Natural Products to Support Eye Health

There are countless reasons why our eye health isn’t as good as it could be. We’re in a bit of a bind: we need to look at electronic screens all day to work, eating healthy isn’t as easy as ordering pizza, and plenty of us are experiencing losses in our ability to see as we grow older. Vision correction technology is better than ever, but it’s important not to forget about supporting the natural health of our eyes as well. That can be as simple as taking some natural supplements to support your eyes in their natural functions – a task easy enough for even the biggest busybodies among us.

The perfect storm

The average adult now spends 9.5 hours a day looking at electronic screens – that whole time, high-intensity blue light is shining directly into your eyes, causing oxidative damage and inflammation. That level of stress on the eyes requires a healthy diet to provide antioxidants, essential minerals and anti-inflammatories to protect against the damage, but our processed diets provide none of the sort – and the blood sugar spikes they cause even damage blood vessels in the eye. Meanwhile, we’re living longer than ever, and our eyes weren’t necessarily meant to last that long – it’s the perfect storm of eye health problems.

Protect against the blue light

We’re likely to keep using screens for work and pleasure – it’s the way things are, and the way things will continue to be. The thing is, our wonderful bodies devised a defense – a kind of screen that forms across the macula, the most sensitive part of the eye. It’s made of several compounds we normally get from food, including lutein and zeaxanthin. You can get these from your diet, particularly in egg yolks and leafy greens, or from supplements like astaxanthin which has the added benefit of being one of the most powerful antioxidants we know of, a total plus considering the oxidative stress blue light causes.

Provide all-around support

The eyes take a lot of different punches – oxidative damage, inflammation and blood vessel damage, just to name a few. To combat all of these threats to your eye health, you need plenty of antioxidants to help repair all of the damage that free radicals cause. You could also do with healthy doses of carotenoids, a macular pigment that protects the millions of photoreceptor cells of the central retina, which helps reduce oxidative stress. Vitamin C is also a great supporter of healthy tissue and immune support here.

For all of these natural supports and more, try O2B’s ProVision, a powerful antioxidant complex that protects against age-related eye and visual disorders as well as supports the macular and retinal functions of the eyes.
