Seeing through walls or into the future isn’t something that is likely going to happen to you anytime soon— unless you have night vision goggles. However, just because you might not have superhero vision capabilities, it doesn’t mean that you should stop caring for your eyes. With these 5 foods, you can help promote vision health in an all-natural way.
It’s no secret that carrots are good for your vision health. So what is it about this sweet vegetable that makes it ideal for the strength and care of your eyes? Vitamin A. Carrots are jam packed with Vitamin A, which helps your vision. And, packed with 113% of your daily value of Vitamin A, it’s no wonder that carrots are considered a miracle food.
Kale is probably the trendiest vegetable right now, and it’s no wonder. Dark leafy greens such as kale and spinach, are rich in antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin which help absorb blue light which is harmful to the retina, thus protecting your eyes from harm.
Packed in protein and versatile for both breakfast and dinner foods, eggs are packed full of the above mentioned lutein and zeaxanthin, which help to prevent against macular degeneration.
It’s no surprise that this superfood is also good for your vision health as well. Packed full of Vitamin E, almonds help to prevent against macular degeneration–thus increasing the longevity and health of your eyes. If you don’t want to snack on a handful of almonds every day, try incorporating almond milk into your diet.
Cataracts and macular degeneration are two eye problems that, although common, are less fun than waiting in a long line at the DMV. However, Vitamin C, which can be found in berries, helps to prevent against these two problems. Plus, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries not only make a healthy snack, but a delicious one as well.
Sometimes it seems like old age is something that is bound to take over your vision health, and that there’s nothing to do that will make you see better. However, by incorporating these 5 superfoods into your diet, you can have a clearer vision and a healthier (or at least more organic) take on the life you live.
