Carotenoids: Eye-friendly Nutrients
Carotenoids are a class of phytonutrients (plant chemicals) that are obtained from diet or supplements. Eating foods or taking supplements that contain carotenoids can offer a wide range of health benefits. For instance: the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are the main pigments in the macular portion of the eye’s retina. Lutein and zeaxanthin protect your eye against light and free radical-induced damage.

Why Should I Supplement With MacuGuard® Ocular Support with Saffron & Astaxanthin?

"The nutrients our eyes need are hard to come by, and studies show that our bodies sometimes lose the ability to produce them as we age. With MacuGuard® Ocular Support with Saffron, you'll get all the nutrients you need to protect your eyes from oxidative stress. It also includes a cutting-edge berry flavonoid compound that helps support nighttime vision. "We also have a version of MacuGuard® that adds astaxanthin. This helps support your vascular health within the eye and helps fight eye fatigue." Dr. Michael A. Smith, MD: Director of Education and Spokesperson for Life Extension.

Product Details
The nutrients our eyes need are often hard to come by, but it’s worth making sure we get enough of them to keep our eyes healthy over time. For instance: the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are the main components of your macular pigment, and help protect the eyes from the effects of excess blue and ultraviolet light.

Lutein & Zeaxanthin: vital for healthy vision
That's why this formula contains lutein and trans-zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin, as well as alpha-carotene, another eye health carotenoid that has been associated with protection of the macula and retina. Lutein and the two types of zeaxanthin are very well-known to help preserve the health of the macula and act as defenders against excessive oxidative stress. They help keep eyes functioning well, even over time.3,5,6

Astaxanthin: fight eye fatigue
Japanese scientists have clinically studied astaxanthin. They’ve demonstrated that 6 mg of astaxanthin supplementation daily helped promote visual sharpness and eye health.

Phospholipids for carotenoids: optimal absorption
Getting these eye-healthy nutrients where you need them most is a huge part of supporting your vision health. This formula contains phospholipids, which are an integral part of every cell membrane in the body. This helps promote absorption of lutein and zeaxanthin. Good absorption is crucial for these nutrients to make it into the retina of the eye.

Eye Health: Top 10 Vitamins and Supplements
The importance of certain nutrients like vitamin A for eye health is well-established, but achieving sufficient dietary intake can be challenging. Eye supplements can provide these essential nutrients to ensure optimal eye health.Eye supplements can be beneficial for those looking to maintain eye health with aging, manage job-related visual stress, limit exposure to blue light from devices, mitigate occasional eye discomfort, and protect against oxidative stress. It's particularly relevant for people working with computers or spending significant time on devices emitting blue light.

Meeting daily requirements of eye health-supporting nutrients like vitamins A, C, E, and omega-3 fatty acids can be hard even for the healthiest eaters. While a nutrient-rich diet includes green leafy vegetables, carrots, yams, saffron, pistachios, and egg yolks, most individuals may not consume these regularly. This is where eye supplements, rich in lutein, zeaxanthin, and carotenoids, can fill the gap.

Several studies confirm the value of certain nutrients for eye health. The top 10 are:
1. Lutein and zeaxanthin: These carotenoids, abundant in fruits and vegetables, protect the eyes from oxidative stress and filter blue light.
2. Astaxanthin: This nutrient, found in many eye supplements, supports visual sharpness and fights eye fatigue, while also promoting heart and mitochondrial health.
3. Saffron: Saffron extract supports visual function, visual acuity, and macular health.
4. Bilberry: This fruit combats eye fatigue and promotes night vision. It contains anthocyanins that support vision health and ocular circulation.
5. French maritime pine bark extract: Known for promoting healthy circulation, this extract, when paired with bilberry, can help maintain healthy eye pressure.
6. Vitamin C: A potent antioxidant, vitamin C is recommended by the American Optometric Association to maintain eye health.
7. Vitamin E: This antioxidant preserves vision and works well with vitamin C and fish oil.
8. Fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA: Commonly recommended for heart and joint health, these also support eye health.
9. Zinc: An antioxidant supporting immune, cardiovascular, and neurological health, zinc also maintains vision health during aging.
10. Maqui berry standardized extract: Packed with anthocyanidins called delphinidins, this extract supports the eye’s natural defenses, encourages eye comfort and healthy tear production, and protects from oxidative stress.

Beyond supplements, lubricating eye drops made with glycerin and additional nutrients can also support vision health and relieve occasional discomfort.
