Macular carotenoid eye supplements are not only a great way to give the macula the nutrients it needs to enhance your vision, but they can also help improve the eyesight of those diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
MacuHealth has two products designed to meet your eye care needs: MacuHealth and MacuHealth Plus+. However, it can be unclear to know which one is right for you.
Your eye care professional may be more comfortable prescribing an AREDS2 formulation. These are based on clinical trials conducted by the National Eye Institute in 2006, and since then, many more formulations have been created. MacuHealth Plus+ is an AREDS2 formula with two distinct differences: it contains 25 mg of zinc, which is under the daily tolerable limit of 40 mg, as established by the National Institutes of Health, and is fortified with all three macular carotenoids: Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin, and Zeaxanthin.
To further assist you in choosing the right supplement, we’ve prepared this chart below to help familiarize you with the features of MacuHealth and MacuHealth Plus+.
