What is Lumega-Z Medical Food?
Lumega-Z is a regulated vision-specific Medical Food designed to restore and maintain the macular protective pigment. A robust macular pigment protects the central part of your retina, responsible for sharp central vision, against damaging free radicals and oxidative blue light. A healthy macular pigment decreases your risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In fact, research now shows that a depleted macular pigment is a significant modifiable risk factor for vision loss associated with AMD and other eye diseases including glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, and is a biomarker for neuro-degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Lumega-Z was developed by a team of internationally-acclaimed vision scientists and biochemists who have studied the macula and retinal health for more than 40 years. The formula has been successfully used in clinics throughout the United States since 2012. The people of Guardion Health Sciences, the maker of Lumega-Z, are regarded as “The Macular Pigment Specialists.” Guardion is a world leader in the restoration and maintenance of a healthy macular pigment.
