Contains concentrated omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids - EPA and DHA are important for eye health. The DHA in fish oil is essential for the normal development and functioning of the retina.
The concentrated Fish Oils (omega-3's) in a daily Macutec dose are the equivalent of taking 3-4 normal 1000mg fish oil capsules - so if you take fish oil that is another saving right there!
All Fish Oil in Macutec is mercury tested.
Macutec + Fish Oil also contains Lutein and Zeaxanthin
Lutein and zeaxanthin intake increases macular pigment density. Lutein and zeaxanthin are principal components of the macula, where they are collectively known as macular pigment and where they are believed to play a major role in protecting retinal tissues against oxidative stress.
Act as free-radical scavengers. Free radicals are common in the body, arising through a variety of mechanisms. Many of these free radicals are dealt with by the body's own free radical, antioxidant defences. Some free radicals, however, escape these defences and cause cellular damage. Research suggests that accumulation of free radical cellular damage can result in degenerative conditions.
The antioxidants zinc and vitamins C and E play a significant role in defending against free radical damage in the macular region of the retina and lens of the eye.
