Nutrition for Healthier Eyes

Eating properly can help to maintain excellent vision and even improve weak vision. An article at newstarget, in fact, outlines several different ways one can eat properly for vision and claims that a healthy diet is the foundation for excellent vision. If this is true, it may point to why so many Americans have failing vision, since our diets are noticeably lacking in vitamins, minerals, whole foods and superfoods.

The article, which does not advocate one certain diet for everyone, points out many ways one can use nutrition to improve their vision. The basic message is to eat more fruits and vegetables, such as dark leafy greens, colorful veggies full of phytonutrients like beets, carrots and squash, and fruits high in antioxidants, such as blackberries and strawberries. The article also advocates taking vitamin supplements, drinking fresh vegetable juices and adding superfoods, such as chlorella, spirulina, nutritional yeast to one’s diet.

In addition to eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, they also recommend reducing dietary sugars, which can diminish nutrients in the body and play a role in cross-linking of collagen fibers in the eye.

Other recommendations include getting enough essential fats, using herbal eye washes and resting your eyes by taking off your glasses.
