ENCORE: Macular Degeneration, Part 1
September 4, 2018
Macular degeneration (AMD) is a major cause of blindness for American seniors. AMD is also one of the few medical conditions where nutritional therapy remains the mainstay of treatment, in the absence of drug “fixes.” Dr. Thomas Guilliams explains why antioxidants, Omega 3 fatty acids, and carotenoids are logical choices for preventing or slowing the progression of AMD; Is there evidence that healthy diets confer protection against AMD? What about exercise? What’s the difference between “wet” and “dry” AMD? Why are free radicals such a problem for the eye? What role does DHA play in eye health? How do lutein and zeaxanthin act like “internal sunglasses” in the eyes? What are main dietary sources of lutein and zeaxanthin? What are some of the controversies in eye research? What nutrients at what doses should the ideal eye supplement contain? Are additional benefits to be had from the addition of taurine, l-carnitine, n-acetylcysteine (NAC), quercetin, or sulforaphane?
