A happy sweetamine customer--Elena in Los Angeles—just gave us a testimonial about how sweetamine ended the pain in her hips from doing housework, and also reported about sweetamine’s 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 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."
No wonder sweetamine is helping! It looks like all those common age-related eye diseases aren’t due to aging after all, but really to chronic inflammation, probably due to glycine deficiency, like so many other conditions that make people sick and die these days. Here’s the medline link to the medline abstract: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30298670
