Features anti-inflammatory ingredients, vitamins and electrolytes for eye health


Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients

Inflammation plays a significant role in developing dry eye disease, when eyes are not sufficiently lubricated. Chronic inflammation of the eye surface and inner eyelid and the meibomian glands can reduce tears and change their composition. Meibomian glands, which emit natural oils called meibum when we blink, can become clogged due to inflammation. Inflammation can then cause damage to delicate tissues of the cornea and the membrane that covers the eye.

Green Tea Extract

Studies show that Green Tea Extract improves ocular surface inflammation, Tear Break Up Time scores (TBUT), as well as meibum/oil levels in patients with evaporative dry eyes and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction. More about the research into green tea, dry eye and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction.


High levels of Taurine are present in the anterior part of the ocular surface. It is thought Taurine helps dry eye through its osmoregulatory action. More about the research into antioxidant characteristics of taurine and its impact on dry eye.


An Asian spice that has been shown to inhibit the pro-inflammatory cytokines that cause inflammation of the cornea and conjunctiva. More about the research into therapeutic benefits of curcumin, produced by turmeric (Curcuma longa species).


Omega 3’s have been used in the care of dry eyes for years. Studies have shown that Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and it’s derivatives reduce dry eye related inflammation. Our DHA is derived from algae. More about reseach into DHA, protectins and dry eye.


Vitamins support a variety of physiological processes essential for vision. From Vitamin A’s positive impact on the tear film, to Vitamin C’s improvement of cellular function to B vitamins ability to nourish and repair the corneal nerve layer, vitamins can be a part of ensuring daily eye health.

Vitamin A

Dry eyes are one of the first signs of Vitamin A deficiency. Studies have shown that Vitamin A supplementation improved the quality of the tear film and mucous membranes. More about the research into vitamin A supplementation on the ocular tear film in patients with dry eye.

Vitamin C

Vital for repairing tissue and improving cellular function and immunity. More about research into antioxidant properties of Vitamin C.

Vitamins B3, B6, & B12

B Vitamins have been found to help nourish and repair the corneal nerve layer thereby alleviating burning and photophobia. More about this research into B Vitamins and dry eye relief.


Electrolytes are special minerals with built-in electric charges in your body, found in your blood, urine, tissues, and other fluids. Electrolytes help maintaining water balance and pH balance, while also helping nutrients enter your cells, assisting in waste removal from the body, proper functioning of nerves, muscles, heart and brain.

Calcium Lactate

Calcium is necessary for normal functioning of nerves, cells, muscle, and bone.

Potassium Chloride

Potassium enables your body’s cells, kidneys, heart, muscles, and nerves to function properly.

Malic Acid

Malic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, is commonly used for dry mouth, as well as fibromyalgia, fatigue and other conditions.

Sodium Chloride

Sodium chloride maintains fluid balance, absorbs nutrients, maintains blood pressure and contracts and relaxes muscles.

Citric Acid Anhydrous

As a compound of citrus fruits, Citric Acid is key intermediate in metabolism and one of a series of compounds responsible for the oxidation of fats, carbohydrates and proteins to carbon dioxide and water.

Sleep Enhancers

Eye health is linked to sufficient sleep. Several natural sleep enhancers have been used for centuries to promote relaxation and improve sleep quality including melatonin to aid in the sleep-wake cycle, valerian root to promote tranquility to alleviate anxiety and chamomile to induce a sense of calm conducive to falling asleep.


Melatonin is a hormone primarily released by the pineal gland at night, and has long been associated with control of the sleep–wake cycle. As a dietary supplement, it is often used for the short-term treatment of insomnia, such as from jet lag or shift work, and is typically taken orally.

Melatonin is the supplement that gets all of the hype for increasing and improving sleep, and for good reason.  Countless studies and meta-analysis of research demonstrate that melatonin decreases sleep onset latency, increases total sleep time and improves overall sleep quality. The effects of melatonin on sleep are modest but do not appear to dissipate with continued melatonin use.

What is also interesting regarding melatonin is the recent interest in the supplement for the treatment of dry eye.  Although extremely early in research, Melatonin may be able to protect corneal epithelial cells and, in turn, could be used as a potential treatment for dry eye. More about the research on melatonin’s benefits for dry eye.


Chamomile, a daisy-like flower, is a common herb used for years. In one study, the use of chamomile extract improved sleep quality among test subjects. More about research study into chamomile’s impact on sleep quality.

Valerian Root

Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) is an herb native to Europe and parts of Asia. Valerian root has a long history of use as a sedative. Valerian can grow to be just over 6 feet tall and has a strong odor. It seems to act like a sedative in the brain and nervous system. More about research into valerian root on sleep quality.
