Is iGenics a Scam Supplement? – What You Should Know

iGenics is a vision support supplement that is promoted as being some amazing natural remedy, but is it really as good as we are told?

The answer is no.

Is iGenics a scam? I wouldn't go as far as to say that, but in this review I'll be going over why what this supplement is, the ingredients it has, why it won't work as well as we are told, some concerns I have, and more...

iGenix Review

  • Product: iGenix
  • Type: Eye health supplement
  • Manufacturer: ScienceGenics
  • Price: $69/bottle with discounts if you purchase more than 1
  • Recommended?: Not really
  • Where to Buy: Click Here

iGenics is an eye health (vision support) supplement produced by ScienceGenics, which is a very small company with limited information on them (as I'll go over). It is a 100% natural supplement that is said to be able to cure just about any negative eye condition, such as glaucoma, cataracts, AMD and more.

As you will see in this review, this supplement is a bit disappointing. Although it has some ability to help treat eye problems and help with vision, it is not going to be the cure-all it is promoted as.

To begin this review, let's first go over some of the ridiculous sales pitch...

The Sales Pitch

There are a couple variations of the sales pitch going around. One of which I came across was a video presentation...

... and another was a written text version...

screenshot

*Note: The sales pitch I'm talking about here comes from the written text version.

Supposedly this supplement was created by a guy named Dr. Charles Williams who claims to have served in the military, but there is no information provided for me to be able to prove his existence and he could very well be made-up. It certainly wouldn't be the first time I've reviewed a product promoted under a fake name. For example I recently reviewed a product called Lean Body Hacks that was said to be created by a guy named Randy Smith, who turned out to be a fake.

The religious approach

He claims that the secret to good vision comes from the "tree of life" talked about in the Bible, and that this plant is a "true Godsend".

This is a common sales approach I've noticed when it comes to natural supplements like this, but often nothing more than that--just a sales approach to get people to buy.

It's all about oxidation and inflammation

Dr. Charles Williams claims it's all about oxidation and inflammation, and that is is the reason for cataracts, glaucoma, AMD and other eye problems.

While there are definitely other causes of eye issues, oxidation is without a large cause. But how can we possibly stop oxidation? Well... he acts as if his amazing new discover of 9 herbs will do the trick.

Inflammation is also a big problem that he claims his concoction of herbs will take care of.

Ridiculous claims..

He talks about how DNA replication and how every cell in our eyes is replicated within 7 days--and acts as if we should have a brand new set of eyes every week!...

screenshot

Well if this were the case then there would be no such thing as aging and we would all live forever!

Every cell in the body replicates but the reality is far from what he leads us to believe. Aging is a part of life.

He acts as if God has put these plants on Earth to make us immortal or something. 

So anyways... the sales pitch is obviously a bit on the ridiculous side and over-the-top, which is probably what led you to think this might be a scam and to do a little extra research, but whether or not this will actually work depends on the ingredients... so let's take a look...

Ingredients - Will They Work?

igenics ingredients
1 & 2: Lutein and Zeaxanthin

These ingredients have become very popular for eye health, and it's no wonder since they are 2 very important antioxidants that are found directly in the eyes.

In fact, they are the only carotenoid antioxidants found in the eyes that can be supplemented through diet.

As far as research goes, they have been shown to potentially help treat everything from AMD, to cataracts, to retinopathy and more (source: healthline).

The eyes are delicate and these can help stop the free-radicals causing havoc--in addition to being beneficial for your skin and in other areas.

3: Bilberry Extract

It seems that many of the natural eye supplements have this ingredient, even though the science supporting it's ability to improve eyesight is severely lacking and inconclusive.

They talk about how WWI fighter pilots ate bilberry jam and had better vision because of it, which is something that hasn't been proven and has been used to market other somewhat shady eye-health supplements as well, such as Eagle Eye 911.

screenshot

That said, what is known is that bilberry is a good source of antioxidants that could help with pretty much everything from eyesight to wrinkles.

It is a very rich source of anthocyanins which give it the dark blue/black color it has as well as it's powerful antioxidant profile.

4: Vitamin C

We all know vitamin C is good for the immune system and keeping colds/sickness away, but it's also great for eye health, which you could say is somewhat dependent on immune health (as with the health of any part of the body).

Macular degeneration is one of the leading causes of blindness and this vitamin has been shown to slow its progression. 

Additionally, vitamin C was shown to protect against cataracts in a long 10-year study--and it is suggested that vitamin C intake may play a larger role in cataract development than bad genetics.

5: Ginko Biloba

The name sounds pretty interesting and rightly so. This plant is native to China and surrounding areas where it has been used as a traditional medicine for hundreds of years.

Like many traditional medicines, modern science is finally starting to catch up with them and back some of the claims of healing powers that have been around for ages.

Extracts of this plant are largely comprised of flavonoids and terpenoids, which have been more closesly looked at in recent studies for their ability to potentially treat eye conditions such as glaucoma.

Ginko biloba is shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects as well as rheological effects, which can help to increase blood flow in the retinal vein of the eye (source: 2012 article in Molecular Vision).

While there is a lot of unknowns as far as how effective ginko actually is, it looks promising.

