The Anti-Aging Secret You
Haven’t Heard of…Yet
It’s a tiny compound found in the skin of some
fruits. But it packs quite the punch. This
antioxidant is so powerful that one of America’s
most trusted experts recently declared on
national television, “It’ll help you live longer.”
When stacked up against the world’s top anti-
aging supplement, researchers concluded that
this “new” antioxidant is “more potent” when it
comes to keeping the brain young in animals.
So what is it…how can you benefit…and even
better, how can ramp up its power even more?
That’s what you’ll discover HERE.
The Kitchen Herb That
Protects Your Vision
The key to protecting your eyesight may just be
in your kitchen. Or growing in your garden.
New research has found that a common herb
contains a protective compound. And it could
help prevent age-related macular degeneration
(AMD). AMD is the most common eye problem
among people 50 and older. It is also the leading
cause of blindness.
The compound is carnosic acid. It produces
antioxidant enzymes that lower free radicals
and peroxides, preventing cellular damage. And
a recent study in the Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science shows just how powerful it is
. Researchers tested it on retinal cells in mice
damaged by toxic peroxides. They did this to mimic
AMD. Sure enough, carnosic acid protected the
cells from further damage.
What’s more, it protected against light-induced
retinal damage. The mice pre-treated with
carnosic acid experienced less damage when
exposed to blue light. They developed a thicker
outer nuclear layer in the eye which protected
their photoreceptors – the part of the eye that
detects light. Protecting this part of the eye is
key. Damaged photoreceptors result in AMD.
So then what herb is carnosic acid found in? You probably already use it.

It has nothing to do with useless PSA tests
. It has nothing to do with surgery or radiation
that ruins more lives than it saves.
