How do you know you need glasses ?


Well you don’t!.  You might think it is obvious, but deteriorating eyesight tends to creep up on you.  Sight loss tends to be gradual and it only becomes apparent when you compare with someone else’s superior ability to see a small object at a distance or you find you are holding small print further away or you seek better light to read small print.

Natural Sunglasses help prevent Blindness

What might natural sunglasses look like ?

Leutin is a naturally occurring organic pigment which helps absorb damaging blue and UV light.  It occurs primarily in fruits and vegetables and helps protect the plant from damaging sunlight.

When we ingest Leutin it  concentrates in the area in the centre of the retina called the macula.  Lutein protects the macula by filtering out potentially damaging forms of light and therefore has been christened our “natural sun-glasses” due to its ability to protect the eyes against radiation damage by acting as an optic filter and an antioxidant.

Corn, egg yolks, spinach, kale, romaine lettuce, peas, leeks and greens all contain high concentrations of Lutein.  However you may not be getting sufficient Leutin as there are many other factors which cause AMD (age related macular degeneration) and you could be at risk.

Why not reduce that risk by taking Leutin Supplements such as Macushield
