Resveratrol

Researchers say  appears to stop and even reverse the growth of the harmful blood vessels that lead to eye disorders – such as age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in seniors… And diabetic retinopathy, which leads to vision loss in some 20% of diabetics and is the top cause of new blindness amongst middle-aged people.
This process is called angiogenesis. When researchers gave resveratrol to a group of mice with the condition, the abnormal blood vessels practically vanished. The researchers believe this could work on humans just as well, according to the study in the American Journal of Pathology.

When taken orally, resveratrol appears to be well-absorbed by humans, but its bioavailability is relatively low because it is rapidly metabolized and eliminated. (More Information)
