Macular degeneration can cause problems with central vision, blurry vision, and other symptoms. This eye disorder, which is common in people over 50, can be difficult to treat as it progresses. However, there are ways to prevent or slow down the progression of macular degeneration. A key part of preventing or improving this eye disorder is nutrition, including supplemental nutrition through MacuHealth.
What Is MacuHealth?
MacuHealth is a nutritional supplement that provides your eyes with the nutrients needed for healthy vision and a lower risk of damage. This supplement contains carotenoids, which are antioxidants that help support healthy eyes, brain health, and more. Macular degeneration occurs as the macula in the eye breaks down over time due to oxidative retinal damage from blue light exposure, cellular metabolism, and other causes. This can lead to a loss of central vision. The carotenoids in MacuHealth can help protect the macula from damage or improve macular degeneration.
MacuHealth contains the carotenoids lutein, meso-zeaxanthin, and zeaxanthin, which provide anti-inflammatory and antioxidative effects. These carotenoids help promote eye and brain health and reduce inflammation in your body overall. Your body isn’t able to produce these antioxidants on its own. Instead, it absorbs them when you eat foods that contain them, such as carrots and spinach. However, making sure that you eat enough foods with these carotenoids can be difficult. MacuHealth can help ensure that your body has these important antioxidants.
Macular Degeneration Prevention
Lowering the risk of macular degeneration involves having routine eye exams, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, and eating a nutritious diet that boosts eye health. The triple carotenoid formula in MacuHealth can help your body receive the nutrients needed to reduce oxidative damage to your eyes. Studies done on the use of these carotenoids as supplements have shown that they help reduce the risk of retinal damage that can lead to macular degeneration. When combined with other measures to help with eye degeneration, taking MacuHealth may help lower your risk of this eye condition.
Macular Degeneration Treatment
Macular degeneration affects your central vision. Over time and without treatment, you can lose your central vision entirely, which can affect your daily activities, safety, and other areas of your life. MacuHealth has been shown to help restore macular pigment loss that occurs with this eye condition. In fact, this supplement has been associated with rebuilding macular pigment and beginning to improve visual performance in just 8 weeks.
Other Benefits of MacuHealth
MacuHealth offers other benefits in addition to lowering the risk of macular degeneration. This supplement can help reduce glare, which can help with daily activities, such as driving.
MacuHealth can also help protect your eyes from blue light exposure. This kind of lighting, which comes from digital devices, indoor lights, solar radiation, and other sources, can lead to retinal damage that results in macular degeneration. This blue light breaks down macular pigment over time. MacuHealth can help replenish this pigment in order to support healthy vision.
Taking MacuHealth can help your eyes adjust to changes in lighting levels, known as photostress recovery. This can make it easier for you to see when you go from a darker or lower lighting environment to a brighter one, or vice versa, such as leaving your house and walking outside in the sunshine.
MacuHealth also helps increase contrast sensitivity, which can allow you to see better in certain environments, such as low lighting, glare, or fog. Having better contrast sensitivity helps you see more contrast between objects around you and the background, such as when driving at night or in foggy conditions.
