Macutec Essentials™ - Healthy Eye Protection
|Helps protect the macula region of your eyes!
|Macutec Essentials is formulated with the exact ingredients and ratios as recommended in the AREDS-2 clinical research study published in mid-2013.
There have been 2 globally significant clinical research studies concerning age-related eye health called AREDS* 1 and AREDS* 2 (*Age-Related Eye Disease Study). Combined, these studies, conducted by the American National Eye Institute, involved a total of over 7500 participants across 80 research centres and were conducted over a total of 12 years. In 2013 the breakthrough AREDS-2 trial results were published. This was a follow up trial to the initial AREDS-1 trial published in 2001.
The AREDS-2 trial again proved conclusively the beneficial effects of taking the AREDS active ingredients are long-lasting.
The AREDS research group was headed by lead investigator Emily Y. Chew, M.D. “Long-term use of AREDS supplements appears safe and protective” said Dr Chew.
AREDS-2 was an important five-year clinical study that demonstrated positive results for dietary lutein and zeaxanthin. The investigators reported that lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation is a safe and effective alternative to beta-carotene. It is therefore very important that for maximum, low risk macular protection, lutein and zeaxanthin are included in the formulation.