6: Zinc

Zinc is what is sometimes called a "helper molecule" because it helps bring vitamin A to the retina of the eye, which is then used to produce melanin and protect the eye.

Bad vision, poor night vision, cataracts... these have all been linked to a deficiency in zinc and unfortunately this can be pretty common.

Nations like the US have some of the lowest rates, but it is still estimated by some researchers that about 12% of people may be deficient, and higher amounts for elderly people--a global estimate from a study in PLoS One states that globally the deficiency may be around 17.3%.

7: Copper

Copper has some good antioxidant properties as well and is often recommended to be combined with zinc, partly because taking zinc can actually lead to copper deficiency--so it's a good idea to supplement extra.

Another notable benefit includes its ability to encourage connective tissue growth.

8 & 9: Vitamin A & E

Vitamin A and vitamin E are both powerful antioxidants.

Researchers believe that vitamin E intake is important for protecting your eyes and it may help prevent cataracts.

We've all heard how carrots are good for our eyes, and this is largely because of the vitamin A content (well actually their beta-carotene content, which is converted into vitamin A in the body). This vitamin helps keep the eye lubricated and is important for good night vision.

Will These Ingredients Actually Help?

All of these ingredients are great and have 'potential' (as I keep saying), but here are some reasons they might not be as great as they seem and why many are likely to cause no effects...

  • Bilberries are close cousins to blueberries... and many of us probably are already eating such.
  • Lutein and Zeaxanthin are found in eggs and green leafy vegetables, which we are already getting to some extent. In fact, many people out there who eat healthy are already getting plenty. This supplement supplies 10mg of both lutein and zeaxanthin per serving and as you can see there are a good number of foods here that contain a lot, which you might be eating right now.

Source: USDA

So if you are already a big eater of green leafy veggies, this extra dose of lutein and zeaxanthin isn't going to do anything for you, because your body can only take in and use so much of it anyhow.

  • Vitamin C is great for eye health. I couldn't find any really recent studies, but a study published in 2005 found that about 31% of Americans are deficient in this vitamin (source: nutri-facts.org). This would mean that the extra 500mg dose that a serving of iGenics provides would be beneficial. That said, vitamin C is very easy to get naturally and if you consider yourself a healthy eater who eats fruits and vegetables (many are abundant in vitamin C) you likely don't have to worry about a deficiency.
  • Vitamin A deficiency is very common in developing countries, and can lead to eye problems including blindness, but in countries like the US it's not nearly as common.
  • Vitamin E deficiency is even more rare and isn't likely to be caused by inadequate intake but rather a metabolism or fat absorption problem. 
  • Ginko biloba is one of those old traditional medicines that has had some scientific backing in recent years, but at the same time there have been studies showing it to be ineffective for various eye treatments. The results are far from being conclusive that this is a good eye support supplement.

This definitely has potential to help. Every ingredient included here has some amount of scientific backing and research in one way or another and can potentially help to improve eye health and vision.

I don't want to be too hard on it, but the fact of the matter is that it is not going to be a miracle worker and fix everyone's vision like they make it seem in the promotional material.

Price

As it usually goes with supplements of this kind, they really push you to purchase a bunch of bottles by giving a massive "discount" if you do.

The price starts out at $69 per bottle and then decreases the more you buy, as follows:

  • $69 for 1 bottle
  • $59/bottle if you buy 3 bottles
  • $49/bottle if you buy 6 bottles
screenshot

How can they possibly discount the price $20 from $69/bottle to $49/bottle if you buy 6? ​

Well, I think its pretty obvious that this supplement is massively overpriced to begin with.

Money Back Guarantee

They do offer a 180 day money back guarantee, which they claim you can get by simply emailing them if you are not satisfied--you don't even have to return the product!

screenshot

Sounds great and all but I'm hesitant to believe this is as good as it seems.

It sounds a bit fishy and like an absolutely horrible business decision, especially because a lot of people are going to disappointed that iGenics doesn't perform miracles like you are led to believe.

I've seen claims like this many times before that aren't entirely true--sometimes the company makes the customer jump through a bunch of hoops that make it nearly impossible to get a refund.

But anyhow, the contact information they provide if you do want to try to get a refund is:

  • Email: support@fixeyesight.com
  • Phone: 855-210-1826

*On the website they also list another email (support@sciencegenics.com) that may be helpful when trying to get in contact with them.

Concerns

Lack of Company Information

The company behind the iGenics supplement is a very small company called ScienceGenics, which there is very limited information on.

Their address is listed at:

4804 NW Bethany Blvd. Suite i2-110
Portland, OR 97229

... however, upon further research it appears that this is the same exact address of a company called Kesa LLC, which is a beauty supply company.

screenshot

Could it be that ScienceGenics is owned by this company? Who knows... there is such limited information.

Ingredient Quality

Going along with there being very little information on this company is the concern about ingredient quality.

Can you trust the quality of the ingredients they have?

I don't know about you, but when it comes to supplements like this that you have to ingest I like to be able to trust what I'm ingesting.

Also, the quality of ingredients can make a huge difference.

