Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease common to people with diabetes. It is characterized by a change in the blood vessels of the retina caused by high levels of sugar in the blood.. In some cases, the vessels swell and leak fluid or even close off completely. This causes visual disturbance and at times partial blindness. In other cases, abnormal new blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina. Diabetic retinopathy can cause blindness in adults. The good news is that, Diabetic retinopathy is preventable.
To control Diabetic retinopathy, it is important to control the constant infusion of sugar into the lens of the eye. Diabetes must be controlled. Supplementing the eyes with lutein would also help the eyes fight damage.
Recent researches has found L-Carnosine to be effective in controlling diabetes, thus stop the rushing of sugar into the blood vessels of the retina and therefore prevent diabetic retinopathy. L-Carnosine is a natural compound found in most living beings. As we get older, the amount of carnosine in our cells decreases. This is believed to be a major contributor to the aging process. When taken it can fight degenerative disease and rejuvenates cells. Along with that it can help eliminate free radicals and improve time for wound healing. L-Carnosine is a SuperAntiOxidant that quenches even the most destructive free radicals: the hydroxyl and peroxyl radicals, superoxide, and singlet oxygen. Carnosine helps to chelate ionic metals (flush toxins from the body).
L-Carnosine is a natural body product consisting of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine chemically bound to each other. Nerve cells (neurons) and muscle cells (myocytes) contain high levels of Carnosine. Carnosine is NOT a drug, vitamin or mineral and it does not react with any drugs. You are born with high levels of Carnosine in your body but unfortunately it decreases with age. The good news is that you can now replace Carnosine naturally with a daily supplementation of Ethos Endymion which is the very purest form of L-Carnosine available anywhere.
Eye drops containing N-acetyl-Carnosine or NAC have also been shown to help restore health and clear sight of the eyes. Bright Eyes Drops NAC eye drops, as featured in UK television, has been shown to contain N-acetyl-Carnosine or NAC. When applying the NAC drops to the eyes, it is adding it back to the body. Cellular senescence or biological aging is slowed and even reversed. The cloudiness on the lens is literally dissolved naturally and so is blurred vision. Bright Eyes Drops were first introduced to Europe by the world-leading biochemist Professor Steven Charles Gallant who had studied the many different effects and benefits of L-Carnosine ever since he first graduated. His colleague, Professor Alexander Boldyrev in Moscow, had first discovered the positive effects that N-Acetyl-Carnosine and NAC eye drops had on dissolving cataracts in 1988. Manufacturer of Bright Eyes Drops also claim that it protects the eye from light and further free-radical damage and that it is 100% hypoallergenic.
