ASTAXANTHIN Leading our trio of xanthophyll carotenoids is a full-potency dose of sustainably-sourced astaxanthin (as AstaReal® H. pluvialis algae extract). This red phytonutrient pigment is a powerful antioxidant that combats oxidative stress in our eyes. Known to work in the front of our eyes, astaxanthin is clinically shown to combat eye strain and fatigue, while promoting retinal blood flow, dynamic focus, depth perception, sharp vision, and visual performance.*

6 mg

LUTEIN & ZEAXANTHIN Found in the back of the eyes are macular carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin (as Lutemax® 2020), sourced from marigold flowers (Tagetes erecta). Like "internal sunglasses," these yellow/orange xanthophylls have major light filtering abilities. Concentrated in the center of the retina, these photoprotective antioxidants are clinically shown to improve MPOD, photostress recovery, visual performance, and macular health and longevity.*

11 mg & 2.5 mg

*MAQUI BERRY ** Complementing our carotenoids is our Patagonian maqui berry extract (Aristotelia chilensis). The Chilean fruit delivers anthocyanin polyphenols. These dark purple phytonutrient pigments are potent antioxidants, helping neutralize free radicals in our eyes, one of the most metabolically active organs. Our maqui berry (as MaquiBright®) is clinically shown to help dry eyes by promoting tear production, while also reducing ocular fatigue.

60 mg

SAFFRON Our phytonutrient "rainbow" is rounded out by the golden premium spice, saffron. Saffron flower extract (Crocus sativus) provides crocin and crocetin bioactives, special phytochemicals known as apocarotenoids. Boasting antioxidant, anti-apoptotic, and neuroprotective properties at the cellular level, saffron is clinically shown to support photoreceptor cells, retinal function, and visual acuity, while helping reduce eye pressure.*

What time of day should I take eye health+?

The time of day is ultimately up to you, but we do suggest taking your daily eye health+ capsule with a meal or soon after (i.e., within 30 minutes of a meal). Reason being: Our eye health+ formula is chock full of carotenoids including, astaxanthin, lutein, zeaxanthin, and saffron crocins and crocetins (which are fat-soluble phytonutrient compounds by nature) so taking this supplement around the time or soon after a meal helps facilitate optimal absorption of these plant bioactives.*


Many customers prefer to leverage the power of the 5 botanical bioactives in eye health+ in the morning or by midday (i.e., after breakfast or lunch, respectively), to support the bulk of the waking hours of their day with this powerhouse formula. Other customers take their eye health+ supplement in the evening after dinner. Given the ingredients’ multidimensional support of your eyes, ocular function, and visual performance—morning, noon, or night are all great times to take eye health+.*


The best time to take eye health+ is when you'll remember to, in order to benefit daily from this important eye care routine! Why? Because consistent, daily use is more important than timing, as a daily eye nutrition regimen supports optimal levels of carotenoid accumulation in the body to provide vision and whole-body health benefits. For example, science demonstrates that daily supplementation with astaxanthin typically takes about four weeks to accumulate to beneficial levels in the body.*

Why would I need or consider a targeted eye health supplement?

We have an epidemic of tired and undernourished eyes. We’re visually burned out. With the increase in screen time that pandemic life and remote work ushered in, we are increasingly dealing with more eye health challenges such as major blue light exposure, along with tired, strained, and dry eyes. While digital devices come with their perks (work, entertainment, convenience, keeping us connected), they aren’t going away anytime soon, which equals a greater need for intentional, targeted, and science-backed protection and nourishment of our eyes. Thus, mbg is embracing a proactive, daily approach to care for your eyes and revolutionize visual performance with eye health+. This revolutionary formula is relevant for all adults, those with 20/20 vision (or not), those who are young or older—to meet the demands of the digital age and beyond.*


