Stop macular degeneration
in just 90 days
Eye disease is perhaps the biggest concern of my readers. Macular degeneration in particular. Because conventional medicine doesn’t offer much hope with macular degeneration, I’m always looking for ways to stop and reverse the disease. I’ve written about many of the remedies I’ve found in the past. But today, I have an exciting report about a superfood that protects the macula!
The news comes from a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study on 150 healthy elderly subjects. The researchers conducting this study gave goji berries in a proprietary milk-based formulation called “Lacto-Wolfberry.” The participants took 13.7 grams/day for 90 days.
After the three months, the researchers compared these participants to those taking a placebo. They found those taking the goji berries had superior macular preservation. Specifically, the placebo group developed hypopigmentation and soft Drusen in the macula, both signs of disease progression. Pigment is a critical part of retina structure. Drusen is waste material.
The goji group remained stable. Furthermore, the goji group enjoyed significant increases in plasma zeaxanthin (25%) and antioxidant capacity (57%). No such improvement was noted in the placebo group. Zeaxanthin is one of the most important bioflavonoid protectors for your retina.

I have not seen this proprietary product for sale anywhere. However, I’m not sure that it’s necessary. Goji berries are widely available and are one of the richest sources of these super nutrients on the planet. You might remember that I carried goji berries on my arduous John Muir Trail Trek. I think so highly of these berries that I’m now growing them in my yard.
Feel free to eat as many goji berries as you want. They’re great for your eyes and your whole body. I’ll have more on this wonderful fruit in the future.
