February is Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Awareness Month highlighting how 10 million Americans are showing evidence of the condition.

Some of the risk factors associated with AMD include high blood pressure, obesity, smoking and a family history of AMD. It’s also believed that Caucasians and females are more likely to have AMD, although it’s not known why.

The cause of AMD is still unknown although there are two types – wet and dry. Dry AMD is thought to be caused by aging and thinning macular tissues along with pigment deposits within the macula. While Wet AMD happens when blood vessels start growing beneath the retina, leaking fluid and blood. The leakage can cause the retinal cells to die and this creates blind spots in the central vision.

There is thought to be no known treatment for curing AMD however if it’s detected early it’s possible to minimize or slow vision loss and improve the vision over time.

AMD can be improved however, by taking the right nutrients to promote eye health. MaxiFocus contains high levels of the carotenoids Lutein and Zeaxanthin, along with 22 vitamins and minerals that have been identified in studies as being essential for eye health.

Serrapeptase can help with clearing inflammation and encouraging healthy blood flow and circulation to the eyes, while a supplement spray containing Taurine can reduce any oxidative damage that’s caused by sunlight in the eyes.

If you have diabetic retinopathy, studies have shown that the HealthPoint device could stimulate ATP and cellular regeneration while Krill containing concentrated Omega 3, 6 and 9 oils can protect cell membranes essential for eye health. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, consider taking Hemp Seed Oil to attain similar effects.

Astaxanthin is recommended due to it being a powerful antioxidant that can support healthy eyes, while MSM+Silver can equalize pressure, repairing damaged membranes.  Active Life meanwhile contains a full spectrum of liquid, highly absorbable multivitamins and minerals designed to support overall eye health.

When all of the above nutrients are taken on a consistent basis, alongside a healthy nutritional and lifestyle plan, it’s possible to see significant improvements in your eye health, long term.
