degeneration may actually be harmed by taking zinc and some may benefit from taking zinc. The only way to know whether zinc is good or bad is to have a genetic DNA test for macular degeneration done. If you do not have the DNA test done most nutritional experts agree that you should not take more than 40 mg of zinc daily. Here is the study:

Protecting Your Vision in the Digital Age

Great article on Exposure to blue light from digital screens written by Sean Moloughney that is posted on nutraceuticalsworld.com.

Traditionally an area of focus for people later in life, maintaining healthy eyesight remains a top concern that extends to consumers across the age spectrum. Many experts today are concerned about the long-term health implications of overexposure to blue light from digital devices, especially for younger eyes.

For instance, according to a Harvard Health Publications newsletter, blue wavelengths in moderation are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood. However, they can be especially disruptive at night, shifting circadian rhythms and suppressing melatonin. Overexposure can also lead to eye fatigue.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin: Protection Against Blue Light Damage to Eyes

Dr. Michael Lange has been involved in Blue light research for many years and has developed a supplement called Fortifeye Focus that incorporates the latest in science into this one supplement. Dr. Lange also produces a lens called Blue Light Defense that filters the harmful blue light people come in contact with on a daily basis. The combination of the 2 new technologies Fortifeye Focus and Blue Light Defense lenses offers the highest protection from the potentially harmful blue light that is available today. Dr. Michael Lange is a huge advocate of filtering this harmful blue light at all ages and states this is one more large step into the realm of preventative medicine and anti aging. Here is a new article discussing the benefits of lutein and zeaxanthin isomers and blue light.

Macular carotenoid supplementation improves disability glare performance and dynamics of photostress recovery

Abstract

Background: The so-called macular carotenoids (MC) lutein (L), zeaxanthin (Z), and meso-zeaxanthin (MZ) comprise the diet-derived macular pigment (MP). The purpose of this study was to determine effects of MC supplementation on the optical density of MP (MPOD), repeated-exposure photostress recovery (PSR), and disability glare (DG) thresholds.

Methods: This was a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Fifty-nine young (mean age = 21.7), healthy volunteers participated in this study. Subjects supplemented their daily diet with either 10 mg L + 2 mg total Z (1 mg Z + 1 mg MZ; n = 24), 20 mg L + 4 mg total Z (2 mg Z + 2 mg MZ; n = 25), or placebo (n = 10) for 12 months. The primary outcome was a composite measure of visual performance in glare, defined by change in DG and PSR. Secondary outcomes included MPOD and visual fatigue. The primary endpoint for outcomes was 12 months. MPOD was assessed with customized heterochromatic flicker photometry. PSR times for an 8 cycle /degree, 15 % contrast Gabor patch target were determined after each of five successive exposures to intense LED lights. DG threshold was defined as the intensity of a ring of lights through which subjects were able to maintain visibility of the aforementioned target. Measures of all parameters were conducted at baseline, 6 months, and 12 months. Repeated-measures ANOVA, and Pearson product-moment correlations were used to determine statistically significant correlations, and changes within and between groups.

Results: MPOD for subjects in both supplementation groups increased significantly versus placebo at both 6- and 12-month visits (p < 0.001 for all). Additionally, PSR times and DG thresholds improved significantly from baseline compared to placebo at 6- and 12-month visits (p < 0.001 for all). At baseline, MPOD was significantly related to both DG thresholds (r = 0.444; p = 0.0021) and PSR times (r = -0.56; p < 0.001). As a function of MPOD, the repeated-exposure PSR curves became more asymptotic, as opposed to linear. The change in subjects’ DG thresholds were significantly related to changes in PSR times across the study period (r = -0.534; p < 0.001). Conclusions: Increases in MPOD lead to significant improvements in PSR times and DG thresholds. The asymptotic shape of the repeated-exposure PSR curves suggests that increases in MPOD produce more consistent steady-state visual performance in bright light conditions. The mechanism for this effect may involve both the optical filtering and biochemical (antioxidant) properties of MP.

Trial registration: ISRCTN trial registration number: ISRCTN54990825. Data reported in this manuscript represent secondary outcome measures from the registered trial.

New Fodmap Friendly All Organic Blue Green Superfood Powder Developed by Dr. Michael Lange Soon to be added to the Fortifeye Family!

