Taking a multivitamin every day could prevent vision loss: Study

Most people take their eyesight for granted until something is undeniably wrong with it.

Recent study shows that while people don’t really have time in their fast lives to take lengthy precautions to prevent eye sight loss, taking a multi vitamin supplement once a day can help make a difference.

As you age you face vision problems as a result of macular degeneration, and this can negatively affect your quality of life.

Macular degeneration affects the retina and causes you to lose your central vision. Your peripheral vision might be normal, but you eventually lose the ability to see fine details.

A team of researchers recently carried out a study to assess whether vitamins and minerals can slow the progression of the disease in those who have it.

Data taken from 19 different studies in the U.S., Europe, China and Australia showed mixed results but a study within a large group with a six year follow up indicated that a perfect combination of Vitamin E, Zinc and Vitamin C can make all the difference.

Nutritional supplements can help in lowering the progress of the macular degeneration disease that causes vision loss.

The combination that they found to be effective was made up of 500 milligrams of vitamin C, 400 international units of vitamin E, 80 milligrams of zinc, 10 milligrams of lutein, 2 milligrams of copper, and 2 milligrams of zeaxanthin.
