Taken once a day, MacuPrime®, delivers nutrients to the protective macula pigment. The macular pigment is made up of 3 carotenoids called Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin and Zeaxanthin, which gather at the macula to provide natural protection to light-sensitive cells at the back of the eye.
The Macula is a small, light-sensitive spot in the centre of the retina. It is responsible for almost 90% of our vision. The macula gives us all of our sharp detailed and coloured central vision that we rely on for activities such as driving, reading, writing and recognising faces.
As we get older the macular pigment can also wear down and become thinner. This reduces the protection our macula and retina have from oxidative stress and can lead to a condition known as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
Why should I buy MacuPrime®?
MacuPrime® is a high-quality triple carotenoid food supplement containing Lutein (10mg), Meso-Zeaxanthin (10mg) and Zeaxanthin (2mg) MacuPrime® has been tested in research by Nutrition Research Centre Ireland, at South East Technology University. It is the first carotenoid supplement in Europe to be approved by the stringent Supplement Certified testing program. This quality certification means that if you spend your money on MacuPrime® you are guaranteed to get the exact amount of the premium active carotenoids promised on our label. Plus, it certifies that our formula is stable and maintains perfect shelf-life stability from day 1 to day 365 and beyond.
Research from the South East Technology University has shown that only the three carotenoids present in MacuPrime (Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin and Zeaxanthin) gather the back of the eye to form the protective macular pigment at the macula. Our bodies cannot produce carotenoids so can only get them from the foods we eat.
Where do MacuPrime’s® carotenoids come from?
Carotenoids are plant-based pigments that give flowers, plants and fruit their beautiful colours. Their function in plants is to process light, aiding the photosynthesis process encouraging growth of the plant. Foods such as spinach, kale, broccoli, peppers, corn and eggs are great carotenoid rich foods.
Our superior quality NutriMz carotenoid ingredients are extracted from the marigold flower (Tagetes Erecta) using a unique and patented process developed by, Industrial Orgánica SA (IOSA). IOSA are a Mexican family-owned company that has been involved in the expert research and production of carotenoids from natural sources for over 50 years.
How often should I take MacuPrime®?
MacuPrime® is a small, easy-to-swallow gel capsule that should be taken every day with food to aid the absorption of the nutrients. MacuPrime® works alongside a balanced and healthy diet to boost your carotenoid levels and is safe to take as a long-term support to our diet.
What is the difference between MacuPrime® and MacuPrime PLUS+®?
The only difference is that MacuPrime PLUS+® gives you additional Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Copper on top of the Lutein (10mg) Meso-Zeaxanthin (10mg) and Zeaxanthin (2mg) available in MacuPrime®. In addition, MacuPrime PLUS+® also contains Zinc which helps to maintain normal vision.*Enrichment of Macular Pigment Enhances Contrast Sensitivity in Subjects Free of Retina Disease: Central Retinal Enrichment Supplementation Trials – Report 1, Nolan et al, IOVS, 2016.
