A vitamin boost for your eyes
Here's how to give your eyes a healthy jumpstart.
A balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain and milk products as well as meat, poultry and fish ensures proper health for you and your eyes. For example, provitamin A can be obtained from carrots, apricots and broccoli. You should protect your body against "free radicals“ with vitamins C and E. You will find these vitamins not only in citrus fruits, kiwis and bell peppers, but also in vegetable oils and nuts.
Refrain from eating empty calories like products made with white flour and meals that are high in fat. Avoid nicotine – your eyes will thank you. Two to three litres of water or unsweetened tea a day will not only keep your skin free from wrinkles longer, but will also prevent dry eyes!
