Read an important Health Treatment Notice about personal health issues.

Vision loss in Age-related Macular Degeneration, or AMD, is due to the irreversible death of photoreceptors and/or the invasion of leaky, unwanted blood vessels into the retina. At advanced stages of this progressive disease, everyday activities such as reading, driving, or even seeing the face of a loved one become impossible.  It is estimated that more than 17 million Americans may have symptoms of AMD and that 2 million having functional blindness; 500,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. 

Diabetic Retinopathy is the most common diabetic eye disease that occurs when blood vessels in the retina change. Sometimes vessels swell and leak fluid or even close off completely. In other cases, abnormal new blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina. NSC Eyecare Formula contains multiple eye nutritional aids including Chromium and Red Raspberry to assist in normalizing blood sugar levels and Quercetin to reduce blood leakage in the retina.

MG Beta Glucan joins with Lutein, Eyebright, L-Taurine, Copper, Zinc, Bilberry Extract, B Complex Vitamins, Zeaxanthin and Astaxanthin plus additional ingredients known to nutritionally help promote eye wellness while minimizing eye stress factors that can negatively influence vision. The specific areas of benefit for each ingredient are shown below.

N-Acetyl -L-Cysteine combines with Vitamin C, B2 and Selenium to enhance natural body production and recycling of Glutathione, essential for eye health, including Glutathione's inhibiting properties for cataract and macular degeneration development.  Vitamin E and Vitamin C act together to reduce intra-ocular pressure, a negative factor in glaucoma. Dietary zeaxanthin (zee-uh-zan'-thin) plays an essential role in protecting the retina of the eye from the damaging effects of light. 

From the many carotenoids in the diet, the human retina selectively accumulates only two: zeaxanthin and lutein. Their concentration is so high in the macula, (the retinal region responsible for fine visual activities) that the carotenoids are visible as a dark yellow spot called the macular pigment. Macular pigment has been implicated as a risk factor in age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the most prevalent cause of vision loss in the elderly.
Because these lutein and zeaxanthin absorb blue light, and because they are powerful antioxidants, scientists have hypothesized that they protect the retina.

Your eyes are essential to good health and positive aging through promotion of an active mind - NSC-24 Eye-Care Formula is an important part of the IMMUNITION arsenal to nutritionally help win your body war!

Macular Degeneration – AMD

By Jeffrey Anshel, O.D., FAAO, Contributing Editor,

National Products Insider (www.naturalproductsinsider.com)

[Eye Health] Vol. 18 No. 5 Sept/Oct 2013 – Examining AREDS2 Study Results

The macula is the area of the retina that is used for direct, central vision. It is a highly sensitive part of the retina. The macula begins to degenerate in one out of every four people over the age of 65, and in one out of every three people over the age of 80. Since this process is a function of age, it is termed “age-related macular degeneration” (AMD).

There are two types of AMD – a wet form and a dry form. The wet form accounts for only 10 percent of cases. It occurs when tiny abnormal blood vessels begin to grow behind the retina, toward the macula. These abnormal vessels often leak blood and fluid, which damages the macula, causing rapid and severe vision loss. This typically follows the dry form, which constitutes the other 90 percent of cases and occurs when small, yellowish deposits called drusen start to accumulate beneath the macula. These deposits gradually break down the light-sensing cells in the macula, causing distorted vision in the eye.

Macular degeneration does not result in total blindness. Peripheral vision usually remains intact and can allow for varying levels of independence. However, a person afflicted with AMD can feel helpless and frustrated due to the loss of direct detail vision.  Certain risk factors can increase the risk for AMD. Age is a big factor and one that is not under one’s control. Other factors include exposure to certain types of high-energy blue light; smoking, which more than doubles the risk of AMD; genetics; and gender.

Diet and nutrition also affect risk. The macula’s fragile cells are highly susceptible to damage from the oxygen-charged molecules called free radicals. Research shows people with a low dietary intake of antioxidants may be at a higher risk of developing AMD. In addition, alcohol may deplete the body of antioxidants. Furthermore, people with high blood pressure or another form of heart disease may also be at higher risk for developing AMD due to poor blood circulation to the eyes. [Note: Type II diabetes also]

Nutrition is certainly something we have some control over, and good nutrition has proven beneficial in regard to AMD. The largest study of nutritional treatment for AMD was concluded in the late 1990s. This study was call the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS). Daily supplementation from phase one of the Study provided beta-carotene (15 mg), vitamin C (500 mg), vitamin E (400 IU), zinc oxide (80 mg) and copper oxide (2 mg). The results showed while AMD was not prevented or reversed, the progression from state III to stage IV (the most advances stages) was slowed.

The follow-up study, called the AREDS2 Study, was published in May 2013. It was a multi-center, randomized trial designed to assess the effects of oral supplementation of macular xanthophylls (10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin) and/or long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (350 mg docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and 650 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) daily on the progression to advanced AMD. This study was not truly placebo-controlled as the control group received a variation of the AREDS original formula void of beta-carotene and with reduced levels of zinc (25 mg). An additional goal of the Study through secondary randomization is to assess whether this variation of the original AREDS nutritional supplement with reduced zinc and no beta-carotene works as well as lutein, zeaxanthin and/or omega-3.

The results showed lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation slowed progression to advanced AMD by an additional 10 percent more than the AREDS1 formulation in the overall Study population. The authors did not claim this to be significant as the Study objective was to slow progression by an additional 25 Percent more than AREDS1 results. Though the desired result was not achieved, this landmark study clearly demonstrated that zeaxanthin and lutein supplementation slowed progression to advanced AMD by an additional 10 percent.

The reduction in progression to advanced AMD is even greater (26 percent) in Study subjects with the lowest intake of lutein and zeaxanthin in their diet, typically less then 1 mg per day. The Study also looked at the effects of EPA/DHA from fish oil. Primary analysis concluded that omega-3 consumption did not further reduce progression to advanced AMD in the AREDS2 Study; however, secondary analysis is required to fully understand this component of the Study, being that DHA represents more than 50 percent of the fatty acids in the retina.

One must remember the subjects in the AREDS2 Study were considered “well-nourished,” and almost 90 percent of them were taking an additional supplement (Centrum Silver). More data from this Study is currently being reviewed and is expected to be released in the years to come.
