Simple Trick STOPS Vision Loss
It's one of the biggest fears of my patients–and it's not what you'd think.
It’s not cancer, or a heart attack, or even Alzheimer's.
It's the fear of going blind.
And with 12 million Americans experiencing some form of progressive eye disease, it's a legitimate fear.
But it turns out there’s an easy way to stop macular degeneration, the leading cause of vision loss in seniors.
And all it takes is a simple fruit that’s probably sitting in your refrigerator right now.
Macular degeneration is a progress eye disease that occurs when the central portion of the retina deteriorates, leading to the loss of central vision.
This impacts virtually every area of life, from driving to reading–even recognizing the people you love.
And that means that as your central vision deteriorates, so does your quality of life–and ultimately, your independence.
No one really knows what causes macular degeneration, but a recent study has given us a big clue as to how to prevent it.
Eat an orange a day.
Sounds too simple (and tasty) to be true, but there's no denying the connection.
Researchers interviewed over 2,000 adults over 50 years old and then tracked them for 15 years.
Those who ate at least one orange a day had a whopping 60% reduced risk of developing macular degeneration.
But don’t worry, even eating an orange just once a week also showed protective effects against macular degeneration.
The researchers believe it's the flavonoids in the oranges that are responsible for these benefits. However, other foods that are loaded with these plant nutrients (like tea, apples, and red wine) were NOT connected to a reduced risk of macular degeneration.
And that means there’s something about eating a whole orange itself that brings about these eye-saving benefits—and not necessarily any one particular nutrient.
Of course, eating your share of oranges won’t just help you avoid macular degeneration. It can also boost your immune system, help regulate your blood pressure, enhance sexual performance, and boost your mood.
I think I’ll go peel one right now.
