How does (Can-C™ N-Acetylcarnosine) actually work to reverse cataracts?

It is now known that cataracts are the result of elevating levels of “ascorbate oxidation” or oxidative stress due in part to oxygen free radicals in the eyes of humans and animals. This unchecked oxidation results in the cross linking of lens proteins, which is a slow glycosylation process. Cross linking of the lens proteins eventually causes a yellowing or browning pigmentation of the lens or (lens opacification) limiting the amount of light that reaches the retina, resulting in worsening vision.
