The main issue with synthetic ingredients is that you don’t always get what you pay for. In reality, synthetic ingredients are well known for their low absorption, poor bioavailability, and the fact that they drain the body’s reserves of other minerals and vitamins (e.g., cofactors) required for proper absorption of other nutrients.
At BrainReference we recognize that dietary supplements can be the source of many allergic responses either due to cross-contamination with high-allergen compounds during the manufacturing process or because they incorporate ingredients obtained from high-risk allergenic foods (milk, eggs, or fish).
Companies with less integrity will use dangerous fillers as a “grease or lube” to aid in easier and faster production. Artificial dyes and colors are used to make supplements more appealing to the eye. Coatings are added to make capsules easier to swallow. How do these fillers impact your body and health?
Independent testing labs are not associated with the producing company, ingredients supplier, the company whose name appears on the product, or with the consumer. This means independent testing labs have no vested interest in the result of the testing and are less likely to “dry lab” or manipulate test results for self-serving reasons.
Advertised to protect and promote eye health, For Eyes is a dietary supplement based on several potent antioxidants such as Lutein, Selenium, Zinc and Vitamin C. The formula manufactured by Golden Glow is claimed to help reduce the effects of age-related eye dysfunction especially caused by oxidative stress and free radical damage. The core ingredient of the formula is Lutein, a substance naturally found in the macula, an area of the aye retina.
The company behind this formula is Golden Glow, an Australian headquartered manufacturer of dietary supplements. With a market experience of more than 35 years and, according to the company official sources, more than 6 million orders delivered worldwide, Golden Glow is one of Australia’s largest and most important manufacturers of dietary supplement, beauty and care and homecare products. Currently, the product portfolio of Golden Glow includes a large number of dietary supplements (vitamins, minerals, herbal remedies, sports nutrition, fish oils, etc), as well as beauty and home care products. The company claims to offer a 30 day money back guarantee on all their products. In addition, its official website gives their customers and potential customers the opportunity to consult a specialized naturopath who may answer any inquiries regarding the company’s products and terms of purchase.
For Eyes is designed for the use of adults. The manufacturer recommends caution, since high doses of Selenium may be dangerous.
For Eyes Ingredients
For Eyes includes the following ingredients: Lutein, Zinc Oxide, Selenomethionine, Calcium Ascorbate dihydrate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), and D-alpha-Tocopheryl Acid Succinate (Natural Vitamin E 50IU).
For Eyes is a blend of vitamins, minerals, and Lutein, a carotenoid with potent antioxidant activities. Lutein can be found in leafy green vegetables, such as broccoli, spinach, kale, and mustard greens. Its core function is to provide protection from free radicals, and is especially beneficial for eyes health because Lutein can be traced in high concentrations in the macula lutea (an area of the retina). Lutein can also be found in the cervical tissues, breast and skin. Lutein stores seem to decrease with age and hence supplementation becomes important to replenish these natural reserves. Low levels of Lutein may lead to conditions such as macular degeneration, which may cause loss of vision. Lutein also promotes cardiovascular and skin health.
Selenium is one of the most widely available minerals in the natural environment. Especially known as an antioxidant, Selenium has been researched in connection to health conditions such as memory loss, cognitive dysfunction, Alzheimer’s disease, mood, fatigue, depression, postpartum depression, and others. One particular study conducted on rats concluded that Selenium supplementation has the ability to improve the activity of learning and memory areas in rats suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Selenium should be used cautiously, as excess may cause stomach problems, nerve damage, hair loss, fatigue, and nail problems.
The manufacturer recommends taking one tablet daily with food. No side effects or precautions are issued.

- For Eyes comes with a low price ($22 for a 2 months’ supply)
- Consumers can consult a naturopath before purchasing any product from Golden Glow

- Selenium taken in large quantities is dangerous, hence the recommended dose should not be exceeded
For Eyes combines some of the most powerful natural antioxidants in a formula designed to promote eye health. Vision is known to decline with age, and one of the most important factors is oxidative stress. The ingredients in For Eyes actually work to prevent eye damage as a result of free radical damage. Lutein, Selenium, Vitamin C, and Zinc will prevent diseases known to cause vision loss. Unfortunately, the formula as such has not been clinically studied and there is no evidence of its effectiveness. We can only guess the formula will be effective at least for some consumers, based on the existing research of the main ingredients in relation to eye health.
