Eyes on sweetamine, Literally!

Pub MedWe recently got a testimonial from Elena, who found sweetamine ended the pain in her hips from doing housework, and also reported about sweetamine helping with her sister’s retinitis pigmentosa (RP), a genetically inherited, progressive degenerative eye disease: 

“Since birth, she has had the eye disease retinitis pigmentosa. With this condition, she uses magnifying eyeglasses to address her bad vision which is just 2% of what normal vision is. After a couple of weeks of having sweetamine in her diet, here eyeglass strength went from 3.0x to 1.75x!” 

So I wondered if anyone had linked this eye condition to inflammation and did a medline search. Well it turns out that just last month, a European research team, headed by Dr Josianne ten Berge and colleagues of Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, published a study that linked inflammation not only to RP, but also to "age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataract." Their principal conclusion: "Increased levels of inflammatory cytokines in intraocular fluid of patients with originally noninflammatory ocular diseases show that intraocular inflammation is involved in their pathogenesis of these entities."

Considering this new research linking inflammation to all these common age-related eye diseases, it makes perfect sense that sweetamine is helping. Like so many other conditions that make people sick and die these days, deteriorating eye health with age is likely due to at least in part to glycine deficiency, which sweetamine corrects. 

Here's the link to the ten Berge abstract on medline:
