How MacuGuard works?
Lutein and zeaxanthin are yellow carotenoids (pigments) found in marigold flower, green leafy vegetables and eggs. In nature, carotenoids protect plants from too much sunlight. Without this protection, plants would burn up under the sun. In the same way, when you consume lutein and zeaxanthin from foods or supplements, it protects your eye tissues from sun damage.
In the human eye, lutein and zeaxanthin are naturally found in high concentrations in the macula and lens area. In the macula, lutein and zeaxanthin naturally form a layer of yellow pigments called the macular pigments, which serves as an effective natural filter of the harmful blue light that reaches the retina. Studies shown supplementation with lutein and zeaxanthin helps increase the density of the macular pigments. Higher macular pigment density is associated with healthier eyes and the retention of youthful visual sensitivity.
In addition, lutein and zeaxanthin also function as antioxidants and may help slow down age-related eye problems by decreasing oxidative damage to the retina and lens. Lutein and zeaxanthin have also been found to protect skin from harmful UV damage, thereby may play a role in the prevention of aging skin conditions such as age spots, pigments and wrinkles.
MacuGuard also contains antioxidants such as Betacarotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Selenium and Zinc.
