How should we keep our eyes healthy?We should consume powerful antioxidants to support the retina & macula.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are carotenoids which play crucial roles in the macular pigment density of the eye. These have been shown to be associated with a lower risk of AMD (Age Related Macular Degeneration). Lutein esters occur naturally in yellow to red fruits and vegetables.
Studies suggest that ingesting 6mg of lutein esters per day may be beneficial, Average dietary intake may only be 1-2mg/day.
The Anthocyanidins in Bilberries help stimulate the purple pigment that helps the rods in the eyes adapt to light & dark and may aid night vision.
The flavonoids in Quercetin, a plant pigment in fruit and vegetables, acts as an antihistamine and helps reduce itchiness in the eyes
Grape Seed has antiallergenic, antihistamine, and anti inflammatory properties and helps reduce eye strain.
