Lutein and Zeaxanthin are present in some foods including leafy green vegetables, such as kale, spinach and fruits such as tangerines and oranges.

Meso-Zeaxanthin, arguably the most powerful antioxidant of the three carotenoids is not generally found in our everyday diet and has only been detected in a small number of marine organs including shrimp and certain fish organs (particularly in the skin).


Each MACU-SAVE capsule contains approximately the same amount of;

Meso-Zeaxanthin equivalent to 10,000g Trout

Lutein equivalent to 126g Spinach

Zeaxanthin equivalent to 400g Tangerine


Contains all 3 macular carotenoids which are essential for macular health, plus Vitamin B2 & E.

Vitamin B2 helps to maintain normal vision.

Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

  • Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin, and Zeaxanthin make up the macular carotenoids.

  • Zinc and Vitamin B2 help to maintain normal vision.

  • Copper and Vitamin C contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.


  • Vitamin C and E contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Zinc also has a role in the process of cell division.
  • For general good eye health, it is important to protect the retina and lens from blue light, smoke, and pollution.


Lutein and Zeaxanthin are important nutrients that the body naturally deposits in the macula of the eye to create a protective layer known as macular pigment.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are powerful antioxidants that work like internal sunglasses, protecting the macula from the damaging effects of blue light and oxidative stress₁₄.
