I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Our weekend was much busier than normal around here.
This place was hopping as our Labor Day sale on Patriot Power Greens came to a close.
And people were jumping on this special stock-up like Ellie on a soup bone.
Clearly, you know a good deal when you see one – and I’m pretty happy I could put a FREE bottle of Digestive Freedom Plus in so many folks’ hands.
And make sure you’ll have your Greens on hand as fall approaches.
Now, I want to share a little tip today that surprised me. Maybe it will surprise you too…
We all know the old saying about an apple a day. But what about an orange?
I’m not sure why, but people don’t think about oranges as healthy the way we do about apples. Maybe that’s because most of us don’t eat oranges that frequently. When we have an orange, it’s typically not the fruit, but a glass of juice.
I mean, we know that oranges are rich in vitamin C, but we don’t think about them much beyond that.
Maybe a study I just read will change our minds about this.
Because having just 1 orange a day can reduce the risk of macular degeneration by up to 60%. That is huge, folks.
You should know, this was not a small study. It followed 2,000 people.
This was not a short study. It lasted 15 years.
This was not a study on young folks. All study participants were over 50.
And this was not some difficult, tough to swallow and hard to find miracle solution.
Oranges taste great, are easy to get and aren’t expensive either.
Macular degeneration effects over 10 million people a year, when you include those with early stages. It’s scary, it doesn’t have a cure, your doctor has very few solutions… and guess what? It’s preventable.
If you don’t smoke, if you eat green veggies, if you get regular exercise, your chances of getting macular degeneration go down.
And now you know another quick tip to protect your eyes, and enjoy a juicy snack too.
Besides vitamin C, oranges are chock full of flavonoids, nutrient compounds that your eyes just love. Now, you can get flavonoids from nearly all fruits and vegetables, including apples.
But when it comes to your eyes, the data in the study didn’t show the same prevention power with other foods. Not like this.
So why not pick up a bushel and make them a regular part of your routine?
Just pick organic ones, if you can.
