Glutathione is crucial for good ocular health as well as overall health.

7 Feb

Dr Michael Lange discusses the importance of maintaining Glutathione levels for good eye and overall health.

Glutathione is the “master antioxidant” found in every cell in our body.  Glutathione  levels have a direct impact on our overall health and eye health.  Glutathione is synthesized in the body from 3  amino acids : cysteine, glutamine and glycine.  The specific form of cysteine is a key limiting component of glutathione production since it is relatively rare in the correct form in the  typical American diet. When glutathione levels are deficient the body can not protect the cells against free radical damage and disease.  Rapid aging, compromised immune system and chronic illness is  a direct result of low levels of glutathione.  Research indicates that close to 100 diseases may be related to a deficiency in this Master Antioxidant .  New science also indicates that decreased levels of glutathione may increase the risk for dry eye, glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.  Glutathione was one of the most common deficiencies found in spectracell intracellular blood analysis  done on patients that had both macular degeneration and dry eyes at The Lange Eye institute .

Glutathione levels drop as we age increasing our risk of compromised immune system and chronic illness.  These levels are highest when we are young and healthy and lowest when we are old and sickly.   Toxins in our environment, food and water we consume daily also negatively impact these levels. Glutathione is the bodies natural detoxifier that is crucial for promoting healthy DNA and mitochondrial functioning.  ATP and energy production  are directly influenced by glutathione levels.

Some symptoms of low  Glutathione levels are : lack of energy, tired, depression, joint pain, dry eyes, dry skin, poor sleep, dizzy spells, brain fog, weakness, skin rashes and frequently sick.

So you can see that maintaining optimal levels of Glutathione is essential for over all wellness and well-being of the entire body and eyes.  If these levels are low then we have a compromised immune system and chronic disease can flourish.  All health care providers should address this potential problem through properly educating the patient on life style modifications and dietary changes however realistically many will not follow these recommendations and fall back into their toxic lifestyles.

I have found one of the best ways to stimulate Glutathione levels is by consuming a non denatured (cold processed) whey protein concentrate from grass-fed cows 1-2 times a day.  This type of whey protein contains the Tri peptide of amino acids necessary for production of the master antioxidant.  The correct form of cysteine (not cystine)  along with glutamine and glycine is necessary for this conversion.  It is important to use a concentrate not an isolate, the whey concentrate has higher levels of immune building cofactors and is less processed than the isolate.  The cows need to be grass-fed all year round not partially fed grass and grains.  The cow’s milk must be free of pesticide, hormones and antibiotics .  I have also been impressed with whey protein concentrate derived from the milk of New Zealand A2 cows.  A2 cows are cows that are relatively difficult to find and have not gone through any genetic mutations over the last few 1000 years, each cows DNA is checked to make sure they are an A2 cow.  It is very difficult to find a non denatured whey protein concentrate from New Zealand grass-fed A2 cows for a reasonable price with 20 grams of protein.  This is why I decided to develop Fortifeye Super Protein.  Fortifeye Super protein is non gmo, non denatured, cold filtered, gluten-free, soy free, sugar-free, low carb, corn free and free of pesticide, hormones and antibiotics.  If you want kick-start your immune system and give the fuel  your body needs to promote wellness then consider Fortifeye Super Protein.  you can learn more about this bio active whey protein here  www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com

NEW FODMAP FRIENDLY ORGANIC BLUE GREEN SUPERFOOD DEVELOPED BY DR MICHAEL LANGE AND FORTIFEYE VITAMINS

Fortifeye Organic Blue Green Superfood

Dr Michael Lange has been taking care of patients since March 1993 and  has seen how poor diet has negative impact on his patients.  He has been involved in nutritional research to support ocular and overall health.   More and more people are plagued with digestive problems and are not fueling their bodies with the beneficial nutrients to promote overall wellness. The typical person today is eating overly processed, calorie dense, nutrient deficient , fast food filled with pesticides, hormones and antibiotics.  Dr. Lange recommends an all organic gluten-free paleo type of diet to his patients, family, friends and radio listeners. However even on this particular type of diet many people will still notice significant bloating, tenderness in the abdomen, belching and gas after eating this type of diet. Many of these people have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and specific fruits  and vegetables  can cause these symptoms as they go thru the digestive system.   Dr. Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins decided to research and develop a powdered super food using all organic and non gmo fruits  and vegetables that people could consume that were on a low carb diet, diabetics and people with IBS. People with IBS will react poorly to certain fruits and vegetables that actually cause fermentation and gas in their digestive system.  These type of foods are called FODMAP which stands for Fermentable oligosaccharides, di-saccharides, mono-saccharides and polyols.  These are very common foods in the typical American diet and new research indicates that restricting these foods may benefit irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)  and other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID).

