Macula Complete is an appropriate supplement for those AMD patients who have or those who have or continue to smoke since it does not include beta carotene a source of Vitamin A. The AREDS formulation includes 25‚000 IUs of beta carotene; the amount has been linked to increased risk of lung cancer in those who smoke and beta carotene interferes with lutein and zeaxanthin absorption‚ which is vital for optimal pigment.
The preformed vitamin A in Macula Complete is retinyl palmitate‚ which provides adequate vitamin A for night vision‚ wound healing‚ immune protection and appropriate cellular differentiation. The full-spectrum of B vitamins in Macula Complete are included to help prevent DNA damage and inapropriate gene transcription‚ and to control blood levels of homocysteine‚ which has been suggested in published studies to increase the risk of dry AMD becoming wet. The Vitamin C included in Macula Complete is a balanced combination of water soluble ascorbic acid and fat soluble ascorbal palmitate to insure continuous circulating vitamin C. Vitamin E is presented in Macula Complete as 30 IU of d-alpha tocopherol primarily from mixed tocopherols‚ as well as 30 mg of Vitamin E tocotrienols to balance alpha‚ beta‚ gamma and delta tocopherols and tocotrienols.
Macula Complete is properly balanced with a full-spectrum of minerals‚ including zinc‚ copper and manganese‚ which are all three required to produce manganese super-oxide dismutase (Mn SOD)‚ which is necessary to neutralize singlet oxygen and the super-oxide free-radicals suggested to contribute to vascular disease and degenerative diseases of the eyes‚ including macula degeneration. This issue is not adequately addressed in products that only include the ingredients in the ARED study formulation. Macula Complete also includes the minerals associated with blood sugar control‚ chromium and vanadium.
The plant-based nutrients included in Macula Complete include Ginkgo biloba‚ grape seed extract‚ quercetin‚ hesperidin‚ rutin‚ bilberry‚ trans-resveratrol and green tea. These nutrients have been suggested in peer-reviewed scientific literature to address vascular related inflammatory diseases of the entire body and the retina‚ including glaucoma‚ cataract and diabetic retinopathy.
