Medical Study Establishes First-Ever Long-Term Benefits for Macular Degeneration Sufferers Using Macular Health Vitamin Supplement

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala., June 23 /CNW/ -- According to the World Health
Organization (WHO), age-related macular degeneration (AMD) ranks third as a
cause of visual impairment. It is the primary cause of visual impairment in
industrial countries with a blindness prevalence of 8.7 percent.  A new
medical study indicates, however, that with the use of the Macular Health
vitamin supplement there is a way to preserve the vision of millions of aging
adults suffering from AMD.

    The second phase of the Multifocal Electroretinogram (MERG) study,
conducted at the UAB Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama,
recently revealed that patients suffering from AMD experienced long-term
benefits from taking Macular Health, a special combination of supplemental
vitamins, minerals and carotenoids.  Phase I of the MERG study, completed in
2005, confirmed an average of 16 percent improvement in vision after taking
Macular Health for only 12 weeks.  Phase II, completed recently, measured the
vision function of the same patients two years later and found an average
improvement in vision of 17 percent.

    Complete MERG findings are available online at
