A Healthy Diet is essential to maintain a healthy macula. Macular pigment consists of three (3) dietary nutrients – Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin. Nature gives us the ability to selectively accumulate these three nutrients at the very center of the retina. In other words, where vision is sharpest and where color is processed. Unfortunately, today’s processed foods lack the nutrients required to maximize macular pigment. Because of this, supplementation is now believed to be the best way to protect your macula.
