The need for eye-supporting supplements is at an all-time high – new research has revealed that during the pandemic, more than 1 in 3 Brits have reported deteriorating eyesight because of increased screen time. Eye-watering, there are millions of computer-based workers suffering from digital eye strain due to this, experiencing eye fatigue, dry eyes, poor sleep, headaches, and migraines daily.
To tackle this, FIGHT vitamins, best-known for its scientifically backed, vegan vitamin gummies, is launching its delicious new Support Vision peach flavoured gummy, designed to support overall eye health and performance, containing a blend of eight vitamins and minerals. With just twenty-three calories and less than 2g of sugar per two-gummy portion, the easy-to-take range is available on Amazon, is high in taste, vegan, AND free from preservatives.
Our modern lifestyle filled with Netflix, FaceTime, TikTok, and Instagram combined with new remote working habits packed with Zoom meetings, are all key contributors to increased screen time and, subsequently, poor eye health. At present, 60% of UK adults are working from home with 26% planning to work remotely either permanently or occasionally after lockdown4. The eye-watering fact is that there are millions of computer-based workers suffering from digital eye strain5, a.k.a computer vision syndrome, with the most common symptoms being eye fatigue, dry eyes, poor sleep, headaches, and migraines.
Fight vitamins have launched its NEW Support Vision vegan gummy, designed to support overall eye health and performance, containing a blend of eight vitamins and minerals. With 33% of Brits finding vitamin gummies easier to remember to take6 (beating normal tablets and capsules), FIGHT’S Support Vision gummies are an easy, tasty and effective way to provide optimal eye health support against the harmful effects of prolonged screen time.
Your daily dose of two Support Vision peach-flavored gummies contains:
● Vitamin A – which keeps contrast sensitivity working while on a computer7
● Vitamin B2 – keeps vision sharp8 and energy levels to a high standard9
● Vitamin C – supports optimal mental performance10
● Zinc – helps with attention levels11
● Niacin – can reduce tiredness and fatigue12
● Lutein – a key nutrient present in our eye, which naturally absorbs excess blue light from sunlight, LED, computers, and phones. Most eye health supplements are made of Lutein only, but FIGHT’s includes multiple nutrients.
According to Jane Barracato, Registered Dietitian and Vitamin Mineral Supplements expert at FIGHT Vitamins, the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t been kind to our eyes – we’re facing longer hours in front of a screen whether that be for work, socializing, learning, or relaxing – and yet Brits often ignore the warning signs that their eyes are stressed.
“Think about how you can support your eyes throughout the day. Start your morning with an eye health supplement that supports visual activity such as refocus and peripheral vision. Make sure you are taking regular breaks away from the screen throughout the day, making a conscious effort to look at things both close and afar to give your eyes a break. And of course, make sure you’re having regular check-ups with your optician to help support the windows to your world,” she said.
We tried this and they tasted nice. The range being low in sugar, high in taste, vegan, AND free from preservatives, they’re the perfect addition to your daily routine to help support hybrid working and increased screen time.
