Vitamins For Your Eyes

4 Jul

Eyes are one of the most hard-working parts of our bodies. Their significance in our lives is invaluable. Our very understanding and appreciation of the world comes from our vision, for which, the eyes are solely responsible. We, in turn, owe it to ourselves and to our eyes, to provide proper nourishment, so they stay healthy. That Vitamins are essential for our eye health is a largely known fact. But what other foods, are good for our eyes?

  1. Zinc is an essential requirement for the eyes. While that may sound a bit odd, there is a reason our mothers insist we had yogurt. One of those reasons is that yogurt is a great food source for Zinc. Without Zinc, the protective pigment called Melanin is not produced in sufficient quantities. So dairy products, meats and beans are a must

  2. Green leafy vegetables are a big prerequisite, because they prevent eye-diseases. With the Lutein they generate, leafy vegetables and eggs slow down the degeneration of eyes, preventing illnesses such as cataracts.

  3. Another highly recommended eye food is anything rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids. They too help arrest the aging process of the eyes, and keep them young & active. The best sources of Omega 3 Fatty Acids are fish such as Salmon, and fish oil.

  4. Next up is foods rich in Vitamins. Vitamins give our eyes the strength and fortification they need, to prevent disease and stay strong in the face of the bodily wear and tear. Nuts, almonds, sweet potatoes; there are many foods that are a great source of vitamins

  5. And finally, there is the age-old favorite – the carrot. Something that one has heard grandparents, parents, doctors, and even popular culture talk about constantly. Carrots give us beta carotene, an anti-oxidant vital to the health and longevity of eyes and their muscles.

Our eyes are our most powerful tools. They let us see the beautiful world, to see our loved ones, to learn, to appreciate, and to be human. Treat them with care and with the food they rightly deserve!
