ABOUT GLUTATHIONE AND MACULAR DEGENERATION



Macular degeneration is a common eye disease in the elderly. It causes deterioration of the macula, the central area of the retina, the paper-thin tissue at the back of the eye. This is where light-sensitive cells send visual signals to the brain. The exact cause of macular degeneration is unknown. There are contributing risk factors that include age, obesity, high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. As the leading cause of blindness affecting individuals later in life, it is manifested through a gradual loss of vision. The sooner macular degeneration is diagnosed, the sooner you can be helped with low vision aids and/or laser therapy.


The elderly are predisposed to oxidative damage because they generally have low Glutathione levels. Research seems to indicate that high Glutathione levels correspond to healthy eyes and suggests a possible role for Glutathione in the fight against or delay of this disease.
