 Sight: B vitamins help keep vision sharp as we age 
 
by What Doctors Don't Tell You - 3/1/2009
Following on from our news story last week about how fruits and vegetables can help reduce vision loss in older age, a new study has found that vitamins B6 and B12 can also help preserve our eyesight as we get older.

Taking a combination of vitamins B6 and B12 together with folic acid can reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Researchers made the discovery when they gave supplements to a group of 5,442 women aged 40 and older who already had heart disease or three other risk factors for AMD.

Over a seven-year period, the women were given either a placebo, or sugar pill, or the supplements. Those who took the supplements reduced their risk of AMD by 34 per cent, and of ‘visually significant’ AMD by 41 per cent.
