Well, folks, the proof is in.
A simple vitamin supplement can help fight macular degeneration and other eye diseases caused by aging.
We’ve been waiting patiently for the results of the AREDS2 study conducted in Germany, and the results are in.
A short summary of the results are available here. We’ve also talked about this before.
First, a little background.
It’s been theorized that antioxidants can help delay the progression of various eye diseases, such as macular degeneration.
However, it’s been difficult to find a) the exact combination of antioxidants that prevent eye disease, and b) a dose of this combination of antioxidants.
Earlier studies looked at whether fish oil could help prevent eye disease. Unfortunately, those studies didn’t show much of an effect.
Now this study included 172 patients with age-related macular degeneration. So they already had active disease.
The patients were split into three groups:
Group 1 patients received a supplement of 10 mg lutein, 1 mg zeaxanthin, 100 mg DHA, and 30 mg EPA daily.
Group 2 patients received twice the dose of Group 1.
Group 3 received placebo (sugar capsules).
Eye exams were carried periodically during the course of a year while the patients were taking these supplements.
And the results?
Well, the results are quite incredible.
If you’re inclined, take a look at the paper in detail. But we’d like to point you to Figure 5.
Antioxidant formula increases optical density!
The long and the short of it is that this supplement does indeed increase optical density, which is a measure of disease progression.
Fortunately, many of you have already taken precautions to protect your eyesight with Ocu-Omega. Ocu-Omega is a blend of lutein, zeaxanthin, and omega 3 fatty acids to promote eye health and prevent disease progression.
Plus, Ocu-Omega is less than $1 a day!
