Macular Support 120's is available by Pure Encapsulations.
Macular Support Formula is a combination
of potent antioxidants and botanicals designed to protect and support
the macula, the central area of the retina responsible for sharp
vision. Since the macula is extremely susceptible to free radical
damage, research emphasizes the importance of antioxidant
supplementation in maintaining and improving macular health.
N-acetyl-l-cysteine is a powerful antioxidant and glutathione precursor.
In animal studies, it has been shown to
protect against oxidative damage to the lens and to support healthy
glutathione levels. Glutathione is one of the natural antioxidants
found in retinal tissues. Bilberry, containing anthocyanidins, has been
shown to moderate visual fatigue and to improve light to dark
adjustments. Grape seed extract is another powerful antioxidant and
helps support antioxidant balance in the retina. This formula is also
enhanced with lutein, one of only two carotenoids found in macular
pigment. Lutein promotes the integrity and density of the macular
pigment. The antioxidant activity of lutein also provides optimal
protection of the macula from light. In addition, lutein helps to
maintain the health of the optical lens. Mixed carotenoids also provide
zeaxanthin, the other carotenoid found in macular pigments, as well as
other carotenoids for antioxidant support. Vitamin C has also been
shown to support ocular health.
120 VEGETABLE CAPSULES
comprehensive formula brings together proanthocyanidins, amino acids,
vitamin C and carotenoids to provide exceptional protection against
free radicals in retinal tissues.
