Vitamin B3 effective at preventing glaucoma in mice.
Vitamin B3 May Help to Prevent Eye Disease, Blindness
With glaucoma being the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the United States, affecting three million Americans, and being the second leading cause of blindness in the world, it is imperative that research continues to try to find answers to this debilitating eye disease.
According to a new study supplementing the body with vitamin B3 as found in NeuraBoost may help to boost the metabolic reliability of eye cells.
Researchers found that when supplementing mice who were genetically predisposed to glaucoma with vitamin B3, a natural option they did not develop the condition because of the boost given to the metabolic reliability of ageing eye cells keeping them healthier for a longer time.
Glaucoma is a common eye condition, and, once vision is lost, it cannot be recovered. The condition causes damage to the optic nerve of the eye, getting worse as time passes. It is linked to a pressure build up inside the eye. The increased pressure can do damage to the optic nerve that transmits images to the brain.
Glaucoma can be treated with medication, eye drops, or surgery to slow the progress. However, the Mayo Clinic reported that even with treatment, approximately 15 percent of individuals that have glaucoma will become blind in at least one eye within 20 years of appearance of the first symptoms. Without proper treatment, total permanent blindness could occur within a few years.
Common symptoms of glaucoma include eye pain, severe headaches, patchy spots in or blurring of vision, halos around light, eye redness, nausea and vomiting, and tunnel vision in the late stages.
To catch glaucoma in the early stages, the American Academy of Ophthalmology's recommendation is screenings for glaucoma each four years after age 40 and each two years after age 60.
Other recommendations state that if you are over age 40 and have a family history of glaucoma, you should get a complete exam from an eye doctor every one to two years. If you suffer from health problems such as diabetes or are at risk for other eye diseases, it may be necessary to go more often.
The research team is now planning to enter clinical trials that will test the effectiveness of vitamin B treatment in actual glaucoma patients and are hoping that the results will repeat those found in mice.
Supplementing the diet with a vitamin B complex such as that found in NeuraBoost from www.getyourboomback.today could provide an affordable and safe alternative natural support to keep eye cells from wearing down and becoming predisposed to developing glaucoma.
