It’s tough getting older, isn’t it?
Perhaps you don’t move like you used to…
Your metabolism slows down…
And you can’t even see.
Of course, that last one is especially troubling.
So, let’s talk about how you can PREVENT the world’s No. 1 leading cause of vision loss…
Blurriness, dimness, and more
Cataracts impacts over half of all seniors over 75.
As a result, cataract removal is one of the most common surgeries, with nearly two million performed annually.
See, the lens of your eye naturally thickens and yellows with age. Proteins build up and clump together, forming opaque spots. And this interferes with your eye’s ability to reflect light.
The end result is a cataract—and all the blurred vision, dimness, sensitivity to light, and dulling of colors that comes with it.
Regular eye exams are the best way to stay on top of cataracts. And you should make an appointment with your optometrist right away at the first sign of any vision changes.
If cataracts have developed, the only real “cure” is surgery. The good news is, this procedure has a great reputation for safety.
But let’s talk about a supplemental secret to crystal clear vision that can slam the brakes on this age-related condition…
Lutein is an all-star supplement known to combat age-related macular degeneration.
But it also packs a punch against cataracts.
That’s because free radicals—from excessive ultraviolet (UV) exposure, stress, and suboptimal diet—speed up the cataracts process significantly.
And when you consider lutein’s impressive antioxidant benefits, well, the protection it offers against cataracts comes as no surprise.
According to one lab study, lutein effectively blocks the human lens from harmful UV rays—reducing signs of damage by more than half, and making it 10 times more effective than vitamin E at protecting vision.
Meanwhile, data from the Women’s Health Study shows that higher dietary intake of lutein can lower risk of cataracts by nearly 20 percent!
For most people, I recommend taking 20 mg, twice daily, of lutein to get the best vision-saving results.
And it certainly doesn’t hurt to maximize your intake with good nutrition. So, be sure to also fill up on dark green, yellow, and orange veggies—like spinach, broccoli, kale, bell peppers, and winter squash. Pistachios and egg yolks also contain good dietary sources of lutein.
