ZeaVision, the parent company of EyePromise, is a high-growth company founded in 2001. It is engaged in the rapidly expanding nutrition/nutraceutical industry with a mission to fight vision loss and preserve healthy vision. With more than 20 years of research, ZeaVision’s co-founder, Dennis Gierhart, PhD, pioneered the use of Zeaxanthin for eye health use. Studies show that Zeaxanthin (zee-uh-zan-thin) increases low macular pigment levels in the retina. Low macular pigment levels represent a leading major risk factor for AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration). ZeaVision’s patented formulas contain the highest levels of dietary Zeaxanthin available featuring ZeaGold, a natural, highly bio-available Zeaxanthin derived from an exclusive whole food source – paprika. Zeaxanthin is particularly scarce in the average US diet leaving a significant dietary gap for most people. ZeaVision’s patented formulas help bridge that dietary gap and support ocular health. The body does not produce Zeaxanthin or Lutein, so nutritional intake and supplementation are key in maintaining healthy Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD).
