Eye health is something we rarely think about, but supporting it is a simple matter.

Your eyes need specific nutrients and plenty of antioxidants. Whether you obtain them through your diet with berries (blueberry is the champion!), fruits and veggies that have dark color (like beets, Swiss chard, carrots, pomegranate, raspberries, etc.) or by adding supplements to your diet, it’s important is to get these antioxidants on a daily basis. Supplements make that easy. Better yet, they ensure that you get a constant, optimal amount.

 

For the health of your eyes, we recommend these products:

Lutein:

Lutein is part of the family of carotenoids. Its antioxidant action allows not only to preserve your vision, but also to prevent cataracts and slow down the development of age-related macular degeneration, which is the main cause of blindness among the elderly.

 

 

Ginkgo Biloba:

This ancient plant, originally from Asia, increases blood circulation in the eyes. Ginkgo helps improve distal visual acuity (the capacity to see details on distant object) in people affected with macular degeneration. Ginkgo biloba is also well known for its antioxidant action.

 

Besides these supplements, omega-3 fatty acids have also an important place in the prevention of ocular problems. Make sure you are getting two to three portions of fish rich in omega-3 per week or opt for:

Omega-3 Extra Strength:

It comes in an enteric-coated softgel that enhances absorption of the essential fatty acids while also preventing fishy aftertaste.

 

Vision problems that can be treated with supplements: Vision problems that cannot be treated with supplements:
Cataracts Myopia
Macular degeneration Hyperopia
Glaucoma Presbyopia

 

What else can you do? Don’t forget to take control of serious health problems that can affect or precipitate ocular problems. These include smoking, being overweight, cardiovascular diseases, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, diabetes, stress and anxiety.

Finally, have your eyes checked regularly. All of these simple tips will allow you to prevent many problems related to your vision.
