Age-related macular degeneration

Researchers have suggested one can slow aging with zinc and antioxidants as they delay the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and vision loss, possibly by preventing cellular damage in the retina. In a population-based cohort study in the Netherlands, high dietary intake of zinc as well as beta carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E was associated with reduced risk of AMD in elderly subjects. However, the authors of a systematic review and meta-analysis published in 2007 concluded that zinc is not effective for the primary prevention of early AMD, although zinc might reduce the risk of progression to advanced AMD.

It is my belief, and the belief of many authorities in this field that delaying the aging process is possible. Every little bit helps so you too can slow aging with zinc and antioxidants among other tips you can find throughout this site.
