Macu-Vision Plus is an antioxidant eyes formula containing nutrients that may help to protect against free radical damage in the macula. The macula is responsible for providing acute, central vision. Our ability to read, recognise faces, see fine detail and drive, all rely on the macula.
Antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin C, lutein and zeaxanthin are found in high concentrations in the eye. The eye is susceptible to oxidative damage as it is constantly exposed to the effects of light and oxygen. Due to their chemical structure, lutein and zeaxanthin have the ability to scavenge free radicals and may help to protect the macula from oxidative damage.
Supplementation with lutein and zeaxanthin may increase macular pigment density. Higher macular pigment density may be associated with improved visual sensitivity at lower light levels. Lutein and zeaxanthin may help to filter high-energy blue light, aiding eye function and may help to protect the cells from light induced damage.

- Zinc oxide (zinc 40 mg) 49.8 mg - Zinc is an essential trace element that plays a role in every living cell in the body. There are also around 300 enzymes that need zinc for healthy function. Zinc containing foods include meat, eggs, seafood- especially oysters, whole grains and seeds.
- Cupric oxide (copper 1 mg) 1.25 mg - Copper is a mineral involved in a number of functions in the body including haemoglobin production and the utilisation of glucose and iron. Food sources of copper include oysters, other shellfish and legumes.
- Lutein 5 mg - Lutein is a carotenoid nutrient that belongs to xanthophylls family. Xanthophylls are a group of plant pigments responsible for many of the bright coloured fruits and vegetables. Lutein is found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale.
- Zeaxanthin 1 mg - Zeaxanthin is a carotenoid nutrient that belongs to xanthophylls family and is closely related to lutein. Xanthophylls are a group of plant pigments responsible for many of the bright coloured fruits and vegetables. Zeaxanthin is found in sweet corn, persimmons, orange capsicums and oranges.
Contains zinc, which may be dangerous if taken in large amounts or for a long period of time. Not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding
