Confusion between Macushield Original and Macushield Gold by some reviewers
16 November 2018
This review is for Macushield Original. I have noticed several reviews on this page that are for Macushield Gold.
My husband and I are taking this as a preventative measure. He was given a leaflet by the hospital which was regarding the Age Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS2). The study gave AMD volunteers supplements and it was discovered that this reduced their risk of vision loss. The doses recommended are: Vit C 500mg, Vitamin E 400 in, Lutein 10 mg, Zeaxanthin 2 mg, Zinc 25 mg, Copper 2mg. Most of these supplements are in Macushield Gold,however we already take a good quality multivitamin and a bone support supplement which includes all of these so we decided on the Multimax Original. It is substantially cheaper than the gold version and you only take one a day. You have to take 3 a day of the Gold. As well as the multivitamin we also take 500mg vit C as the vit C content in most multivitamins is quite low.
