Default Low-Glycemic Diet Prevent Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Quote:
BOSTON -- Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and its associated vision loss may be connected to the quality of carbohydrates an individual consumes. In a study published in the July issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Allen Taylor, PhD, director of the Laboratory for Nutrition and Vision Research at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (USDA HNRCA) at Tufts University, and colleagues confirmed earlier findings linking dietary glycemic index with the risk of developing AMD.

Default Antioxidants and Minerals Improve ARMD

Quote:
In a randomized, controlled trial involving 27 patients with non-advanced age-related macular degeneration, supplementation with a mixture of carotenoids and antioxidants for a period of 12 months was found to improve a particular dysfunction in the central retina.

...

Group1 received supplementation with vitamin C (180 mg/d), vitamin E (30 mg/d), zinc (22.5 mg/d), copper (1 mg/d), lutein (10 mg/d), zeaxanthin (1 mg/d), and astaxanthin (4 mg/d), for a period of 12 months, while Group2 was left untreated.

...

These results suggest that supplementation with carotenoids and antioxidants may offer benefit to patients with non-advanced age-related macular degeneration.
