Enjoy the Robust Benefits of Premium Nutrients for Total Eye Health and Daily Vitality for Adults 65+

With over 25 years of quality formula development, the superior benefits of Whitaker Nutrition’s top two products are hands down some of the highest quality supplements out there. And now, you can enjoy both of them—Vision Essentials Gold® for advanced eye health and Forward Gold Daily Regimen® for vibrant daily nutrition—and save a minimum of $10 when you buy them together. They were both developed for adults 65+, but rave reviews from customers of all ages continue to pour in.

Unprecedented eye health with 40 mg Lutemax® 2020 lutein

Loved by customers young and old, Vision Essentials Gold has helped thousands of people with top-of-the-line ingredients for overall eye health. With 40 mg clinically validated Lutemax 2020 lutein, 20 mg Setria®Glutathione (the body’s master antioxidant), a 300 mg Berry Vision Complex, plus 11 innovative ingredients, you can be assured that your overall eye health is getting the robust nourishment it needs.

Daily eye health depends on a wide spectrum of supportive ingredients

With Vision Essentials Gold, you get 40 mg of an advanced form and quality lutein—clinically validated Lutemax 2020 Lutein—which is comprised of researched levels of lutein as well as 8 mg zeaxanthin containing 2 mg meso-zeaxanthin. These three carotenoids are extraordinarily valuable when it comes to supporting eye health, especially when it comes to safeguarding your eyes from some of the negative effects of blue light exposure and supporting the density of your macular pigment.

You also get Setria Glutathione, a reduced glutathione, known as the body's "master antioxidant." Glutathione is produced by the cells in your body and this innovative form of glutathione, Setria, supports healthy glutathione levels.

Research establishes importance of shielding eyes against blue light exposure

Lutemax 2020 Lutein is an award-winning, clinically validated, advanced form of lutein plus zeaxanthin with naturally occurring mesozeaxanthin. Check out this amazing research that shields your eyes from our digital revolution:

In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study, healthy young adults were given a placebo or 20 mg Lutemax 2020 lutein with 4 mg of zeaxanthin for six months. Supplementation with Lutemax 2020 resulted in significant reductions in occasional headache frequency, eye strain, eye fatigue, critical flicker fusion frequency, contrast sensitivity, disability glare, photostress recovery, and improved MPOD and sleep quality.1

With the inclusion of Lutemax 2020 lutein, Vision Essentials Gold goes above and beyond standard formulas to deliver an advanced form of lutein and zeaxanthin plus 15 additional innovative ingredients for superior retina, macula, and total eye health support, as well as protection from free radicals. With all that, you’ll be hard-pressed to find another powerful and effective eye health formula like this.

Enjoy Vibrant Health with Powerful, Daily Nutrition for Adults 65+

Forward Gold Daily Regimen® is a daily nutrient regimen specifically designed to address the needs of adults 65 and over. Its robust daily coverage goes far beyond most senior multis by giving you advanced support for three important health areas—particularly as you age—brain health, bone health, and balance.

Designed to address the “3 Bs” of healthy aging, this one-of-a-kind daily multinutrient will help you stay mentally sharp and support your bone health and muscle strength, plus balance and stability. Based on scientific research here’s how the 3 Bs in Forward Gold support optimal health:

  1. Forward Gold® Brain and Body Multinutrient (2 capsules)
    A vital blend of vitamins and minerals supports vision health and the cardiovascular system, optimal cognition support, and everyday health support. Includes 250 mg of Cognizin® Citicoline—shown in a clinical study to help support brain and cognitive function, plus a healthy dose of vitamin B12.
  2. Bone and Balance Essentials™ (2 capsules)
    This special complex uses a unique bioavailable, easily absorbable form of calcium carbonate for the important role of bone health and muscle support. And for bone and joint health, and secure balance, a combined 3,000 IU of vitamin D3 is included in the Bone and Balance and Brain and Body components of Forward Gold.
  3. O-3 Essentials® (1 softgel)
    This critically important component includes EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids from low-mercury, cold-water fish sourced from sustainable, eco-friendly waters. The health benefits are well known, including support for cardiovascular and total body health.

Combined, the formulas in Vision Essentials Gold and Forward Gold Daily Regimen support the collective needs of your eyes and total body health to help keep you living vibrantly every day.

The company behind Lutemax 2020, OmniActive Health Technologies, ensures both traceability and transparency in delivering high-quality lutein and zeaxanthin through socially and ecologically responsible practices. Highlights from OmniActive include:

Community

Education & Social Stewardship

OmniActive has close relationships with more than 10,000 farmers who supply the marigold flowers. The result is a strong, reliable and efficient supply chain. The agricultural field teams regularly update farmers on technological advancements, including crop compatibility, to ensure efficient use of natural resources and cropland. This means greater consistency and reliability in marigold yields, improved quality of marigold crops and greater financial return for the farmers.

  • Frost & Sullivan 2011 Product Differentiation Excellence Award for Eye Health Ingredients (lutein and zeaxanthin).

Research on Lutemax 2020 lutein shows advances in MPOD, disability glare, and photostress recovery

In one double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, participants aged 18–22 were randomly assigned to one of three groups: Placebo, 10 mg of Lutemax 2020 Lutein with 2 mg of zeaxanthin, or 20 mg Lutemax 2020 Lutein with 4 mg of zeaxanthin for 12 months. Supplementation for both Lutemax 2020 dosages resulted in statistically significant improvements in macular pigment optical density (MPOD), disability glare, photostress recovery, and serum lutein and zeaxanthin.1

Study shows better attention with Cognizin® in Forward Gold

Rarely is an ingredient shown to be as impressive as Cognizin citicoline (CDP-choline), shown in a clinical study to help support cognitive health, attention, and mental energy. The study compared the effects of 250 mg of Cognizin vs. a placebo. After 28 days, those taking 250 mg—the amount in Forward Gold—produced more than 50% fewer errors on a commission test, showing that Cognizin helps support attention in women.2