Fortifeye Organic Blue Green Super food  is  an all organic, gluten-free, non gmo powdered combination of specific fruits and vegetables that are both Paleo and FODMAP friendly.  Everything including the flavor system was taken into consideration in the development of this powder that can be mixed with water or beverage of choice.  All nutrients are sourced from America and it will be available in chocolate and berry flavors.  Many greens drinks will use inexpensive binders, bulking agents and fillers such as flax, psyllium, acacia, oat bran etc  to make the customer think they are getting healthy fiber and  more product per scoop when in reality both soluble and insoluble fibers may block the absorption of valuable nutrients.   Fortifeye Vitamins uses none of these fiber fillers in their new Organic Blue Green Superfood.  Many of the greens drinks on the market will also use 30-40 different nutrients with only small window dressing amounts of each nutrient or will use a “proprietary blend” so u don’t  know what you are actually getting! When purchasing  a powdered super food you want to know the exact amount of each nutrient that is in the product.  Fortifeye  Organic Super Food shows you on the label exactly how much of each nutrient is in one scoop. This new Blue green super food is a combination of Spirulina, kale, spinach, barley grass juice, wheat grass juice, parsley, cucumbers, peppermint leaf, blue berries, strawberries, cranberries and cinnamon.  These particular fruits and vegetables were picked to be compliant with Paleo and FODMAP diets .  This combination also works well synergistically with potent anti oxidants profiles to promote overall wellness in the eyes and body.  When combined with Fortifeye Super Protein and Fortifeye Super omega, this superfood  can be used as a meal replacement.  Fortifeye Organic Blue Green Superfood will be available by March 2016. Fortifeye Vitamins released their new bio active whey protein concentrate from grass fed New Zealand A2  Cows in November 2015.  learn more about Fortifeye Super Protein here :  www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com

 

Why I developed a new grass fed whey protein concentrate.

Why I developed a new grass fed whey protein concentrate by Dr Michael Lange

After years of nutritional research with macular degeneration and dry eye patients I found a large percentage of these patients were deficient in glutathione. Most of these patients were lacking the specific amino acids necessary to stimulate glutathione production do to their poor diets. I also found the best way to stimulate glutathione was for these patients to consume a non denatured whey protein concentrate once or twice daily. I rapidly found out all whey protein is not created equal. I have developed my reputation of developing the highest quality supplements in the industry and not cutting any corners in the development of nutritional supplements. I have found after working with patients for nearly 25 years that the vast majority are not getting good quality protein during the day especially for breakfast. When I started to reccomend a whey protein supplement to my patients I found that a really good quality protein with a decent concentration was hard to find for an affordable price. I started to research different types of whey protein and found out most whey protein is overly processed and comes from cows that are fed genetically modified grains,filled with pesticides, antibiotics, synthetic sweeteners, binders and hormones. I also found that most cows are A1 cows that have gone thru a genetic mutation altering the beta casein protein in the milk causing many digestive issues and other potential health problems. After extensive research I wanted a whey protein that came from A2 cows that graze year round on pesticide free grass and are not given antibiotics or hormones of any type. I also elected to use a whey protein concentrate instead of a whey protein isolate. The whey concentrate is the least processed form of whey protein that has not been stripped of the good fats, immunoglobulins ,minerals and enzymes. Whey protein isolates are overly processed and stripped of the valuable anti aging immunoglobulins. I also wanted a non denatured whey protein concentrate to maintain the natural quality of the whey protein the way God intended it. Non Denatured whey protein has the highest biological value of any protein. I found with my patients one of the best ways to stimulate glutathione is by consuming a non denatured whey protein concentrate daily. When protein is heated or denatured it converts covalent bonded cysteine to cystine a much less bio-available form of the amino acid. Covalent bonded cysteine is the most important amino acid responsible for the production of glutathione. Glutathione is crucial at all ages for a strong immune system. Lastly I decided to use New Zealand Grass fed A2 cows as the source for Fortifeye Super Protein because these cows met all of the criteria I required for the perfect protein I can stand behind and trust. A2 cows milk have not gone through a genetic mutation that alters the protein causing the digestive issues and other potential health problems associated with A1 cows milk. I worked for some time on a natural organic flavor system combined with non gmo sunflower lecithin to make both the vanilla and chocolate flavors delicious and creamy. Fortifeye Super Protein since it is grass fed year round has a higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 than a grain fed cows milk. This higher omega 3 ratio is crucial when dealing with patients with dry eye. Also since this is a grass fed concentrate it is much higher in CLA (good fat) and Lactoferrin (muti-functional protein) both have been found to be lower in dry eye patients. Making a smoothie in the am for breakfast using Fortifeye Super Protein or another non denatured whey protein concentrate from grass fed New Zealand A2 cows is a great way to start the am. I also recommend drinking another smoothie within 30 minutes of working out to maximize the results of your workout. Many of my patients have improved dry eye symptoms , lost  fat  and gained muscle when they have started following some simple life style adjustments and added a daily smoothie using this type of protein. I developed Fortifeye Super Protein so doctors and consumers now have a whey protein concentrate they can trust. You can purchase Fortifeye Super protein online at www.fortifeye.com or thru any physician that carries Fortifeye Supplements.  learn more science behind Fortifeye Super Protein here:  www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com

