I followed a recent thread about eye care with interest. I am 48 and
am already using 2.5 magnification for everyday reading. For my
jewelry work I use 4 to 6 with 10 for close up work. I had perfect
vision till I hit 40 :-). My question is: I bought a product called
OcuGuard from Twinlab at GNC. Amongst other things, a daily dose
contains 10mg of Bilberry Berry Extract and 20,000 mcg of Lutein.
What’s the difference between mg and mcg? When I look at other
products (from Swanson’s catalog) that are just Bilberry, I see that
the mg is much much higher. Am I taking enough Bilberry at 10 mg’s a
day to make a difference? Is the Lutein too high? Should I buy
separate products or stick with one complete (less pills is nice).
Does anyone have experience with the quality of Swanson’s products. I
know they are cheaper and sometimes that worries me that I’m getting
an inferior product. I appreciate the help. Thank you!
