Healthy vision is a crucial part of ensuring quality of life as we age. MacuGuard™ Ocular Support with Astaxanthin combines ingredients that have been shown to protect eye health in an absorption-enhanced formula.
Carotenoids: essential nutrients for your eyes
The nutrients our eyes need are often hard to obtain in sufficient quantities from food alone. For instance: carotenoid nutrients found in vegetables such as lutein and specific forms of zeaxanthin make up our macular pigment which is essential to healthy eyesight. This part of the retina protects underlying lightsensing cells from damage by excess blue and ultraviolet light. Unfortunately, the density of the macular pigment naturally declines with age, and some of us lose the ability to produce meso-zeaxanthin from lutein over time. That’s why MacuGuard™ Ocular Support with Astaxanthin contains lutein as well as trans-zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin along with phospholipids for increased absorption and accumulation within the retina. In addition, alpha-carotene has been added based on new evidence that it helps support the macular pigment.
MacuGuard™ Ocular Support with Astaxanthin also contains astaxanthin. The potent antioxidant which crosses the blood-eye barrier has been shown to counteract free radical damage, support vascular health within the eyes and may play a protective role against eye fatigue.
Nutrition for healthy vision: saffron and C3G
MacuGuard™ Ocular Support includes an optimal dose of saffron along with C3G (Cyanidin-3-glucoside) to support healthy vision. C3G from European black currant extract encourages the regeneration of the retinal compound rhodopsin thereby helping older eyes see better at night while supplementing with saffron extract has been shown to improve vision.