Bad Marketing Tactics

The fact that their marketing tactics are deceptive, misleading, and... well... unethical, should be a bit concerning too.

This is something else that leads me to believe this company might not be all that trustworthy.

Is iGenics a Scam?

The answer to this question largely depends on what your definition of a scam is.

If the product does contain good quality ingredients (as I guess I have to assume it does because I don't have proof otherwise) then I wouldn't consider it a scam... at least not a complete scam.

However, if you consider something that is a marketed in a misleading manner a scam, then you could possibly consider this such.

Pros v Cons

Pros

  • Ingredients are proven to work (to some extent more or less)
  • 180 day money back guarantee

Cons

  • Misleading promotions
  • Many people likely won't notice any difference (if you are a 'healthy eater' you probably get adequate amounts of most the ingredients)
  • Lack of company information
  • Pretty high price
  • Questionable ingredient quality

Conclusion - Worth Trying or Not?

In my opinion there are many more cons than pros here, but it still could possibly be worth the purchase.

Lutein & zeaxanthin, ginko biloba, bilberry extract, etc... these can all potentially help, largely due to their high amounts of antioxidants. Just don't expect too much.

I'm not going to be personally recommending iGenics due to the many reasons disused above, but if you do want to give it a try you can order iGenics on the official website here.

Is Vision 20 a Scam

Is Vision 20 a Scam Supplement? – What You Should Know

Vision 20 is an eye health supplement that sounds amazing, but also sounds too good to be true.

Is Vision 20 a scam supplement you should avoid? Well, I’m not recommending it and you will see why.

It seems that most of the reviews out there are just promoting it like crazy, so I think reading mine will be a breath of fresh air. In this I’ll be going over some of the ridiculous information you are told, whether or not the ingredients will actually help and more.

Vision 20 Review

  • Product: Vision 20
  • Type: Eye-health supplement
  • Cost: Varies, from $33 – $49 per bottle (depending on purchase quantity)
  • Recommended?: Not really

Vision 20 is an eye-health supplement created by Dr Ryan Shelton at Zenith Labs. After my review I found that it does have some potential to help, but it isn’t something I’m going to be telling people to go out and buy. The marketing behind it is too much for my liking and I also think it is a bit too costly.

To start off this review, let’s go over the ridiculous sales pitch, which is probably what made you think this might be a scam in the first place…

The Ridiculous Sales Pitch

What I came across is the video presentation shown below, but I’m sure there are probably multiple variations and I know there is a written text version as well. No matter what sales page you landed on, I’m sure it was ridiculous and made Vision 20 sound too good to be true.

Vision 20
It seems like the sales pitches always start out with some sad story. The story here was about a lady named Diane who lost her ability to drive, read, and lost her independence–she got lost at night while driving and had to ask for directions, which embarrassed her because she didn’t seem very capable.

We are told that an “invisible blue radiation is attacking every man and woman in America over the age of 45”, which is misleading.

What they are talking about here is blue light, which does damage our eyes. But its affecting everyone, not just older people. And, it’s not like this is some new occurrence. The most blue light we get comes from the sun, and even if you lived 1000 years ago you would have the same blue light problem from it. That said, it is true that we are ‘overexposed’ to some extent nowadays due to all the electronic devices we look at.

Typical Fear Mongering..

The sales pitch here is your pretty typically scammy fear mongering type–where they try to scare you into buying their product.

In the video presentation I watched the spokesman stated very firmly that declining eyesight “will make your family think that they have to take care of you”, “it will rob you of respect at work”, “it will trap you at home” and so on…
screenshotIt’s true that bad eyesight can lead to all of this, but they take this sales pitch a bit too far and try to make it seem like it is an absolute fact that all of this will happen.

Of Course It’s Some Hidden Natural Remedy..

Just like many of the other scammy supplements I expose on my website here, the secret to saving your health all comes from some flower that you might have growing in your yard right now–which will protect you against blue radiation.

The flower?

Marigold…

screenshot

As the sales pitch goes–Marigold contains 2 very special nutrients called Lutein and Zeaxanthin.

A Little Background On The Company Behind This Product

So… Vision 20 is a product by Zenith Labs, who has a medical director named Dr Ryan Shelton, who you probably heard of if you read or watched the sales pitch.Dr Ryan Shelton Vision 20I am actually familiar with this company and Dr Ryan because I have reviewed products in the past that are made by it, such as Blood Sugar Premier and Hearing X3–which by the way were marketed in very similar scammy ways and neither did I end up recommending to my readers.

The company and Dr Ryan Shelton are well known for hyping up products to seem like they will work miracles when they really are nothing all that special, which is exactly what they are doing with Vision 20.

Also, Zenith Labs is a very small company that I don’t really trust all that much. Not just because of the ridiculous marketing tactics they use to sucker people into buying their products, but also because the company address they give us doesn’t really make sense.

On the website (zenithlabs.com) they state that their address is:

4610 Prime Parkway

McHenry, IL, 60050, USA

… however, when I search this address in Google the only company I can find located here is called Corporate Disk Company, which is a company that does printing, CD/DVD duplication/replication and things like this.

So I don’t really know what’s going on here.

*If someone is reading this that works for Zenith Labs could you please clear the air on this?

