What interest for people living with diabetes?
The high concentration of sugar in the blood damages the cells of the retina, the part of the eye fundamental for the view, and can cause damage to blood vessels in the eye. Diabetic retinopathy is one of the most common complications and could occur after only 10 years of diabetes. The only way to avoid it is prevention through good glycemic control, periodic eye examinations and antioxidants- based supplementation.
What is it?
ViuBetix is a food supplement that helps in the prevention of diabetic retinopathy. ViuBetix contains 7 nutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and others), including lutein and quercetin, useful to protect the visual function due to their effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions.
