Is the above product commercially available?


Below is an interesting article on a single traditional Chinese medicine herb (pale butterflybush) and cataracts.

The reduction of cataracts in this mouse study is dramatic. Since cataracts are caused by degradation of the proteins within the lens AND the lens is not biological active (a "dead" tissue with no connection to the circulatory or nervous system), I am unsure how reducing inflammation, apoptosis, and oxidative stress can REDUCE the "cloudiness" of the lens. How does the therapeutic even get into the lens, if it is not directly injected into the lens or topically applied?

The wikipedia entry on "Lens (Vertebrate Anatomy)" contains the following text:


"The lens epithelium is a single layer of cells at the front of the lens between the lens capsule and the lens fibers.[4] By providing the lens fibers with nutrients and removing waste, the cells of the epithelium regulate maintain lens homeostasis.[8] As ions, nutrients, and liquid enter the lens from the aqueous humorNa+/K+-ATPase pumps in the lens epithelial cells pump ions out of the lens..."


So is the lens really biologically inactive?

It makes no sense that any part of our body would be dead unless it was something regularly discarded like hair, nails, skin. The eyes being extremely important to survival of individuals and the species as a whole, there would have to be some maintenance done. Good job in finding that


Chinese medicine is nothing to laugh at. They have been using it for thousands of years and have a great knowledge of herbs and interactions. Western medicine relies on drugs and surgery. Chinese medicine relies on herbs mainly. Though surgery is recognized as being needed sometimes, they don't turn to it automatically like they do in the west
