Maxifocus™ Nutritional Ingredients For The Eyes
With the modern diet and especially as we get older, the human eye requires more nutrition every day to sustain itself than even the human heart. Just a few minutes of reduced blood flow has the potential to cause deterioration in eyesight.
A malnourished or aging macular is a condition that may affectmany people as they age. In fact, although it is the leading cause of sight loss in the over 50’s, it is now appearing in much younger people too (some as young as 20 years of age). It is basically caused by the huge amount of free radical damage inflicted by sunlight, wrong foods, toxins and the lack of nutrients reaching the macular to protect it from this free radical damage.
The two specific nutrients responsible for protecting the macular are Lutein (loo-teen) and Zeaxanthin (zeeah-zan-thin). These caroteniods are powerful antioxidants that are known to be missing in the eyes of sufferers.
A malnourished macular affects the small part of the eye responsible for central vision, that allows you to see detail and colours. an aging macular usually starts in one eye and is highly likely to affect the other at a later stage.

What is Lutein Extract?
One of the newest discoveries in nutritional research is the role of the Carotenoid Lutein. Carotenoids are botanical pigments that give certain plants their distinctive red, orange and yellow colours. Beyond their broad-spectrum antioxidant activity, Carotenoids are known to have an affinity for specific organs in the body. In the case of Lutein (the pigment that gives a sunny yellow colour to corn and marigolds), that organ is the eye.
Lutein is found to be concentrated in the macular region of the retina and the lens, where it is thought to be most needed to protect against photo-oxidation (free radical damage). This is because the process of vision involves light being focused through the lens onto the retina. The macula or centre of the retina receives the most light. Its millions of cells, which provide the sharp vision needed to see clearly, are bombarded with light on a daily basis.
Light is an oxidant; when it strikes the fatty acid of the macular region, damage can occur. Lutein, a potent antioxidant, has the potential to help maintain the integrity of the macular tissue where it is concentrated, and also may protect the blood vessels that supply the macular region.
It is recommended Lutein be taken with food with a low fat content for best absorption. This does not apply if taking the sublingual Lutein spray, which ensures perfect absorption
What is L-Taurine?
Taurine is an amino acid from protein, found in high levels in the retina, and is thought to protect against both ultraviolet light and toxic substances. Unlike the other amino acids, taurine is not incorporated into proteins, but exists independently in tissue, most abundantly in the retina, platelets, muscles, and the nervous system.
What is Optisharp® Zeaxanthin?
Zeaxanthin is a structural isomer that belongs the carotenoids family. Carotenoids are synthesized by plants for coloration and absorption of light.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are the only carotenoids and the most dominant pigments in the macular region of the retina and the lens. Their antioxidant properties appear to help maintain the integrity of the blood vessels that supply the macular region of the retina, providing protection from photo-oxidation, the result of light striking the fatty acids in the retina.
Taking lutein and zeaxanthin – through green leafy vegetables or dietary supplements – may help to increase macular pigment optical density (MPOD) in human eyes – which in turn reduces the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
What is Bilberry Fruit Extract?
Bilberry (Vaccinum myrtillus) is a European berry shrub very similar to the blueberry or huckleberry found in the United States. It has been a trusted nutrient for eye health. Bilberry fruits contain chemicals called anthocyanosides that support good circulation in the small capillaries around the eyes.
Because capillary damage is the most major factor in a number of eye diseases, bilberry extracts are often promoted by naturopaths as a potential good source of nutrition, as part of a whole lifestyle regime, or treatment protocol.
What is Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract?
Ginkgo is an nutrient used to make “extracts” that are used in natural medicine.
Ginkgo is often used by naturopathic practitioners involved in memory disorders, and conditions that seem to be due to reduced blood flow in the brain, especially in older people.
Ginkgo has also been used as one ingredient for eye health issues for many hundreds of years.
What is What is Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate)?
Vitamin A plays a major role in supporting good vision, a healthy immune system, and cell growth. It has also been studied as a treatment for many other conditions, including cancers, cataracts, and HIV.
Retinyl Palmitate is the ester of retinol (vitamin A) that is combined with palmitic acid, which is a saturated fatty acid that is a major component of palm oil. Retinyl palmitate is easily absorbed by the skin and once it is there is converted into retinol. Retinol produces the pigments in the retina of the eye. It is also involved in the body’s immunity to fight infections and keeps your eyes and skin moist.
What is Vitamin E (Tocopherol Acetate)
Vitamin E is an important vitamin required for the proper function of many organs in the body. It functions as an antioxidant and protects the body via its roles in anti-inflammatory processes, inhibition of platelet aggregation, and immune enhancement.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts are among the most common causes of significant vision loss in older people. Vitamin E, because of its antioxidant functions, has potential to help in the prevention or treatment of these conditions, as part of a wider protocol.
The formulations of vitamin E, together with other antioxidants, zinc, and copper is promising as part of the fight in improving eye health.
What is What is Vitamin B1 (Thiamin HCL)?
Vitamin B1 is necessary in converting the foods you eat into energy and helping your body metabolize protein. It is needed for healthy skin, hair, eyes and liver, as well as in the proper function of the nervous system.
Vitamin B1, together with other nutrients such as Vitamins A, B2, and B3 or niacin, may lower risk of developing eye health problems, as part of other lifestyle changes. Getting enough vitamins C, E, and B complex vitamins, such as B1, B2, B9 or folic acid, and B12, may further protect the lens of your eyes.
What is Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)?
Vitamin B2 or Riboflavin is necessary for proper growth and repair such as in the development and function of the skin, lining of the digestive tract, blood cells, and many other parts of the body. It is easily absorbed by the cells in the body and also used to keep the tissues healthy and quicken the healing of injuries.
