The benefits that it offers. Cyanidin 3-glucoside (C3G) is a natural pigment and is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Saffron is used to boost mood, improve memory and also for those with age-related macular degeneration(AMD). Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that improves the way the immune system functions. Good for eyes, liver and brain and many more. Lutein and zeaxanthin (and meso-zeaxanthin) act as protective antioxidants in the eye. The retina is the most metabolically active tissue in the body, and this exceptionally high metabolic rate results in a large quantity of potentially damaging oxidative by-products. In offering my eyes even better nutrition and care, I took it with Life Extension Super Omega-3 Plus & another eye supplement containing Vitamin C, E, Copper & Zinc. Do take this product with a high fat meal(assorted nuts, EVCO or EVOO) to better absorp the fat-soluble astaxanthin.

I am excited to see Astaxanthin as one of the ingredients. I have just started taking it, I guess it will take a while to feel the effects. I am very concerned about the pill/capsule/softgel size of the supplement I get. This one works for me. It's about 1.4cm in length. And only have to take 1 softgel per day. For those of you concerned about the size, you may refer to the photo. I really hope the size of the pill size can be included as part of the product descriptions. That will be really helpful. Packaging seems like good quality. 2 months later: So far I have yet to see any result.

My wife (in her mid-fifties) does a lot of close work as a tutor and suffers easily from tired eyes. She has tried two or three different supplements to help her eyes. This was one of the first we tried. Then we tried a couple of others that were a little cheaper. But she has noticed a real difference when she uses the Life Extension MacuGuard with the Saffron and Astaxanthin. She won't use anything else now. They're definitely worth the price.

I play computer games. I was getting heavy after images of grids or other from the games. Similar to dots one see after a flash or looking at the sun. After using Macuguard for a few weeks the images are gone. At first they just faded faster. Now not getting them at all. WOW nice when something works.

Bought it to expand the number of eyesight supplements I already take individually such as lutein, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin with the additional benefits of black currant extract and saffron. This will be my go to eyesight supplement binging several products into one pill. Life Extension is one of the best supplement manufacturers I buy from via Iherb and I trust them.

I have been taking this for a while now. My eye specialist says take your eye vitamins. I take this from his office. Plus I’ve added this as it has saffron ingredient which is good for macular. I trust the quality of Life Extension. The blue bottle can’t be missed. I’m looking forward to see if my eye specialist notices any difference.

I really feel this has improved my vision, reduced blur and sharpened my focus and I can really feel when I haven't taken it. Astaxanthin is found in a good quantity and it's great for so many things and claimed to be 6000 times better than vit C so it's not only good for eye health. I also like that it's made from algae and not krill, so it's a much more sustainable source. To me the other ingredients are a bonus. It's just a pity it's so expensive! The price jumped over $10 in just a month!

I have been taking this for a little while and seem to notice a difference. I like the fact that it has some of the supplements in it that many of the super stores vitamins do not have - such as Natural Astaxanthin, meso & trans zeaxanthin, and saffron. It comes in different strength capsules also. I will continue taking (I ran out once and did notice a difference while not taking it that my vision was more strained and blurry) and hope to see continued improvement

Macu-Guard contains most of the stuff that is supposed to be good your the eyes except Retinol (Vitamin A) - which I would supplement as an individual extra, depending on Vitamin D & K consuption and genetic factors - see also the book "Healing the Eye the Natural Way Alternate Medicine and Macular Degeneration" by Edward C. Kondrot for references. Also the 6 mg Astaxanthin in this capsuls are nearly worth the price alone - and save me the effort to take another capsule. LEF is also a brand I thrust quite much - as they have a long history and back up their products with scientific research studies.

my husband uses those for his eyes. This was recommended by a MD and together with Ubiquinol and some general vitamins and minerals (D3, C and Magnesium) it has helped him to retain good eye health, despite of previous deterioration. Thanks to LE Foundation and iHerb for making this possible!
