Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common condition that affects the middle part of your vision. It usually first affects people in their 50s and 60s.
According to the NHS, without treatment, your vision may get worse. This can happen gradually over several years ("dry AMD"), or quickly over a few weeks or months ("wet AMD"). It does not cause total blindness, but it can make everyday activities like reading, writing, driving and even recognising faces difficult.
Taking care of your eye macula
As we grow older our eye health comes under increasing pressure, and in particular the macula. The macula is an oval shaped pigmented area near the central retina, which protects the light sensitive cells in the back of the eye. The macula is responsible for the clarity of central vision.
The macula pigment comprises of three carotenoids, Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin and Zeaxanthin. The body does not produce Lutein and Zeaxanthin. The macular pigment can therefore become severely depleted in those with a poor diet lacking in the right foods.
What's in a Macu-Save Capsule?
MACU-SAVE® is an eye food supplement which contains the most popular formulation of all three essential macular carotenoids Meso-Zeaxanthin, Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Research shows that these three nutrients are found at the back of the eye, at the macula, where they form the macular pigment.
Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin
Lutein and Zeaxanthin can be found in fruits and dark green leafy vegetables which form part of our normal diet. Meso-Zeaxanthin is present in some species of fish organs such as trout skin and shrimp but does not form part of our normal diet. Meso-Zeaxanthin is the most powerful of the macular carotenoids.
MACU-SAVE® contains ALL three key macular carotenoids:
10mg Meso-Zeaxanthin, 10mg Lutein and 2mg Zeaxanthin.
Most Opticians, Opthalmologists and eye health professionals would recommend the 10,10,2 formula.
Contains the proven formula as seen on BBC’s ‘TRUST ME I’M A DOCTOR’.
The carotenoids in MACU-SAVE® are of the highest quality grade and are obtained from marigolds (Tagetes Erecta).
Available from selected stores in Superdrug, Savers, Well Pharmacy, Opticians, Health food stores and Pharmacies everywhere.
