Did you take your "eye vitamins" today?
Deficiencies in particular vitamins can increase the risk of some eye conditions, such as cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Research suggests that some vitamin and mineral supplements may help protect against or slow the development of these conditions.
In general, it’s best to eat a diet with a full complement of nutrition to ensure you aren’t vitamin-deficient. That’s true not only for your eye health, but also for your overall health. For example, leafy green vegetables such as spinach, kale, mustard greens and others offer many of the vitamins and nutrients that are good for eye health. Likewise, if you want to boost your omega-3 intake, you can find it in fatty fish and many types of nuts and seeds.
Our Omega 3 supplement and EyeHealth multi vitamin hold so many benefits for eye health, normal comfortable ocular function and eyesight.
Several studies suggest omega-3 fatty acids may help protect adult eyes from
macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of blindness and vision impairment,
dry eye syndrome, a chronic eye disease caused by a decrease in tear production or increase in tear evaporation.
It is also thought to promote healthy retinal function.
Essential fatty acids also may help proper drainage of intraocular fluid from the eye, decreasing the risk of high eye pressure and glaucoma.
Essential vitamins like Vitamin C also support the health of blood vessels in the eye.
Vitamin E may serve as a great antioxidant and agent against cataracts and Lutein has anti-inflammatory properties and is known to improve or even prevent age-related macular disease.
This supplement is a natural way to look after your health and eyesight.
