HOW IT WORKS
About Macuhealth plus+
To improve upon the original AREDS2* formula, we include the addition of 10mg of Meso-Zeaxanthin (the third and centrally dominant macular carotenoid). This facilitates maximum augmentation of macular pigment and optimization of visual performance in eyes with AMD. Studies show that supplementing with a combination of all three macular carotenoids (Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Meso-Zeaxanthin) results in increased levels of Macular Pigment Optical Density.
We reduced the level of Zinc from the original AREDS2* 80mg to 25mg. This reduction of Zinc is compliant with the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance). Of note, AREDS2* has shown that there was no significant difference between the AMD group who received 25mg of Zinc compared to the AMD group who received 80mg of Zinc (in terms of benefits). These AREDS2* findings in combination with RDA compliance further supported our decision to recommend a lower (25mg) Zinc dose for patients with AMD.
