Boost your Eyesight
Don’t take your eyes for granted. Good eye health starts with the food on your plate. From smartphones to the TV set, we are using our eyes to stare at small fonts and images more than ever before. So ask yourself this, are you eating foods that are best for your eyes? Are you performing relaxation exercises? Are you doing that much effort to keep your eyes fit and clear. Of course eyes are the most important part of your life. Without which you are almost nothing. While we stay busy carrying out our daily routines, and spend hours in front of the computer screen or glued to a good book, we rarely take time out to visit the eye doctor. However, there are a few simple exercises and balanced diet that you can carry out that hardly require much time or effort.
Dark Leafy Greens
Nutrient-dense greens like spinach, kale, turnip greens and collard greens should be top of the menu when it comes to protecting our vision and eye health. They all contain two important nutrients – lutein and zeaxanthin – which have powerful antioxidant functions in the body, helping to prevent cell damage.
Fish, particularly salmon, can be a great food to consume for eye health. Salmon and other fish have omega-3 fatty acids. These are “healthy” fats. Omega-3 fatty acids can contribute to visual development and the health of the retina in the back of the eye. Omega-3s are also known for enhancing your brain power which indirectly leads to better vision. They can also help prevent dry eyes.
Eggs are a great food to eat for eye health. The yolks contain vitamin A, lutein, zeaxanthin, and zinc, which are all vital to eye health. Vitamin A safeguards the cornea. The cornea is the surface of the eye. Eggs contain proteins that are beneficial to the lens of your eye. The yolk is equally good for you as it helps prevent eye diseases as you age.
This fiber-rich veggie is rich in vitamin C, and also contains eye-boosting beta-carotene, as well as lutein and zeaxanthin. Add cooked broccoli to omelets and frittatas, or toss it in marinara sauces and pasta dishes.
You’ve probably been hearing carrots were good for you since your days of watching Bugs Bunny, but why? Carrots contain beta carotene, which is good for the retina and protects against sun damage. Dip carrots in peanut butter for a healthy, midday snack.
An explosion of food-related research shows a strong connection between food and health. Growing evidence supports the idea that vitamins and minerals in various foods fuel your body and protect vision for the long haul.
