Studies Indicate Good Nutrition Linked to Eye Health
Date:6/29/2009

TORRANCE, Calif., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Studies have determined certain nutrients have positive effects on eye health. The research focus is on Vitamins C and E, found in high levels in the eye lens; lutein and zeaxanthin, which are concentrated in the retina; and beta-carotene (which converts to Vitamin A), another strong antioxidant.

There are numerous food sources for antioxidants, including citrus fruits for Vitamin C, nuts and seeds for Vitamin E, and carrots and sweet potatoes for beta-carotene. Foods high in lutein and zeaxanthin have yellow or green pigments, such as dark-green leafy vegetables and corn.

"No matter what your age, it's never too soon to start taking proactive measures in the area of nutrition to help maintain good eyesight for life," says Warren Harvard Low, O.D.

A superfood high in Vitamins C, E, beta-carotene, and lutein is Chlorella, a single-cell, fresh water green alga.

Sun Chlorella helps to detoxify and rejuvenate the body. It contains more protein and chlorophyll than any other plant; includes all the essential amino acids; and is high in dietary fiber, nucleic acids, minerals, and vitamins (incl
