Eye & Vision
The eye is a delicate structure vulnerable to damage from any sources. External threats include exposure to excessive UV light, environmental pollutants and secondhand cigarette smoke, while internal threats include pro-inflammatory foods, high sugar levels and diets lacking in key nutrients. Regular intake of eye-healthy foods and supplements is an effective way to help ensure healthy vision. Beneficial phytonutrients like lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin help protect against cataracts and glaucoma, while antioxidants help support capillary integrity. Current research is also pointing out the benefits of anti-inflammatory nutrients like EPA, DHA and GLA. Supplements can target underlying issues that contribute to visual decline, and proactive nutritional support can keep your eyes healthy for decades to come.
