Below are some being some vegetarian and vegan-friendly options:
This MacuShield formula is just like the original but without the gelatine! The MacuShield Vegetarian formula has been designed with the three natural nutrients found in the human eye to protect against age-related macular degeneration. The combination of meso-zeaxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin helps fend off damage from harmful blue light and free radicals – blue light which has become a rising issue due to the rise of TV and mobile phones. It is recommended to take this supplement once daily, with a meal and some water. This supplement is great for those who want to protect themselves from macular degeneration but also for individuals who want to maintain good eye health and reduce their eye’s sensitivity to light.

MacuShield Original Chewable provides a MacuShield Original formulation with additional vitamin B2 which helps maintain normal vision. The product is a one-a-day, bilberry-flavoured chewable tablet that 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. Lutein and zeaxanthin can be found in fruits and vegetables and meso-zeaxanthin is present in some species of fish and seafood. The macular carotenoids in MacuShield Original Chewable are obtained from marigolds (Tagetes Erecta), specifically grown for this purpose. Chew one of the gummies daily preferably with a meal.
VitEYES 2 Capsules are a unique combination of vitamins and minerals created to strengthen and promote the positive health of our eyes, and they’re also vegan and vegetarian-friendly! This unique formula is highly recommended by the Age-Related Eye Care Study (AREDS 2). VitEYES 2 contains lutein and zeaxanthin carotenoids which are not found naturally in the body. These carotenoids are synthesised from our diet and contribute towards healthy vision. Studies have shown that a balanced diet is essential for maintaining healthy vision, especially as we age. However, sometimes it’s not always possible to get all the vitamins or minerals needed to support this. Click here to learn more about this product.
With digital devices and energy-efficient LED lighting, our eyes are exposed to more blue light than ever before but don’t worry, the vegan-friendly formula is suitable for everyone who wants to protect their eyes from blue light and eye strain. Digital Blue gummies contain lutein and zeaxanthin, the yellow colour in the macula of the eye. These carotenoids are found in fruits and green leafy vegetables.
