Carotenoid Blend of Zeaxanthin, Lutein, C3G, Meso-Zeaxanthin Plus Astaxanthin

MacuGuard Ocular Support with Astaxanthin

Lutein is one of the major components of macular pigment and it is essential to proper vision. Eating large quantities of lutein and zeaxanthin-containing vegetables can help provide the nutritional building blocks necessary to maintain the structural integrity of the macula. It’s difficult, however, to increase systemic circulation of these important nutrients through food alone. Now there is an easier way to bolster your eye integrity.

MacuGuard Ocular Support contains phospholipids, which are an integral part of the cell membrane. In addition to mixing well with other important fat-soluble components of the eye such as lutein, phospholipids have been shown to help support efficient absorption of dietary lutein in the blood stream as well.

Phospholipids have been shown in scientific research to improve systemic circulation and accumulations of lutein in the retina of the eyes, making them a potent all-around weapon in your arsenal for eye health.

MacuGuard Ocular Support offers triple eye protection:

  • Supports concentration of lutein in the eye.
  • Supports efficient absorption of lutein in the blood stream.
  • Phospholipids enhance lutein in the cell membrane.
  • Supports zeaxanthin concentrations in eye.
  • Provides meso-zeaxanthin which is difficult to obtain from dietary sources.

This formula provides ingredients that have been shown to protect healthy eyesight. Each capsule contains MacuGuard carotenoid phospholipid blend, which provides phospholipids, lutein, meso-zeaxanthin and trans-zeaxanthin, along with cyanidin-3-glucoside (C3G) from European black currant extract. The formula also contains astaxanthin, which when taken with other carotenoids has been shown to protect against free radical-induced DNA damage and may play a protective role against eye fatigue.

Suggested Use

Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.

Take one (1) softgel daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.

Based on scientific studies, this formula is enhanced with phospholipids to increase lutein absorption.

Other Ingredients

Soy lecithin, gelatin, safflower oil, extra virgin olive oil, glycerin, sunflower, soy fatty acids, purified water, beeswax, potato maltodextrin, annatto color.

Absolutely Great Product

Posted by Reviewer1967089 on Nov 19, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I have used this product for sometime and like it very much. However, I got two of my friends on it and within 10-14 days they were both telling me how much better their vision was. Both are absolutely raving about the difference in night vision and regular all around vision. For them, it seems almost a miracle. I have made them very happy!

Other Ingredients !!

Good: GREAT Value! Astaxanthin 6 mg, MESO-Zeaxanthin = GOOD, Lutein. BAD: Annatto color MAY cause allergies, but I believe the risk from Capsule or Tablet is small. Among 61 consecutive patients suffereing from chornic urticaria and/or angioneurotic oedema 56 patients were orally provoked by annatto extract during elimination diet. Same thing with Beeswax, probably OK from a capsule.

Regularly taking for beginning cataracts, but they're worsening

Posted by Reviewer2631717 on Aug 08, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I bought this to combine 2 pills in one: Zeaxanthin with Astaxanthin. So far have noticed only worsening of my eyesight. My eye doctor said Zeaxanthin is the only thing that "supposedly" actually reverses catarachs, "Forget about Lutein", he said. However, my beginning cataracts are getting worse. Perhaps it will work for someone else. The price is on the same level as other manufacturers - equally expensive, and sold in meagre bottles. But us desperates will buy! I looked at iHerb's Mercola Eye Support and noticed that it has 50mg Anthrocyanis vs this one's 5mg. 50 was the dose used in research. I will try Mercola's. It better be worth the exorbitant price!! But my eyes are worsening, so anything would be worth it. Update: After finishing 2 bottles of Mercola's I have NOT noticed anything. So it must be my eyes, not the products?