Ingredients – Will They Really Work?

Here is the label from a Vision 20 bottle…

vision 20 ingredients

The main ingredients are Zeaxanthin and Lutein. But we are told that they are only absorbed if also taken with zinc, and of course you need the exact right type of zinc–and they act like this supplement is the only one on earth that has it. Furthermore, they tell us that we need the EXACT right ratio of these ingredients and that it is “almost impossible” to figure it out on our own–which is why we need to buy Vision 20 of course!

Will Zeaxanthin & Lutein Help?

One of the ways mentioned that these two carotenoids help your eyes is by protecting your lens, absorbing ROS toxins that could potentially damage them. This is true. These carotenoids are what make up the macular pigment in our eyes and are thought to protect against a number of eye diseases. They are known to have light filtration properties that protect our eyes by keeping damaging blue light from going too deep into our retinas, and they also have been shown to have local antioxidant activity, protecting against oxidative damage (source: 2017 study published in Molecules).

As stated on Healthline, these two compounds basically work as a natural sunblock. They are not all hype and really do have a fair amount of scientific studies backing their importance.

Other Ingredients

Bilberry extract is another ingredient here that is really hyped up. In the sales pitch we are told that British Air Force pilots ate them and their night vision improved because of it, allowing them to shoot down Nazi planes with better accuracy. While this story hasn’t really been proven with solid evidence, there is some hope for this ingredient. There is definitely a lack of scientific backing as for its ability to improve your eyesight, but at the very least it is a good source of antioxidants and should help protect against oxidative damage. Furthermore, it has been shown to help with dry eyes and a 2015 study from the Journal of Nutrition, Health, & Aging found that it helps with eye fatigue as well.

As far as Rose Hip goes, there doesn’t seem to be all that much evidence backing it’s ability to improve eye health, but a lot of articles that I have found online do suggest it does help.

There are also other ingredients like Beta-carotene, Lycopene, and vitamin C–but these are very easily found in normal foods and most people are likely already getting enough in their diets.

An Over-hyped Product That Could Work

It seems like what we have here is another product that is way over-hyped, but could actually work–or at least help.

I am not a fan at all of the marketing around this product. Much of it is extremely misleading and they try to scare us into buying it, but based on the ingredients alone it’s not all that bad.

Conclusion – Worth Trying or Not?

I’m not going to say you shouldn’t buy it, and if you want to you can buy Vision 20 on the official website here, but I’m not going to be actively recommending it either.

In my opinion, yes it could help with eyesight, but it is too over-hyped and because of this it is over-priced. I think there are better alternatives out there.

What you could do is simply look for products with the same ingredients on Amazon, which there are plenty of.

Anyways… I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. Be sure to leave any comments or questions below and I’ll get back to you soon 🙂

Vision X20 scam

Is Vision X20 a scam? – What You Should Know

Vision X20 is promoted as being the greatest eye-health supplement ever, but is it really? Or is Vision X20 a scam that you would be better of avoiding?

In the promotional material you find online it seems pretty amazing. I mean, there are claims that you will see results within just 3 days and the before and after pictures they show from the outside of the eye look amazing…
screenshot

But of course the reason you are looking more into this supplement is because it seems a bit ‘scammy’–which is the same first impression I got when it came across it–reminding me a lot of other somewhat scammy eye health supplements, like Eagle Eye 911 for example.

In this review I’ll be giving you the truth. I found that most of the reviews out there are just promoting it and the information they provide is basically just a sales pitch.

Vision X20 Review

Vision X20 is a supplement that is being promoted like crazy online right now. They make it seem like the holy grail of eye health supplements, but unfortunately in my research I have found it to be very disappointing. It is nowhere as near as the sales pitches and promotions you have likely come across online make it seem.

The sales page I came across was what you see below, but I’m sure there are multiple different ones out there…

screenshot

Yes, there is some potential for it to…

  • Protect your eyes
  • Help slow eye aging & degeneration
  • Regenerate key vision cells
  • Fight to reclaim your perfect eyesight

… as they tell you it can, but overall this is a very overpriced, disappointing, and very ‘scammy’ supplement.

To start off this review let’s go over some of the many red-flags that I came across, which will likely make you put away your credit card and exit out of the sales page (if you were thinking about buying this).

Loads of Red Flags

The sales page I came across is absolutely filled with red-flags. There are lots of lies being told and all in all, this is some very scammy marketing.

Fake Testimonials

For example, you can see below that these people supposedly have been using Vision X20 and getting really good results… after all, it says “real people. real results”. But it would be better if they just wrote “fake people, fake results”…

screenshot

Why?

Well, because the images of these people are all fake. “Lillie M.” (pictured above) isn’t really “Lillie M”. The picture of her is a stock photo available for purchase by anyone…

screenshot
In addition to those testimonials being fake, what I found out next might even be worse.

Fake Doctors

The doctors are FAKE TOO!

Further down the sales page there was a section about how Vision X20 is “Doctors Recommended” and then there were a bunch of quotes listed from what are supposed to be real doctors, as you can see here…

screenshot

What you can also see is that I labeled this as being fake.

