BRUDYPIO has been conceived to supplement daily requirements in essential fatty acids of the Omega-3 family and of the included group of vitamins and minerals, of carotenoids, such as lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene, and of bilberry and olive leaf flavonoids, among other components. (KEEP READING)
Glutathione has been included as a source of Cysteine, which is an essential amino acid for the endogen glutathione synthesis and is the main cell antioxidant. It also incorporates some natural flavonoids as anthocyanidines from the blueberries.
Patients suffering chronic open angle glaucoma (also those suffering the exfoliation type) do have low levels of glutathione in serum1 and in aqueous humor2 when comparing with healthy controls, showing exaggerated oxidative stress markers both at serum level3 and in aqueous humor4 much over normal population. Some researchers consider that the harm provoked by these oxidative factors could be the cause of the premature trabecular sclerosis (accelerated aging process), inducing blockage in aqueous humor drainage pushing up intraocular pressure5, and perhaps also harming axons of ganglion cells at the optic nerve head (causing excavation). This would justify offering supplementation with antioxidants to this group of patients.
