MacuHealth with LMZ3 is a patented nutritional supplement that contains all three components found in the Macula: Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are obtained through food and are found primarily in broccoli, corn, squash and dark green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale. Meso-Zeaxanthin is obtained by an enzyme conversion of Lutein to Meso-Zeaxanthin in the macula. A recent peer reviewed study published, August of 2014, in Journal of Food Processing & Technology has verified the presence of Meso-Zeaxanthin in salmon skin, sardine skin, trout skin and trout flesh. Since many Macular Degeneration patients show an inability to convert Lutein to Meso-Zeaxanthin naturally, supplementing with MacuHealth is imperative. MacuHealth with LMZ3 will ensure that this crucial component of macular pigment accumulates in the macula in a way that is not dependent on an enzyme conversion.
