The new and improved Macu-Guard with Bilberry 10 000 is AVAILABLE NOW for sale. Macu-Guard with Bilberry 10 000 has been reformulated and upgraded to match the doses of lutein, zeaxanthin and zinc used in The Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS2) and to provide the natural 5:1 ratio of lutein:zeaxanthin which reflects both serum and dietary ratios of these carotenoids.
Main changes include:
Fresh Bilberry is used instead of dry – same high strength of 10 000mg and standardisation for anthocyanosides at 25mg
Lutein increased from 3mg to 10mg
Betacarotene removed to make way for increased lutein
Vitamin C increased from 200mg to 250mg
Natural vitamin E increased from 150IU to 200IU
Selenium removed – companion sell our Selenium 150 MAX if required
Zinc oxide 20mg replaced with zinc citrate dihydrate 25mg
Changed from a capsule to a tablet
New & improved benefits:
Contains 10mg of lutein, 2mg of zeaxanthin and 25mg of zinc to match the doses studied in AREDS2
AREDS2 found that 25mg of zinc was as effective as the original 80mg studied in AREDS1
Lutein and zeaxanthin now in a natural 5:1 ratio - some evidence suggests that using an equal dose of L:Z can produce poorer results due to duodenal, hepatic or retinal carotenoid competition
Increased levels of the water and fat soluble antioxidant nutrients vitamins C and E to protect the eyes from oxidative/free radical damage and maintain eye health
The Lutein Antioxidant Supplementation Trial (LAST) is one of the largest clinical trials to evaluate the impact of lutein on macula pigment optical density (MPOD). Low MPOD is a risk factor for age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Ninety men who had AMD were given either 10mg of lutein, 10mg lutein with antioxidants or placebo for one year. MPOD increased by 36% in those receiving 10mg lutein and 43% in those receiving 10mg lutein plus antioxidants..
