How to Prevent Your Eyes From “Rusting Out” As You Age
Few things can impact your independence like failing eyesight. Without good vision, you can’t read…or drive your car…or do many of the things you may have taken for granted your entire adult life. Can you even imagine your daily routine without your ability to see well?
According to the National Eye Institute, nearly 40 million American adults suffer from serious vision impairment and eye problems. But what if I told you that deteriorating vision is not an inevitable part of aging? You can maintain sharp, crystal clear vision into your 60s…70s…80s…and even beyond.
You might be skeptical. But according to gold-standard research conducted by:
- Harvard University
- Mayo Clinic
- Johns Hopkins University
- The National Eye Institute
- And more than 80 other prestigious research institutions…
…Yes, indeed, you can prevent your eyes from “rusting out” and maintain clear, crisp vision as you age by doing just one simple thing!
How to “Bathe” Your Precious Eyes with All of the Essential Nutrients They Need
When we’re young, we take sharp, clear vision for granted, with eyes that never seem to suffer from fatigue, strain or blurred vision. This is largely due to an abundance of nutrients that naturally keep our eyes lubricated and revitalized.
But as we get older, levels of these essential eye nutrients begin to decline. And, as the levels of these nutrients tail off, your vision suffers. You may find yourself squinting to see small print in a book or messages on your phone. And your eyes may get tired and achy when you stare too long at a computer screen.
Even worse: As levels of these essential eye nutrients diminish, it opens the backdoor to other, much more serious eye problems that could eventually even mean losing your vision completely.
Please keep reading, because I’m going to tell you about the one thing you need to do to prevent your eyes from “rusting out” over time to ensure clear, crisp vision at any age!
First Things First: This Is the #1 Cause of Eye Problems — But It’s Preventable
You probably already know how free radicals can damage your health. But you may not know that one particular type of free radical can be especially harmful to your vision.
It’s called the singlet oxygen free radical, and it’s commonly generated in the skin and eyes in response to exposure to UV light from the sun. It can also be generated by exposure to environmental toxins, processed foods, cigarettes and stress.
Have you ever noticed how an apple quickly begins turning brown after the skin is peeled? Or how when metal is left out in the open air it begins to rust? Well, the degeneration of the apple and the rusting of the metal are caused by free radicals like singlet oxygen.
It’s this exact same process that can begin to “rust out” your eyes and degenerate your vision. It can viciously attack the macula of your eyes and the retina. And it reduces lubrication and leads to dry, tired, sore eyes…and a whole lot more.
Nature’s Best Weapon Against the Free Radicals That Attack Your Eyes
Well, imagine if there was a way to halt and even reverse free-radical damage. Imagine that you could quickly coax your vision back to optimal health by supporting your eyes with nutrients that specifically combat this exact type of free-radical damage.
Thankfully, the latest science is showing that you can indeed combat singlet oxygen free radicals with a potent antioxidant that scientists are just beginning to understand, and which most people have never even heard of.
And when you use this powerful antioxidant to reduce the sight-impairing menace of free radicals, you can quickly revitalize and rejuvenate your vision. You will notice sharper focus…reduced eye fatigue…no more dry eyes…reduced irritation…and you can keep your eyes in sparkling condition.
And this revitalization process begins with nature’s most powerful free-radical scavenger.
How an Uncommon Antioxidant Is Re-Energizing Eyesight for Millions
It’s called astaxanthin, and it’s been named “The King of Carotenoids” and “The World’s Best-Kept Health Secret” by the medical press and doctors and scientists from across the nation. And one famous celebrity doctor has called it the “#1 nutrient you’ve never heard of that you should be taking.”
And for good reason: Clinical studies have shown that astaxanthin outperforms every other antioxidant known to science when it comes to destroying the singlet oxygen free radicals that hurt your eyes the most because it is:
- 550 times more powerful than vitamin E
- 800 times better than CoQ10
- 3,000 times stronger than resveratrol and quercetin
- An astonishing 6,000 times more powerful than vitamin C!
