- Rich in highly antioxidant components (lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin);
- Helps prevent ARM and cataracts;
- Relieves eye strain caused by computer screens and artificial lighting;
- Ensures optimal nutrition for the macula.
Optimal vision is an essential element of good health at any age. The macula, which is located behind the lens, enables detailed vision and colour differentiation. The new Macula Plus formulation in softgels combines all the ingredients necessary for optimal eye nutrition and protection and offers enhanced absorption, stability and bioavailability.
Lutein, zeaxanthin and its stereo-isomer, mesozeaxanthin, principally make up the pigment that covers the macular area of the eye. These three antioxidant carotenoids, present in equal amounts in the centre of the retina, filter blue light and protect the photoreceptors from oxidative damage. Macular pigment density varies from one person to another, diminishing as we age, but regular supplementation can help maintain it.
Lutein is part of the xanthophyll family of pigments. Modern diets rarely provide more than 2mg a day, although doses 5 to 10 times higher than this are often judged to be necessary. Zeaxanthin and mesozeaxanthin are produced in the retina from lutein but this conversion occurs less frequently with age and thus levels fall. Supplementation curbs this decrease and significantly increases macular pigment density. Levels of lutein, zeaxanthin and mesozeaxanthin are lower in the eyes of individuals with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
This new formulation, based on the latest scientific research, ensures optimal nutrition for the macula and maintains long-term healthy vision.
