Andrew Lessman's MAXIMUM L+Z is an ultra-high potency blend of Lutein and Zeaxanthin (L + Z), two dietary ingredients that physicians and experts consider to be critical for eye health. Diets rich in L + Z have long been associated with superior vision and eye health. L + Z are most highly concentrated in the retina and macula of the eye where their unique molecular structure allows them to protect these delicate tissues from high-energy radiation and oxidation. Their concentration in the macula is so high that they provide both its color and its name, since in Latin the macula is called the macula lutea or yellow spot. L + Z are also referred to as “Optical Pigments,” since they also play a key role in the eye's visual systems promoting visual acuity (sharpness of vision), as well as visual processing speed. Zeaxanthin also affords enhanced protection to the macula due to extremely high concentrations at the center of the retina. In short, L + Z are at the top of any list of dietary ingredients that protect our eyes from a lifetime of normal age-related changes. L + Z also protect the skin, but it is the brain where substantial recent research has shown Lutein to be associated with superior cognitive function, memory and verbal fluency with age. The body cannot make L + Z and the typical American diet provides so little that supplementation remains the only viable option of ensuring the vital protection these critical nutrients provide to our eyes, brain and skin. To assure you the greatest benefits possible, we enhance our ultra-high potency blend of Maximum L+Z with the unique balance of plant-based Omega-3 fatty acids from Ahiflower® Oil.

Consume one or more capsules daily or as recommended by your physician. Since Lutein and Zeaxanthin are fat soluble, they are best absorbed when consumed with foods or meals containing a small amount of fat or oil.

I have been using Maximum L + Z for 2 1/2 months. My digestive system is very sensitive to supplements and I have not had much luck with taking supplements. My vision has for years had floaters. Since using this Pro Caps product I have gone from an annoying size of floaters, smaller, then none. There has been no noticeable stomach irritation. I initially took two a day for a couple of weeks and now I take one a day. This product has been a major improvement for my eyesight.

Helps My Floaters
This is an update from my 2019 review. I have floaters in one or both eyes mid day to early evening now, & intermittent blurry vision, mostly early morning. I take 1 of these gelcaps, & it alleviates these symptoms within 15 minutes. I am very excited about that.

I.O.P Down To 10
I got my 1st bottle of Maximum L+Z on 6/7/18 & took 1st dose at bedtime on 6/8/19 (about 9pm). I take 1 capsule of Ultimate Eye Support each morning still, starting on 6/9/19 (I have so much left), & 1 cap of the Maximum L+Z at night. On 6/13/19, I had my biannual Glaucoma Assessment and my intraocular pressure was 10.....TEN!!! The Dr. said the norm is 8-20. My IOP is typically 15 in right eye & 14 in left eye since August 2016. I've been treated with eye drops since 1st diagnosed Feb. 2016. I told my Dr. I started using a bigger Lutein & Zeaxanthin dosage of 12 & 6 respectively on 6/8/19 & he told me what the "current studies" show, which is these 2 supplements really do positively work-everything Mr. Lessman has told us. I am so happy. Plus, there are only 3 ingredients in this tiny capsule, other than the gelatin capsule, which I love. I'm staying on this regime. Thank you so much Procap & Andrew.
