MacuGuard® Ocular Support with Saffron provides lutein, trans-zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin, three important nutrients that protect the delicate photoreceptor cells in the retina's macula from light damage. This innovative formula also contains C3G (cyanidin-3-glucoside), a cutting-edge berry flavonoid compound that helps stimulate regeneration of rhodopsin, a compound in the eyes that absorbs light in the retina to help support night vision.

Benefits at a Glance

  • Comprehensive ocular nutrition in a single softgel
  • Contains lutein, two forms of zeaxanthin, and phospholipid compounds
  • Promotes absorption and concentration of lutein nutrient
  • Contains berry flavonoids to support night vision
  • Carotenoid antioxidants: essential nutrients for your eyes

    The nutrients our eyes need are often hard to come by — and our bodies sometimes lose the ability to synthesize them as we age. For instance: carotenoid nutrients such as lutein and specific forms of zeaxanthin make up your macular pigment. This part of your retina protects underlying photoreceptor cells from the harmful effects of excess blue and ultraviolet light.

    Macular pigment density: vital for healthy vision
    Because of this, the density of your macular pigment is essential to healthy vision. Unfortunately, this density naturally declines with age, and some of us lose the ability to synthesize meso-zeaxanthin from lutein over time. That's why this formula contains lutein as well as trans-zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin, which are difficult to get from diet alone. In addition, alpha-carotene has been added based on new evidence that it helps support the macular pigment.
