MacuShield is a supplement we sell for those at risk of or who have been diagnosed with AMD - age related macular degeneration.
Key ingredients in MacuShield are lutein and zeaxanthin. It’s true that lutein and zeaxanthin can be found in certain foods such as dark, leafy vegetables and citrus fruits, but you would need to consume large amounts to give the level of these nutrients an effective boost.
Fortunately, there is another option – MacuShield supplements. Studies have shown that taking supplements with lutein and zeaxanthin can slow the progression of conditions like macular degeneration and keep vision optimized for longer.
MacuShield is an effective supplement that contains all of the pigments found in the macula – lutein, zeaxanthin and mesa-zeaxanthin. MacuShield supplements have been especially designed to contain the correct daily intake of these nutrients/pigments, enabling you to quickly and easily raise your macula pigment to optimum levels. At the same time, the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nature of the nutrients will also protect against oxidative stress.
