Are you worried about Age-related Macular Degeneration? 👀
Over 7,000 new cases of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) are diagnosed every year in Ireland, often at a stage when damage has already been caused to vision. AMD is a disease that causes the gradual loss of sight due to blurring or loss of central vision. This is often as a result of a deterioration of the macula, a yellow pigmented structure at the back of the eye that is responsible for our detailed colour vision.
Smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, a diet high in unsaturated fats and simple carbohydrates and lack of exercise all increase the risk of AMD, but you can reduce your risk by taking Lutein Omega 3 as part of your daily routine.
Lutein Omega 3 is a nutritional supplement supporting healthy eyesight, it includes Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Vitamins C and E, Copper, Zinc, combined with fish oil rich in DHA1. These agents are recommended to reduce the risk or slow the progression of AMD which is the leading cause of sight loss for those aged over 50 in Ireland.
