GOOD NUTRITION CAN HELP

YOUR EYES!

 

Recent studies have shown that certain nutrients can have a positive effect on the wellness of the visual system. Eating broccoli, for instance, not only promotes healthy eating, but also encourages good visual health habits as well.

A 2012 report from the Ocular Nutrition Society listed three nutrients that are key to promoting healthy eyes and vision.

 

Omega-3 fatty acids

Found in fish oils and flaxseed

 

Lutein

Found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale. The USDA guidelines recommend 4-8mg/day.

 

Zeaxanthin

Found in dark green leafy vegetables, corn and orange peppers.

 

An easy rule to remember: Eat dark green leafy veggies, and all veggies with color to promote

ocular health.
