Beta Carotene Pills Do Not Remedy Age-related Macular Degeneration

Chicago- Beta carotene was thought to remedy eyesight problems, an extension of the advice most of us have grown up with- about carrots// being good for eyesight. A novel research has suggested that beta carotene pills may not be of much use in improving age associated macular degeneration. Age related macular degeneration is common amongst the older generation, which could eventually lead to vision loss.

It might seem like a bolt from the blue, but carrots, rich in beta carotene, or supplements of beta carotene, though proven to rev up eyesight, can do precious little to assist the 65 and above who suffer age related macular degeneration. This disease makes it difficult to read, drive or even recognize faces.

During the study, researchers followed data pertaining to 21,000 male doctors for more than 12 years. Beta carotene pills were advised to 50% of the lot and a placebo to the remaining 50%. The finding revealed that the number of doctors who came down with the eye condition in both groups were the same.

The findings reveal that beta carotene may not be helpful in cases of macular degeneration although positive treatment outcomes might be achieved when combined with vitamins and zinc. But the best bet is to consume atleast five servings of fruits and vegetables on a daily basis, to offset risks of age related macular degeneration.
