Where are the most beneficial substances for vision? How many of them need to use, so that the benefits were real?       

 Fish - for spice

Nutritionists strongly recommend that we eat fish two to three times a week. It turns out that ophthalmologists support them in this with both hands! Fish contains the most beneficial fatty acids and polyunsaturated fats that we also need for eye health. Especially Omega-3.

How much you need: 300 grams twice a week.

Blueberry - from fatigue

This berry is the main component of all vitamin complexes for the eyes. It protects our eyes from overstrain and fatigue. After all, blueberries contain anthocyanins, which help maintain healthy capillaries, through which nutrients are delivered to the eye muscles and nerves. Thanks to these substances, blood circulation in the eye vessels is improved. In addition, blueberries contain vitamins A and C. Thanks to their antioxidant properties, these vitamins reduce the harmful effects of free radicals.

How much you need: 1 - 2 spoons per day or frozen berries, or in the form of jam, jelly.

Grapefruit - anti-aging lens

The grapefruit contains many useful substances: vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, iron, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, folic acid and many types of vitamin B. But the most important thing in grapefruit is the content of special substances, bioflavonoids, which slow down the aging of the eye lenses.

That is why the most useful part of grapefruit is a transparent skin that separates the lobules, which contain these bioflavonoids. Because of them, the fruit gets a bitter taste, but these substances are very good for eye health. It is therefore worth eating grapefruit whole, without removing the skin from it.

So a whole grapefruit is much more useful than fresh juice from it.

How much is needed: daily or once in two days one by one.

Pistachios - for retina

It's no secret that all nuts are rich in minerals, vital for the normal functioning of the human body. Nutrition leaders include almonds, walnuts and pecans. But on the first line of the charts useful nuts - pistachios.

In addition to copper, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, fiber, and "healthy" fats, pistachios contain lutein and zeaxanthin. Although the names of these substances sound mysterious, they are very useful for the eyes, as they help prevent muscle dystrophy associated with aging. As American researchers claim, a 28-gram serving of California pistachios (about a handful) contains more useful antioxidants than any other nuts. That is, 342 micrograms of lutein and zeaxanthin: 13 times more than in hazelnuts or a glass of orange juice.

How much is needed: a handful, or 30 grams every day.

Cabbage - from aches and redness of the eyes

She, too, needs to be eaten - nutritionists say, although not all (with caution, with increased acidity of the stomach). And for the eyes, cabbage, even though our dear white cabbage, even red, is useful in that it contains a lot of vitamins: C and P, B1, B2, PP. And also the substance is choline. Vitamin K is also rich in spinach. Especially a lot of vitamin C is contained in sauerkraut - much more than in the same citrus. It is he who helps to eliminate the fragility of blood vessels (due to the fact that they burst, red eyes), improves blood circulation. It is also useful for the formation of collagen, which is necessary for the regeneration of eye cells and blood vessels.

How much you need: at least 150 grams three times a week in any form - soups, salads and just like that.

Carrot - for "twilight" view

If you feel that you have become worse to see in the dark, the bright light hurts your eyes, your eyes get tired, jump up harmful crimson and torment conjunctivitis, then you are seriously missing the main eye vitamin A, or retinol. We need it for the normal operation of the retina, since it is part of the pigment responsible for “processing” light into electrical impulses and transferring them to the brain.

How many should: 150 grams with a spoonful of sour cream or vegetable oil two or three times a week.

COMMENT OF THE OPHTHALMOLOGIST

For treatment you need to eat three kilos of blueberries!

“As far as I know, no serious research has been done on the effect of various products on vision,” said Ophthalmologist Alexandra Tur. - And those "studies" on 25 - 50 people, which are carried out by various British and American scientists, should not be taken seriously. But in any case, a variety of foods, especially those that contain antioxidants (the same fatty fish, dark chocolate and even red wine), have a good effect on the state of the retina. After all, eye disease for the most part has a dystrophic character, that is, it is associated with general aging, depletion of the body, and thinning of blood vessels. And the more diverse the food, the more it is filled with vitamins, the better.

But do not think that a couple of tablespoons of blueberries a day will immediately help your eyes. For therapeutic purposes, it should be eaten on average three kilograms every day for a month! These are the doses of beneficial blueberry substances found in medicinal preparations. The same goes for grapefruit. But the use of natural products is that it is impossible to overfill the body with vitamins, they are absorbed in the right quantities.
