The Best Supplements For Eye Health
Dr. Al Sears is getting a little older himself! With great empathy and also a lot of medical know-how, he has put together the best supplements for eye health.
Some of you have been lucky for decades and have not worn glasses or contact lenses. But there comes a day when the newspaper print – or the on line newsletter – seems fuzzy! This is so taken for granted in our modern culture. We don’t question it, and we head for the nearest optometrist.
And, that is a very good idea, In spite of whatever we decide to do to preserve our vision naturally, we still need to feel secure that we can drive safely at night, and not increase our eye strain through negligence of common sense.
If you feel that you want to do more, and preserve your vision and eye health, try NUTRAVISION.
What Is Bilberry Good For
Bilberry has been known to improve the following conditions:
- Macular degeneration
- Venous insufficiency or damaged vein valves
- Retina damage
- Night vision
- May help prevent glaucoma and cataracts
- Prevents oxidation of LDL, the cholesterol that forms plaque in the arteries
- Diarrhea, by its anti-inflammatory and astringent properties
- Prevent blood platelets from sticking together.
Because of bilberry extract’s good effects on blood sugar, and blood thinning, it can interact with drugs taken for the same purposes.
In supplementation, it is best used as an extract so that the dose can be regulated. Bilberries are similar to blueberries and can be eaten in jam and pies.
As most berries do, bilberries contain Vitamin C and anti-oxidants. It is also called the huckleberry or European Blueberry.
Lycopene For Eye Health
Lycopene is a carotenoid component in foods such as tomatoes, blood oranges, apricots and watermelon. Think red, or dark orange and dark pink. It is associated with macular health, skin health and heart health, like other anti-oxidants.
Eye Vitamins Lutein And Zeaxanthin
“Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids that are critical for optimal ocular health.
Eggs are a great dietary source of lutein. So are mangoes, sweet potatoes, and dark, leafy greens like spinach, kale, collards and Swiss chard.
Zeaxanthin is found in colorful fruits and vegetables like zucchini, squash and kiwi. But one of the best sources is the orange bell pepper.” – Dr. Al Sears in an article published today.
Why Is Vinpotecine In NutraVision?
Vinpotecine (derived from the Periwinkle plant) is considered to be a brain booster. It mainly:
- Increases circulation in the brain
- It increases electrical conductivity in the brain.
Daily users of vinpotecine report better memory, mental clarity, decreased tinnitus, decreased vertigo and better vision. Vinpotecine can be taken as a stand alone supplement.
Gingko Baloba And Increased Blood Flow
The herb gingko baloba dilates blood vessels, enhancing circulation to the eyes, head and brain. The extract of this herb blocks the enzymatic pathway used by sugar to cause cataracts. Gingko has improved vision in some sufferers of glaucoma.
Eyebright has been around, some say, since the 14th C. It’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties make it a good nasal wash too. One noted comment by the herbalist Culpepper about Eyebright Powder is: “if the herb was but as much used as it is neglected, it would half spoil the spectacle maker’s trade” – http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/e/eyebri20.html
Can You Prevent Macular Degeneration
You certainly can! Age related macular degeneration, or AMD, is more prevalent in Caucasians. Foods that prevent macular degeneration are dark, leafy green vegetables and fish.
The macula is the center area of the retina. Once damaged, that interferes with your straight-ahead field of vision. It could be dark or blurry. This will prevent normal functioning in many ways.
Antioxidants like Vitamin A, E, and C help prevent AMD. The minerals Zinc and Copper also are important to eye health.