Blue Green

 

Dr Michael Lange has been taking care of a wide range of patients through out  Florida since 1993, changing people’s lives through proper nutrition. Throughout his profession, Dr. Lange has seen first hand how poor diet can have a negative impact on his patients.  He has been involved in nutritional research to support ocular and overall health. Progressively, more and more individuals are being negatively impacted by their poor diets and lifestyles.  Sadly this is becoming more and more main stream at younger and younger ages. This comes from the body not being fueled with the beneficial nutrients the body needs to flourish. The diet of a typical person in this day and age consists of over processed, calorie dense, nutrient deficient, fast food filled with pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. To all of his patients, radio listeners, family, and friends, Dr. Lange recommends an all organic gluten-free paleo type diet. However, even with this type of diet , one may still notice tenderness and bloating  in the abdomen, belching, and even gas after eating. Many people experience Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which can be aggravated by certain fruits and vegetables. Dr. Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins decided to research and develop a powdered super food using all organic and non GMO fruits and vegetables that would be ideal for anyone on a low carb diet, diabetics, even people experiencing IBS or other functional gastrointestinal disorders.

imagesCA30T09C

The new Fortifeye  Blue Green Superfood is an all organic, Non GMO, delicious powder  combining fruits and vegetables that are both Paleo and FODMAP friendly. Every ingredient, down to the flavor system, was taken into consideration in the development of this product. All nutrients found in the Fortifeye Blue Green Superfood are sourced from the United States. Many Super Food related products use inexpensive binders, bulking agents, and fillers such as flax, psyllium, acacia, oat bran, etc. which leads the consumer to believe they are getting a healthy fiber and more bang for their buck in each scoop. However, this is not the case. In reality, both soluble and insoluble fibers may block the absorption of the nutrients from the overall product. You will NOT find any of these fiber fillers in our Blue Green Superfood powder. Ingredients will include but not be limited to: Spirulina, Kale, Spinach, Barley Grass Juice, wheat grass juice, Parsley, Cucumbers, Peppermint Leaf, Blue Berries, Strawberries, Cranberries, and Cinnamon.

Fortifeye  Blue Green Superfood is expected to retail MSRP at $35 a container and will be available in  Berry flavor with Chocolate flavor to follow. You can get this product first ONLY here at Fortifeye.com. Stay tuned for more progress and release date on the product!

Whey Protein Concentrate from grass fed New Zealand A2 cows great for anti aging.

Whey Protein Concentrate from grass fed New Zealand A2 cows great for anti aging.

Most dairy cows are raised in a confined area and are fed genetically modified grains in feed lots that are enhanced with hormones and antibiotics to increase milk production. Fortifeye Super Protein is derived from New Zealand A2 dairy cows that are grass fed free range year round. This protein is free from pesticide, hormones and antibiotics.   Grass fed A2 cows produce the highest quality milk that our whey protein concentrate comes from. There is more and more science proving that A2 cows are a better source of milk than A1 cows. Go to this link to learn the latest on A2 New Zealand cows http://thea2milkcompany.com/about-us/about-our-milk/

Dr. Michael Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins researched the best possible dairy cows to use when developing Fortifeye Super Protein. The conclusion was to use year round grass fed New Zealand dairy cows. Fortifeye Super Protein is a non denatured whey protein concentrate from grass-fed New Zealand A2 cows. This protein has an all organic natural flavor system that makes both the chocolate and the vanilla delicious and it readily mixes with any liquid.

A non denatured or undenatured whey protein concentrate from grass-fed New Zealand cows is significantly different from most traditional non pasture raised or partial pastured whey protein concentrates . Grass fed cows will typically have 60% or higher omega 3 content in their milk versus non grass-fed cows milk. This is crucial since the typical diet is pro inflammatory and is already too high in omega 6 . Drinking a milk protein that is higher in omega 3 will help the body to fight off inflammation and promote wellness.   Consuming a whey protein concentrate that has a higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 is a step in the right direction of anti aging .

Grass fed pasture raised cows are much higher in a very important fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA has some enormous positive health benefits and immune system stimulating properties. Studies indicate that CLA may be beneficial to heart health and have some anti cancer and anti diabetic benefits as well. Grass fed pasture raised cows have up to 500% more CLA than non grass-fed cows. New research proving CLA is great for the heart and other potential diseases http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/05/28/us-milk-grass-fed-cows-idUSTRE64R5GY20100528#xXmSZgGYkTIb2DqV.97

A bioactive non denatured whey protein concentrate like Fortifeye Super Protein is the best way to stimulate the master antioxidant and detoxifier in the body called Glutathione. Non denatured means the protein has not been heated or altered . The key amino acid cysteine combines with glutamic acid and glycine to make glutathione.   Glutathione levels continuously decline as we age. Glutathione deficiencies are linked to many illnesses and diseases. Replenishing glutathione levels by consuming a whey protein concentrate is recommended by anti aging doctors all over the world. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mark-hyman/glutathione-the-mother-of_b_530494.html

Lactoferrin is another key immune boosting component of whey protein. Lactoferrin is a SuperProteinVani picglobular glycoprotein that has many potential health benefits. New research indicates that lactoferrin may have antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and possibly anti carcinogenic effects. Relatively new research indicates people with dry eyes may have lower than normal levels of lactoferrin in their tears. Dry eye treatment with lactoferrin? The future of natural dry eye treatment may involve supplementing with a good grass fed whey protein concentrate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactoferrin

Whey Protein is the fastest most bioactive form of protein known to man. Whey protein has the highest biological value (BV) of all food grade proteins at a BV of 104. Whey Protein is high in a specific amino acid called leucine . Leucine is the “Mack Daddy ” amino acid for stimulating muscle synthesis. Whey protein is far superior to casein, soy or any other protein for muscle synthesis. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24015719

You can clearly see that the addition of a good non denatured grass fed whey protein concentrate may be beneficial to your overall health and help to promote a healthy immune system. Fortifeye Super protein combined with organic fruits and vegies in a smoothie is a great way to start the am.

