The 2 Best NATURAL Approaches
No matter the reason for your poor vision, you aren’t doomed to frustrating corrective lenses, squinting, or painful strain headaches any longer.
Even if you’re suffering from age-related vision loss, you don’t have to keep slapping new layers of lens to those coke-bottle glasses.
Sounds too good to be true, I know. But thorough new clinical research has revealed that there are two easy, all-natural steps you can take to actively improve your vision.
These steps were proven not just to maintain your prescription, but actually improve your vision, so that you can see clearly–near or far, day or night–for the rest of your life.
#1 – Reverse Micronutrient Deficiencies
Research has shown that taking multivitamins and certain types of fatty acids aren’t just beneficial for healthy bones or fighting heart disease. They keep your eyes healthy by keeping them moist, relaxed, and nourished with optimal blood flow. They can even prevent cataracts, glaucoma and night-blindness, keeping you safe on the road for decades to come.
Here are the top seven micronutrients–and the scientifically recommended doses–that will reverse any deficiencies you currently have and boost your eye health for the future.
1. Black Currant Extract — 50mg
A recent study published in the Alternative Medicine Review showed that the active ingredient in black currants–cyanidin-3-glucoside (C3G)–strengthens your vision by day and by night. This potent polyphenol also helps regenerate the molecules in your eyes that help you see in the dark… and amazingly, generates positive benefits in less than 30 minutes.
2. Astaxanthin — 2mg
This amazing terpene has been shown to improve nutrition and moisture in the eyes. It helps keep all the blood vessels–from larger arteries to tiny capillaries–elastic and moist. Your eyes will be less dry, red and itchy… and you won’t have to strain so hard to see.
3. Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) — 50mg
This antioxidant has been shown to fight off retinal disorders, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). Plus, studies have also confirmed ALA can prevent vision loss in diabetic patients.
4. Grape Seed Extract — 200mg
This superhero antioxidant fights the damage of free radicals, a natural product of oxidation in the body. But it also has been shown to help over-worked eyes relax. Because the delicate muscles and nerves in our eyes are constantly working, relaxation is essential to healing your vision.
5. Bilberry Extract — 10mg
Extract from this petite blue berry helps your eyes adjust quickly to the darkness and helps prevent night blindness. The active ingredients, anthocyanosides, are powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. If you have problems driving at night or reading in low light, this is the berry for you.
6. & 7. Lutein (10mg) and Zeaxanthin (2mg)
You’ve always heard that carrots are good for your eyes, right? It’s because of the high concentration of beta-carotene. Lutein and zeaxanthin are two more powerful carotenoids, and together, are one potent sight-saving duo.
- An American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study showed lutein and zeaxanthin protect your eyes from UV rays, fight free radical damage, and boost circulation.
- A study from the Harvard Medical School showed that high concentrations of these carotenoids reduced the risk of ARMD by 82%.
- A follow-up Harvard study found that in 77,000 nurses, lutein and zeaxanthin reduced cataract-risk by 22%.
#2 – Visualization
The power of visualization has been seen in thousands–if not hundreds of thousands–of cases around the world, both reported and unreported, in clinical trials, psychology, athletic performance, academic performance, reducing travel anxiety, and much more.
Visualization is the act of imagining a certain scenario and what you will do in it. Amazingly, visualization has been shown to improve your physical vision too.
It works in two ways: physically and psychologically.
Physically, periods of visualization allow your eyes to relax.
Psychologically, when you imagine yourself seeing clearly… reading the newspaper without squinting or wearing magnifiers… seeing at night clear as crystal… your brain and subconscious start to believe it, thereby enacting them as truth on your physical body.
The power of the human brain truly is not understood. The power you have in your life to change things even as seemingly permanent as your eyesight is far understated.
That’s a lot of things to take into consideration. That’s why we’ve created the Eye Essentials kit to help you get started with these two action steps. It includes the Eye Health Essentials formula, a twice-daily supplement that includes all of the micronutrients listed here–and at the dosage recommended by successful clinical trials.
It also includes a guided visualization audio CD that helps you reduce eye strain and fatigue while improving vision in just thirty minutes a day. True vision improvement occurs when you allow your tired, overworked eyes to relax. You may not feel it all the time, but every single part of your eye–from your cornea to your optic nerve–is being constantly used and abused during every waking moment.
This guided visualization is called “See Your Way Clearly,” and it is a powerful guide for reducing eye strain. You’ll also learn excellent new habits that will reduce migraines caused by eye strain, boost your focus, and allow you to experience complete relaxation for a full half hour every day.
With the combined power of scientifically-proven nutrition and visualization, you’ll be doing everything in your power to fight cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and vision loss.
Not only that, but you can actually maintain your prescription from year to year… and even improve your vision. Whether you are near-sighted, far-sighted, or are already suffering from age-related vision loss symptoms, the Eye Essentials kit can help!
