There is a direct connection between the eyes and the brain.
When doctors examine the retina and optic nerve they are looking directly at brain cells.
The retina consists of certain plant pigments that are good indicators of visual health.
Two of those pigments are carotenoids called lutein and zeaxanthin.
Supplementation with these carotenoids helps prevent age-related vision loss.1
The diseases of aging such as cancer, pneumonia, and dementia are linked to a malfunctioning immune system.
This degenerative impairment is known as immune senescence. It accelerates aging by causing chronic inflammation while failing to protect against pathogens and malignancies.1-5
Not only do we lose the ability to defend against cancers and infections, but our failing immune cells create a state of hyper-inflammation that destroys neurons, the endothelium, and joints.6,7
B vitamins are critical for the production of neurotransmitters in the brain.
Insufficiency is associated with cognitive decline.1-3
Folate has a number of mechanisms by which it can enhance cognitive performance. These include lowering inflammation and reducing homocysteine.1,4
Elevated homocysteine and chronic inflammation are linked to degenerative brain disorders.

This means that folate plays a role in turning a gene “on” or “off.”

By age 80, more than half of all Americans will have cataracts, or will have undergone surgery to remove them.3
Researchers have been investigating two different but related forms of the nutrient carnosine to help slow the development of cataracts as well as improve visual performance of cataract-affected eyes.
