) that help counter oxidative stress in the retina, reduce inflammation in the eye tissues, and support blood circulation and integrity of fine capillaries in the eye.
5. What is the role of NAG in SEESTEAD®? How does it affect eye health?
N-acetyl glucosamine (NAG) is the building block for hyaluronic acid,Recent studies indicate that NAG present in the outer protective layer of the retina is essential for the maintenance of healthy vision, helps to lubricate the eyes, and protects against age-related eye disorders.
