Macular degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of irreversible vision loss in the United States, occurring as a result of deterioration of the central portion of the retina known as the macula. Approximately 85-90% of the cases are of the dry type. Although the cause of AMD remains unknown, researchers continue to find a positive correlation between the onset of the disease with genetic susceptibility, the effect of normal aging, low levels of serum and dietary antioxidants, and low levels of lutein and zeaxanthin in the macula of the retina of the eye.

The following supplements are suggested:
1.Ginkgo biloba
, 120 mg a day (dry type) – 2 daily
2.Life Complete – Two capsules daily
3.Anti-Oxidants – mega potency – 3 daily
4.Lutein/Zeazanthin – Two capsules daily .

5.Multi-Minerals with Zinc, 30 mg (wet type) – One daily .
6.Life-oil EPA / DHA - One capsule three times a day (for the dry and wet types).
