MacuCap®AMD provides a fortified MacuCap-formulation with added vitamins and minerals for the dietary treatment of late age-related macular degeneration.
Scientific research shows that the three nutrients; meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin 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 specialised parts of the eye, responsible for a central detailed vision.
Lutein and zeaxanthin can be found in fruits and vegetables. Meso-zeaxanthin is present in some species of fish and seafood. The macular pigments in MacuCap®AMD carotenoids are obtained from marigolds (Tagetes erecta), specifically grown for this purpose.
MacuCap®AMD combines these three macular carotenoids with zinc, copper, vitamin C and vitamin E, which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
