Macu-Support supplies a well-balanced spectrum of key nutrients that are important for eye health, including
vitamin C and E, zinc, lutein and zeaxanthin. Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient that supports eye health by
providing antioxidant activity against reactive oxygen species and can regenerate the antioxidant ability of
Vitamin E. The retina contains a high concentration of fatty acids, which are vulnerable to lipid oxidation by free
radicals. Vitamin E supports retinal health by neutralizing the free radicals. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the two
major carotenoids stored in the macula, the central part of the retina. Numerous double-blind, placebocontrolled trials indicate that lutein and zeaxanthin support the health of the optical lens as well as the retina.
They support retinal health by promoting the integrity and density of the macular pigment, acting as
antioxidants and light filters to protect the ocular tissue. Thus, this combination offers support for photoreceptor
health. Zinc is essential for a wide range of physiological functions, including the regulation of intracellular
signaling pathways in innate and adaptive immune cells. The homeostasis of zinc is particularly important for
cell maturation and cell differentiation, cell cycle progression and proper functioning of immune cells. As it
relates to eye health, zinc plays an important role in maintaining retinal health and various metabolic processes
in the eye.
