MacuGuard Ocular Support plus Astaxanthin, Saffron and C3G (60 softgels)*
Superior Ocular Suport formula providing therapeutic doses of all three carotenoids to help protect your precious eyesight, plus a special ingredient, astaxanthin, which is scientifically proven to help fight eye fatigue.
Staring at a fixed-distance object such as a computer screen for a long period of time can cause the muscles that focus your eyes (the ciliary body) to tire or go into spasm. This can result in physical symptoms such as head discomfort, sensitivity to glare, fatigue, soreness, dryness and blurry vision.
MacuGuard Ocular Support contains a potent dose of astaxanthin, a carotenoid found in the red algae called Haematococcus pluvialis. Studies show that taking astaxanthin with other carotenoids protects against free radical-induced DNA damage, repairs UVA-irradiated cells, and inhibits inflammatory cell infiltration. Astaxanthin also helps support vascular health within the eye and improves visual acuity. Astaxanthin may play a preventative role in eye fatigue. Human clinical trials by Japanese scientists demonstrated that astaxanthin is effective in reducing bleary-eye feeling, a tendency toward irritation, and preventing eye strain resulting from accommodative dysfunction.

Questions and answers:
Question: what's the difference between Life Extension Macuguard Ocular Support Plus Astaxanthin and Macuguard Ocular Support
- A: Macugaurd Ocular Support Plus Astaxanthin also includes saffron along with the ingredients formulated in the Macugaurd Ocular Support. According to research provided by Life Extension "people supplementing with saffron showed an improvement in vision as measured by them seeing two additional lines on the Snellen eye chart commonly used by Doctor's". Macugaurd Ocular Support does not include astaxanthin which may play a role in eye fatigue and vascular health within the eye.
Question: What is the expiry date on this super zeaxanthin product?What is the difference between astaxanthin and zeaxanthin?
- A: The expiration date is March of 2015 on our current stock. Astaxanthin, found in the red algae called Haematococcus pluvialis, when taken with other carotenoids has been shown to protect against free radical-induced DNA damage, repair UVA-irradiated cells, and inhibit inflammatory cell infiltration.8,15-16 Astaxanthin also helps support vascular health within the eye and improves visual acuity.17 Astaxanthin may play a preventative role in eye fatigue. Human clinical trials by Japanese scientists demonstrated that astaxanthin is effective in reducing bleary-eye feeling, a tendency toward irritation, and preventing eye strain. The macular region of the human retina is yellow in color due to the presence of the macular pigment, composed of two dietary xanthophylls, lutein and zeaxanthin, and another xanthophyll, meso-zeaxanthin. The density of your macular pigment (composed of lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin) is essential to proper vision.8-10 These carotenoids act as antioxidants and protect the macula from damage by photo-initiated oxidative stress.10-12 Unfortunately, this density declines naturally over time. Some aging people also lose their ability to convert lutein into meso-zeaxanthin inside their macula.
