What is Macular Pigment ?
Macular Pigment is a yellow pigment in the macula region of the retina
- The pigment filters harmful blue light, which can contribute to Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
- The pigment enhances visual performance and makes vision sharper
- The pigment is an antioxidant which prevents free-radical damage. Free-radical damage is also strongly believed to contribute to AMD.
What is Macular Pigments Role in Preventing Macular Degeneration ?
Light is filtered by Macular Pigments before being passed to the more sensitive retinal layers below it.
The sensitive retinal layers are damaged by among other things blue light.
Damage to the sensitive lower layers contributes to both Wet and Dry macular degeneration
If Macular Pigment levels are reduced, less light is filtered and more is let through to cause potential damage
Boosting Macular Pigment levels can help protect against Age Related Macular degeneration.
How do I Boost Macular Pigment Levels ?
Meso-Zeaxanthin, Lutein and Zeaxanthin are the building blocks of Macular Pigment.
Lutein and zeaxanthin cannot be made in the body and have to come solely from the foods we eat.
Meso-zeaxanthin is made in the retina from lutein, however it is thought that some people are unable to do this
Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in leafy green vegetables and fruits. Eating these foods is beneficial, however even in those with good diets, it is difficult to get the necessary level of nutrients the eyes need.
That's why regular supplementation is recommended for optimum eye health.
MacuShield is the ONLY supplement that contains Meso-Zeaxanthin. It also contains Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
A recent study from the US showed that the antioxidant properties of macular pigment is enhanced when meso-zeaxanthin is present.
