Macular Degeneration is a gradual degeneration of the macula – the portion of the retina that is the focal point of our vision. It is the second most frequent cause of optical impairment in people 65 years and older. Tobacco smoking and cardiovascular conditions such as high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis, environmental toxins as well as exposure to UV lights are linked to deterioration of the macula. There are two types of age related macular degeneration atrophic (dry) and neovascular (wet). Of these - atrophic is the more common one of the two types. + Read more >
In this form of macular degeneration a substance called lipofuscin accumulates in the lining of the retina. Neovascular macular degeneration is much less common and is caused by abnormal growth of blood vessels. Mascular degeneration can be treated successfully if recognized in the early stages of the disease. Zinc, Selenium, Grape seed extract, Vitamin A, C & E and Beta-Carotene and other antioxidants help to protect against free radical damage and ward off or slow down the progression of early atrophic macular degeneration.

Green Lipped FFATM is the stable free fatty acid extract of Perna canaliculus, the New Zealand green-lipped mussel. This extract contains an unique profile of fatty acids not found in significant amounts in standard fish oil supplements. These fatty acids modulate the body's production of eicosanoids, key local cellular "hormones" involved in inflammatory responses, acting through inhibition of 5- and 12-lypoxygenase and other key enzymes. Studies show that these effects make this mixture more effective nutritional support than conventional fish oils.
