How nutrients may help your eyes
Americans' diets tend to be deficient in many nutrients shown to support eye health, including Lutein, Zeaxanthin and fatty acids.
Over time, the density of the pigment in the macula area of the eye can deteriorate. NIH's AREDS2 study found supplementing diets with a blend of nutrients, including Lutein and Zeaxanthin, was found to support ocular health.
Age, menopause, computer use, dry air and other environmental factors can decrease tear quality and quantity. This can cause constant irritation and potential scarring of the cornea. Studies indicate nutritional support with a balanced ratio of Omega 3 to Omega-6 fatty acids may help support natural tearing and tear layer.