It has been used as a nutritional ingredient for eye health for many years. Vitamin B2 deficiency can cause abnormal sensitivity to light, and various eye problems like itching, burning, and pale eyes.
What is Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)?
Niacinamide can be made from niacin in the body. Niacin is converted to niacinamide when it is taken in amounts greater than what is needed by the body. It is helpful for the proper function of fats and sugars in the body and to maintain healthy cells.
Niacinamide is often included in the nutritional recommendations for healthy eyes, among many other areas.
What is Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride)?
Pyridoxine is required for the proper function of sugars, fats, and proteins in the body. It is also required for the proper growth and development of the brain, eyes, nerves, skin, and many other parts of the body, as well as for boosting the immune system, treating eye and bladder infections, and preventing cancer and kidney stones.
Pyridoxine is continually being researched in the potential treatments of many mind and brain issues, AZ, the nervous system, and nerve pain, headaches, etc.
What is Folate (Folic Acid)?
Together with vitamin B12 and vitamin C, Folic acid functions to metabolize protein in the body. It is vital for the formation of red and white blood cells and necessary for the proper differentiation and growth of cells, as well as for the development of the fetus.
What is Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin)?
Methylcobalamin is necessary for the healthy development and balance of the circulatory, immune and nervous systems. It may help in alleviating nerve damage and promoting nerve cell regeneration. People use vitamin B12 for a wide variety of health purposes, including eye health related issues.
What is Biotin?
Together with the rest of the B-complex vitamins, Biotin has an important role of helping your body to process energy, and carry carbon dioxide all throughout. With proper Biotin levels, your sweat glands, nerve tissue and bone marrow also function at maximum efficiency.
Biotin deficiency results in many symptoms, including hair loss and dry eyes or red scaly rash around the eyes, nose, and mouth.
What is Pantothenic Acid (Calcium Pantothenate)?
D-calcium pantothenate is a synthetic substance made from pantothenic acid and packaged as vitamin B5. Vitamin B-5 is an essential nutrient that is used by the body to create energy and break down carbohydrates and fats. Like the other B vitamins, it is needed for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. Pantothenic acid may contribute to the reduction of eye pain and inflammation, as well as to treat dry eyes.
What is Iodine (Potassium Iodide)?
Iodine, along with the amino acid L-Tyrosine, work together to activate the T3 and T4 hormones, which are essential to the metabolism, energy conservation, and overall immune system of the body. These thyroid hormones are crucial because they cause the pituitary gland to release TSH or thyroid stimulating hormone, which works synergistically with the rest of the hormones in the body.
Iodine is used to prevent iodine deficiency and its consequences, which includes goiter.
What is Magnesium (Magnesium Citrate)?
Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral. Magnesium is important for many systems in the body especially the muscles and nerves. Oral magnesium supplementation is thought to be highly significant in visual field improvements, possibly due to its ability to reduce increased glutamate concentrations in the extracellular spaces around the optic nerve.
What is Zinc (Zinc Citrate)?
Zinc is a mineral stored in various areas of the body, such as in the inner ear, the eyes (especially the retina), thymus gland, and prostate gland. It has been reported to be helpful in reducing the length and severity of colds, canker sores, sore throats, and skin injuries. It also may help in the relief of acne, tnnitus – which causes ringing in the ears, and eye problems.
Zinc Citrate, a combination of zinc and citrate (a derivative of citric acid), plays an important role in helping maintain our most common senses, such as our ability to smell, taste, and see. It may therefore help to fight vision loss, as well as other known eye problems such as macular degeneration, as part of a whole nutritional regime.
What is Selenium (Sodium Selenite)?
Selenium is an essential trace mineral necessary for many bodily processes and is needed for optimal health. It acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect against harmful free radicals. People with gastrointestinal problems may not be able to absorb selenium well, but supplementing with sodium selenite can help to fulfill their daily serving of selenium.
What is Copper (Copper Aspartate)?
Copper aspartate (copper L-aspartate) is a manufactured dietary supplement synthesized from cupric carbonate and L-aspartic acid. It is highly bioavailable.
Copper is involved in numerous biochemical reactions in human cells. It is a component in the manufacture of multiple enzymes, most of which play roles as antioxidants.
What is Chromium (Chromium Niacinate)?
Chromium Niacinate consists of chromium bound with niacin. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that is needed to metabolize carbohydrates, glucose and energy.
What is Phosphatidylserine Extract?
Phosphatidylserine is a nutrient found in the majority of the human cell membranes, including the brain cells. Phostidylserine research suggest that is may be helpful in the improvement of memory and other cognitive functions. Aside from its potential ability to enhance mental alertness and increase electrical activity in the brain, it appears to be a powerful antioxidant. It scavenges free radicals, which can damage cells and accelerate aging.
What is Trimethylglycine (Betaine)?
Trimethylglycine (TMG), also known as betaine, is a substance manufactured by the body. It helps break down another naturally occurring substance called homocysteine, which results in cardiovascular disease and other problems.
A high TMG concentration in a cell, similar to Creatine, can preserve cellular structure and make it more resilient to stressors. TMG is required, as a methyl donor, to synthesize homocysteine, preventing the conditions resulting from homocystinuria, which is its buildup in the blood.
What is Phosphatidylcholine-Glycerin Complex (Liposome Proprietary Blend)?
Phosphatidylcholine is a source of choline and helps to process fats and support cell membranes. It is a primary constituent of liver cell membranes and has been shown in numerous studies to protect liver cells from damage from toxins as well as to help circulate lipids in the bloodstream. It is also a major component of bile, which is needed for fat metabolism.