If you are trying to maximize each of your workouts then a pre workout drink using Fortifeye Super Protein blended with coconut milk or almond milk, blue berries and a banana.

Post recovery workout drink with in 30 minutes of training would benefit from a scoop of Fortifeye Super Protein, a wedge of watermelon blended with organic chocolate milk. https://strengthtrainingandconditioning.wordpress.com/2013/01/07/the-ultimate-post-recovery-protein-drink-by-dr-michael-lange/

 

Dr Michael Lange develops new non denatured whey protein concentrate.

Dr LangeDr Michael Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins have developed a new whey protein concentrate (WPC) called Fortifeye Super Protein.  Dr Michael Lange has been involved in numerous nutritional studies using the latest in dietary changes and supplementation for age related macular degeneration.  He noticed that one of the biggest nutritional deficiencies in his patients when doing intracellular blood tests was Glutathione.

Glutathione is the “master antioxidant ” in the body responsible for many biological processes in life.  One of the best ways to stimulate glutathione is by consuming a good non denatured or undenatured whey protein concentrate.  Dr Lange of course wanted the best quality highest bio available protein .  Fortifeye Super Protein is a non denatured whey protein concentrate from grass fed New Zealand Pasture raised A2 cows.  These free range cows graze year round on grass free from gmos and pesticide.  The protein has not been denatured with high heat or acid and is free of gluten, wheat, soy, corn , pesticides, antibiotics and hormones.

Fortifeye Super Protein can be used as a pre workout and post workout smoothie to help gain muscle mass and loose body fat.  When blended together with  specific fruits and vegetables Fortifeye Super Protein can be used as a meal replacement.

Vitamin D and its role in macular degeneration

Posted on Fri, Sep 04, 2015 @ 10:26 AM

Vitamin D has been extensively researched for its benefits in bone health, cancer, inflammation, and the immune system. A new study published in JAMA Ophthalmology last week found that Vitamin D may be a critical player in eye health in the prevention of age-related macular degeneration, specifically among women who are genetically susceptible. This may have to do with its role in inflammation, which is believed to be involved in the development of macular degeneration.

Macular degeneration is characterized by the deterioration of the macula, which is a small part of the retina where the eye’s photoreceptors are most concentrated. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss, more than cataracts and glaucoma combined.

In this study, the research team found that women who have a vitamin D deficiency and a specific high-risk genotype are 6.7 times more likely to develop age-related macular degeneration than women with sufficient vitamin D levels and no high risk genotype. Continue reading

Dr Michael Lange discusses Proper Digestion for good ocular health and overall health

Proper digestion is crucial for good ocular health as well as overall health discussed by Dr Michael Lange

When the food you consume on a daily basis is not digested well then the absorption of the nutrients is limited.  As we age our digestion can stop working at its peak level and then our overall health can suffer.  Many things can interfere with the natural digestive enzymes and natural bacteria in our digestive system and this can result in all sorts of conditions. Diet is often times the culprit for digestive issues. Todays diets are caloric dense and nutrient deficient. These foods are overly  processed, genetically modified , filled with pesticide, antibiotics, hormones, nitrites , nitrates, sugar, dyes, artificial sweeteners and preservatives. All of this can cause enormous stress on the digestive system.  Millions of people are plagued daily with food allergies, constipation, diarrhea, gas, acid reflux, heart burn, bloating, cramping and low energy .  All of these can be related to poor digestion.

Foresee Home AMD Monitoring Program

TransmissionDr. Lange is excited to announce that Lange Eye Care and Associates is using a new at home monitoring device developed for macular degeneration patients called Foresee Home AMD Monitoring Program. Lange Eye Care and Associates is one of the first eye care centers in the country to utilize this technology, the first FDA cleared home telemonitoring system for macular degeneration patients. ForeseeHome allows patients to take a proactive role in preserving their vision at home. This advanced technology allows for the detection of early macular changes before the patients is aware. The device transmits the results of the test daily to a monitoring center via a cellular modem or phone line. This device has been clinically proven to be extremely sensitive at picking up the earliest change from dry macular degeneration to the more visually devastating form called wet macular degeneration. The data center then alerts the doctors office of the potential changes in the patients retina and allows for much earlier intervention by the retina specialist to lessen the potential damage!
