BRUDY MACULA has been conceived to supplement daily requirements in essential fatty acids of the Omega-3 family and of the included group of vitamins, minerals and carotenoids, such as lutein and zeaxanthin. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid which is necessary for normal brain and visual function. This benefit is achieved with the daily intake of 250 mg DHA. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid contribute to normal heart function. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA. Lutein and zeaxanthin are deposited in the retina, where they act as a biological filter for light. Zinc contributes to normal sight maintenance. Vitamins C and E, and minerals such as zinc and copper, help to protect cells from oxidative damage.
A food supplement whose ingredients included in the formulations of some clinical studies (AREDS1, AREDS-22, and LAST3 Studies), have shown that they help slow the progression of incipient Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