Natural treatment of dry eyes by Dr Michael Lange

Dry Eye Vitamins

revised article by Dr. Michael Lange 12/6/15
The day I graduated from Optometry school in 1992 is the day I began looking for natural approaches to help my patients.  I have tried just about every combination of vitamins and minerals in an effort to  improve ocular and overall health.  I started the Fortifeye Vitamin company and became a certified nutrition specialist in my quest to find the nutritional answers I was looking for.  I have been involved and am currently involved in ongoing nutritional research aimed at helping patients.   Since I live and practice in Florida one of the biggest problems I encounter with my patients is dry eye syndrome. It seems that just about everyone in the Florida area has some form of dry eye.  Dry eye nutrition is an area I have been involved in for numerous years. I have developed and re developed many dry eye vitamins over the…

New Zealand Grass Fed Whey Protein Concentrate from A2 cows boost immune system.

27 Nov

stimulate your immune system with grass fed whey protein concentrate and just maybe help your dry eyes too.

Natural Dry Eye Treatment

Dr Michael Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins has developed a new grass fed whey protein concentrate from New Zealand A2 cows called Fortifeye Super Protein.  This protein will be available in the middle of December and will come in 2 flavors: chocolate and vanilla.  Dr. Lange used about 10% more organic flavoring along with organic sunflower lecithin to make both have a delicious creamy  taste.  These A2 cows have not gone thru any genetic mutations altering the casein protein the way A1 cows have. Very few grass fed whey proteins come from A2 cows.  These cows are free range and feed on pesticide free grass all year long. This whey protein concentrate will have a higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 than a grain fed  protein. The CLA  ( good fat) will also be higher in a grass fed whey protein concentrate over a grain fed  protein.   This whey protein…

Nutrition for Dry Eye

the latest in nutrition for dry eyes!!

Dry Eye Vitamins

Nutrition for Dry Eyes by Michael Lange OD, CNS

Nutrition for dry eye is a subject I discuss with my patients on a daily basis.  I have a very large dry eye patient population and have learned what works and what does not work over the last 25 years.  I have used the traditional approach using a combination of heating and massaging the lid margins to open the meibomian glands, using a good artificial tear with hyaluronic acid like oasis tears plus or blink preservative free and  cleaning the lids with a good lid hygiene foam like ocusoft or cliradex.  So for dry eye 3 things are still crucial:  cleaning, heating and lubricating.  I have also used all the prescription medications available for dry eye over the past 25 years.  Since I have become more in tune with the natural approach to dry eyes I find I prescribe medication very rarely now.
