Deteriorating vision is a problem that will eventually plague almost all of us – and if you’ve already been living with less than 20/20 you know how big of a problem it can be. You need to have (and keep track of, and keep protected, and clean) eyeglasses, contacts – maybe you’ve even considered to go with the somewhat risky and still quite expensive eye surgeries just to get through the day.
I doesn’t have to be like that anymore.
What if I told you that there are a handful of “superfoods” that you’ve been eating all your life, that if you increased the amount in your daily intake could begin to slow and even reverse any and all eye damage or eye strain that you’re currently dealing with. Imagine if you could get rid of those eye glasses, never again have to struggle putting contacts in your eyes in the morning and taking them out at night, and you could forget completely about going under the laser – this is the reality many people are waking up to when they add more of these superfoods into their diets!
How to improve your eyesight – the superfood secret
There are several different foods and supplements that you’ve probably already come across in your day to day life that you have no idea could boost your vision and eye health through the roof. The reason that these pleasant effects have remained mostly a secret is because modern people have come to be so accustomed to just throwing on some glasses or popping in contacts – and don’t even get me started on the staggering rate of people who go under the laser each and every year. And that’s where all the money is – in telling people that they need to buy expensive glasses, to keep ordering throw away contact lenses, to go and get the costly surgery – if people knew that could build up their vision through diet they’d be out of business.
Use these secrets and don’t be surprised at the rate at which your vision begins to repair itself. Without further ado, here are some of the sneaky little foods that can help you improve your eyesight.
Green Leafy Veggies
While most everyone was told at one time or another in their childhood that they should eat carrots to help their eyesight (and this old wives tale holds true!), nobody said anything about the other power veggie sitting on the plate – the green leafy ones. Green leafy vegetables are powerful eye saving foods, and are chock full of antioxidants called lutein and zeaxanthrin – two powerful compounds that protect the eyes from losing their power.
Eggs are powerful, powerful eye protecting foods – and best of all are a really cheap and delicious way to get the compounds you need to do so. Eggs can be prepared any way you like them best, and are packed with a compound called lutein, zinc minerals, Vitamin B, and all kinds of essential fatty acids. These are powerhouses when it comes to vision health.
Yes, you read that correctly – eating more and more dark chocolate actually has an impressive result for keeping your eyes as healthy as possible. Dark chocoloate has a lot of health benefits, somewhat surprisingly, and is great for the eyes because it helps protect the cornea and lens, as well as make certain that all of the essential blood vessels stay strong and healthy. While just about any dark chocolate will produce incredible results, look for one that has 60% cacao or more for the absolute best results!
