Preventing Macular Degeneration through Supplements

by Alan McClain, Macular Degeneration Expert
May 03, 2018

Question: Do supplements help in preventing macular degeneration?

Answer: Yes, a daily B-complex vitamin should be taken with breakfast, particularly one also including 20 mg of lutein and 2 - 4 mg of zeaxanthin.  Other helpful supplements, which also promote best health for everyone, include 15 - 20 mg of zinc, 60 mg of bilberry, 200 mg of Co-Q10, 2000 mg of Vitamin D daily (with protein in a meal), and 400 mg of magnesium with dinner (preferably as zinc malate), along with 3 - 20 mg of melatonin for promoting sleep and preventing or possibly even reversing macular degeneration.  For detailed lists, see my book, How I Beat Macular Degeneration in the Early Stages and How You Can, Too! pages 53 -55, page 89, and pages 107 - 110.
