MacuShield Gold is the newest product by MacuVision, the same company who released the highly popular MacuShield supplements. Slight enhancements have been made to their winning formula in MacuShield. MacuShield Gold contains Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin (all found in MacuShield) but also contains Omega-3, zinc and other vitamins. Lutein and Zeaxanthin provide the eyes with Ultra-Violet (UV) protection. Meso-Zeaxanthin works directly with the macula in improving the clarity of vision. Omega-3 are fatty acids that protect the eyes from macular degeneration and dry eye syndromes. It also decreases the risk of high eye pressure and glaucoma. Zinc protects the retinal cells from antioxidant damage. MacuShield Gold is highly recommended by experts who claim the product is an improvement on the previous MacuShield. All the ingredients complement each other and none have a direct and specific role on the eye. Each MacuShield Gold capsule provides the right amount of nutrients to ensure your eyes are well protected and vision clarity improved. MacuShield Gold is a dual-capsule eye supplement which incorporates the original MacuShield, (with its synergistic formulation of meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin), coupled with an additional capsule containing zinc, vitamins and Omega-3. The purpose of MacuShield Gold is to enrich ones macular pigment (with proven benefits for glare reduction and enhanced overall visual performance). The vitamins included are essential for the maintenance of normal vision and healthy eyes. MacuShield Gold is the most comprehensive eye-vitamin to consider when trying to reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD).
