"blue light causes degeneration of the central retina
(PRWEB UK) 9 September 2012
One of the most complicated health issues to avoid is the ability to hold on to the most precious tool that helps view the true beauty of life– sight. Loss of vision can only be controlled to some extent, making it difficult to fight against the numerous numbers of external factors that increase the likelihood of visual impairment.
According to science blue light causes degeneration of the central retina, an area known as the macula. Unfortunately blue light is part of normal vision and oxygen use is required for life - free radical damage from blue light is the cost of living and is therefore unavoidable. Further everyday factors that contribute to the release of blue filters, and are beyond control, are car headlights, television screens and even the sunlight.
Additional addictive factors that are challenging to have power over are smoking, consumption of alcohol, fried food and oxidative stress – all of which require tough dedication. The most common risk of severe reduction in vision and one that cannot be controlled is the inevitability of ageing and with the ageing population set to increase, the number of people suffering from blindness will soon increase.
With so many risk factors contributing to the likelihood of visual impairment, the risk of blindness lies on the surface. In order to maintain a healthy vision the macula must contain meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin- three important carotenoids used to absorb harmful blue light.
MacuShield® is a unique patented formula which brings together meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin, in a once a day easy to take capsule. The only supplement to contain Meso-zeaxanthin. Available in a pack of 30 capsules (1 month supply) and 90 capsules (3 month supply).
