Eye Fitness and Nutrition with Healthy Eyes

By DH Owens

Fitness and health of eyes means good care, good nutrition paying special attention to nutrients the eye needs, and eye exercises. Fitness for your eyes is very important for a lifetime of good vision.

The role of fitness in health: 

 

Most of us take our eyes for granted, never thinking of them as muscles or as organs needing special nutrients.

The fact is that fit eyes not only need exercise, they need the proper eye-protecting nutrients. 

In our home we think of leafy greens (spinach, chard, kale, and collard greens) as eye foods. "Feeding" our eyes properly is good insurance for a lifetime of good vision. 

Our eyes, as well as the rest of our bodies, are affected by the chemicals and pesticides in our bodies. Eat organic whenever you can for the health of your body.

Eye Nutrients

Vitamin A: Sweet potatoes,  carrots, and butternut squash.

Vitamin C: Bell peppers (red or green), kale, strawberries, broccoli, oranges, and cataloupe.

Vitamin E: Sunflower seeds, almonds, and hazelnuts.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin: Spinach, kale, and collard greens.

Selenium: Brazil nuts and yeast.

Bioflavonoids: Citrus fruits, cherries, grapes, and plums.

Water: Drinking adequate water each day helps all of your body, including your eyes. Filtered or distilled water is best, of course.
