MacuCap®AMD provides a fortified MacuShield 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 and meso-zeaxanthin is present in some species of fish and seafood. The macular pigments in MacuShield are obtained from marigolds (Tagetus Erecta), specifically grown for this purpose.
MacuCap®AMD combines these three macular carotenoids in a unique formula containing meso-zeaxanthin, in addition to zinc to help maintain normal vision, copper, vitamin C and a natural form of vitamin E, which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Studies in Europe and the US have proven that a triple macular carotenoid supplement in combination with the AREDS-2 formulation provides greatest benefits for AMD patients. A combination of these three nutrients results in a faster accumulation and thus better protection and better functionality of the eye. Please see the full article online or as PDF
