Maculin Plus is a naturally occurring source of Zeaxanthin and Lutein. These active substances belong to carotenoids, which have the ability to filter the negative effects of high-energy blue light rays, as well as antioxidant properties, which are manifested in protecting cells from damage and maintaining eye health. Of the 600 naturally occurring carotenoids in the retina, only zeaxanthin and lutein have been found in large volumes. The amount of these two carotenoids in the macular region of the retina (area of the macula) is called macular pigment optical density (MPD) and can be measured.
In the course of studies, the purpose of which was to determine the degree of influence of selected doses of minerals and vitamins on the course of age-related macular dystrophy (AMD), it was found that a complex including zeaxanthin at a dose of 2 mg, lutein at a dose of 10 mg, vitamins E, C and zinc, has the following effect:
- significantly reduces the likelihood of AMD progression [relative risk (RR) 0.72];
- significantly reduces the threat of loss of vision (RR 0.73);
- greatly reduces the risk of wet AMD (RR 0.63).
AMD refers to diseases in which dystrophic changes in the macula develop, in this case the photoreceptors-cones that perceive light are affected, and over time, central vision is lost. When retinal dystrophy occurs, the level of macular pigmentation is particularly important, since macular pigment is the only retinal antioxidant. It limits blue light, which has a phototoxic effect on the retina, and eliminates the effects of free radicals.
The microelements contained in Maculin Plus are not produced by the body and, in order to reduce the threat of retinal degenerative changes with age, should be present in the daily diet.
The combination of lutein and Zea one zeaxanthin, derived from FloraGLO marigolds, is one of the most clinically researched carotenoid complexes in the world, proven to be effective in the treatment of retinal lesions.
Vitamin C, which is part of Maculin Plus, helps to strengthen the walls of the capillaries, which improves the condition of the vessels of the fundus, and as a result, reduces the risk of hemorrhage in the retina and vitreous body of the eye. A decrease in the concentration of L-ascorbic acid in the eye tissue can exacerbate the risk of macular degeneration or retinopathy, the cause of which is a disturbance of the blood supply, leading to a non-inflammatory lesion of the retina of the eyeball. The daily intake of vitamin C is 60 mg. The functions of this active substance also include maintaining the physical activity of the eye muscles, improving the transmission of the visual signal and its perception, normalizing the state of the optic nerve, providing a high content of collagen in the vitreous body and lens.
Zinc takes part in the course of especially important biochemical reactions of the retina, which are necessary for maintaining good vision. The level of zinc in the retina exceeds that in many other organs. A deficiency of this biologically active mineral can lead to the development of AMD and cataracts.
