A variety of MacuShield Products from above, with their packets and capsules, showing the content of the boxes.


It can be quite difficult to distinguish the difference between the MacuShield products and figure out which one is best suited for you, which is why we’ve put together this blog to help you pick the right MacuShield product for you, to keep your eyes happy and healthy!

If you’ve never used MacuShield before, these are supplements that slow down the progression of sight-threatening macular degeneration eye disease and protect the macula from damage with naturally found body nutrients, which aid overall vision and eye health. There are four main MacuShield products:

  • MacuShield+ (Original, 30 or 90 days)
  • MacuShield Gold (30 days)
  • MacuShield Chewable (30 days)
  • MacuShield Vegetarian (90 days)

So, which one is best for you?

MacuShield+ (30 or 90 days)

The MacuShield+ formula is backed by the world’s leading eye care experts, contains three naturally found carotenoids; lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin and puts them into one easy-to-take food capsule.

These three nutrients play the essential role of protecting the macula from free radicals and improving our sensitivity to blue light. By strengthening the macula, MacuShield+ slows down the progression of age-related macular degeneration. Take one capsule daily, preferably with a meal.

MacuShield+ core ingredients include carotenoids:

  • Lutein (10mg)
  • Zeaxanthin (2mg)
  • Meso-zeaxanthin (10mg)
  • Vitamin B2

Other ingredients include:

  • Sunflower Seed Oil
  • Capsule Shell (Gelatine, Glycerol, Beeswax)
  • Marigold Extract
  • Beeswax

MacuShield Gold (30 days)

MacuShield Gold builds on the original breakthrough formula of the MacuShield capsules, adding more vitamins and nutrients found to further protect your eyes from serious conditions that threaten your vision.  MacuShield Gold combines these three macular carotenoids in a formula containing meso-zeaxanthin, zinc to help maintain normal vision, copper, vitamin C, and vitamin E, which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

These essential body nutrients help to perform crucial roles in protecting your eye cells from damage caused by macular degeneration. Take 3 capsules a day, preferably with a meal. This product is best for those looking to get a bit more from their supplements.

MacuShield Chewable (30 days)

MacuShield Original Chewable provides a MacuShield+ formulation with additional vitamin B2 which helps maintain normal vision. The product is a one-a-day, bilberry-flavoured chewable tablet which is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Scientific research shows that three nutrients; meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin are found at the back of the eye, at the macula, where they form the macular pigment (yellow colour). Meso-zeaxanthin is particularly concentrated at the centre of this pigment.

This product is best for those who don’t like taking tablets or have difficulty swallowing so the chewable alternative is best! Not only that it’s also completely vegetarian and vegan friendly.
