Action
LMZ3 in MacuShield is made up of all three macular carotenoids; Lutein, meso-zeaxanthin and zeaxanthin. Scientific research shows that these three macular carotenoids are found at the back of the eye, at the macula, where they form the macular pigment (yellow colour) and concentrated at the very centre of this pigment is meso-zeaxanthin.
MacuShield Gold: LMZ3 is combined with zinc, copper, vitamin C and a natural form of vitamin E.
**Zinc helps maintain normal vision and vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
