Mailbag! $2 Cure for Glaucoma?

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

You’ve got questions…

We’ve got answers!

Glaucoma is one the toughest things you can be diagnosed with.  And with it comes irreversible vision loss that could lead to darkness, confusion, a loss of freedom and many difficult lifestyle changes.

And that’s why today we are going to address a very important reader question about how to prevent glaucoma before it starts for just two bucks a month!

Let’s dive in…

Hi, Natalie,

My friend was telling me that there’s a vitamin that could help prevent glaucoma, and I would like to try it.  But I can’t remember what is. Do you know anything about it?


Pat S.

Thanks for the great question, Pat. Glaucoma is a concern for many of our readers.

Recent research shows that vitamin B3 can help prevent the development of glaucoma in mice, so this is likely what your friend was talking about.

In this study, researchers at the Jackson Laboratory in Maine gave mice that were genetically engineered to suffer from glaucoma vitamin B3 supplements in their water.

Amazingly, the scientists found that the young mice did not experience any of the early symptoms of onset.

In fact, the vitamin B3 was so powerful against glaucoma, 93 percent of the young mice getting the highest dose did not develop glaucoma.

Even better, vitamin B3 halted the further development of glaucoma in mice who were already suffering from symptoms of the disease.

Simply put, taking vitamin B3 could be an easy way to prevent and slow down the development of glaucoma.

You can get more vitamin B3 by eating foods like turkey breast, green peas, mushrooms and peanuts. Or you can use a supplement if you’re looking to get a regular dose.

Plus, vitamin B3 supplements are insanely cheap — like less than what’s in your couch cushions cheap.

Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, is available at your local pharmacy or through for around $2 a month.

Live well,
