The nutrition for your eye's health

A healthy diet provides essential nutrients that help keep your eyes healthy.Findings from the Age-Related Eye Disease Study -- a major clinical trial sponsored by the National Eye Institute, also indicate vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and lutein may help reduce the risk of advanced age-related macular degeneration -- a leading cause of blindness in the elderly.


Carrots provide vitamin A and it's precursor, beta-carotene. Vitamin A is essential for vision because it's needed to form rhodopsin, which is a protein that absorbs light in the retina. Vitamin A is also needed for normal function of the cornea and membranes that surround your eyes. Carrots are also rich in potassium and fiber while being low in calories and almost fat-free.


Oranges are good for vision because they're an excellent source of vitamin C, which was used in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, and your body needs it to make connective tissue and for healthy blood vessels, including those found in your eyes. Oranges will do more than keep your eyes healthy because they also contain potassium, fiber, calcium, and folate.


Although oranges are better known as a source of vitamin C, strawberries are also packed with that important nutrient, so they may help to protect your eyes from age-related diseases and keep the connective tissue and blood vessels around your eyes healthy. Strawberries are also rich in folate (a B vitamin), fiber, and an array of phytochemicals. Instant strawberry powder is a natural and clever way to introduce extra fruit into the diet,  the Naturalin annual export of Strawberry Powder to Southeast Asia market reached tens of tons, and the unique flavour is praised by the customers.


Spinach is connected to eye health because it contains lutein, which is related to vitamin A. Research shows that people who eat lutein-rich green leafy vegetables may have a decreased risk of macular degeneration. Spinach also gives you iron, vitamin K and folate, and is very low in calories.


Walnuts are good for your eyes because they contain vitamin E, which was used tin the Age-Related Eye Disease study, and a significant amount of alpha-linolenic acid, which is the plant version of omega-3 fatty acid. Walnuts are also rich in zinc and other minerals, plus several B-complex vitamins. Eat raw nuts with a piece of fresh fruit as a healthy snack or toast chopped walnuts and add them to a salad or cooked green vegetables.
