We’d be very impressed if you can pronounce ‘Meso-Zeaxanthin’ on your first try.
Have you seen the MacuShield® TV advert where the professional voiceover artist has a little trouble?

What is MacuShield®?

MacuShield is a dietary supplement that combines the three macular carotenoids:

  • Lutein (10mg)
  • Meso-zeaxanthin (10mg)
  • Zeaxanthin (2mg)

This formula of macular carotenoids has been developed in collaboration with leading eye experts. Scientific research shows that they are found at the back of the eye, at the macula, where they form the macular pigment (yellow colour). Meso-zeaxanthin is particularly concentrated at the centre of this pigment.

The macular carotenoids in MacuShield are obtained from marigolds (Tagetes Erecta), specifically grown for this purpose.

Formula containing all three macular carotenoids

Lutein

A natural carotenoid entirely of dietary origin, which accumulates at the macula at the back of the eye. Lutein is most commonly found in dark green, leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale or peas.

Meso-zeaxanthin

The most central carotenoid found at the epicentre of the macula. Meso-zeaxanthin is naturally occurring in the human food chain, found in several species of fish to date.

Zeaxanthin

A natural carotenoid entirely of dietary origin, which accumulates at the macula at the back of the eye. Zeaxanthin is commonly found in brightly coloured fruit and vegetables such as peppers and sweetcorn.

MacuShield® Gold

What are the differences between MacuShield Gold and MacuShield?

MacuShield and MacuShield Gold both contain the three macular carotenoids. However, the MacuShield Gold capsules also contain a blend of high dose vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc to help maintain normal vision, and copper. MacuShield is a one-a-day food supplement, and MacuShield Gold is three capsules daily.
