Macular degeneration can sometimes be a vicious disease. It causes many people to lose much of their eyesight. In turn, that can cause them to lose their independence and sometimes their dignity.
Now, Jeff McAnnally of Macular Health says there’s a new vitamin some are calling a miracle. It’s a vitamin that was part of years of medical studies which found that vitamins A, C, E, Zinc and Copper actually slow the progression of macular degeneration by 25 percent.
Jeff’s grandmother suffered from the disease and he could not stand the affect it was having on her. He teamed up with an eye doctor and Macular Health was formed. It is about two years old now and it’s been the eye of many doctors all over the world now.
McAnnally says don’t take his word for it. A patient, Barney Headley, said he was having some major sight problems.
“I was going blind fast with macular degeneration. I got to the point where I could only see about 50 feet in front of my car in the daylight. At night time I couldn't see any white lines.”
After taking the macular vitamin for about three months, he noticed a significant change in his day vision. He says it was like seeing through the haze down the road.
At night, Headley's vision improved by 60 percent.
“My doctor told me that the vitamin has arrested my macular progression and that my eyes are clearer than he’s ever seen them.”
Similar products call for four pills a day. This product is one pill a day. Patients who have a hard time swallowing pills can actually pull the capsule apart and mix it in juice.
Another advantage is the cost, only about $14.00.
The vitamins work for both wet and dry Macular Degeneration. To find out more long onto the website: www.macularhealth.com.
