Comprehensive Eye Health Support with MacuGuard
MacuGuard Ocular Support with Saffron from Life Extension features a synergistic blend of key eye-care nutrients, including lutein, zeaxanthin, meso-zeaxanthin and cyaniding-3-glucoside (C3G, from black currant extract).
Carotenoids are antioxidant pigments found naturally in many vegetables - such as carrots - and are necessary for maintaining normal eye health. They can help filter out excess blue and ultraviolet rays and help protect the macula - a yellow spot on the retina which is naturally composed of the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin.
As we age, our bodies may need more of these antioxidants to maintain eye health. While carotenoids, including lutein and zeaxanthin, are found in many foods, meso-zeaxanthin isn't easy to get in large quantities through diet alone and may be crucial when it comes to supporting macular health.
Because carotenoids are fat soluble, this supplement includes phospholipids, which are important for maintaining cell membrane health and aiding absorption and systemic circulation of lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin.
- Features lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin from marigold extract
- May support lutein & zeaxanthin concentration in the eyes
- May help support normal eye health, especially macular health
- Includes phospholipids for improved utilization and concentration of lutein and zeaxanthin
- Includes meso-zeaxanthin , which may provide more complete carotenoid support for macular health
- Contains C3G from black currant extract - cyaniding-3-glucoside, an antioxidant pigment found in dark fruits that may help support normal night vision
Suggested Use for MacuGuard Ocular Support:
You might never think about your macula -you can't feel it and ironically, can't see it, but that tiny yellow dot at the back of your eye is absolutely necessary for normal central vision. Maintaining macular health becomes much more important as we age, but it doesn't have to be difficult.
Getting ocular antioxidant support is simple with this supplement, which combines lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin with phospholipids and black currant extract for the potent, comprehensive eye health support.
