What is Retinex?

Retinex contains the powerful natural carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin that are found in high concentrations in the eye, particularly the macula. The natural pigments are also found in brightly coloured fruits and leafy green vegetables. A good amount of lutein and zeaxanthin can be obtained from a healthy balanced diet, however not all people manage this; supplements can play a role in maintaining healthy levels  of these nutrients in the eyes.

What is in our Retinex tablets?

Each unique and expertly formulated Retinex tablet contains 10mg of natural lutein and 1,000µg of zeaxanthin sourced from marigolds - the most purified source available. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is included in this unique formulation to further support your eye health.* 

For more comprehensive support our experts recommend Retinex Max, our most advance eye health formulation.

*Contains riboflavin (Vitamin B2) which contributes to the maintenance of normal vision.

Satisfied with the product although am offered a stronger tablet but the Macular Society say there is no benefit from a higher tablet.

Not sure I have noted any difference in eye health since using this product. However, I shall continue to use it because it is one of the supplements proven to improve the condition of the macula.