Astaxanthin Gets Straight into the Cells of Your Eyes Where You Need It Most
Not only is astaxanthin an extraordinary antioxidant, it also has the ability to do something very few other antioxidants can do: cross the blood-retina barrier — exactly where singlet oxygen free radicals hide and wreak havoc on your vision!
As astaxanthin floods into the cells in your eyes that control vision, harmful free radicals are quickly neutralized, quenching oxidative stress to improve visual acuity and combat eye fatigue. In addition, astaxanthin also can help…[4,6]
- Block UV rays that can strain and damage your eyes
- Boost blood flow to the retina cells
- Cool inflammatory fires in the cells and blood vessels that prevent the transport of blood and nutrients to your eyes
- Boost lens adjustment focus to reduce eyestrain
The Scientific Evidence Is as Strong as Any I’ve Seen
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study done by researchers in Japan, patients were given either astaxanthin or a placebo for four weeks. Results demonstrated improvement in the group taking astaxanthin in two vital areas…
- Visual Acuity: This is the part of your vision that lets you see fine details — like small type in a magazine article or messages on the small screen of your phone.
- Depth Perception: This is what lets you see objects accurately and in detail at long distances and astaxanthin boosted this by 46%! This is especially helpful for essential tasks like driving.
As expected, the patients in the placebo group experienced almost zero changes in visual acuity or depth perception.
The goal of another double-blind, placebo-controlled study was to determine if astaxanthin could boost capillary blood flow to the eyes. At the end of the study, the researchers found that the people in the astaxanthin group had significantly more blood flow to the eyes and the retina cells than those in the placebo group.
So as you can see, astaxanthin’s vision-boosting benefits are both potent and comprehensive. Add it all together, and you can see why astaxanthin is such an impressive vision-boosting powerhouse!
Two Additional Legendary Vision-Boosting Powerhouses!
You may have heard of lutein and zeaxanthin. After astaxanthin, these are, in my opinion, the two most important nutrients for our eyes, especially for the lens, retina and macula, based on overwhelming irrefutable scientific evidence produced by one of the most prolific studies on eye health ever conducted.
A five-year, double-blind, placebo-controlled study run by researchers at the prestigious National Eye Institute and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) involved over 4,200 men and women between ages 50 and 85. It was conducted in 82 different clinical settings across America.
Commonly referred to as “AREDS2,” this clinical trial followed up on the results of the earlier Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) to investigate the effects of different combinations of antioxidants and minerals on eye health. With this trial, the researchers specifically set out to test the effectiveness of lutein and zeaxanthin. And what they discovered was truly amazing.
Results That Changed Everything We Know About Eye Health
The AREDS2 researchers found that a very specific combination of 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin, along with 500 mg of vitamin C, 400 IU of vitamin E, 25 mg of zinc and 2 mg of copper provided remarkably effective support for healthy vision.
Five years of medical studies conducted on thousands of patients has demonstrated the ability of these specific nutrients to help maintain good vision and eye health. Specifically, when these patients used this potent nutrient combination daily, they experienced remarkable results including:
- Sharper, clearer, more focused vision
- Relief from annoying problems like eyestrain and fatigue
- Fewer occasions of blurred vision and dry eyes
- Much better overall eye health
So it’s easy to see why scores of leading medical journals and research institutes — like JAMA, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the National Eye Institute, the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins and dozens more are recommending the AREDS2 nutrient combination for people over 50.
Leading experts are equally impressed. Julia Haller, Ophthalmologist-in-Chief of the highly regarded Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia remarked with regard to taking the AREDS2 blend of nutrients, “This is something patients can do to help ward off eye [issues] and even slow their progression. They can essentially put the brakes on the train.”
All told, this large-scale study was performed in more than 80 different clinical settings across America—producing remarkably consistent results!
So the Science Is Really Convincing, Now What?
Nobody wants to lose one iota of their vision as they age. Yet way too many do. But you don’t have to fall into the trap of thinking vision loss is inevitable — the science tells us that this is simply not true.
