What is MacuShield?

MacuShield is a unique carotenoid eye supplement tested at leading research institutions and endorsed by eye care professionals…
Scientists have long known that the yellow colour, or pigment, inside the macular comes from the carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin and believe these plant compounds help protect the eye by absorbing blue light and neutralising free radicals.


What is Macular Pigment and why is it so important?

There is an important and naturally occurring pigment at the back of the eye, called  Macular Pigment. This pigment is made up of 3 dietary compounds, Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-zeaxanthin.
Macular pigment is yellow in colour and absorbs UV and harmful blue light.


What are the roles of Lutein and Zeaxanthin?

Lutein and zeaxanthin are dietary carotenoids that filter damaging high-energy blue wavelength light from the visible-light spectrum by as much as 90%. Lutein and zeaxanthin are antioxidants and therefore protect against the damage caused by free radicals.


What is Meso-Zeaxanthin and why is it so important for the Macular?

Meso-zeaxanthin is the 3rd component of the macular pigment and is only found at the centre where vision is sharpest. Meso-zeaxanthin is obtained by the conversion of lutein to meso-zeaxanthin in the macula. It is not found in a typical diet but is found in shrimps and certain fish types like halibut, salmon and sea bass.
Meso-zeaxanthin is being recognised as a more powerful neutralizer of free radicals than either lutein or zeaxanthin. Meso-Zeaxanthin neutralise the free radicals that can damage the macula area.


What is the formulation of MacuShield?

This formula combines powerful antioxidants that help protect tissues against potentially damaging effects of free radicals and is designed specially to support macular health.


What are the ingredients in MacuShield?

What dosage is of Macushield that is recommended?

Are there any side effects or contra-indications for taking MacuShield?

As MacuShield is a natural product there are no contra – indications however pregnant or lactating women should consult a doctor before using it.


Is there any research to confirm Macushield helps with AMD?

Research shows the yellow colour in a healthy macula originates from the carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin.
These plant compounds help to protect the eye by absorbing damaging blue light and neutralising free radicals.
Recent research supports the vital role that meso-zeaxanthin plays in helping maintain eye health.
A clinical trials showed that 100% of patients, with and without AMD, responded positively to Meso-Zeaxanthin by increasing their macular pigment.
In the trial, after taking supplements containing Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso – Zeaxanthin for only 8 weeks all patients were able to rebuild their pigment profile to normal levels.


What’s the difference between Macushield and other supplements?

The best protection is believed to supplement the naturally occurring protective macular pigments found in healthy eyes. These pigments are yellow in colour and accumulate at the ‘yellow spot’ around the macula. There are known to be three of these; lutein, zeaxanthin (both come in from a good healthy diet) and meso-zeaxanthin (which is NOT present in your normal diet). Most proprietary supplements do not contain meso-xeaxanthin. It is now believed that some people’s metabolism cannot efficiently convert lutien into meso-zeaxanthin and they are the people who are more at risk to AMD.  Macushield is the only supplement that contains all three macular pigments.


Are there any case studies where MacuShield has helped?