First off, I did a reverse Google image search for the photo used and found that the doctor in the photo is another stock photo that anyone can buy online and use as they wish…

screenshot

Secondly, this doctor’s name is supposedly “Dr. Genet” and they are an Ophthalmologist. Now this doesn’t give me that much to work with because they only give a first name for the doctor (or last name; I guess it could be either). But anyways, I searched for a Dr. Genet who is an Ophthalmologist and the only thing I could find was a LinkedIn profile for an Ophthalmologist named Dr. Genet who is from Ethiopia, but there is not really any information on him nor is there an picture.

My guess–this is all fake.

Unbacked Claims

What also might be fake are the claims made that this supplement has “saved the eyesight of over 10,000 people.” in France, which you can see here…

screenshot

I am very hesitant to believe this claim after finding all the other lies told–and the fact that there is absolutely NO SUPPORTING EVIDENCE that this has actually happened certainly does not help.

Why The Name Change?

One thing that I find pretty strange and suspicious is the fact that this supplement recently changed its name from Vision RX20 to Vision X20 as we know it today.

Vision RX20

Why? Well, who knows!

The ingredients and everything are the exact same with the exception of 1 additional milligram of Niacin being added to the mix.

I suspect the reason for the name change is for marketing purposes. Likely the bad reputation Vision RX20 was getting caused the manufacturer to change the name–so that it could be re-marketed as a new product with a clean slate. I’ve seen this sort of thing done a hundred times before so I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this was the case.

Will It Help Your Eyesight At All?

Okay, let’s take a look at the ingredients…
screenshot
Much of what this supplement contains (vitamins A, C, E, and B1, zinc & niacin) you are already likely getting enough of–so we’ll skip talking about these because you won’t see much benefit.

The other ingredients on the list are:

  • Selenium – This mineral is essential for your overall health and can help prevent cataracts, is linked to preventing glaucoma and more. However, deficiency of this mineral is rare, so taking more of it in this supplement likely won’t help.
  • Bilberry fruit extract – While there isn’t a lot of proof of it helping with vision, it does have anti-inflammatory properties and is thought to help with retinopathy (source: WebMD).
  • Fish oil complex – Fish oil is known to help with inflammatory problems/diseases and, according to the article The Role of Fish Oil in Inflammatory Eye Diseases, it might help with dry eye disease and age-related macular degeneration.
  • Lutein & Zeaxanthin – I’ve seen these included in eye-health supplements before. They are thought to prevent AMD as well as prevent blue light from entering deep into the retina–thus preventing damage.
  • Astaxanthin – This is a carotenoid that is known to have some pretty good antioxidant properties and protect against age-related problems. It has been shown to protect against cataracts, age-related macular degenertation and glaucoma.

You are more than welcome to look into all of these ingredients on your own, but based on my findings after doing some quick research, there is definitely some proof that taking such could help improve eye-health–and the dosages included in this supplement do seem to be adequate. That said, much of what this is providing you with your body won’t really need because it is already getting enough of it and there is certainly no guarantee that it will help.

Can You Really Trust The Manufacturer?

Okay, so at this point we know that much of the marketing is a bunch of BS, but based on the ingredient profile it seems this supplement does have some potential.

But can we trust it? After all, there are plenty of supplements that say they include one thing but really don’t–and if I’m going to be putting something into my body I want to be sure that I can trust it.

The company behind Vision X20 is called Life Sprout Bioceuticals. They have a C+ rating with the BBB and are headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

I was expecting to come across a more scammy looking company to be honest, but it appears that Life Sprout Bioceuticals is legitimate. They are a very small company and there isn’t all that much information on them, but they are transparent with who runs the company, where they are located and even provide a phone number for customer support (1-800-308-7136).

*You can go to their website for more info: lifesproutbioceuticals.com

Price – NOT Free

On the sales page I was on it led me to believe that I was going to be able to get a free bottle of this stuff, which is misleading. It didn’t actually say the word “free”, but the marketers behind this product know what they are doing.

Anyways… the cost per bottle depends on how many bottles you buy…

  • 1 month supply – $59/bottle
  • 4 month supply – $37/bottle
  • 8 month supply – $24/bottle

As you can see, the discount for buying more bottles is a lot–and this leads me to wonder if the cost of 1 bottle at $59 for a 1 month supply is reasonable to begin with.

If they are able to take the price down to $24/bottle and still profit from it, then the starting price of $59/bottle has got to be a massive ripoff.

Is Vision X20 Worth a Try? Final Thoughts

It seems like what we have here is a product that does have some potential to work, but it is marketed in a very scammy and misleading way–and is overpriced.

So for this reason I don’t feel that I should be recommending my readers to buy it. I think there are better and cheaper alternatives out there that would be worth the money much more than this. I would suggest taking a look at eye health supplements on Amazon–which there are plenty of.

I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. There weren’t really any unbiased reviews out there so I thought it would be helpful to write this.

Please leave any comments or questions below. I like to hear feedback from my readers 🙂

Is Eagle Eye 911 a Scam

Is Eagle Eye 911 a Scam Supplement? – Read Before Buying!

Can Eagle Eye 911 really improve your eyesight or is this just another scam supplement that is going to be a waste of your money?

