Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid that occurs in nature with zeaxanthin, a closely related carotenoid. Lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the eyes macula and lens, as well as in the skin, breast and cervical tissues.* Both lutein and zeaxanthin protect the macula from degradation normally associated with aging and oxidative stress.* The macula is responsible for focus and color differentiation. Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in dark green, leafy vegetables. While the average American intake of lutein is only 2 mg per day, other population groups consume up to 20 to25 mg per day.*

Antioxidants and supplementation is a huge faoctr in stabilizing the eyes. My dad has AMD and his doctor at UCLA put him on MAxiVision supplements that he gets from Amazon. His AMD has been stable for a year. He has not gotten any more injections since he stopped smoking and started MaxiVision.
When I began eating raw vegan, I beamce more concerned about what I was also putting on my skin. I now do dry brushing on my skin every day and use Ah Shayh coconut oil from head to toe! No more dryness and the elasticity has improved tremendously. My acupuncturist and massage therapist each commented on how much my skin has improved. I'm sure this is also due to my diet but the coconut oil seems to form a protective barrier so your skin can heal from the inside out. My husband has severe varicose veins due to a broken leg. He has been applying Ah Shayh coconut oil daily and he's seen a huge difference: the skin is more elastic and healthy looking, and he's even growing leg hair back where it had stopped growing due to poor circulation. I use it on the ends of my hair, for minor cuts, and for every day moisturizing. One jar seems to last two people forever! It's one of the most versatile and cost effective products I've ever used. In fact, all of my other moisturizers and lotions have been sitting in my bathroom unused for months! Time to clean house! This product has simplified my life especially when traveling. Instead of multiple bottles it's your skin lotion, lip balm, facial moisturizer, hair conditioner, cuticle cream and anti-bacterial first aid cream all in one.
