The Macushield patented blend brings together all three of these carotenoids.
- Meso-zeaxanthin is not found in a typical diet (although it is found in unusual foods, such as shrimps and oysters), but is uniquely important for macular health. The body normally converts lutein to meso-zeaxanthin in the retina. Meso-zeaxanthin is only found at the centre of the macula, where vision is sharpest. Its presence results in the filtration of a wider range of damaging blue light and also acts as powerful antioxiant at the macula.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
Found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, lutein and zeaxanthin are also antioxidants and are capable of filtering blue light.
New scientific research has found that supplementing with all 3 yellow carotenoids - meso-zeaxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin - has resulted in the eye taking up these vital compounds, and macular pigment levels being sustained.
This new formula, now in a sunflower oil softgel capsule, is designed to transport these important compounds around the body, thus making it easier to get to the part of the eye where it is required.
Take one softgel capsule daily, preferably with a meal.