Along with the stresses of screen time and digital device use, our eyes are also extremely busy and one of the most metabolically active organs in the body! This makes them highly susceptible to oxidative stress (via toxins, free radicals, etc.), from light (indoor and outdoor), pollutants, air temperature, and more. It’s essential for our eyes to have a curated suite of daily nutrients and phytonutrients to meet the demands of both our environment and our eyes’ biological processes. mbg’s eye health+ delivers five science-backed botanical bioactives: astaxanthin as AstaReal®, lutein and zeaxanthin as Lutemax® 2020, maqui berry as MaquiBright®, and saffron. All five ingredients in eye health+ provide antioxidant support for our eyes (by combating free radicals and helping with ocular clean-up of daily “gunk”)—protecting our eyes from the inside out.*


We’re capturing a literal rainbow of phytonutrients and their multidimensional eye health benefits in this product. In just 1 vegan capsule daily, you receive full-potency, clinical trial-rooted doses of orange, yellow, and red xanthophyll carotenoids (astaxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin) and apocarotenoids (saffrons crocin and crocetin), and blue/purple maqui berry (full of anthocyanins). This formula delivers 360-degree eye health and visual performance support actions: targeted retinal and macular support, blue light filtering and photoprotection, eye reset and recovery (from screen time), visual acuity and sharpness, ocular blood flow and nourishment of the eyes, tear production (for dry eyes), and increased antioxidant capacity in the eyes to combat oxidative stress.*

What are carotenoids?

Carotenoids are a unique class of powerful phytonutrient pigments (think yellow, orange, and red) that are found in a variety of plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria and offer whole-body health benefits. Carotenoids (over 600 found in nature) are classified into different groups: carotenes (e.g. beta carotene, a form of vitamin A), xanthophylls (e.g., lutein, zeaxanthin, and astaxanthin), and a unique carotenoid category known as apocarotenoids that includes saffron flower bioactives crocin and crocetin.*


As a nation, our eyes are hungry for these plant ingredients because they represent a major gap in the American diet (due to low fruit, vegetable, and seafood intake). Top food sources of lutein and zeaxanthin are leafy greens, while red seafood are the top food sources of astaxanthin (salmon, lobster, crayfish, and shrimp—who get it from algae) all of which are majorly underconsumed in the U.S. Humans do not have the physiological machinery to synthesize carotenoids on our own. That is why it’s so important that we consume them from a nutrient-dense diet and quality supplement regimen daily to reap their many benefits!*


mbg’s eye health+ leans into carotenoid science. Our formula is chock full of these antioxidant pigments—including orange/yellow/red xanthophylls (astaxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin) and yellow apocarotenoids (saffrons crocin and crocetin bioactives)—that our eye’s crave and utilize for optimal function. Our vegan and plant-powered formula delivers these functionally complementary carotenoids, some of nature’s most powerful antioxidants for our eyes and beyond, at clinically useful doses for daily use.*

What is MPOD?

MPOD stands for macular pigment optical density. This objective and validated metric is the main status biomarker for measuring lutein and zeaxanthin carotenoid (macular pigments) levels in the macula of the eye. It’s a measure of visual carotenoid status. The concentration of lutein and zeaxanthin in the eye (specifically the macular, where they are deposited and work hard to preserve and protect our eyes) is strongly correlated with eye health and visual performance. Lutein, zeaxanthin, and an isomer of zeaxanthin known as meso-zeaxanthin (i.e., referred to collectively as lutein and zeaxanthin) are the only carotenoids found in the macula of your eyes, which shows how critical they are for this most central portion of the retina, for macular and structural function (responsible for central vision, color vision, and discerning fine details). Interestingly enough, macular lutein and zeaxanthin concentrations are 1,000 times higher than blood levels of lutein and zeaxanthin, demonstrating their essential need in this particular organ, our eyes! (That, of course, assumes we’re consuming these carotenoids regularly.)*


