A Medical Food is not a supplement. It is not a drug either. Per Section 5(b) of the Orphan Drug Act, Medical Foods are a regulated category of product “… formulated to be consumed or administered enterally under the supervision of a physician and intended for the specific dietary management of a disease or condition for which distinctive nutritional requirements, based on recognized scientific principles, are established by medical evaluation.”
The powerful Medical Foods developed, manufactured and distributed by Guardion Health Sciences, Lumega-Z and Glaucocetin, are designed specifically for dietary management of specific conditions. Lumega-Z is designed to restore and replenish a depleted macular pigment and Glaucocetin is designed to reverse underlying mitochondrial dysfunction in optic serve cells. A depleted macular pigment is a major risk factor for macular degeneration, while mitochondrial dysfunction is thought to lead to optic nerve damage and vision loss in glaucoma patients.
