Vitamins nourish every part of us, including our eyes. Committed to healthy lashes and healthy bodies, we dug deep and found foods that can improve your overall eye health, and help you get the gorgeous glow you want.
Vitamin A is a big one. Since childhood, we’ve been told that eating carrots gives us healthy eyes, but have you ever thought about why?
Carrots are full of vitamin A, which is super good for your eyes. Not only does vitamin A prevent dry eyes and protect them from infection, it helps maintain a healthy cornea and prevents cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma. According to bembu.com, one medium carrot contains 200% of the average person’s vitamin A needs in a day. One medium carrot a day – that’s easy!
There’s more good news. According to top10homeremedies.com, the best super foods for your eyes are ones that contain vitamin A, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, carotenoids, omega-3 fatty acids, minerals, and antioxidants. So stock up on spinach, blueberries, strawberries, walnuts, avocados, peppers, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and salmon.
Iceberg lettuce often gets left out of the healthy greens group. It’s often overshadowed by the darker leafy greens like spinach and kale, however it actually contains a lot of vitamin A! So if you’re tired of spinach salads, don’t feel bad about switching things up.
You can also spice up dishes with paprika! One tablespoon equals 69% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin A, and it’s also a source of Vitamin C, potassium, and calcium. Small amounts of these vitamin rich foods can improve your overall eye health. Combine these with natural, plant-based Nuvalash serum and you’ll have gorgeous eyes, inside and out.
