This unique formulation underscores Macu-LZ's commitment to providing a holistic approach to wellness by addressing the specific needs of the eyes, brain, and skin with the power of these carotenoids.

Proven Bioavailability

Macu-LZ is available in oil suspensions, and beadlets featuring DSM’s Actilease microencapsulation technology, a proprietary process that combines superior bioavailability, excellent stability and very low extrusion losses and lower overages.

Easy to Formulate

Macu-LZ formulates easily into capsules, tablets, gummies, chews, soft gels, beverages, dairy and other food products.          

Determining the ideal dosage of Macu-LZ is a nuanced process that hinges on the specific health benefits sought. The recommended dose ranges from 12 to 24 mg, ensuring optimal efficacy. This translates to 10 mg lutein and 2 mg zeaxanthin isomers or 20 mg lutein and 4 mg zeaxanthin isomers, depending on the desired outcome. Macu-LZ stands out not only for its health benefits but also for its formulation strengths. With a remarkable stability extending up to three years, Macu-LZ guarantees longevity without compromising its effectiveness. Its superior performance under tableting pressure ensures consistent quality, while the option of oil and beadlet forms caters to diverse applications, making Macu-LZ a versatile and reliable choice for various nutritional formulations.

State of the art Beadlet Stability

While utilizing DSM’s Actilease technology, Macu-LZ has enhanced beadlet performance in tablet manufacturing causing less losses, meaning lower overages needed. Furthermore, we have a dedicated team of scientists through our Customer Laboratory Services (CLS) group that is here to help with testing your product formulations to see if they live up to your labels.
