OcluVet Eye Drops
PractiVet OcluVet is an advanced nutriceutical formulation
developed to address the contributing factors of lens opacities, like cataracts.
It is comprised of numerous ingredients rather than taking a single ingredient
approach to address the multiple deficiencies of the lens.
Glycation of lens proteins is a primary factor in cataract
formation. Glycation results in the formation of a schiff base (SB) and Amadori
rearrangement via the Maillard reaction leading to early glycation products. As
the process continues, dehydration and rearrangement leads to cross-links
between adjacent proteins, resulting in protein aggregates, advanced glycation
end products (AGE's) and increased oxidative stress (glycoxidation). In simple
terms, with age, disease, or trauma the crystallin proteins in the eye lens are
damaged and denatured allowing them to clump to together. This clumping of
damaged proteins is what is recognized as a cataract.
The OcluVet Ocular Restoration System
Crystallin lens proteins are long-lived proteins expressed early
in life with virtually no turnover or protein synthesis. The eye protects its
DNA from damage with numerous antioxidant systems. The OcluVet formula was
designed to target the reactions that lead to the formation of damaged proteins
and provide the nutrients needed to repair the altered amino residues and
oxidation to allow the proteins to return to their healthy, noncross-linked
state. Unlike oral or commercially available eye drop supplements that
demonstrate little or no benefit, OcluVet utilizes a systems approach in
targeting compromised and damaged components of the eye. This powerful
antioxidant/ nutrient system provides immediate neutralization of existing free
radicals and is a glycation and protein cross-linking inhibitor.
