Welcome New WOA Annual Sponsor

MacuHealth with LMZ3 is a unique and proprietary formulation containing all three macular carotenoids (in a 10:10:2  L:MZ:Z ratio) found in macular pigment. This includes patented meso-zeaxanthin which is now known to represent one third of the macular pigment, specifically concentrated at the center of the fovea where vision is most critical. Our formulation is manufactured in the USA in a pharmaceutical grade facility. In fact, our product quality is so well controlled that we are able to maintain Informed Sport Certification for Olympic athletes. This means that every single production batch is fully tested by Informed Sports third party lab for product integrity, quality and ingredient consistency.

MacuHealth is the most researched formulation in the world today. Top research centers around the world have used MacuHealth in randomized clinical trials (RCT), published in high impact peer reviewed journals. Some of these centers include Moorefield Eye Hospital, London; Moran Eye Center, Utah; University of Georgia; Nutritional Research Center, Waterford Ireland to name a few. The body of scientific evidence over the past 10 to 15 years has helped us understand the critical role that the three carotenoids play when combined together in a high quality softgel. This includes their strong antioxidant role to protect our cones from oxidation, their anti-inflammatory role to reduce disease progression, their short wavelength light filtering role to improve visual performance and recently their ability to improve visuo–motor function for better hand eye coordination and coincidence anticipation. Most recently we now understand there is a direct correlation between these carotenoids found in macular pigment and the same nutrients in the brain. A recent double blind, placebo controlled RCT in young healthy adults demonstrated when macular pigment is increased, episodic memory was improved.
