BEST ® LUTEIN + DHA
MACULA PLUS is a food supplement based on pure lutein and DHA.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are antioxidants of the eye, which help protect it against the harmful effects of light exposure by increasing macular pigment levels in the plasma and retina. DHA is the most abundant omega 3 fatty acid in the retina and is important for the normal development of the eye and for eye health.
Indicated in the treatment of macular degeneration.

The benefits of MACULA PLUS
The macula is located in the centre of the retina and is responsible for central vision. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most common cause of blindness in the world. AMD generally develops first in one eye and then in the other, getting worse with age. AMD is characterised by damage or deterioration of the small blood vessels in the eye.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are the only carotenoids that are found in significant amounts in the retina, lens and macula, where they play an important role as a result of their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and they act as a UV filter, since lutein absorbs blue light, which is possibly the most damaging for the retina.
DHA is the most abundant fatty acid in the retina and it protects the lipid part of the eye from oxidation.
MACULA PLUS has been carefully formulated to afford greater protection, as it contains the appropriate proportions of lutein and zeaxanthin together with a mixture of vitamins and minerals that act synergistically, in addition to DHA, which protects the lipid part of the eye.
