Today I want to cover the best foods for the eyes. Your eyes are highly complex, and it’s important to support them to help avoid vision problems and other issues.
The most important nutrient for the eyes is DHA, which is an omega-3 fatty acid.
DHA has many important functions and protects against macular degeneration and inflammation. It also inhibits the formation of extra blood vessels in the eyes that could affect vision. DHA is destroyed by blue light, UV light, and omega-6 fatty acids.
Carotenoids are also very protective for the eyes, specifically lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin.
The best foods to support the eyes:
• Oily cold-water fish (bluefin tuna, salmon, herring, cod liver, cod liver oil, oysters, and sardines)
• Grass-fed beef
• Pasture-raised, organic egg yolks
• Chia seeds
• Flax seeds
• Dark leafy green vegetables
It’s also crucial to avoid omega-6 fatty acids and sugar to support healthy eyes.
