Since you woke up this morning think of all the things you have seen and your ability to see the world around you because of your eyes. Many of us take for granted our eye sight and take it as a given that it will always be there for us to look at our children grow, to admire the scenery on our next holiday, to watch television, to put on our make-up or read the next top seller.
However like all parts of our body our eyes need to be taken care of too. Ocular nutrition and eye health is an important part of helping maintain our vision and eye health as we age. One can safely say that every part of the human eye needs ocular nutrition support and nutrition to improve eye health. Healthy vision and the human eye are related to the health of the individual parts of the eye – the cornea, iris, macula, lens, optic nerve, pupil, retina and the vitreous humor. Ocular nutrition is one of the ways good vision can be supported.
As we age, many things can go wrong with our vision. Ultraviolet light from the sun can damage the lens and the cornea. Wind, dust, chlorine fumes, other chemicals, car fumes, freezing temperatures and physical injury are examples of threats to good vision. In the modern world we are putting our eye sight under more pressure to perform as we sit for longer periods in front of computer screens for example. Therefore we must start taking care of our eyes.
Benevits Eyebright is an excellent complex which provides the Ocular nutrition we need to support and maintain healthy eyes.Eyebright is a native European wild plant which has a traditional use in eye care. Benevits Eyebright contains the following:
Eyebright - Eyebright, Euphrasia officinalis, is a herb which is thought to tighten the mucous membrane tissue around the eye which may help relieve conjunctivitis and other inflammatory conditions of the eye.
Bilberry - Bilberries contain natural antioxidants called Anthocyanosides. These can help strengthen blood cells and may help reduce the chances of blood vessels haemorrhaging in the eye which can result in both macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. The Anthocyanosides which are antioxidants are able to bind the retina of the eye increasing regeneration of the visual pigments produced in the retina. Bilberry is great for eye strain and helps improve vision.
Carrot and Lutein - Carrot and lutein are carotenoids which help to protect the eye and may help improve vision. Lutein helps to protect the eye against photo toxic damage. It acts as an antioxidant and a filter of potentially damaging blue light and ultra violet radiation. It reduces age related cataracts and age related macular degeneration. It is also said to protect against some cancers especially of the eye.
Vitamin C and E - These two important vitamins are powerful antioxidants which can help protect the eye from damage.
Zinc - Research indicates that zinc might offer benefits to your eyes, helping to prevent or slow down the progression of serious eye conditions such as macular degeneration.
