Vitamin A and beta-carotene help with eye health by keeping the surface of the eye, or the cornea, moist and healthy. Lack of vitamin A often leads to dry eyes, which can in turn lead to serious issues, clouding of the front of the eye, and even vision loss.
Zinc. A powerful mineral that helps support the health of the retina, cell membranes, and protein structure of the eye. Zinc enables vitamin A to travel from the liver to the retina to produce melanin. Melanin is a pigment necessary to protect your eyes from ultraviolet light.
Taurine is an amino acid that is crucial to eye health. Sufficient levels can help prevent age-related vision loss and a deficiency can lead to troubling vision problems.
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) can help prevent vision loss and damage including eyelid inflammation, irritation, and redness in the eye.
Grape Seed. A study published in the University of Maryland Medical Center found that antioxidants in grape seeds protect cells in the retina, which are responsible for your ability to recognize colors and to see in low-light conditions. Grape seed extract can also suppress free radicals, reverse oxidative damage and protect retinal cells from stress-induced early vision loss
Quercetin is a powerful flavonoid that gives fruit and vegetables their vibrant colors. It’s also a type of antioxidant that fights free radicals in your body. Studies done in Japan on humans suggest that quercetin works very hard to protect the retina of the eye.
Bilberry fruit. Legend has it that British Royal Air Force pilots during WWII bombed the enemy with extraordinary fatal accuracy because their night vision intensified immensely after eating bilberry jam. Even though later research hasn’t confirmed that particular event another recent 2-year study in people with glaucoma, a condition that leads to a gradual loss of sight, found that taking 120 mg of bilberry anthocyanins daily improved visual function by around 30%, while the placebo group experienced worsened visual function
Lutein is a type of vitamin called a carotenoid. It’s mostly known to improve or even prevent age-related macular disease which is the leading cause of blindness and vision impairment.
Lycopene is the most powerful antioxidant in the carotene family. As a carotenoid, lycopene helps to fight free radicals. Studies show that it may help lower the risk of macular degeneration, and cataract and that low levels of lycopene are associated with a higher risk of age-related macular degeneration.