That is a big question and it is one that you should definitely be asking yourself. After all, there are plenty of “less than ethical” supplements out there that do not do what they’re supposed to, and of course you don’t want to waste your money on something like this.

And… I’m probably not the only one that came across the video presentation for this supplement and thought it sounded a bit “scammy”.

In this review I’ll be going over what Eagle Eye 911 is, the ingredients and whether or not they actually work, some concerns I have, complaints and more.

But before we get into all of that, let’s first talk about the sales pitch, which is a bit ridiculous in my opinion.

The Sales Pitch

Maybe you have seen it or maybe you haven’t, but there is a video presentation out there that I came across which looks like this…

video presentation

And as you can see this video is titled  “never worry about your eyesight again… guaranteed”.

Really? You’re going to guarantee that whoever takes this supplement will “never” have to worry about their eyesight again. That is quite a bold to claim to make, and honestly it sounds a bit” scammy”.

The spokesperson in the video, who says his name is Dr. Steve Klayman, claims to be a renowned health care practitioner and says that they have put together some new “secret formula” to improving eyesight.

This formula is supposedly so good that it “can give you twice the protection of typical vision supplements” and it is “59 times more vision defense than a best-selling multivitamin”. HOWEVER, these statements are misleading as you will see soon.

The video goes on and on, for what feels like forever, and mostly just repeats the same things over and over again. It was pretty painful to sit through and if you did end up making it through the entire video you should give yourself a pat on the back.

It’s All About Lutein

Most of the focus of the video presentation is on lutein, which is found in green leafy vegetables and is claimed to protect retinal cells from damaging blue light.

There is some talk about other ingredients that are included in this supplement, but the main focus is on lutein… And supposedly this supplement has some “special” form of lutein.

Lots of Talk About How Other Vitamins/Supplements Aren’t Any Good

There it is also a lot of talk about how other multivitamins out there on the market have a cheaper form of lutein which does not absorb well and will not work.

The spokesperson compares it to some random multivitamin and says that Eagle Eye 911 can give you 59 times more eye protecting power, yet this claim is completely unsubstantiated.

Red Flags!:

You are probably reading my review now because you want the truth and you were suspicious that this might be a scam yourself. The reason for this is probably because there are many red flags that make this seem a bit untrustworthy.

Overall it just seems a little bit too good to be true, does it not? And we all know what they say about things that sound too good to be true.

Also, there are some red flags that you probably are not aware of.

For example, I did a little research into this “Steve Klayman” guy and I am pretty certain that he is a FAKE. There have been more than one picture shown of this guy in different promotional material and the problem is that they show 2 totally different people…Eagle Eye 911 Steve KlaymanNow I’ve come across this sort of thing many times in the past when reviewing potential scam supplements. HOWEVER, this still could potentially be a real doctor. I understand that some people don’t like putting images of themselves all over the Internet, so the image could be a fake for privacy reasons.

But anyways… Enough about the sales pitch… Let’s talk about the actual product and whether or not it is any good…

Overview:

Eagle Eye 911 is a natural eye support supplement that is manufactured by company called Phytage Labs, which doesn’t exactly have the best reputation.

Although there are many “scammy” things going on here, such as the ridiculous sales pitch, overall the supplement does seem to be something that has potential. It contains proven ingredients, which I will go over now…. and this is the most important thing.

Ingredients

eagle eye 911 ingredients

If you can’t read that label, that’s fine, I will go over the ingredients you need to know about, the more important ones…

1) Lutein

Lutein is a cartenoid that has been very well proven to benefit eye health. It is also a powerful antioxidant that is located in the eye, so of course it is going to be important for eye health, right?

Eagle Eye 911 provides 20mg of a “special, patented, fully absorbable form of lutein”. 20mg is a good dose, so this is nice to see. HOWEVER, there was no information I could find about it being a “special” form of lutein that is “patented”. I’m not sure how true this statement actually is.

But anyways… Yes, lutein is something that benefits that eyes and this is not just some myth.

The National Eye Institute states that people who supplement lutein are less likely to develop AMD (age-related macular degeneration), which is a major cause of vision loss. This was concluded after an indepth study was conducted by the National Institutes of Health in 2001.

It has also been shown to reduce the risk of cataracts.

2) Bilberry Extract

There is a legend that says airplane pilots in the British Royal Air Force bombed an enemy during WWII with incredible accuracy after eating bilberry jam. They claim their night vision was improved.

This claim has been later proven by science. It can help increase your ability to see at night and holds some powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which is always a good thing.

It has also been shown to reduce eye fatige by a 2015 study published in The Journal of Nutrition, Health, and Aging.

3) Grape Seeds

According to WebMD, grape seed extract can help with eye disease that is related to diabetes.

In a 2011 study published in Molecular Vision, grape seed extract was found to protect the epithelial cells on the lenses of our eyes from oxidative stress and damage. Because of this researchers concluded that it might be a potential effective treatment against the development of cataracs.

4) Vitamin A

Vitamin A is an antioxidant vitamin that is pretty well known to help with eye health. This is what carrots and sweet potatoes have a lot of. And you have probably heard that they are good for your eyes at least once before.

