Macular Degeneration- The Silent Blinding Disease

Macular Degeneration is an incurable eye disease. Though it is not painful, it is the leading cause of blindness for Americans over 55. Because it doesn’t hurt, you often don’t know you have it until the damage to your eyes has already progressed. This silent, blinding disease, affects more than 10 million Americans.

As our population continues to age, the number of people affected by this silent aggressor is projected to rise. Although there is not a cure, there is hope. It is possible to reduce your chances and to slow the progress of the disease once you know you are infected. That possibility lies

in the natural compounds readily found in green tea, berries, barley, raisins, red wine and rhubarb. These foods are rich with flavonoids.

Visiloc contains these catechin flavonoids as well. It’s one of the few ingredients that come together to improve the circulation in your eyes: reducing your chances of being affected by eye ailments that are common as we age. If you are already struggling with macular degeneration,

Visiloc can slow the symptoms, letting you see your loved ones longer, read your favorite novels more easily and drive your car.  Most specialists agree that taking a supplement with catechins is a good idea.

If you or someone you love struggles with Macular Degeneration, we would love to hear how you deal  with the effects and we deeply hope that Visiloc helps!