I want to quickly summarize what I’ve explained in detail above, because I know I covered a lot:
- Free radicals are the biggest threat to your vision as you age. Ignore them and they can literally rust your eyes out. Neutralize them and you can expect a lifetime of amazing vision.
- Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful antioxidants found on earth. It’s also one of the few antioxidants that can enter the retina, making it the #1 way to neutralize the free radicals menacing your eyes.
- Lutein and zeazanthin are two other powerful antioxidants that are the heroes of the famous AREDS2 study conducted by the National Eye Institute. They are also essential for clear, crisp vision as you age.
If you’re over the age of 50, and you want to protect your vision, you need abundant amounts of these three powerful antioxidants on a daily basis. After all, your vision is your gateway to the world.
So how can you do everything you can to maintain it? Well, a balanced diet is always my first go-to solution but, in this case, food alone doesn’t do the trick. Here’s why:
Astaxanthin is a rare antioxidant only found in very specific and uncommon foods such as wild Pacific sockeye salmon, krill and red trout. The amazing research I cited above is based on a daily intake of 6 mg per day. This is almost impossible to consume on a regular basis from even a healthy diet.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in foods like kale, spinach and turnips. While more readily available in food than astaxanthin, it’s still hard to get the high-potency, research-based amounts on a daily basis.
That’s why I recommend a comprehensive supplement to my readers. It’s the only way to make sure you are getting the vision support you need and deserve.
The Only Vision Support Supplement I Recommend
There are lots of vision support supplements out there. If you look on the label, they seem to have “the right stuff.” But if you actually look at the dosages, they often have just a fraction of what the science shows is required.
Some higher quality supplements will have all of the ingredients from the AREDS2 study, but they make you really pay the price for this. Worst yet, I haven’t found a single AREDS2 formula that also contains the 6 mg of astaxanthin that helps keep your eyes from “rusting out,” leaving your vision exposed to serious threats.
Simply put, without 6 mg of astaxanthin, no vision support formula is complete.
That’s why I decided to formulate my own comprehensive dietary supplement so anyone could easily and affordably benefit from the amazing research at hand to enjoy clear, crisp vision at any age.
You see, in addition to my work with the Live in the Now newsletter, I also run Stop Aging Now, a company that has been making premium-grade dietary supplements for over 20 years. Working with the company’s Scientific Advisory Board, and carefully referencing all of the scientific studies, we created a revolutionary formula called Vision360® ULTRA.
Made with only premium-grade ingredients, I firmly believe Vision360 ULTRA is superior to any product available today. Yet, it’s priced as low as $19.95 per bottle, making it half the price of many “premium” formulas that still don’t even match Vision360 ULTRA’s comprehensive, science-backed formula.
And it comes with a one-year guarantee so, if it doesn’t work, you get every penny back. This way you can try it without risk.
Here’s what makes Vision360 ULTRA your absolute best choice:
- Full Dose Astaxanthin: Vision360 ULTRA contains 6 mg of natural astaxanthin, the most powerful antioxidant on the planet, and the most beneficial antioxidant to fight free radicals that “rust out” your eyes. Many formulas don’t even include it. Those that do often contain a paltry 1 or 2 mg. The science clearly shows that 6 mg is needed.
- AREDS2 Nutrients: Vision360 ULTRA follows the famous AREDS2 study to the letter. It features the required 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin used to produce the extraordinary results detailed above, along with the other AREDS2 cofactors including vitamins C, vitamins E, zinc and copper.
- Other Essential Eye-Friendly Nutrients: Vision360 ULTRA also contains potent doses of vitamins B2, B12 and D3. These essential vitamins have been shown to help combat irritation, assist in healthy tear production, fight ocular inflammation, keep the lens of the eye healthy and much more.
- Quality You Can Trust: Vision360 ULTRA is made in a state-of-the-art FDA-inspected facility. That means every capsule is guaranteed to meet the highest quality standards. No second-rate ingredients. No cutting corners.
