What products improve vision?

Red, yellow and green vegetative food not only pleases us with its colorfulness, but is also able to improve the state of our vision, thanks to the presence of special substances in it - carotenoids.

Red, yellow and green vegetative food not only pleases us with its colorfulness, but is also able to improve the state of our vision, thanks to the presence of special substances in it - carotenoids.

Tips for eating carrots to improve vision really have a scientific basis. It is all about the antioxidants found in plants - carotenoids, which are important components of the yellow spot of the retina.

In nature, there are several hundred carotenoids, but in the yellow spot of man there are only two pigments - lutein and zeaxanthin. These pigments in the yellow spot play a protective function. On the one hand, they cause filtering from damaging blue frequencies of light, and on the other hand, being antioxidants, they reduce the activity of oxidative processes.

Yellow spot can improve the optical quality of light and improve color vision. A high concentration of pigments in the macula is inversely proportional to the susceptibility to some age-related eye diseases: macular degeneration or cataracts.

The level of pigments in the yellow spot is so decisive that according to the concentration of carotenoids in the blood, we can talk about the health of eye health.

The content of carotenoids in humans can vary by several times. This is due to genetic characteristics, gender, age and diet. If genetics, age and gender are quite difficult to influence, then the diet will simply have nowhere to go.

Enough to increase the daily intake of greens, red, orange and yellow vegetables. Proper diet leads to the fact that the levels of lutein and zeaxanthin already at 40-50 days reach a maximum.

In order not to become a patient of an ophthalmologist before time, you need to take care of your eyes. Do not forget to include more often in the diet:

Carrot. It is a rich source of beta-carotene and vitamin A, which strengthens eyesight and helps prevent the appearance of myopia.

Blueberries Both fresh and dry blueberries enhance visual acuity, relieve fatigue from the eyes and help to see better in the twilight. Even during the Second World War, British pilots ate blueberries or blueberry jam before each night flight, believing that this would help them see better enemy planes in the dark. The healing properties of blueberries are explained by the presence of bioflavonoids - substances that contribute to the nutrition and renewal of the cells of the retina.

Red sweet pepper and spinach. They have a lot of lutein, which, like sunglasses, protects the retina and prevents the cells of the eye from aging. However, during heat treatment, lutein is destroyed, so these foods need to be eaten raw.

Corn, oranges, mango and peaches. These products are rich in zeaxanthin, which, like lutein, prevents the destruction of the retina and the clouding of the lens.

Fish It contains a lot of taurine and beneficial fatty acids, which prevent excessive dryness of the eyes, and vitamin E, which is necessary to protect the eyes from various harmful factors and aging.

Rosehip is a recognized prophylactic agent for retinal dystrophy.

Citruses. Vitamin C is necessary to protect the eyes from infections, as well as to prevent age-related diseases.
