One Diet Change STOPS Vision Loss

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Let’s face it — nothing’s more debilitating than losing your eyesight.

Poor vision could cost you your ability to drive… and even your independence.

And the mainstream only offers you little help. Just thicker glasses or terrifying laser surgery that could leave you blind.

But now Tufts University researchers say that there’s an all-natural way to stop vision loss that doesn’t require any coke bottle glasses or dangerous surgeries.

And believe it or not, it’s as easy as switching up your diet.

It’s no secret that the foods we eat greatly affect our bodies.

And your eyes are no different.

Previous studies have shown that certain nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin can help protect eyes.

More recently, researchers investigated the effects of the low-glycemic diet on age-related macular degeneration (AMD) — one of main causes of vision loss in older folks.

Low glycemic diets focus on foods that don’t cause blood sugar spikes. Since blood sugar can affect your eyesight, researchers were curious to see if the diet could help with vision loss.

For the study, researchers split a group of older mice into two different groups. One group ate a low glycemic diet and the other ate a high-glycemic diet.

At the end of the trial, the mice eating the high-glycemic diet developed many aspects of AMD, including retinal damage.

But here’s the good news…

Mice eating the low-glycemic diet showed ZERO signs of AMD.

This means by simply making a few dietary changes, you may be able to STOP vision loss and keep your eagle eyes well into your golden years.

Low-glycemic diets work by swapping high-glycemic foods like white bread for low-glycemic foods like whole grains.

Live well,
