Breakthrough Treatment STOPS Vision Loss
Losing your sight might not end your life — but it certainly ends life as you know it.
Things like our independence… or our ability to drive… or the joy of looking into a loved one’s face… can be gone in an instant.
And you could be at risk for the leading cause of blindness RIGHT NOW, without having a clue.
That’s because glaucoma is a silent disease that strikes without warning.
Once you start to notice changes in your vision, a lot of the damage has already been done.
But now there’s hope.
Because researchers have discovered a natural breakthrough that can help stop glaucoma in its tracks.
And you can get started right away.
Glaucoma occurs when pressure builds up in the eye, which eventually causes damage to the optic nerve.
One of the key factors in this vision loss is the loss of retinal ganglion cells, which are neurons that form the optic nerve.
Neurons are responsible for sending signals to the brain. In this case, they transmit visual cues between the eye and the brain.
In other words… they’re essential for healthy vision.
In the early stages of glaucoma, these cells start to die off – and scientists haven’t found a way to stop it.
In a study published in Scientific Reports, researchers discovered that curcumin (the main component of the spice turmeric) could be just the glaucoma breakthrough we’ve been searching for.
In this study, scientists developed a novel curcumin eyedrop. It pairs curcumin with a nanocarrier that increases curcumin’s solubility 400,000 TIMES.
When they applied this supercharged eyedrop to rats with glaucoma, it was able to stop against the loss of retinal cells.
In other words, it protected against the very cause of irreversible vision loss.
And the fact that it’s in the form of an eyedrop means that the curcumin gets delivered directly where it’s needed most.
Curcumin has numerous properties that make it a common-sense approach for eye protection.
- It’s highly anti-inflammatory (inflammation damages the optic nerve)
- It mimics calorie restriction (which has been shown to protect optic nerve cells)
- It promotes healthy blood flow (ensuring the eyes get the nutrients they need)
- It regulates microglia (immune system cells that protect eye tissue)
…and the list goes on.
More research needs to be done before these eyedrops reach the market, but you can still benefit by taking a curcumin supplement.
Just make sure it also contains black pepper – a key ingredient that boosts the bioavailability by 2,000%.
To a brighter day,

When it comes to taking statins, I advise taking the “better safe than sorry” approach.

When it comes to surviving cancer, the earlier you discover cancer, the better the prognosis. That’s why cancer screening tests are so important.
