MacuHealth – optomize your eye health and performance

The macula, the area in the retina responsible for detailed central vision and color vision, contains yellow pigment known as macular pigment (MP).  MP is composed of three carotenoids: lutein,  zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin.  They are important in providing optimal visual performance and has blue light filtering properties which is essential in protection against macular disease.  A deficiency in MP results in poor visual function and has also been associated with people who have age-related macular degeneration.

So, how can we restore MP?  The best way to obtain these nutrients for the eyes is through our diet.  Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in leafy, green vegetables like kale and spinach, and colorful fruits including goji berries.  Unfortunately, a lot of today’s processed foods lack the nutrients we require to maximize MP.  Unlike lutein and zeaxanthin, meso-zeaxanthin cannot be obtained through diet; recent research suggests it is produced in the retina from lutein.

Fortunately, there are supplements that we can take to restore MP.  MacuHealth is a unique dietary supplement with all three macular carotenoids.  This all-natural and gluten-free supplement is clinically proven to replenish MP, which will enhance visual performance including contrast in low light settings and may reduce risk of central vision loss from AMD.
