Collagen and hyaluronic acid
The vitreous body is made up of water (about 99%) and is rich in hyaluronic acid, produced by cells which are called hyalocytes. Collagen and hyaluronic acid constitute the organic fraction, with structural function, of the vitreous body. The collagen fibres are immersed in a matrix of hyaluronic acid, which allows a sufficient separation among them, so as to ensure adequate transparency. The structure of the vitreous gel, also due to oxidative stress, age and/or particular conditions, can undergo some alterations (for example the collagen fibres can come into contact and join each other), with a consequent loss of part of transparency and the formation of vitreous opacities. It is, therefore, very important to preserve the integrity of the relations between the collagen and hyaluronic acid molecules.
Turmeric is a natural substance obtained from the dried rhizome of Curcuma longa, a perennial plant. Cureit® is a particular formulation of Curcuma longa extract based on a technological system (PNS) that allows achieving a significantly higher bioavailability in comparison to standard turmeric formulations.
N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is an N-acetyl derivative of the amino acid cysteine.
Carnitine is a conveyor of long-chain fatty acids to the mitochondria to produce ATP which is crucial in the body’s various biosynthetic reactions.
Vitamin C protects cells from oxidative stress and contributes to the physiological formation of collagen for normal blood vessel function.
Zinc intervenes in the process of cell division and helps protect cells against oxidative stress and maintain normal eyesight.
Magnesium is a mineral that contributes to maintaining electrolyte balance and normal energy metabolism..
