Complete support for eye health and night vision
MacuGuard Ocular Support with Saffron & Astaxanthin
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 astaxanthin
to protect against eye fatigue and 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. Alpha-carotene has also been added to help support
macular pigment as well as saffron for its vision-enhancing benefits.

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

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.
Astaxanthin: fight eye fatigue
When taken with other carotenoids, astaxanthin has been shown to promote
DNA function, rejuvenate UVA-irradiated cells, and inhibit inflammatory
cell infiltration. Astaxanthin also helps support vascular health within
the eye and improves visual acuity. Astaxanthin may play a protective role
against eye fatigue. Human clinical trials by Japanese scientists
demonstrated that astaxanthin is effective in reducing bleary-eye feeling,
a tendency toward irritation, and supporting ocular health.
Phospholipids for lutein: absorption, concentration and circulation
Getting these eye-healthy nutrients to where you need them most is a huge
part of supporting your vision health. This formula contains phospholipids,
which mix well with lutein and are an integral part of the cell membrane.
Phospholipids have also been shown to support lutein absorption and improve
the circulation and accumulation of lutein within the retina as well.
Nutrition for night vision: C3G berry flavonoids
MacuGuard Ocular Support with Saffron & Astaxanthin also contains a
cutting-edge flavonoid derived from European black currant berry extract.
Cyanidin-3-glucoside encourages the regeneration of rhodopsin, a retinal
compound which absorbs light. Age-related decline of rhodopsin is
associated with the loss of night vision — so this nutrient helps older
eyes see better at night.
Vision-enhancing benefits of saffron
This formula also includes the optimal dose of saffron along with
cyanidin-3-glucoside to support healthy vision. People supplementing with
saffron showed an improvement in vision as measured by them seeing an
average of two additional lines on the Snellen eye chart commonly used by
doctors to test vision.
