Natural Herbs And Vitamins To Cure Cataracts

Cataract formation is connected to the aging process, associated with increased oxidative stress, and a consequence of free radical attacks, and reduced efficiency of metabolic processes. The lens provides an environment where these processes proliferate at a rate faster than that in other parts of the body. The lens consists of multiple layers of cells without the usual cellular organelles for energy production and other regenerative mechanisms for cellular biostability.40 Lens fiber cells dependent upon a small number of lens surface cells and surrounding cells for support. Over time these support mechanisms require increased nourishment and more antioxidants.50

Decrease efficiency in these supportive mechanisms is inevitable in aging, but it is possible to counteract these age-related processes by maintaining a healthy ocular environment with optimally maintained levels of antioxidant and cellular metabolism to ensure optimal lens function.64 Aging and oxidative stress, in particular, affects the entire body. Free radical proliferation can be minimized in the eye through proper diet and lifestyle, positively affecting overall health.

Maintaining a healthy ocular environment begins by avoiding common lifestyle and environmental risks that promote eye disease, cataract development in particular, and by following dietary and nutritional recommendations that support overall eye health.
