Northampton, Northamptonshire United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 04, 2007 -- Maintaining their eye health is a major concern as our pets age. As they get older their eyes have a harder time fighting off free radicals that cause oxidative stress. This highly oxidised environment within cells comes about as a result of a chemical reaction from exposure to oxygen and sunlight. Since the lens of the eye acts as a light shield for the retina, it's no wonder it takes all the oxidative punishment. The destructive action of free radicals (they are oxidising agents) also destroys enzymes that are needed to maintain cellular metabolism. And, since blood flow decreases with age, the eye is further deprived of other essential nutrients for health. Although many praise the benefits of dietary supplements, another way of preventing and treating eye disorders is through topical solutions.
Ethos Endymion Bright Eyes for pets is one of the most advanced eye formulas that offer protection from free radicals because of its unique formulation of lubricants, an anti-glycating agent, and antioxidant. Glycation occurs as a result of nonenzymatic binding of sugar to protein, which eventually leads to tissue damage. It's a condition that increases with age.
The newly formulated Endymion Bright Eyes for pets contains 1% N-Acetyl-L-Carnosine, a naturally occurring antioxidant and anti-glycating agent that, when topically applied, can penetrate and protect the lipid tissues of the eye against light damage. Bright Eyes for pets will help to diminish free radical damage and the harmful effects of glycosylation associated with degenerative eye disease.
