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.”
Lumega-Z is a medical food formulated to restore and maintain the condition of a depleted macular pigment. Containing all three macular carotenoids – Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-zeaxanthin – as well as a robust complex of critical micronutrients and Omega 3s, Lumega-Z has a high efficiency of absorption due to its micronized lipid-based liquid formulation, and is proven to restore a depleted macular pigment.
As a medical food, Lumega-Z is guaranteed to have the highest quality ingredients.
Qualifying as a medical food validates the impeccable quality control of micronutrients and ensures the formula is precisely tailored to treat or manage a specific disease or condition. Medical foods must be recommended and administered under the supervision of a physician or professional healthcare provider, once deemed necessary after medical evaluation.
