Scientists have long known that the Yellow colour, or pigment, inside the Macularcomes from Three cartenoids, Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin. These plant compounds help protect the eye by absorbing Blue light which is present in regular sunlightas well as in offices (computer screens generate Blue light). They also neutralise free radicals which damage the cells of the eye. Free radicals come from Smoking, Pollution, Poisons, Fried Foods and as a by product of Oxygen metabolism. Because the Macular is Yellow in colour it aborbs damaging Blue light that enters the eye and so acts as a natural filter. The MacuShield patented blend brings together all Three of these cartenoids to help maintain eye health throughout our later years.
