WELLNESS WEDNESDAY: TOP FOODS FOR EYE HEALTH

August 26, 2020

by Michele Ciancimino

Remember when your mom told you to eat your carrots because they’re good for your eyes? Mom was right again!

Carrots are loaded with beta-carotene, a nutrient our body uses to make Vitamin A, which plays a role in maintaining clear vision.

Some of the most common conditions that affect our eyes as we age are macular degeneration and cataracts. But we can maintain our eye health by focusing on a few key nutrients in addition to Vitamin A:

Lutein and Zeaxanthin help protect the eyes from the harmful ultraviolet rays in sunlight. You can find these in spinach, kale, tomatoes, broccoli, and red or yellow peppers.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can lower your risk of developing cataracts and slow the progression of macular degeneration. You can add some more kiwi, strawberries, oranges, tomatoes and yellow peppers to your daily routine to get more Vitamin C.

Vitamin E is another antioxidant that helps protect your eyes from free radical damage and may even help prevent age-related cataracts. Add some Vitamin E to your diet with nuts and seeds (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pumpkin & sunflower seeds), spinach, kiwi, squash, avocado, and broccoli.

Include a variety of fruits and veggies in your daily diet to make sure your eyes stay sharp for years to come!

Find out how personalized nutrition can help you achieve more vibrant health by scheduling a discovery session.
