This antioxidant lowers your risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in just 10 days

This Nutrient Can Save Your Failing Eyesight

There are some parts about getting older that are downright terrifying. And going blind is certainly near the top of the list.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in people age 50 and over.1 And it affects more than 60 million people around the globe.

Most often, the problems begin in the macula. It’s the part of the retina that controls central vision. This allows you to clearly focus in front of you and see fine details, like faces. Taking care to protect and support your retinal health is the single best way to prevent problems in the macula.

You can cut your risk of developing AMD and other vision problems with a sight-saving antioxidant. It’s special in that it can cross the blood-brain barrier. This allows it to reach the retina.

This nutrient is 65 times more powerful than vitamin C at fighting damaging free radicals and oxidative stress. And 54 times more potent than beta-carotene.2

This compound lowers your risk of AMD in just 10 days.

Astaxanthin (pronounced asta-zan-thin) is the natural carotenoid that gives salmon their vibrant color. Not only does it get to where you need it most, astaxanthin improves blood circulation to the eyes. This is critical if you want to keep your eyesight crystal clear.

And just a little bit goes a long way.

Supplementing with 6 mg a day for just 10 days can shorten the time it takes for blood to circulate through the eyes by 12%.3 This helps get nutrients to your eyes. It also means astaxanthin quickly flushes out free radicals that can damage retina health.

The best sources of astaxanthin are wild-caught salmon and krill oil. One, six-ounce serving of wild-caught salmon has about 4 mg. But if you don’t feel like eating salmon every day, you can find it as a supplement in most health food stores and online.

Nobody wants the faces of friends and family to fade. Adding 6 to 8 mg of astaxanthin to your daily routine can prevent AMD and keep your vision clear as you age.

In Good Health,

  1. I’ve been taking a vision formula twice a day containing 4 mg of astaxanthin for quite some time now and am not seeing any improvement in my eyesight. If anything it continues to worsen lately and my latest eye exam is showing the possible onset of glaucoma. A couple years ago I was treated for ARMD with an injection of Avastin and that did arrest the symptoms of MD and it still seems mostly stable. I am 74 yrs. old and have severe myopia which is corrected with glasses but I also have the beginning of cataracts which my ophthalmologist refuses to remove because I am at a greater risk of detached retina. I’ve tried many natural solutions but am starting to fell that I’m doomed to become mostly blind in the not too distant future.

    2. Hello Richard O, how or in what form are you getting/taking 4 mg (OR MORE) of Astaxanthin daily? The average softgel contains just 150 MCG and the recommended dosage is ONE softgel daily on the 2 brands I checked (Kirkland and Mega Red Krill Oil). Please advise. Thanks.

  3. Low eye vision is very common in people those sit long in front of computer and unhealthy diet every day. So, it is my person opinion that we have to go for check up with an optician and should take proper diet with full of natural ingredients that are helpful to solve your eye vision problem. The best nutrient for better eye vision is Vitamins A, C, E and minerals zinc and copper. So, eat healthy and live healthy.