One of the ways that it helps is by protecting the surface of the eye effectively keep away harmful things such as bactaria, viruses, etc. It has also been shown to be effective at reducing inflammation in the eye, which can cause wide array of problems.

5) Taurine

Taurine is extremely important for our vision. In fact, it necessary for the chemical reactions that produce our vision, which is why a deficiency in this amino acid is often associated with retinal decline.

Taurin is also a good antixodiant that helps protect the ocular tissue from damage done by free radicals.

6) Zinc

Zinc helps bring up vitamin A from the liver to the retina, which then helps to protect the eye. A deficiency in this mineral can lead to cataracts, cloudy vision, poor night vision and so on.

Taking  zinc supplements has been shown to slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration, which as I mentioned above is a common problem for many people as they age.

 

So Do They Work?

There is no doubting the fact that this concoction of natural ingredients definitely has potential to improve vision.

Now is it going to be a guarantee that your vision improves upon taking this? Absolutely not. I know that they say you will “never have to worry about your eyesight again… Guaranteed”, but this is not true.

Hopefully it will work for you, but there is definitely not a guarantee.

Concerns… The Company Behind It

The company behind this product is Phytage Labs, which as I mentioned earlier doesn’t exactly have a very good reputation.

I wasn’t able to find any good reviews from people complaining about Eagle Eye 911, however you can see below that another one of their popular products, Tinnitus 911, isn’t exactly very well liked…

BBB website

I’m very familiar with the product this guy is talking about because I have reviewed it. It gets a heck of a lot of complaints and the main problem that it has is MISLEADING ADVERTISING.

The main reason that Phytage Labs gets a fair amount of negative reviews (for various products) is from the misleading advertising. That said, if you actually know what you’re getting and don’t buy into the over-hyped sales pitch, then you probably won’t be too disappointed.

The Cost

The cost depends on how many bottles you purchase. The more you purchased the last you have to pay per bottle…

  • 1 bottle for $69.95
  • 2 bottles for $59.95/bottle
  • 4 bottles for $49.95 per bottle

Alternative Supplements

You can find some cheaper alternatives on Amazon but this is not as overpriced as I was thinking at first.

A lot of good alternative products out there are right around the same price.

It’s also worth mentioning that Phytage Labs is offering a 90 day money-back guarantee on Eagle Eye 911money-back guaranteeI have no idea the difficulty of actually getting your money back if you try, but it is still reassuring just knowing that they have something like this in place.

Final Verdict – Scam or Not?

I would not call Eagle Eye 911 a scam. In fact, as I’ve mentioned, I do think this supplement has the potential to improve vision. Many of the ingredients are well proven to possess vision-improving properties.

I just don’t get why they can’t promote it anymore straightforward and honest way, instead of the over-the-top sales pitch.

Overall this supplement really doesn’t look too bad. When I first came across this product I thought it was going to be a complete scam, but after digging a little deeper I’ve changed my opinion.

If you want to you can purchase Eagle Eye 911 on the official website here.

But anyways… I hope I’ve given you a more realistic look into this supplement so that you can make a more informed decision.

Outback Vision Protocol Complaints – What You Should Know

Outback Vision Protocol Complaints

Outback Vision Protocol is said to be able to cure your vision in three weeks with nothing more than a simple green smoothie. But can it really? Can nothing more than a smoothie really stopped macular degeneration, cataracts, retinitis, and other eye problems that can lead to blindness?

Well… While it does have some potential the truth is that this protocol is nowhere nearly as amazing as it is said to be. I have a lot of complaints about Outback Vision Protocol that I will be going over throughout this review. The point of me writing this is to warn people of what they are getting into. It is not the miracle that “Bill Campbell” claims it to be.

The Suspicious Story Behind It All

bill campbell outback vision protocolSo Outback Vision Protocol is the creation of Bill Campbell who is supposedly ex-military and once had a wife who suffered from severe macular degeneration. The reason I say “once had” is because he supposedly cured his wife’s problem in just three weeks after stumbling upon this incredible protocol.

Some of the claims made about Outback Vision Protocol our that it can reverse macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and even can correct near and farsightedness.

Of course all of our eye problems should be blamed on the “corrupt and dishonest optometrist industry. Bill claims that the entire eyecare industry is out to get you and only wants to make your eyes worse. He claims that they do not want to cure you because they want to keep sucking the money out of you. You are also told in the video presentation that the eyecare industry has been lying to you for years… TVs, computers screens, tablets, etc. I don’t cause eye problems… At least that is what he says.

He claims that it all comes down to two simple ingredients that you learned from an aborigines soldier while stationed in Australia.

Is any of the story true? While there is some truth to what he says but the entire background story about him being some soldier that got this protocol from an aborigines soldier over in Australia is likely untrue, although I cannot prove it.

False & Misleading Claims

Backed by medical professionals around the world

This particular protocol is NOT backed by medical professionals around the world like he tells you it is. It is true that the two nutrients he talks about are backed by plenty of science, but his protocol is not.

There have been no studies showing that this protocol can repair your vision to 20/20 in as little as three weeks no matter how bad it is.

