Clearly Seeing the Benefits of a Healthy Diet

Introducing a few new foods to your diet can have a significant impact on ocular health. A recent study conducted by researchers at the Department of Ophthalmology and Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA, noted a 69% decrease in the risk of glaucoma in women who ate a minimum of one serving of kale and collard greens per month. The risk was decreased by almost 65% in subjects who ate over two servings of carrots weekly.

Here are some foods that benefit eye health.

     1. Kale

Kale contain the high amounts of the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. These carotenoids have been shown to reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration. Kale also contains beta carotene, which has been shown to support overall ocular health.

Spinach and romaine lettuce are other leafy greens that are high in these carotenoids. But kale is the hands down winner when  it comes to overall ocular nutrition.

     2. Blueberries

Blueberries are a cousin to the bilberry, which many know as beneficial to the eyes for their antioxidants. Blueberries are tastier and more readily available. They are also an excellent source of antioxidants called anthocyanidins and may help to promote circulation to the eyes.

     3. Salmon

Salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids. And, there is new evidence emerging about the benefits of omega-3s fatty acids and eye health. Studies suggest that omega-3s may play a role in protecting against AMD. It is believed that omega-3s may prevent the formation of new blood vessels in advanced AMD, and may help lubricate the eye lids, which enhances overall visual acuity.

     4. Oysters

Oysters contain high levels of zinc. The retina has one of the highest concentrations of zinc in the entire body. It is believed that the retina uses zinc in low light situations and that a deficiency in zinc can lead to night blindness.

     5. Brazil Nuts

Brazil nuts are high in selenium. Selenium is concentrated in the lens of the eye and is believed to preserve eye health. Other foods high in selenium include sunflower seeds, bran, and caviar.

All of these foods promote ocular health two-fold, as obesity is a factor in developing macular degeneration and these foods can help you to maintain a healthy weight.

     6. Eye Supplements

Most Americans don’t consume the recommended 5-7 servings daily of fruits and vegetables. If you’re one of them, using supplements can help to make up for what is lacking in your diet.

Claroxan’s unique formula includes optimal amounts of lutein, zeaxanthin and beta-carotene, as well as many other beneficial natural ingredients. Bilberry, l-Glutathione and citrus bioflavonoids are just a few of the components added to Claroxan’s proprietary blend. These high-quality ingredients help to promote better vision while aiding in the prevention of future ocular health issues.
