Glaucoma (or ocular hypertension) is a condition marked by an increase in inner eye pressures and subsequent damage to the optic nerve. After cataracts, glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world.
It’s been diagnosed in nearly 2.3 million Americans and the
Lifestyle measures, such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, and smoking cessation,are protective, as is supplemental vitamin C (at least 2,000–3,000 mg daily),which helps lower intraocular pressures.
Mirtogenol for Glaucoma PreventionHowever, my number 1 recommendation is an herbal supplement called Mirtogenol. Studies suggest that this blend of bilberry and pycnogenol normalizes pressures within the eye and reduces the risk of developing glaucoma.
In one study, 20 people with slightly elevated intraocular pressures took 240 mg of Mirtogenol daily. After three months, 19 of them had significant decreases in eye pressures, while only one of 18 in a control group experienced improvements. At the end of the six-month study, the Mirtogenol group also had marked improvements in blood flow in the ocular arteries.