Has been used by 51,297 people

Nope…. Not true either. This protocol has not been used to treat 51,297 people. Or if it has I would like to see the proof of it, but I’m guessing this is just another lie.

The eyecare industry is trying to shut him down

This is your typical BS sales pitch. He is using good old-fashioned fear mongering to scare people into thinking that they can’t go to the optometrist anymore in that buying his protocol is the only solution.

He tells you that the entire eyecare industry is crooked and is trying to shut him down. He then goes on to say that he doesn’t know how much longer the video presentation will be online because they are trying to shut him down. This is what you call false scarcity. He is just trying to make things seem urgent so that you buy in right away. There is no truth to any of it.

It also doesn’t even make any sense. He claims that this protocol he is selling is going to damage the eyecare industry because it is some great new thing that only him and some aborigines in Australia know about. However, he isn’t presenting anything new here. The protocol is based on well-known information that has been around for years. It is no new secret that has just been discovered.

Other Complaints

If I wanted to I could pick apart is entire video presentation and provide many examples of things that just don’t add up. However, I’m not going to do that because I don’t feel like spending that much time trying to prove a point that is pretty obvious.

The point is that much of what he says is a lie and some of it doesn’t even really make much sense.

Remember near the beginning of the video presentation how he talked about computers, TVs, cell phones, etc. not being the problem that the optometry industry tells you they are? He tells you that the optometry industry is just a bunch of liars and that they feed you these lies because they don’t want your vision to get better. HOWEVER… Later in the video he goes on to say that eyestrain is one of the main reasons people go blind in that you NEED to avoid as much as possible. Well, bright screens, such as those from computers and TVs, are proven to increase eyestrain so that would mean they indirectly could lead to you having blind… If I am hearing him correctly.

The Truth… What You Need To Know

Now you might be thinking that everything you are told is a lie. While much of it is, believe it or not… There is some truth behind all this. Even the storyline about the aboriginal people of Australia having the best vision in the world is true. I looked into this and found it pretty interesting because I had never heard of it before.

That said, I have not found any proof that their incredible eyesight is due to their diet, as Bill tells you. Based on what I have found it seems that this is more genetic than anything. Aborigines are just genetically gifted when it comes to eyesight.

What he tells you is that there eyesight is so good because of two main nutrients that they can sue money regular basis. These are the two main nutrients that he supposedly came across after talking to an aborigines soldier in Australia…

Now the story might be partly true and partly made of lies, but the truth is that these two nutrients are very important when it comes to human vision. Pretty much everything he says about lutein and zeaxanthin are true. They are both found in the retina and other parts of the eye where they are incredibly important.

Upon doing a little research into them, I found a good study on macular degeneration that took a massive sample of 380 men and women, ages 66 to 75 years old. During the study blood samples were taken to measure the subjects’ levels of lutein and zeaxanthin and early/late macular degeneration was measured with the Wisconsin Age-related Maculopathy Grading System. The results showed that low levels of zeaxanthin were correlated with significantly higher levels of macular degeneration, and low levels of lutein were also links to higher levels, just not as much.

In there is more than just one study on this out there. The evidence is pretty conclusive… Both of these nutrients are very important to our vision and they do have the ability to reduce and even reverse macular degeneration along with a variety of other eye problems.

How They Work

Believe it or not, you are actually told the truth here as well. Just as the video presentation goes, both of these nutrients apparently help stop harmful bluelight from penetrating deep into the retina. The further blue light penetrates, the more oxidative stress that causes which means more free radicals that damage your eyes. These two nutrients help stop that from happening.

Where Can You Get Lutein and Zeaxanthin?

Well you certainly don’t need to be following any “Outback Vision Protocol” that is for sure. In fact, there are many common foods that contain these two nutrients. According to  macular.org, these are some of the best natural sources out there:

  • Kale
  • Turnips
  • Spinach
  • Collards
  • Broccoli
  • Corn

They are all good sources but kale is by far the best. Why this is, I’m not sure… All I know is that it is extremely high in both nutrients.

The Big Question…

Okay… So now you know the “secret” that Bill Campbell is trying to sell you, so what is the point of buying this deceptive product?

Just go out and make your own kale smoothies along with other important and tasteful healthy ingredients. There is nothing special about Outback Vision Protocol and that is the point I really want to make clear. It is just in over-hyped product that is marketed in a very deceptive and unethical way that does definitely have some value to it, it is just not nearly the miracle worker that it is claimed to be, which is similar to products like Japanese Toenail Fungus Code, Tonaki Tinnitus Protocol and others.

Final Thoughts – Scam?

I wouldn’t call this a scam. It is just a very good example of how ridiculous and unethical online marketing can be. Couldn’t they have just presented this protocol in a truthful and honest way… Where you are being misled throughout a very lengthy video presentation? I guess not.

But anyways… I just have way too many complaints to ever even think about buying such a product or recommending it to other people. There is a lot of truth behind the protocol but is covered and served to you with so many lies it is repulsive. That said, if you do want to purchase it you can do so on the official website here.

I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Please share it to help spread the truth so that other people don’t get sucked into buying this protocol without really knowing the truth behind it all. Also, leave any questions or comments down below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