Why is MPOD important? Macular pigment supports absorption and filtering of blue light, which is everywhere, not just from screens, but also LED lights in our homes and even the healthy light from outside. Blue light is not just encroaching on our wind down and sleep ritual (i.e., messing with our circadian rhythm). Blue light excess is messing with our daytime life too. Enter macular carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin: Adding a strategic tool to your blue light toolbox, as they act as our “internal sunglasses'' to filter blue light and provide photoprotection antioxidant support, too. According to clinical research, it takes approximately six to eight weeks of daily supplementation with lutein and zeaxanthin for accumulation in the eye to impact MPOD levels in a meaningful way, so it is critical to consume these powerful macular pigments on a daily basis. Lutein and zeaxanthin (as Lutemax® 2020) in mbg’s eye health+ are clinically shown to increase MPOD levels and key measures of visual performance, including improved photostress recovery and contrast sensitivity (i.e. our eyes’ ability to distinguish objects from their background), as well as less light sensitivity.*

When it comes to eye health ingredients, what’s the difference between mbg’s eye health+ and ultimate multivitamin+?

mbg’s ultimate multivitamin+ and eye health+ provide complementary ingredients for eye health and visual performance. The foundational eye health ingredients we intentionally and comprehensively feature in ultimate multivitamin+ include vitamin A (in beta-carotene and retinol formats), vitamin C, vitamin E, riboflavin, zinc, copper, and even lutein and zeaxanthin (unique for a multivitamin).*


While these essential nutrients provide daily foundational nutrition support for women and men, our eye health+ supplement takes your vision support to the next level. While intentionally synergizing with ultimate multivitamin+, our eye health+ formula delivers incremental, targeted visual performance plant bioactives via high-potency lutein and zeaxanthin, astaxanthin, maqui berry, and saffron. The same person who leverages eye health+ may very well take our ultimate multivitamin+ supplement daily, too. In fact, we created the entire mindbodygreen supplements+ portfolio with this synergy potential in mind.*

eye health+ provides 5 powerful antioxidants our eyes need to stay healthy.*

Rudrani Banik, M.D.

Vision is perhaps the most important of the 5 senses, and our eyes need unique botanical nutrients daily to keep them healthy. This is critical now more than ever in our digital world, with increased demands on our eyes from excess screen time. The nutrients found in mbg's eye health+ provide 5 powerful antioxidants our eyes need to stay healthy. Two macular carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, act as our natural sunglasses and blue blockers, neutralizing the harmful effects of UV and blue light, and are crucial for macular health and longevity. Astaxanthin, often called the "king of antioxidants," also fights against oxidative stress in the eye, improves ocular blood flow, and protects the retina. The anthocyanins found in maqui berry support healthy tear production to fight dry eye, while saffron's crocins deliver targeted effects that help protect the retina. Together, these 5 powerhouse botanicals support healthy eyes for adults of all ages.

All 5 bioactives support multiple dimensions of ocular function and health.*

Ilene Ruhoy, M.D., Ph.D.

The eyes are the window to our brains and together they create our visual circuitry via a beautifully intricate network of photoreceptors, neurons, blood vessels, muscles, and more. Our eyes are also an oft neglected organ when it comes to daily health practices. In this world of near focus excess (prolonged computer use, phones close to our face, etc.), our eyes are experiencing burnout, and visual longevity is at stake. That's why the eye-critical plant nutrients in mbg's eye health+ supplement excite me: Not only do all 5 bioactives support multiple dimensions of ocular function and health, they're also sourced from premium botanicals: sustainable algae, marigold flowers, saffron flower, and Patagonian maqui berry.*

In just 1 vegan capsule daily, you receive full-potency, clinical trial-rooted doses of orange, yellow, and red xanthophyll carotenoids (astaxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin) and apocarotenoids (saffrons crocin and crocetin), and blue/purple maqui berry (full of anthocyanins). This formula delivers 360-degree eye health and visual performance support actions: targeted retinal and macular support, blue light filtering and photoprotection, eye reset and recovery (from screen time), visual acuity and sharpness, ocular blood flow and nourishment of the eyes, tear production (for dry eyes), and increased antioxidant capacity in the eyes to combat oxidative stress.*

What are carotenoids?

