To maintain eye health as you get older, it is essential to fuel your eyes with the right nutrients, to protect against the degenerative ailments often associated with aging.
We know that exercise, good fluid and dietary intake, adequate sleep patterns, low levels of stress and a well chosen lifestyle are all good for our health generally and our eyes as a consequence. This is not enough however to ensure your eyes are protected against disease or hereditary weakness.
It is essential that your eyes are protected against free radicals, glycation and inflammation. This requires taking a number of natural ingredients that have been proven to help resist the degeneration of the eyes, and other organs in the body as well. Maintaining healthy eyesight also depends on getting sufficient vitamins and dietary nutrients. These nutrients play a key role in keeping your eyes healthy and can help protect your eyes from infection and age-related problems. A well-balanced diet will provide much of what normal adults need. Vitamins A, C, and E are essential for good eyesight. Antioxidants can help protect the retina against damage due to smoking, UV rays or alcohol. An antioxidant known as lutein is particularly beneficial. This is found in leafy greens such as spinach and kale, and in yellow peppers and sweetcorn. In fact, a diet rich in brightly coloured fruit and vegetables offers the antioxidants essential for eye health.
