MacuShield® is a unique formulation of macular pigment carotenoids consisting of  Lutein  and Zeaxanthin, it also, and distinctively, contains Meso-Zeaxanthin (meso-z).

Indeed, there is a growing and compelling body of evidence that a lack of this macular pigment in the eye increases an individual’s risk for developing AMD, and that appropriate supplements reduce one’s risk of this condition.

Recent clinical trials have proved:

  • Meso-zeaxanthin significantly increases central macular pigment in patients with AMD (Connolly et al. Current Eye Research 2010)1) – MOST study
  • Meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin collectively are the strongest antioxidants in the retina (Li et al, Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2010).
  • Macular pigment augmentation following carotenoid supplementation improves visual performance (e.g. contrast sensitivity) and experience (by reducing the effects of glare) – COMPASS trial
