Longevinex & Macular Degeneration
Question: Does Longevinex resveratrol really help for age-related macular degeneration?
Answer: As discussed in the Resveratrol Supplements Review, there have been several reported cases, all from the same doctor, of people with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) experiencing improvement or slowed progression of the disease while taking Longevinex. A laboratory study also suggests that resveratrol itself can inhibit the production of growth factors, the overexpression of which is known to worsen AMD in human retinal cells. However, there do not appear to be any randomized, placebo-controlled studies on the effects of Longevinex in people with AMD, as would be needed to determine its efficacy for AMD. More about this, plus evidence for other uses of resveratrol and our tests of popular products, is found in the Resveratrol Supplements Review >>
