MacuShield is now the UK’s most recommended eye supplement
9th Sep 2016
MacuShield is a once a day, easy to take, food supplement which combines all three macular carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin, in a formula developed in collaboration with leading eye health experts.
Scientific research shows that these three nutrients are found at the back of the eye, at the macula, where they form the, yellow in colour, macula pigment. Particular concentrated at the centre of this pigment is meso-zeaxanthin. The macula is a specialist part of the eye that is responsible for detailed, central vision
Lutein, zexanthin and meso-zeaxanthin can be obtained by the human body from nutrition and diet. They are found in fruits and dark leafy green vegetables and meso-zeaxanthin is present in some species of fish and seafood. The macula pigments in MacuShield are obtained from marigolds, specifically grown for this purpose.
Also available in the range is MacuShield Gold, which provides a fortified MacuShield formulation with added vitamins and minerals. MacuShield Gold combines all three macular carotenoids in a unique formula in addition to zinc to help maintain normal vision, copper, vitamin C and a natural form of vitamin E, which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
MacuShield is taken once a day and MacuShield Gold is taken 3 times daily. Both products are available from most opticians and pharmacies.
