MacuGuard™ Ocular Support wIth Astaxanthin
60 softgels
Item Catalog Number: 01886

Lutein is one of the major components of macular pigment and it is essential to proper vision.1 Eating large quantities of lutein and zeaxanthin-containing vegetables can help provide the nutritional building blocks necessary to maintain the structural integrity of the macula. It’s difficult, however, to increase systemic circulation of these important nutrients through food alone.2 Now there is an easier way to bolster your eye integrity.

MacuGuard™ Ocular Support contains phospholipids, which are an integral part of the cell membrane. In addition to mixing well with other important fat-soluble components of the eye such as lutein, phospholipids have been shown to help support efficient absorption of dietary lutein in the blood stream as well.2-7

Phospholipids have been shown in scientific research to improve systemic circulation and accumulations of lutein in the retina of the eyes, making them a potent all-around weapon in your arsenal for eye health.6,7

MacuGuard™ Ocular Support offers triple eye protection:

  • Supports concentration of lutein in the eye.
  • Supports efficient absorption of lutein in the blood stream.
  • Phospholipids enhance lutein in the cell membrane.
  • Supports zeaxanthin concentrations in eye.
  • Provides meso-zeaxanthin which is difficult to obtain from dietary sources.

This formula provides ingredients that have been shown to protect healthy eyesight. Each capsule contains MacuGuard™ carotenoid phospholipid blend, which provides phospholipids, lutein, meso-zeaxanthin and trans-zeaxanthin, along with cyanidin-3-glucoside (C3G) from European black currant extract. The formula also contains astaxanthin, which when taken with other carotenoids has been shown to protect against free radical-induced DNA damage and may play a protective role against eye fatigue.

Comments about Life Extension MacuGuard™ Ocular Support with Astaxanthin, 60 softgels:

LE's Life Mix and Two-Per-Day products only contain 5,000 units of beta-carotine. And no alpha or gamma carotines. Neither does this. They should put in this about another 20,000 IU of Betatene beta-carotine, and decent amounts of alpha and gamma carotine. And some lycopene wouldn't hurt too.

But, it does contain good amounts of lutein, astaxanthin and zeaxanthin.

So, it is a good product, but, could be even better with even more carotenoids.
