Why Is Macushield Important?
Macushield is a natural food supplement that prevents and/or slows the progress of Macular Degeneration. Age related macular degeneration is a medical condition which usually affects older adults that results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field (the macula) because of damage to the retina.
It occurs in “dry” and “wet” forms. It is a major cause of visual impairment in older adults (>50 years). Macular degeneration can make it difficult or impossible to read or recognize faces, although enough peripheral vision remains to allow other activities of daily life.
What Does Macushield Do?
Macushield is a Meso-Zeaxanthin, Zeaxathin and Lutein food supplement that supports and maintains Eye Health. Scientists have long known that the yellow colour, or pigment, inside the macula comes from three cartenoids: lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin. These plant compounds help protect the eye by absorbing blue light, which is present in regular sunlight, as well as in offices (computer screens generate blue light). They also neutralise free radicals, which damage the cells required for vision in the eye. Free radicals come from smoking, pollution, poisons, fried foods and most importantly from blue light and oxygen metabolism.
