Resveratrol could cure blindness
by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The cure for age-related macular degeneration and blindness could be as simple as taking a natural supplement extract derived from common grape skins. A recent review that the medical establishment refuses to publish has revealed that a unique and proprietary nutraceutical extract containing resveratrol could hold the key to literally curing age-related blindness, as hundreds of patients with macular degeneration have already experienced substantial and even full healing in recent months as a result of taking it.
The formula is officially known as Longevinex, and patients everywhere with macular degeneration are scrambling to give it a try following the recent release of news reports highlighting what appears to be the supplement's miraculous ability to reverse and heal blindness. One Las Vegas woman says she regained her eyesight in just five days as a result of taking Longevinex, according to 8 News Now, and many others have experienced similar results in a relatively short period of time taking the supplement.
"It's anti-inflammatory, it's an anti-depressant, it's anti-virus, anti-fungal and antibacterial in one pill. How many drugs would this molecule replace?" asks Bill Sardi, owner of Resveratrol Partners, LLC, the company that produces Longevinex. Sardi admits he is enthused about his product's ability to offer real results for patients in need, but laments the fact that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) continue to muzzle him and other supplement manufacturers from telling their customers and the public about how these types of products can improve health without causing harmful side effects.
"We can't say that vitamin C cures scurvy. We can't say vitamin D cures rickets. The FDA has a muzzle over what's obvious," he added.
Longevinex provides healing for 16 out of 17 patients at VA hospitalSo how well does Longevinex actually perform in a clinical setting? According to Dr. Stuart Richer, a physician who treats aging military veterans at a Veteran's Affairs hospital in Chicago, the natural product has been successful in treating and reversing vision loss in more than 94 percent of his patients who have tried it. But because his hospital is reluctant to support the product, and the current regulatory climate still hostile to natural healing treatments, Dr. Richer typically has to recommend Longevinex to his patients outside the typical prescription process.
"We found unexpected improvement of the vision, short-term improvement that was sometimes dramatic," explained Dr. Richer to the media about the demonstrable benefits of resveratrol. "The majority of the time, two-thirds, we see an improvement of the vision function. Sometimes we see dramatic restoration of the architecture of the retina."
Dr. Richer conducted his own review on the successes of Longevinex, and he has tried on numerous occasions to get it published. But according to reports, he has thus far been unable to find a medical journal willing to print it.
