How well are you feeding your eyes?

Spend a bit of time now to look at the eye nutrients in your diet, and you may well benefit in years to come.

The following nutrients have been shown to be helpful for eye health.

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Zinc
  • Lutein
  • Zeaxanthin
  • Omega-3 fats

Increased levels of these nutrients in people with macular degeneration have good effect, reducing the risk of further damage to vision.   Keeping up good dietary levels of these nutrients is also good even if your eyes are healthy, and they may in time be proved to help prevent aging eye conditions.

So the questions for everyone are:

  • How well does your diet feed your eyes?
  • Do you know what foods these nutrients are in?
  • Do you choose to eat foods rich in these nutrients?

Spend a bit of time now to look at the eye nutrients in your diet, and you may well benefit in years to come. 

Dietary-supplement products are one option, but since this is a long-term project, why not aim to achieve the same nutrients through adjusting what you eat?

 

For smokers:

Smoking puts extra load on what these nutrients do in the eyes  - which is probably why smoking is the biggest changeable risk factor for macular degeneration.  If you can't stop smoking, making sure that your eye nutrition is optimal is even more important.
