IC™ – 150 Tabs – provides a unique blend of antioxidants, amino acids and other nutrients that nourish the lens of the eye and protect it from free radical damage.
IC™ - 150 Tabs - provides a unique blend of antioxidants, amino acids and other nutrients that nourish the lens of the eye and protect it from free radical damage. IC helps the body to halt the progression of cataracts and to reverse those which are not too far advanced. Although IC is specifically formulated for cataracts, it is also of benefit to macular degeneration, glaucoma, and other degenerative conditions of the eye.
IC™ protects the lens of the eye against free radical damage in two ways: (1) by providing nutritional antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, beta carotene, glutathione), and (2) by supplying the raw materials from which the body makes protective enzymes (superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione reductase, glutathione peroxidase).
Suggested Use: Program dose is 5 tablets daily, in divided amounts with meals, for up to one year or as directed by your health care practitioner. Post program maintenance: 2 tablets per day.

Q: “Why is there no lutein in IC™? I read that lutein is important for the eyes.”
A: Lutein is only important if you are not taking IC™. The body makes its own lutein, provided you give it enough of the raw materials it needs to do so.
The rationale for IC is explained in the chapter, "Cataracts", in NUTRITIONAL SOLUTIONS FOR 88 CONDITIONS: Correct the Causes
