3 Foods That Help Maintain Your Eyes' Health

3 Foods That Help Maintain Your Eyes' Health

We've all heard the old wives' tale about eating carrots giving you night vision or some such. While carrots wouldn't suddenly give you super-sight, at least not regular carrots from planet earth, certain foods could indeed have a marked positive effect on your eyesight. Here are a few of them: 

Fresh fruits and vegetables      
There you go – carrots are definitely good for your eyesight – and not just carrots, but in fact most fresh produce, especially the colorful ones, have essential vitamins, minerals, carotenoids and antioxidants that slow down the degeneration of eye cells due to age or other conditions.

Fish and other seafood have omega 3 fatty acids, and also essential minerals that help maintain the health of your eyes, with omega 3s also being key to the normal functioning of your retina.

Nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pistachios and peanuts have necessary minerals, oils and omega 3s that, again, help keep the wear and tear of the cells in your eye in check. Additionally, peanuts also contain resveratrol, which performs functions similar to those of antioxidants.

Balance your diet properly with foods that also help maintain your eyes' health. Vision deteriorates significantly with age, making you dependent on others, as well as greatly reducing the quality of life. Slowing this down through simple adjustments to your diet isn't so troublesome, considering what you gain in exchange.
