Do you often feel tired and worn out after long workdays staring at the screen? It is time to pay more attention to your health, in particular your eye health and metabolism. In a screen-obsessed nation like Singapore where people do not engage sufficiently in physical activity, more than half of the population are myopic after the age of twelve. Also, a significant number of the population reported weight gain since the pandemic.
Fortunately, there are some supplements that you can tap on to support your lifestyle. Among them are Vision Care and also Metabo-Care supplements from QN Wellness, a Singapore-founded and produced solution to address the rising local demand for wellness.
An established brand that goes back to 2007, QN Wellness is known for its research and technology into plant-based ingredients like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, spices, bark, flowers, leaves and other botanical components, which makes its supplements as natural as possible and vegan friendly.
The company started off with a unique Bone Essentials product comprising plant-based calcium and has now expanded its portfolio to a full range of plant-based supplements. Vision Care (S$48.45 for a box of 60 capsules or S$87.20 for two boxes) supports eye health by reducing eye fatigue and dryness. It contains lutein and blueberry extract (regenerates retinal cells and protect the eyes from light damage), β-carotene (reduces UV radiation), chrysanthemum extract (may protect against age-related macular degeneration), Vitamin A (supports healthy visual performance, dry eyes and corneal softening) and Vitamin B2 which improves the health of eye epithelial tissue.
I am generally always trying some form of eye supplements due to my poor eyesight, but mine are almost always made up entirely of lutein and sometimes zeaxanthin and bilberry. I was happy to try Vision Care with its wider range of components. It does seem to alleviate my dry and itchy eyes as I advance into middle age while having more screen time with heavier work duties and watching of more TV drama serials. As lutein cannot be synthesised by our body and must be obtained from one’s diet, eye supplements rank high on my supplements list.
Meanwhile, to promote overall sugar metabolism, blood circulation and health of the small blood vessels and nerves in our body, QN Wellness has produced Metabo-Care (S$48.45 for a box of 60 capsules, or S$87.20 for two boxes). It comprises three natural ingredients namely buckwheat, gingko and propolis. Buckwheat supports the healthy function of the pancreas, in particular the efficient metabolism of sugar, while gingko enhances blood circulation to the brain, eyes, heart, kidneys and feet which then improves the supply of oxygen and nutrients to other parts of our body. The third ingredient, propolis, is made by bees from tree buds, and is a immunity fighter that may have anti-inflammatory effects and also helps skin to heal.
Metabo-Care is just the thing many of us with a sweet tooth could do with, especially when our metabolism has not been helped by the decreased office commutes and movement restrictions of the past few years.
Vision Care and Metabo-Care can be purchased the QN Wellness website, which offers shipping within Singapore and internationally. They are also available at Lazada, Shopee and major Singapore retail stores.
