Published July 10, 2013 by jindanee

We all know that certain foods and minerals are great for our bodies in various ways. Here we will briefly discuss a few of the foods that can help your eyes. To begin with, I will tell you that your mom was right: eatingcarrots is really the best thing for your eyes. They are full of beta carotene, which as an antioxidant can reduce the chances of cataracts and eye degeneration. Another great mineral is Vitamin C, which we find in bell peppers, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli. Turkey and, yes, ostrich meat are both great for the eyes as they are chock full of zinc. This is key for retinal health. Another great vegetable full of beta carotene are delicious sweet potatoes. One food that is full of a ton of eye healthy minerals is spinach: a total of 4! Most of these foods are found in a good Thanksgiving dinner, but also should be eaten on a regular basis, especially if there is a family history of cataracts or other eye problems. These foods are so versatile that there is really no reason not to add them to your diet.
