When it comes to healthy aging, the eyes have it.
You can get a little slower… a little grayer… and struggle with things like back and knee pain or hearing loss. But nothing, and I mean NOTHING, can put a cramp in your style quite like vision loss.
When your eyes go, you lose more than just the ability to watch TV or read my letters. You can lose your independence.
I don’t want that to happen to you. And it doesn’t have to. Because I’ve got a plan that could help ensure you have the eyes of an eagle on the hunt well into your golden years.
And it starts… by avoiding those Golden Arches.
Because new research reveals how certain foods can rob you of your eyesight, leading directly to the number one cause of vision loss in seniors age-related macular degeneration.
But if you can spot and avoid them, you can stop the damage and save your eyesight.
The diet link to macular degeneration
You know what junk food does to your waistline.
And you don’t need me to tell you that eating too much processed food and other junk can lead to heart problems… stroke… diabetes… dementia… and more.
But a new study shows how it can ALSO lead to one more serious problem… vision loss. Specifically, a Western diet could cause age-related macular degeneration.
And that’s especially true if you eat a lot of…
- processed foods
- processed meats
- fried foods
- sugary desserts
- refined grains
- sugary drinks
In fact, according to researchers, the typical western diet can TRIPLE your risk of late-stage AMD, which is just what it sounds like. It’s when the macular degeneration reaches its most advanced stages leading to severe vision loss and even blindness.
The good news is the damage takes a LONG TIME to set in. As much as 18 years. So if you’re NOT suffering from vision loss yet, it’s not too late to take action, eat a little better and save those peepers.
EAT your way to BETTER vision
But don’t just avoid that processed junk I mentioned earlier. For MAXIMUM protection against macular degeneration, eat more of the foods that can help PROTECT your eyesight.
That means focusing on colorful fruits and veggies that are naturally rich in vision-boosting nutrients. As well as eating more foods that contain healthy omega-3 fats.
Three you can’t miss with are…
- leafy greens
- cold-water fatty fish
- citrus fruits
And make sure you get plenty of those top-of-the-alphabet nutrients, including vitamins A, B, C, and D.
If you ARE battling vision problems… or, worse yet, if you’re in the early stages of age-related macular degeneration… you might think you’re up a creek.
Don’t panic. You’re not. A combo of two powerful nutrients has been shown to slow the progression of macular degeneration. And this eye-friendly tag team can help ensure you keep your vision – and your independence – longer.
Look for a supplement formula built around vision-supporting lutein and zeaxanthin.