Carotenoids are a unique class of powerful phytonutrient pigments (think yellow, orange, and red) that are found in a variety of plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria and offer whole-body health benefits. Carotenoids (over 600 found in nature) are classified into different groups: carotenes (e.g. beta carotene, a form of vitamin A), xanthophylls (e.g., lutein, zeaxanthin, and astaxanthin), and a unique carotenoid category known as apocarotenoids that includes saffron flower bioactives crocin and crocetin.*


As a nation, our eyes are hungry for these plant ingredients because they represent a major gap in the American diet (due to low fruit, vegetable, and seafood intake). Top food sources of lutein and zeaxanthin are leafy greens, while red seafood are the top food sources of astaxanthin (salmon, lobster, crayfish, and shrimp—who get it from algae) all of which are majorly underconsumed in the U.S. Humans do not have the physiological machinery to synthesize carotenoids on our own. That is why it’s so important that we consume them from a nutrient-dense diet and quality supplement regimen daily to reap their many benefits!*


mbg’s eye health+ leans into carotenoid science. Our formula is chock full of these antioxidant pigments—including orange/yellow/red xanthophylls (astaxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin) and yellow apocarotenoids (saffrons crocin and crocetin bioactives)—that our eye’s crave and utilize for optimal function. Our vegan and plant-powered formula delivers these functionally complementary carotenoids, some of nature’s most powerful antioxidants for our eyes and beyond, at clinically useful doses for daily use.*

What is MPOD?

MPOD stands for macular pigment optical density. This objective and validated metric is the main status biomarker for measuring lutein and zeaxanthin carotenoid (macular pigments) levels in the macula of the eye. It’s a measure of visual carotenoid status. The concentration of lutein and zeaxanthin in the eye (specifically the macular, where they are deposited and work hard to preserve and protect our eyes) is strongly correlated with eye health and visual performance. Lutein, zeaxanthin, and an isomer of zeaxanthin known as meso-zeaxanthin (i.e., referred to collectively as lutein and zeaxanthin) are the only carotenoids found in the macula of your eyes, which shows how critical they are for this most central portion of the retina, for macular and structural function (responsible for central vision, color vision, and discerning fine details). Interestingly enough, macular lutein and zeaxanthin concentrations are 1,000 times higher than blood levels of lutein and zeaxanthin, demonstrating their essential need in this particular organ, our eyes! (That, of course, assumes we’re consuming these carotenoids regularly.)*


Why is MPOD important? Macular pigment supports absorption and filtering of blue light, which is everywhere, not just from screens, but also LED lights in our homes and even the healthy light from outside. Blue light is not just encroaching on our wind down and sleep ritual (i.e., messing with our circadian rhythm). Blue light excess is messing with our daytime life too. Enter macular carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin: Adding a strategic tool to your blue light toolbox, as they act as our “internal sunglasses'' to filter blue light and provide photoprotection antioxidant support, too. According to clinical research, it takes approximately six to eight weeks of daily supplementation with lutein and zeaxanthin for accumulation in the eye to impact MPOD levels in a meaningful way, so it is critical to consume these powerful macular pigments on a daily basis. Lutein and zeaxanthin (as Lutemax® 2020) in mbg’s eye health+ are clinically shown to increase MPOD levels and key measures of visual performance, including improved photostress recovery and contrast sensitivity (i.e. our eyes’ ability to distinguish objects from their background), as well as less light sensitivity.*

When it comes to eye health ingredients, what’s the difference between mbg’s eye health+ and ultimate multivitamin+?

mbg’s ultimate multivitamin+ and eye health+ provide complementary ingredients for eye health and visual performance. The foundational eye health ingredients we intentionally and comprehensively feature in ultimate multivitamin+ include vitamin A (in beta-carotene and retinol formats), vitamin C, vitamin E, riboflavin, zinc, copper, and even lutein and zeaxanthin (unique for a multivitamin).*


While these essential nutrients provide daily foundational nutrition support for women and men, our eye health+ supplement takes your vision support to the next level. While intentionally synergizing with ultimate multivitamin+, our eye health+ formula delivers incremental, targeted visual performance plant bioactives via high-potency lutein and zeaxanthin, astaxanthin, maqui berry, and saffron. The same person who leverages eye health+ may very well take our ultimate multivitamin+ supplement daily, too. In fact, we created the entire mindbodygreen supplements+ portfolio with this synergy potential in mind.*
