Macular Degeneration news.....

MacuHealth with LMZ3

We've recently started to carry MacuHealth, a carotinoid supplement for patients with macular degeneration, or who may be at family risk of developing macular degeneration. MacuHealth with LMZ3 is a unique and patented formulation specifically designed to rebuild and maximize macular pigment over a lifetime. Containing all three critical carotenoids in a patented 10:10:2 ratio, MacuHealth with LMZ3 is proven through peer-reviewed research to quickly and effectively rebuild macular pigment.

MacuHealth is a once a day caplet and is now available at our office.

Specially formulated to promote a healthy macular pigment and support your eyesight throughout your life.

A Healthy Diet is essential to maintain a healthy macula (the macula is the "bull's eye target" of the retina). Macular pigment consists of three (3) dietary nutrients – Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin. Nature gives us the ability to selectively accumulate these three nutrients at the very center of the retina.  In other words, where vision is sharpest and where color is processed. Unfortunately, today’s processed foods lack the nutrients required to maximize macular pigment. Because of this, supplementation is now believed to be the best way to protect your macula. Replenishing macular pigment helps protect the macula (central retina) from disease, in addition to optimizing visual performance.

Restores Macular Pigment –

Exposure to high energy blue light increases oxidative stress on the retina, which over time can lead to Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). MacuHealth helps nature restore macular pigment to optimum levels, and may protect against AMD because of the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nature of the three nutrients.

Improves Visual Performance –

Visible blue light has a negative effect on the quality of the optical image formed at the retina. In fact, shorter blue light wavelengths scatter more than other wavelengths, thereby resulting in Glare, Chromatic Aberration, and Light Scatter. Consequently, these conditions contribute to loss of visual acuity. Macular pigment selectively filters out damaging and image-degrading visible blue light.

Critical Carotenoids

MacuHealth with LMZ3 is the only dietary supplement containing all three (3) critical nutrients, Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin and Zeaxanthin in the same 10:10:2 ratio that makes up macular pigment. Taken once a day, this small, easy-to-swallow soft gel is clinically proven to restore macular pigments to normal levels, resulting in enhanced vision and aid in the prevention of age-related macular degeneration. Studies have shown that the LMZ3 formulation is more effective than almost all other multi-vitamin supplements containing Lutein that are currently available.
