As one who has suffered from some very severe bouts of Optic neuritis; I will offer this:
I started Lutein six months ago, and never had another bout of it, until yesterday! Yes, my eye doc had told me it couldn't possibly be helping me, too.
On Wednesday, when I took my first dose of Azithromycin, I had forgotten to take my Lutein. The next day, yesterday, I woke up with Optic neuritis symptoms that just kept getting worse. That is, until I remembered to take my Lutein supplement. Within an hour I noticed definite improvement. I could start to keep the eye on my right side open, again. But, it was still there.
I doubled the dose, and it got even better. But, then I lay down for a nap. When I awoke, it started to get a little worse. But, then I took two more and by the time I went to bed, last night, it was all but gone!
I don't have it, today, at all. Good thing, too, as I'm due for my second weekly dose of the Zith. Am definitely doubling up on the Lutein supplements, too! No way am I about to stop this supplement.
Yes, I know it supposedly shouldn't be working for Optic neuritis. Yet it sure seems to be, for me. Have also read similar anecdotes written by others, who swear by it, as well.
Gary has lots of eye trouble. Tell me more about the supplements for the eyes John takes. Gary drinks barley green, small amount, at night to help with spasticiy and resting. Really great if he has to go on steroid treatments. L-Carnatine seem to do him a little good for energy, but he isn't bothered by fatigue too much.
And, I suppose I should also mention that the supplement also contains Zeaxanthin, too.
Miyashita and colleagues also found that fucoxanthin has 'strong' anti-diabetes effects by promoting the synthesis of DHA in the liver.
