Feed Your Eyes.

by admin on July 10, 2013

There’s only so much a dab of color and a splash of mascara can do for tired, dull eyes.  The best way to brighten your baby blues is to eat antioxidant-rich foods targeted at eye health.  Next time you’re at the grocery store, head on over to the produce aisle and stock up on eye-brightening fruits and veggies.

Go 4  Green

Dark leafy greens eg spinach, Swiss chard,  kale, lighter leaves eg romaine & arugula, broccoli, (green vegetables  help preserve 20/20 vision)

 Vitamin C protects  from age-related macular degeneration,( eye condition that gradually damages the retina and causes vision loss )

 Lutein and zeaxanthin keep UVA rays from damaging the rods and cones of your eyes.  Dr.  Rocha,  of GRMC Vision Centre in Brandon, Manitobstates,

“We have lutein and zeaxanthin as pigments in the back part of the eye. 

Keeping that part well nourished helps maintain normal physiology at the back of the eye.” 

With a high concentration of beta-carotene, green leafy vegetables also prevent cataracts and night vision.

  • Broccoli , with selenium & alpha lipoic acid shields eyes from free radical damage.
  • Vitamin E and folic acid help restore eyesight
  • CoQ10 helps break down food into energy, so your eyes look awake and alert
  •  Orange vegetables—e.g. sweet potatoes, carrots—offer  a healthy dose of vitamins A and C, to improve  night vision.

 Eyesight  Food with Fruits

  • Mangos – good source  vitamin E, ( decrease eye pressure & relax eye muscles, a key component of good vision.)
  •  Apples – high in vitamins and minerals &  with quercetinto protect retina from UV rays
  • rutin, – stops small blood vessels from leaking into the retina.
  •  citrus fruits,e.g. grapes, cherries and oranges-rich concentrations of flavonoids that defend against cataracts and macular degeneration.

Enjoy a Crunchy Snack

Walnuts & almonds  give some omega-3s, to help the nerves of retina function properly and prevent dry-eye syndrome.  also offer  vitamin E, riboflavin, zinc and magnesium, .

(retina needs riboflavin in order to filter light, and magnesium calms your eye muscles (relaxed eye muscles are the key to normal vision).

Reduce Common  Zinc Deficiency

Zinc sends message to your liver to Release vitamin A  to be sent to to  eyes. The  eyes are vulnerable to macular degeneration and gradual vision loss. Eat your zinc in  legumes, such as chickpeas, kidney beans or lentils. Chicken, beef, oysters and pumpkin seeds are also high in zinc.

A quality of a multi-vitamin is added eye protection,  though nothing adds an extra sparkle to your eyes better than whole, organic foods.
