So the first step I generally take as my starting point with exploring a topic is to look at the scientific literature. Now I am not saying all studies are perfect [as evidenced by the potential bias introduced through suppression of data [e.g. GSK diabetes drug Avandia].
Alright enough of that crap jargon..
So my journey this week takes me to eyes and SKIN and what to do about increasing some of the loss of elasticity that I am starting to see as a result of weight loss..
Try as I might to give you all a PSA on getting rid of that double chin, I will now share something else that I have recently come across to improve your skin (and eyesight).. Remember this is still an issue for me as well since having received that wonderful news that I can now be known as "cataracts girl". [please wear your sunglasses if you have light colored eyes].
So here is a blurb about the literature..but the bottom line is that research shows that dietary supplement of lutein may help your eyes and SKIN... here is the scientific stuff...
If you do choose to explore supplements, please make sure you do your research and buy quality products .. this is not a regulated industry.. so buying from a quality manufacturer is important.
If interested in best manufacturers of high quality lutein.. see here.
Obviously I have no financial interest in any of these products .. just interested in the health benefits and sharing the information with you.
Also I need to say that FDA has not evaluated any of the statements made by products indicated in the link, and that these products have not been approved to diagnose, treat or cure any diseases. (also know that FDA does not review or approve any nutraceuticals... so vitamins are not within their scope of authority). The minute a manufacturer says their product treats or cures diseases, it falls within FDA authority as a drug product.
