Eye health and good nutrition are clearly linked. For example, lutein and zeaxanthin are commonly found in green leafy vegetables, and support your eye health. Lutein and zeaxanthin protect the retina from harmful blue light. By reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage, lutein and zeaxanthin help prevent macular degeneration of the eye.*
You can source lutein and zeaxanthin from spinach, kale, broccoli, collards, Swiss chard, radicchio, turnip greens, corn, green beans, peas, eggs, and oranges. When taken as a supplement, it is recommended that you take 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin per day.
