Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the causes for cataracts?

A cataract is a clouded eye lens, which can blur your vision and eventually cause vision loss. Let’s look at the common causes behind this condition.

Cause #1: Too-alkaline body causing calcium deposits in the eye

If your body is not acidic enough this can create a lot of body problems, including cataracts. When the blood is overly alkaline, you’re going to have a problem with calcium. Calcium won’t really go into the bones anymore--instead it goes into various other tissues, for example, to the eyes as cataracts. So the cause is calcium plaquing because the body is too alkaline.

Supporting your eye lenses with benfotiamine and NAC drops should help with this condition.


  • Consume apple cider vinegar (1 to 2 teaspoons stirred into about a cup of water)

  • Consume betaine hydrochloride

  • Consume benfotiamine (fat-soluble B1)

  • Take NAC drops (n-acetylcarnosine)

Cause #2: High-carb diet

When you consume too many carbs in the diet, you can deplete your vitamin B1 reserves and as result cause damage to your nerve cells throughout the body. People with diabetes have less sensitivity in their fingertips as a result. A similar thing can happen with your eye lens: it gets damaged and can cause cataracts.

The solution would be to consume benfotiamine (a fat-soluble version of vitamin B1)-which can restore the eye lens--as well as taking NAC drops. Meanwhile, you should improve your diet and avoid refined carbs and sugar. Doing these will ultimately help you to resolve this condition.


  • Consume benfotiamine (fat-soluble vitamin B1)

  • Take NAC (n-acetylcarnosine) drops

  • Avoid refined carbs and sugar

  • Avoid snacking

  • Do the Healthy Keto® diet

  • Do an intermittent fasting plan

Other causes:

  • Aging

  • Stress

  • Prednisone
