Chinese Fruit May Help Vision Problems Caused By DiabetesBy Mark Vavoulis • Jan 19th, 2011 • Category: Blood Sugar, True Health News, Vision
A Kansas State University researcher says that Chinese wolfberries can lower the oxidative stress that the eye undergoes as a result of type-2 diabetes.
"I would not say that wolfberries are a medicine, but they can be used as a dietary supplement to traditional treatments to improve vision," said researcher Dingbo "Daniel" Lin. "Wolfberries have high antioxidant activity and are very beneficial to protect against oxidative stress caused by environmental stimuli and genetic mutations."
By using type-2 diabetic mice, Lin and his team are studying the effects of wolfberries on oxidative stress, one of the factors that occurs in diabetic retinopathy, which is a common complication of diabetes and the leading cause of blindness in American adults.
They have found that wolfberries have high levels of zeaxanthin, lutein, polysaccharides and polyphenolics, which have been shown to improve vision, including the prevention of age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
Wolfberries, also known as goji berries, are bright orange-red, oblong-shaped and grown in China. They are known to help rebalance homeostasis, boost the immune system, nourish the liver and kidneys and improve vision.
Lin said wolfberries may be used as a dietary supplement. Consumers might find them in Chinese food stores or on the internet.
