Can I get enough nutrients from my diet to benefit my eye health?
A balanced diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables is the best way to obtain a broad spectrum of nutrients. But because we live the real world, this isn't always possible. We skip meals, lead stressful lives, and eat on the run; non of which is helpful to either digestion or the absorption of nutrients. It's also very difficult to acquire from diet alone the quantities of specific vitamins and nutrients shown to be beneficial to eye health. Therefore, it's often wise to supplement the diet with vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional substances in an intelligently designed program.
What is the best way to support & protect my vision?
A good way to protect vision is to regularly wear sunglasses, even on cloudy days. A good way to support vision is to supplement your diet with a good eye formula, such as Able Eyes, which supplies substantial amounts of DHA and Lutein and other nutrients to promote eye health. Macular Pigment Density is associated with healthy retinas, Able Eyes has both DHA and Lutein which together have been found to increase macular pigment density greater than either of these nutrients.
I wear contact lenses. Should I take Able Eyes?
People in high school, of working age, using computers, exposed to the sun, who exercise, who read a lot and are seniors...many of us can benefit from the eye-supporting nutrients found in Able Eyes. This is true even if you wear glasses, contact lenses or have had LASIK.
I have heard a lot about lutein lately. What is lutein and why is it good for me?
Lutein is an essential member of the carotenoid family of nutrients derived from plants. It is essential because the human body does not produce it and we must rely on our food supply for it. The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are found in high concentrations in and around the macula. It acts primarily in two ways: To filter light to protect the eyes from the effects of the sun and as an antioxidant to protect the eyes from the effects of free radicals and aging. Lutein is the most abundant carotenoid in all ocular tissues. Most people think that carrots with beta-carotene are most important to vision, but actually lutein found in spinach is critical for the protection of macular function.
Is there anything I can do to improve my night vision?
As we age, many of us notice a change in night vision adaptation. Some researchers say we lost 10% of our rate of dark adaptation ever decade. There are three key principles behind my recommendations to support night vision. One is to strengthen cell membranes, two is to improve circulation to the eye and, finally, three is to protect the eye from damage caused by free radicals. Able Eyes was created with these principles in mind. The five key supplements for night vision are DHA, vitamin A, lutein, bilberry, and zinc. All are included in Able Eyes, along with other important vitamins, minerals, and bioflavonoids critical for eye health and nutrition.
How can I support the health of my retina?
The retina is the layer that lines the inside of the eye. The macula, which resides in the center of the retina, is responsible for our detailed vision. To protect these delicate instruments, you can follow the general suggestions listed above to support overall eye health. In addition, because the macula is so responsive to free-radical-fighting antioxidant nutrients, nutrition is a big key to helping promote retinal health. Make sure that you eat plenty of lutein-rich vegetables such as spinach and kale, or take a lutein supplement daily at mealtime. Also be sure to supply your body with the other nutrients you need such as DHA from fish oils and bioflavonoids from citrus.
