Add These Two Foods to Your Diet for Healthy Vision
Let’s talk about eyesight for a minute, specifically, macular degeneration. This condition can creep up on you as your eyes age. What happens, in a nutshell, is that your macula—the part of your eye that helps you see clear images in your central vision—is slowly destroyed. The risk for macular degeneration increases the older you get. Sometimes the disease progresses slowly, and sometimes it progresses faster, and causes vision loss in one or both eyes.
So here’s an idea about how to keep this eye disease from potentially threatening your eyesight: boost your omega-3 levels and your beta-carotene levels. How does this combination of two healing nutrients protect you against macular degeneration? For the answer to that, let’s turn to some evidence from a clinical trial conducted at the Centre for Vision Research at Westmead Hospital in Australia.
