5 foods to boost your eye health

September 9, 2019 by zmx6233  

Nowadays, we stare at the monitor all day while working, if not, then read the news or reply to the messages on the phone. We read our novels in ebook form before we go to sleep. Our eyes are under extreme exertion every day. Have you ever thought about what you could do to help their health? 

Here is a list of 5 foods to boost your eye health. 

1.Salmon

Salmon is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals (including selenium, vitamin B12, and potassium), high-quality minerals, but the most important is their content of omega-3 fatty acids. Several topplay studies suggest omega-3 fatty acids can help protect eyes from dry eye syndrome and macular degeneration.

2.Beans and Legumes

Do you prefer a vegetarian, high-fiber option to keep your eyes healthy? Then black-eyed peas, lentils, kidney beans, and chickpeas are a great choice for you. Beans and legumes are known as a perfect source of zinc.

3.Citrus fruits

Citrus fruits are great sources of vitamin C. Such as vitamin E, vitamin C is an antioxidant that is recommended by the AOA (American Optometric Association) to fight age-related eye damage. Lemons, oranges, grapefruits are all rich in Vitamin-C.

4.Sweet potatoes

Interesting fact that orange-color fruits and vegetables – such as carrots, sweet potatoes, apricots, mangos – are rich in beta carotene- which helps your eyes’ ability to adjust easier to darkness.

5.Beef

Beef is a great source of zinc which has been determined as a key element of long-term eye health. It can help delay age-related sight loss. Meats like chicken breast and pork loin also contain zinc but in lower quantities than beef.
