Don’t bother using Vision 20 supplement by Zenith Labs to improve your vision because it is a scam! This supplement is nothing but the replacement of the defunct scam Outback Vision Protocol and in this review, you’ll find out why I said this and the many reasons why you should stay away from this product. So let’s dig into this supplement, shall we?
Vision 20 was launched around June 2018. It claims to be the the supplement that will aid you in fighting ‘age-related vision decline,’ which he says is an ‘epidemic’ that the medical industry has ‘ignored.’
According to the manufacturer Dr Ryan Shelton, Vision 20 will ‘help protect against the toxins that damage your eye cells and hurt your vision.’ And how does it plan on achieving this? By flooding your body with ’10 nutrients’ that have been scientifically proven to shield your eyes against toxic damage. Oh … and this supplement is based on 25 scientific studies that cost millions of dollars to complete.
Okay then, more about that later. But first…
What Vision 20 Will Supposedly Do For You
According to Dr Shelton, here is what his Vision 20 Supplement will do for you:
- ‘Support near-distance vision to better read recipes or prescription bottles’
- ‘Fortify far-distance vision to better recognize faces and see the TV clearly’
- ‘Protect low-light vision to more confidently drive at night’
- ‘Restore confidence and self-respect by supporting against age-related vision decline’
- ‘Fortifies your delicate eye cells’
- Helps you retain ‘the respect of your family, so they still see you as someone to look up to, and not as a someone weak and in need of care.’
Woah with the last one!
As you may have noticed, this supplement is clearly targeted at middle-aged and elderly people. In other words, this is the group of people that are most susceptible to scams like this supplement. Thankfully, Contra Health has their back!
Science Behind Vision 20
Dr Shelton begins by making the outrageous claim that Vision 20 was based on 25 scientific studies that cost ‘$1 million each’ to complete. In addition, he claims that each of the supposed 25 scientific studies:
- ‘Was performed by doctors and researchers with 8-12 years of intense schooling’
- ‘Lasted up to 2 years (which cost 2 years’ worth of doctors’ salaries)’
- ‘Required medical laboratories that cost $100,000,000s to build…’
Interesting. With all this hype, I’m now very curious to see these 25 super studies. Let’s now talk about Dr Shelton’s ‘research’ on vision problems, shall we?
What Causes Vision Loss According to Dr Ryan Shelton
Dr Shelton begins by scaring his potential customers with ‘statistics’ about vision loss:
‘Nearly 20% of men & women over 40 had a vision problem known to lead to legal blindness. And that risk only goes up as you get older.’
‘People With Vision Issues Are 17x More Likely to End Up in a Nursing Home.’
‘Even with glasses, your vision will just keep getting worse.’
‘[Laser surgery] can’t save you from the sort of eyesight decline we’re talking about. And that’s not even mentioning the scary complications, or the cost that insurance almost never covers, and most folks could never afford on their own.’
Then he turned to blasting ‘mainstream medicine’ for saying that vision decline can be a normal part of aging, arguing that ‘70% of Americans are overweight, but that doesn’t mean being overweight is healthy.’
Finally, Dr Shelton tells us that your vision declines as you grow older because the lens of your eyes lose their flexibility, which hinders your eyes to focus properly on objects. He then blames it on the actions of ‘a damaging kind of oxygen’ called ‘Reactive Oxygenated Species (ROS). The most ‘shocking’ and ‘deadlier’ source of ROS, says Shelton, is ‘invisible blue radiation’ aka ultraviolet rays, which you cannot avoid as it is present everywhere from the sun to some plastic lying on the floor.
According to him, ‘ROS toxins’ viciously attacks your lens cells, causing then to stiffen and become inflexible. He then cites this ‘scientific study‘ which, as you can see, doesn’t say anything about toxins damaging your lens.
Dr Shelton also goes on to claim that ROS toxins lead to cataracts (clouding of the lens), thereby ruining your vision. He then cites this ‘scientific study‘ to back up his claim but again, the article doesn’t say anything about clouding of the lens.
Aaand that’s it about the science behind Vision 20.
How Does Vision 20 Work?
Dr Shelton claims that your lens do have ‘natural vision detoxifier compounds’ (VDC) that protects you from from ROS toxins. However, this ‘natural shield’ is depleted by the constant attacks of ROS, which by the way, prevents your lens from producing more ‘vision detoxifier compounds.’ As a result, a ‘vicious cycle’ of ROS invasion and VDC develops, eventually leading to significant vision loss as you become older.
