GlaucoCetin is a medical food designed to support and protect the mitochondrial function of optic nerve cells in patients with Glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness, with approximately ten percent of patients experiencing total vision loss as a result of the degenerative disease. New thinking suggests that the final pathway of glaucoma, loss of optic nerve cells, is actually a neuro-degenerative disease. Novel treatments focus on protecting these important nerve cells to preserve vision.
A number of nutritional foods and compounds have been shown to be protective of the mitochondria and the associated nerve cells. These compounds are known as “neuroprotection.” These highly active neuroprotective compounds have been combined into the proprietary GlaucoCetin formulation, which is specifically designed to protect cells from damage and death.
Mitochondria exists in every cell of the body. Mitochondria generates energy to support cellular function. Nerve cells, like the optic nerve cells which parish in glaucoma patients, have very high energy requirements. These cells have long tentacles that process the signals created by the rods and cones in the eye, and then transmits these signals to the brain. These tentacles are filled with mitochondria. When the mitochondria loses its energy producing capability, the tentacles can no longer function to capture visual signals and patients lose vision.
WHAT IS GLAUCOCETIN MEDICAL FOOD?
GlaucoCetin is designed to support and protect the mitochondrial function of optic nerve cells. GlaucoCetin combines a unique set of ingredients, specifically designed to support, and prevent the underlying cause of optic nerve loss. The metabolism for the optic nerve cells start to fail because of dysfunctional mitochondria. Mitochondria are responsible for energy production in these cells.
When mitochondria are unable to function, the nerve cells do not have enough energy to operate, and they eventually die, which may lead to less-than-optimal vision.
GlaucoCetin is the first medical food designed to enhance the underlying metabolism of optic nerve cells in glaucoma patients by correcting mitochondrial dysfunction. This proprietary blend of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and blood flow enhancing compounds help to block the mitochondrial dysfunction and bring needed nutrients and circulation to damaged cells.
The GlaucoCetin formula has been under development for a decade and is based on years of research showing the importance of natural ingredients for protecting nerve cells. GlaucoCetin focuses on protecting these important nerve cells and has been used successfully.
