MacuShield is a lutein (10 mg), zeaxanthin (2 mg) and meso-zeaxanthin (10 mg) once-a-day food supplement which combines all three macula carotenoids in a unique formula.
Research shows that these three nutrients are found at the back of the eye, at the macula, where they form the macula pigment (yellow colour). Meso-zeaxanthin is particularly concentrated at the centre of this pigment. The macula is a specialist parts of the eye that is responsible for our detailed, central vision.
Lutein and zeaxanthin can be found in fruits and dark green leafy vegetables and meso-zeaxanthin is present in some species of fish and seafood. The macula pigments in MacuShield are obtained from marigolds (Tagetus Erecta), specifically grown for this purpose.