However fear not, declares. Dr Shelton. He apparently had you in mind when he buried himself into medical research to find you a ‘natural’ way to boost your VDC and improve your vision. Eventually, his research paid off as he finally discovered a flower that contains two compounds: Lutein and Zeaxanthin. These compounds are actually VDCs that will get rid of the ROS toxins and restore your vision. So he added them to Vision 20.
This is just the beginning of Dr Shelton’t valiant effort to save your vision. He also found and blended 9 other ingredients which research has shown improve eyesight. Let’s discuss them in the net section, shall we?
Ingredients of Vision 20
The 3 active ingredients of Vision 20 include the following:
The remaining 7 ingredients, which Dr Shelton says will ‘protect against dangerous toxins, and support your eyesight no matter your age’, include:
- Rose hips
- Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate
- Grape Seed Extract
- Bilberry Extract
As usual, Dr Shelton dedicated a significant chunk of his presentation to using scientific studies to back up his ingredients’ ability to protect your sight. But I’m not going to waste my time talking about it any further because there’s no point. You’ll see why as we’ll now talk about the reasons why Vision 20 is a scam!
1. Dr Ryan Shelton is Untrustworthy
I have discussed in detail why we can’t trust Dr Ryan Shelton, ‘NMD’ in my review of his supplement Zenith Hearing X3. Basically, Dr Shelton is a phony who has been caught posing as a MD (medical doctor) when he’s not. Plus, he’s the mastermind behind Spark Health Media, the now-defunct company behind some of the most popular health scams on the web. Check out the details over at my Zenith Hearing X3 review.
2. Zenith Labs is the Successor of Spark Health Media
Again, I’ve covered this in detail in my Zenith Hearing X3 review. One thing I want to highlight though is that Zenith Labs’ claim that their facility is ‘NSF certified.’ Well the truth is, NSF itself has denied this, and you can see the proof in the aforementioned review.
3. Fake Testimonials With Stock Videos
Now unlike his other scams Zenith Hearing X3 and Soundquility, Dr Ryan Shelton littered his video presentation with a slew of video testimonials. These testimonials are actually videos placed precisely at the point where their name is mentioned in the review so there’s no doubt that the videos are meant as testimonials. But unfortunately for Dr Shelton and Zenith Labs, Contra Health Scam is here to expose these testimonials as mere stock videos!
- ‘Arden Cogar’ is actually a stock video you can buy at Storyblocks;
- ‘Carolina D’ is a stock video from Dreamstime;
- ‘Chris Lee’ is a stock video from Envato Market;
- ‘Edward White’ is a stock video bought from Shutterstock;
- ‘Pilot Bernard Blair’ is actually a stock video bought from Storyblocks;
- ‘Robert Wood’ is a stock video from Shutterstock. This video was also used as a testimonial.
To further show you how fake these testimonials are, Dr Shelton provided us with photos of ‘Edward White’ and ‘Carolina D.’ But compare those photos with their supposed video testimonials, and you’ll see that they are not the same people!
4. Vision 20 is the Reincarnation of Outback Vision Protocol
Outback Vision Protocol was the eye health scam of Spark Health Media, which went down along with the company. But now it has reincarnated as Vision 20.
How did you know this, you may ask? I know this because like I stated above, Dr Shelton was the mastermind behind Spark Health Media, and Vision 20 is sharing the same scientific basis as Outback Vision Protocol: Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
Over at Outback Vision Protocol, you can see that the scientific basis is on the effects of lutein and zeaxanthin in stopping and reversing age-related macular degeneration. I thoroughly debunked this claim in my review, and apparently Dr Shelton learned his lesson. That’s why in Vision 20, he tweaked his scientific basis by no longer claiming that the two compounds reverse macular degeneration. Instead, he’s claiming that they just fight ROS toxins and protect your eyes from damage.
Well nice try Dr Shelton, but no matter how many times you wash a pig, it always returns to the mud!
Final Conclusion: DON’T BUY Vision 20 by Zenith Labs. It is A SCAM!
Don’t let Dr Shelton scare you by his claim that your vision decreasing by age 40 is always abnormal. The truth is that your vision naturally reduces from age 40 – a phenomenon known as presbyopia – and eventually stabilizes. All you need to combat this is to either do nothing or get yourself some reading glasses or see an optometrist/ophthalmologist. Don’t fall for petty scams like this!
If you’ve made the mistake of buying this supplement, simply file a credit card dispute with your provider if Zenith Labs refuses to refund you. I can’t confidently tell you that they will honor their ‘6 months’ moneyback guarantee.
