Healthy eyes

Besides improving my eye-sight with a healthy diet and a daily portion of green smoothie I am probably, or should I say definitely, protecting myself from age related eye diseases.

Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) conducted by the National Eye Institute in 2001 and 2005 looked for possible benefits of Nutrition on Macular Degeneration. Results of the these studies showed a halting or slowing of macular degeneration through consumption ofvitamins A,C,E, antioxidants and omega-3 fats.

Most of the nutrients such as omega-3 fats and lutein and zeaxanthin are present in green, leafy vegetables.Simple and delicious way to get all these greens is to make a green smoothie and drink it daily.

Have a long, happy and healthy life.
