NUTRITION FOR EYE HEALTH

As discussed in my upcoming segment on the cable show  ” Seniors on the Move”, the following vitamins and supplements are important for eye health:

Vitamin A ( carrots, butternut squash), Vitamin C ( kale, strawberries, orange, broccoli), Vitamin E ( nuts: almonds, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds), Betacarotene (carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes), and zinc ( oysters, wheat, nuts), Bioflavonoids ( cherries, grapes, plums)

Lutein & Zeaxanthin (kale, spinach, squash, sweet potatoes, peaches) & Omega 3 fatty acids ( fatty fish: tuna, salmon, fax seed oil, walnuts),

Eating foods with Lower Glycemic Index ( whole grains, lentils, Yams)

In general, eat 5-9 servings of vegetables or fruits per day, fatty fish 2 times per week, and 3 servings of whole grains per day, avoid processed, sugary, or fried foods.  Add a supplement if you want an insurance policy that you are getting enough nutrients or if you already have signs of macular degeneration.
