Macular Degeneration is the Leading Cause of Blindness in the United States
As our Baby Boomer population increases, we are beginning to see an epidemic of this horrible disease that will rob many of us of our central vision. We are now in a race against time to develop strategies to prevent the development of Macular Degeneration and to reduce the effects of this disease on vision once it has begun.
The Importance of Healthy Macular Protective Pigment
Scientists have now discovered the important role that the Macular Protective Pigment plays in the prevention and management of Macular Degeneration and good visual performance. Studies have shown that three key nutrients (lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin) are key to maintaining a healthy MPOD (Macular Pigment Optical Density).
Lumega-Z Will Help Restore Your Macular Protective Pigment
Lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin are the predominant antioxidant pigments and the only carotenoids found in the macular and lens. Scientists believe these three carotenoids protect the retina by filtering out the damaging light before it reaches the photoreceptors. The higher the level of lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin in the macula, the higher the macular pigment optical density. Lumega-Z is a patented, highly absorbable, fast acting liquid dietary supplement which quickly delivers these key nutrients to the blood stream.
