Study: Coconut Oil Prevents Macular Degeneration - Healthy for the EyesA recent study published late 2018 confirms an earlier Health Impact News article that macular degeneration, a disease mainstream medicine considers irreversible, can be prevented, attenuated, and even reversed naturally. The natural ingredient this study tested was coconut oil. This study was conducted by Nigeria’s University of Ilorin’s Department of Physiology. The final report, titled "Coconut oil protects against light-induced retina degeneration in male Wistar rats" was published by the journal Pathophysiology.
Study: Coconut Oil Prevents Macular Degeneration - Healthy for the Eyes
I use coconut oil on my eyelids at night before bed (a rather thick layer) so that it can work it's way down into my eyes while I'm sleeping. I have Sjogren's Syndrome and this really helps stop the dry eye which comes with the Sjogren's.
Also, I'm not crazy about eating coconut oil so this is a better alternative for me. I have no idea if it will help with ARMD or not but I sure hope so!
