Prevention of Age-related Macular Degeneration – AMD is very easy yet many people just take their eyes for granted because there is lack of education about the eyes. I am the first to admit that I knew NOTHING of eye diseases till I started consuming Izumio and Super Lutein. But I am so glad I did because it is a very serious thing losing your vision!!!
Firstly, what is Age-related Macular Degeneration? Someone with AMD, will lose a part of their vision like this below. The central part of their view gets distorted or blanked out altogether. Fun? Yes and no.
Fun as in, you get to guess what is missing?
This is a cross section of your eye. Gosh, it is like being in High School all over again and studying my Biology. Did any of you memorise this? I remember I did!!! Hahahaha!!! I must’ve been nuts.
So if you look at the right side of this cross section, you will see a small bump called the Fovea Centralis and that, ladies and gentlemen, is your MACULA. It is a spot that attracts all the light that enters our eyes and focuses like a muscle that squeezes all the light that enters the eye so you can see a CLEAR image.
Unfortunately, because it is made out of cells like the rest of our body, free radicals will attack it just like it attacks any other part of our body.
What causes our body to have FREE RADICALS?
1. Bad Habits – such as eating bad food, sleeping late, drinking alcohol, smoking, you know, lifestyle habits.
2. Environmental Factors – Pollution, inhalation of paint and fumes, sun rays, radiation, etc.
3. Internal Factors – such as breathing and stress.
These FREE RADICALS can go ANYWHERE in our body to cause disease. And if they reach our macula, that is when we go uh-oh, we are on our way to playing guess the image.
Now think about it. Do YOU want to lose your vision? Do you want to stop driving?
Here’s how you can be at risk:
1. Smoke regularly
2. Be Caucasian. Prevalence of AMD in Caucasians is higher compared to African Americans and Latinos. Asians get it about the same after a certain age.
3. Have AMD genes. There are about 20 genes that will gear you towards AMD and if you are unfortunate enough to have one, all the more reason you should think about preventing age-related macular degeneration – AMD.
4. Go out into the sun a lot without protecting your eyes
5. Drink alcohol regularly
6. Eat lots of sugar till you become obese (like me, yikes!)
7. Having High Blood Pressure and Heart Disease will increase your AMD risk
Does that sound like fun? Do you think you are anywhere near getting AMD? If yes, here’s what you can do:-
1. Do not smoke
2. Exercise regularly so the blood vessels in your eyes get their necessary circulation too
3. Maintain your blood pressure
4. Be conscious of what you eat and eat lots of healthy green leafy vegetables and fish
5. Take Izumio and Super Lutein. Duh. But of course!
Now the BAD thing about age-related macular degeneration – AMD, is that it comes without symptoms, just like lung cancer. I know because I have 3 terminal lung cancer patients, bless them all.
And that is freaking scary. AMD is categorised into 3 steps, early, intermediate and late. The first 2 steps have ZERO symptoms so basically, when you are in an advanced stage, it is almost too late. Then you start having injections into your eyes to prevent yourself from going blind.
The below are links about AMD and studies that show that Lutein and Zeaxanthin help the prevention of age-related macular degeneration – AMD. Super Lutein has THE BEST source of Lutein and Zeaxanthin in the entire global market as it is the Rolls Royce of eye products. You may find many more lutein products in the pharmacies and even in their own stores (know the pharmaceutical supplement brand that got in the New York Times lately that was slammed for sub-standard quality?) BUT do they have FloraGlo lutein? And not only do they have FloraGlo lutein, you have to make sure you are not getting just the lutein esters as those are not easily absorbed by the eyes so what for? Pay RM100 but nothing happens. Don’t waste your money. Get something that has been proven to work. You could even consume Super Lutein for FREE if you wanted to. You just need to find enough people to join you in a GROUP BUY.
