What are MacuShield Gold capsules?

MacuShield Gold capsules are a food supplement formulated to support your eye health. With extra vitamins and minerals, these capsules are perfect for those who take their vision seriously and want to give their eyes the support they need as you grow older. They contain ingredients found naturally in the macula of your eye, helping to support this vital part of your retina and your vision as a whole.


What is Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a common condition that affects the centre of your vision. It happens when the macula, a pigmented area in your retina that is responsible for the centre of your vision, becomes damaged or begins to degenerate. If you have AMD, you’ll usually experience it for the first time during your 50s or 60s, when you may notice that the centre of your vision is blurry or distorted. There are two types of AMD, wet AMD which happens over just a few weeks or months, and dry AMD which develops over a few years.


How will MacuShield Gold support my eye health?

MacuShield Gold capsules contain meso-zeaxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which are all naturally present in your macular pigment. In addition, they contain vitamins C and E which work together to support your cells and protect them from oxidative stress. They also contain zinc, which promotes wound healing and helps your body to maintain normal vision.
