MacuShield is the UK’s most recommended eye supplement, designed to combat macular degeneration. This treatment combines all three macula carotenoids into a unique formula developed in collaboration with leading eye health experts.
The product is presented as a food supplement and should be taken once a day after meals. The manufacturer warns that it cannot be used as a replacement for other components in your diet, as it is an additional supplement to help to improve and maintain your eyesight.
Taking this product is best for maximising your macular pigment across its spacial profile (because meso-zeaxanthin is the dominant carotenoid at the very centre of the macula).
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) isn’t a painful condition. Some people don’t realise they have it until they notice a loss of vision. You lose visual acuity, contrast sensitivity and images, writing or faces can become distorted in the centre of your vision.
MacuShield attempts to stop this from happening, by taking one capsule a day, the active ingredient of meso-zeaxanthin which is found in different foods, is concentrated into a one a day capsule which helps to regenerate vision and repair lessened macula.
Yes, you don’t need a prescription to buy this dose, some doses will require a prescription but this one does not. A pharmacist will need to ensure the treatment is suitable and safe for you.
The macular is part of the eye that allows you to see fine detail. AMD gradually destroys a person’s sharp, central vision. There are two types:
So far there have not been any consistent MacuShield side effects or allergic reactions. It may cause an upset stomach or minor digestion troubles if taken in the morning before breakfast. This effect is caused by the oily base of the supplement. This isn’t digested well on an empty stomach. To avoid this simply take with or after meals as directed.
Also, there was one case when a person complained about skin dryness issues in the first two weeks of taking the capsules. This was the only MacuShield side effect, and was known to clear up after the two weeks.
Take one capsule daily, preferably with a meal.
Store in a cool and dry place. Keep out of the sight and reach of children.
Research shows the yellow colour in a healthy macula originates from the carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin. These plant compounds help to protect the eye by absorbing damaging blue light and neutralising free radicals.
Recent research supports the vital role that meso-zeaxanthin plays in helping maintain eye health. A clinical trial showed that 100% of patients, with and without AMD, responded positively to meso-zeaxanthin by increasing their macular pigment.
