More proof that nutrients
can stop blindness
If you have macular degeneration, an article in the prestigious American Journal of Clinical Nutrition serves as a reminder for help. The article says that taking eye-sparing nutrients likely will benefit AMD sufferers. What's more, they might "possibly" benefit those who suffer with cataracts.

The article said the target nutrients the researchers reviewed included vitamins C and E, beta carotene, zinc, copper, lutein, and zeaxanthin. They also recommended omega-3 fatty acids.

I believe you can prevent AMD by eating a diet rich in these nutrients. However, if you have AMD, or are concerned about it, there's lots of help available.

Regarding cataracts, anything that can help you increase your body's glutathione may help prevent visual loss. Glutathione protects the proteins in your lens from oxidative damage and cross linking.

If you already have a cataract, I'm still getting great feedback on the DMSO drops I formulated. In fact, I receive more email about this formula than just about any other topic. Again, you can find all the details about it on my website. You'll need to have a prescription from your eye doctor and a compounding pharmacist that can make it. The formula is DMSO 6%, vitamin C 1.25%, and glutathione 1.25%.
