Keep an Eye on Healthy Vision

Recent studies have proved that taking vitamins and antioxidants supplements may help you preventing macular degeneration, a problem predominantly found in elderly adults causing loss of central vision.

Most people suffering from macular degeneration have problems reading, seeing details, keeping focus and recognizing faces. This issue is the leading cause of central vision loss, also called blindness, in the United States for people age fifty and older. Younger people can also suffer from macular degeneration in some rare cases.

So, what is available? What can be taken to promote healthy eyes? Start out with vitamins. Vitamins A, C and E can prevent macular degeneration. Yes, carrots (remember it?) are great for your eyes because they offer plenty of carotenoids. Minerals may help too, such as zinc and selenium, the most important ones for maintaining good vision.

Several herbal supplements may keep your eyes in good shape. Lutein is the most used one, a great antioxidant found in many green leafy vegetables and also taken as a supplement (10mg of lutein should be enough). Ginkgo Biloba can also help for early stages of macular degeneration, by taking 150mg a day.

Finally, make sure to wear sun glasses, good ones that can block ultraviolet rays, preventing eye damage.

Look for supplements containing a combination of vitamins, minerals and herbs. Those products are the most efficient for eye support, as we normally need a little bit of everything to keep our eyes in good shape.

    As a diabetic who is always aware your eyes are at risk, do you know which of these issues would be one of the causes of blindness in diabetics? Is there one particular supplement that would be better than others?

    Most people live their life as the view. One dog can do that. Animals can live by their sensory factors. You are more than that. What we do is to rise above our sensory factors and create that inner vision that modern science now tells us that projects outward in the world. That simply is not foo-foo physical health more. That’s the reality. Literally our world project us beyond our vision internally.
