Vision/Eye System

Vision/Eye System Health Concerns:  Macular degeneration, dry eye, glaucoma, conjunctivitis (pink eye), diabetic eye issues, retinopathy, and blindness


Your eyes are vital to perceiving visual senses and analyzing the world of light and color around you.

Your eyes can see 50 different objects a second, distinguish 10 million different colors, 80 percent of learning comes through the eyes, see a candle 1.7 miles away, and blinks 12 times a minute to wash your eyes.  Without your eyes, life can be very difficult.  Nourishing them is very much like the other systems; take nutrients that support them and ward off free radical damage over time as well as having regular checkups.

Any of the above health concerns can be devastating to your eyesight.  Just glaucoma alone has been diagnosed with more than 2.7 million people suffering from this slow blindness. According to the National Eye Institute in 2010, 2.1 million Americans had macular degeneration (AMD), 24.4 million had cataracts and 7.7 million had diabetic eye issues.  These numbers are expected to double by 2050.

Be on guard and be pro-active in preventing serious and sometimes blinding eye conditions with a complex eye supplement and stop smoking.  You heard it right – stop smoking for dozens of reasons!!

And have an eye exam every year!
