MacuGuard® Ocular Support provides lutein, trans-zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin, three important nutrients that protect the delicate photoreceptor cells in the retina’s macula from light damage. This innovative formula also contains C3G (Cyanidin-3-glucoside), a cutting-edge berry flavonoid compound that helps stimulate regeneration of rhodopsin, a compound in the eyes that absorbs light in the retina to help support night vision.
Benefits at a Glance
Carotenoid antioxidants: essential nutrients for your eyes
The nutrients our eyes need are often hard to come by — and our bodies sometimes lose the ability to synthesize them as we age. For instance: carotenoid nutrients such as lutein and specific forms of zeaxanthin make up your macular pigment. This part of your retina protects underlying photoreceptor cells from the harmful effects of excess blue and ultraviolet light.1-3
Macular pigment density: vital for healthy vision
Because of this, the density of your macular pigment is essential to healthy vision.4,5 Unfortunately, this density naturally declines with age, and some of us lose the ability to synthesize meso-zeaxanthin from lutein over time. That’s why this formula contains lutein as well as trans-zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin, which are difficult to get from diet alone.
Phospholipids for lutein: absorption, concentration and circulation
Getting these eye-healthy nutrients to where you need them most is a huge part of supporting your vision health. This formula contains phospholipids, which mix well with lutein and are an integral part of the cell membrane. Phospholipids have also been shown to support lutein6-11absorption and improve the circulation and accumulation of lutein within the retina as well.10,11
Nutrition for night vision: C3G berry flavonoids
MacuGuard® Ocular Support also contains a cutting-edge flavonoid derived from European black currant berry extract. Cyanidin-3-glucoside (C3G for short) encourages the regeneration of rhodopsin, a retinal compound which absorbs light. Age-related decline of rhodopsin is associated with the loss of night vision — so this nutrient helps older eyes see better at night.
