MacuGuard Ocular Support
Carotenoids: Eye-friendly Nutrients
Carotenoids are a class of phytonutrients (plant chemicals) that are obtained from diet or supplements. Eating foods or taking supplements that contain carotenoids can offer a wide range of health benefits. For instance: the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are the main pigments in the macular portion of the eye’s retina.
Carotenoid antioxidants: essential nutrients for your eyes
The nutrients our eyes need are often hard to come by – and our bodies sometimes lose the ability to synthesise them as we age. For instance: carotenoid nutrients such as lutein and specific forms of zeaxanthin make up your macular pigment. This part of your retina protects underlying photoreceptor cells from the harmful effects of excess blue and ultraviolet light.
Macular pigment density: vital for healthy vision
Because of this, the density of your macular pigment is essential to healthy vision. Unfortunately, this density naturally declines with age, and some of us lose the ability to synthesizer meso-zeaxanthin from lutein over time. That’s why this formula contains lutein as well as trans-zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin, which are difficult to get from diet alone. In addition, alpha-carotene has been added based on new evidence that it helps support the macular pigment.
Astaxanthin: fight eye fatigue
When taken with other carotenoids, astaxanthin has been shown to promote DNA function, rejuvenate UVA-irradiated cells, and inhibit inflammatory cell infiltration. Astaxanthin also helps support vascular health within the eye and improves visual acuity. Astaxanthin may play a protective role against eye fatigue. Human clinical trials by Japanese scientists demonstrated that astaxanthin is effective in reducing bleary-eye feeling, a tendency toward irritation, and supporting ocular health.
Phospholipids for lutein: absorption, concentration and circulation
Getting these eye-healthy nutrients to where you need them most is a huge part of supporting your vision health. This formula contains phospholipids, which mix well with lutein and are an integral part of the cell membrane. Phospholipids have also been shown to support lutein absorption and improve the circulation and accumulation of lutein within the retina as well.
Nutrition for night vision: C3G berry flavonoids
MacuGuard® Ocular Support with Saffron & Astaxanthin also contains a cutting-edge flavonoid derived from European black currant berry extract. Cyanidin-3-glucoside encourages the regeneration of rhodopsin, a retinal compound which absorbs light. Age-related decline of rhodopsin is associated with the loss of night vision – so this nutrient helps older eyes see better at night.
Vision-enhancing benefits of saffron
This formula also includes the optimal dose of saffron along with cyanidin-3-glucoside to support healthy vision. People supplementing with saffron showed an improvement in vision as measured by them seeing an average of two additional lines on the Snellen eye chart commonly used by doctors to test vision.
