Superior macular support with meso-zeaxanthin and vegan DHA
Inspired by the AREDS2 formula (Age Related Eye Disease Study)
High concentrations of lutein, meso-zeaxanthin and zeaxanthin as recommended by opticians
For optimising macular pigment density
Provides DHA*, vitamins A and B2, and zinc which all contribute to the maintenance of normal vision
Helps protect eyes from blue light sensitivity and glare
Suitable for teenagers and adults
*Beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg
Lutein and zeaxanthin are vital carotenoids present in the macula at the back of the eye, whilst meso-zeaxanthin is particularly concentrated in the centre of the macula.
Light including that emitted by blue light devices such as computer screens creates free-radials that can damage the cells of the eye, leading to eye problems such as Age-Related Macular Degeneration or AMD.
AREDS 2 Trial – Landmark eye study with a formulation including lutein, zeaxanthin, zinc, copper, vitamins C and E and DHA
Those who consume higher levels of lutein have a reduced risk of developing AMD
Taking a lutein supplement can improve some symptoms of AMD – macular pigment density, glare recovery, contrast sensitivity and near vision sharpness
Meso-zeaxanthin protects against chronic and cumulative eye damage – filtering potentially damaging wavelengths and neutralising free-radicals
Higher DHA consumption is related to a reduced risk of developing AMD
Inclusion of meso-zeaxanthin results in a greater increase in macular pigment than with lutein and zeaxanthin alone

It might seem strange to think about eating properly to look after your eyes, but that is why so many of us don’t.
Our grandparents recognised the value of eating carrots to look after their eyes, often claiming that they helped you see in the dark – and guess what they were right!
Making sure that we eat the right vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants is key to keeping our eyes healthy in later life – but what do we need to protect them from?
Light is essential for us to see, but can also be damaging. Unless the eye has adequate protection, light creates harmful free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules, which if left unchecked can severely damage cells) in the eye. This can lead to impaired eyesight, particularly as we grow older. Smoke, pollution and even our diet (e.g., hydrogenated fats, alcohol) can also create harmful free radicals.
The body makes its own antioxidants to quench these free radicals, but it also relies on natural antioxidants in our diet for full protection.
Using the correct and balanced supplement has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of developing serious eye conditions like age-related macular degeneration.
This powerful formulation contains both vitamin C and zinc which are antioxidants that contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
– Provides vitamins A, B2 and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal vision.
– Contains lutein and zeaxanthin which are particularly concentrated in the macula of your eyes.
– Lutein and zeaxanthin are the only carotenoids naturally found in the retina, therefore providing protection from free radical damage
– High concentrations of both lutein and zeaxanthin as recommended by opticians.
– Also contains bilberry which helps protect DNA, proteins and lipids from oxidative damage
– An ideal blend of nutrients and highly recommended by readers of the Good Life Letter
