As we spend more time indoors and around an abundance of blue light-emitting screens including phones, TVs, and even smart refrigerator displays, we need to take special care of our eye health. Overall health and the immune system can be strengthened by exercising, meditating, and eating a healthy diet, however, it’s not easy to get an adequate amount of all the nutrients with our busy lives.
Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables are necessary for maintaining a healthy body. Aside from that, dark leafy vegetables and fruits are excellent sources of two carotenoids, lutein, and zeaxanthin, that occur in the macula and retina of the human eye.
Numerous studies have found that both carotenoids are associated with improved vision, UV and blue light protection, clarity of vision, and protection from free radicals. Lutein and zeaxanthin-rich foods may slow the onset of age-related eye diseases. Eating foods rich in carotenoids, such as spinach, kale, and broccoli, may reduce the risk of cataracts by half.
Lutein & Zeaxanthin & Bilberry Extract supplement by Green5 contains 40 mg of Lutein, 25 mg of Bilberry Extract, and 3 mg of Zeaxanthin. It is one of the best ways to replenish your body’s carotenoids.
