The most potent addition to the Fortifeye line of science-based Nutraceuticals is Fortifeye Macular Defense. This Nutraceutical has been in development stage for many years. A multitude of intracellular and plasma blood tests were used in clinical settings with macular degeneration patients to determine what would be optimal for this formula. Fortifeye Macular Defense has taken the latest in nutritional science to create formulas to aid in the defense against free radical damage in the eye and body.
This formula was created to minimize nutritional deficiencies and maximizethe total antioxidant function at a cellular level. Fortifeye has increased the ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) to over 33% higher than Fortifeye Complete. This is the same exact formula as Fortifeye Complete However, it is 33% stronger calling for 3 tablets daily. Fortifeye Macular Defense has higher levels of the specific nutrients that have been studied extensively by Fortifeye. 33% higher levels of all the nutrients listed in the Fortifeye Complete have been added to the Fortifeye Macular Defense making it one of the strongest antioxidants available from Fortifeye.
This formula was developed initially for the macular degeneration patient but is now being used extensively throughout the world for extreme athletes, immune deficiencies, smokers, heavy drinkers, overweight patients, patients on medications that can block antioxidant uptake, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy patients. FortifeyeMacular Defense was developed to aid patients that are in need of higher dosages of specific time-tested nutrients.
These vitamins should be taken in three divided dosages with food to maximize absorption.
Fortifeye Macular Defense can be taken alone or with Fortifeye Super Omega, or Fortifeye Focus. Fortifeye Vitamin formulas have helped many patients to maintain their independence and in certain cases regain their independence thru better vision and/or better health-giving hope thru proper nutrition. Specific nutrients known to have high ORAC values were used to increase the overall ORAC value in this supplement. Increasing total ORAC score will aid in the reduction of free radical damage and oxidative stress in the body and eye. Studies now indicate that decreasing the oxidative stress in the body may aid in prevention or slow down the degenerative diseases in the body and eye.
Ongoing in-house clinical studies using the latest in intracellular and plasma blood testing will continue be used to further enhance the Fortifeye line of Nutraceuticals. Current nutritional science recommends eating 10-12 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. This can be a very difficult task in today’s busy environment. The Fortifeye Macular Defense can help individuals gain some of the antioxidants they may not be getting in their diet. Many changes in this new formula have been made to maximize absorption. Many new nutrients have been added, many current nutrients have been either increased, decreased or molecular structure changed to aid in absorption.
Fortifeye Vitamins are developed to deliver complete nutritional support for total body and eye health. Specific nutrients in precise ratios have been used to give nutritional support to the eye. These nutrients may also give Nutritional support to the entire body. Fortifeye Vitamins when combined with proper diet, hydration, sleep and exercise promotes healthy aging from the inside out.
Fortifeye’s goal with Fortifeye Macular Defense was to develop a science based all in one supplement.

Fortifeye Macular Defense is based on all of the latest nutritional science and research for macular degeneration. There are specific reasons the formula has the exact nutrients and ratios. Example: there is no beta carotene in this formula because it blocks the absorption of beneficial carotenoids like lutein and zeaxanthin. Macular degeneration patients need these valuable carotenoids to promote and protect macular health. The Fortifeye Vitamin team of doctors recommends taking these supplements with food however no multi vitamins, carrots or sweet potatoes should be consumed for a few hrs before or after these vitamins. These specific foods are very high in beta carotene and may block the absorption of the eye healthy carotenoids.
The Doctors at Fortifeye have made some recommendations on when to take the zinc free macular Defense vs Macular Defense
- If you take a DNA test that shows zinc may be potentially harmful for your macular then take zinc free Macular Defense. This test must be done by your eye care provider.
- If you eat animal proteins during the day you should have plenty of zinc and should take the zinc free macular defense. Vegans / plant based diet or anyone that eats very little animal protein should take Macular Defense that does have some zinc.
- Alcoholics need zinc so should take Macular Defense not zinc free.
- Digestive issues like Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis may need more zinc so need to take Macular Defenses and not zinc free.
- Patients taking diuretics may need the zinc so should take Macular Defense not zinc free .
These are basic guidelines set up to help customers and doctors determine which Macular Defense supplement is best. Fortifeye always recommends discussing your nutritional supplements with your health care provider and or eye care provider. Read ingredient profile and make sure you are not allergic to anything in the formula before taking. Always take with food and not on an empty stomach and best not to take all at one time, take with different meals during the day. Example: when taking 3 per day take one with breakfast, lunch and supper.
