Important Vitamins For Eye Health

The eye and very important vitamins for the eye and not just vitamins but a mineral and a phytonutrient the first thing you need to understand is that a lot of these problems with the eye whether it’s macular degeneration or retinopathy –vs or cataracts or glaucoma. They usually stem or get triggered from oxidation high levels of oxidation usually from too much blood sugar. That’s why diabetics you see so many problems at the eye or high levels of insulin. Other things in the diet can affect the eye but the big thing is the sugar. High sugar also will deplete you of certain nutrients as well but these nutrients I want to mention act as antioxidants so if you have enough of these nutrients in your body. It will reduce the complications from diabetes or high sugar or whatever you have they basically have protective properties. The most important is you’re gonna have a lot of eye problems. Vitamin A helps you see in the dark and it can reduce night blindness and prevent it basically and people that can’t see when they’re driving at night without vitamin A your tear ducts and your mucous membranes around the eye drive right up so you get dry eye. There’s so many people like carrying around this little solution to help lubricate the eye when they need vitamin A and also make note that you might need more bile salts if there’s a gallbladder problem or a liver problem because you need that to help you absorb vitamin A without vitamin A you tend to get cataracts and macular degeneration the macula is the back part of the eye alright then we get vitamin b1 which gets depleted when you’re diabetic when you eat high carbohydrate diets when you eat refined foods and also if you’re taking metformin by the way that will deplete b1 without b1 your risk of getting cataracts go way up and also your risk for getting retinopathy problems with the retina because b1 is involved in keeping the outer holding of your nerves intact that myelin sheath so if you have any type of peripheral neuropathy problems because you’re diabetic you want to take b1 but you want to take it in a fat soluble form as in benfotiamine okay then float Amin is also good to penetrate the fat layers of the eye and even the brain so it’s really good for something like this if you catch it in time all right b3 is good for a good kamma and all the B vitamins that I’m going to talk about you can take nutritional yeast to get your B violence it’s a good source but glaucoma is high pressure in the eye okay then we have zinc zinc is a very powerful antioxidant it’s a trace mineral over two billion people on this planet are deficient in zinc it’s a very common deficiency also in in agriculture as well so it’s one of the most common but zinc allows vitamin A to work okay I can do its job without zinc. Vitamin A has a hard time creating its functions or another point is that your eye is loaded with zinc okay because zinc acts as a cofactor or a helper in all these different enzymes over a thousand different enzymes dealing with proteins without zinc you get an increased risk of getting a cataract and macular degeneration other than that you’re perfectly fine okay then we get carotenoids which is not a vitamin it’s a final nutrient it’s an additional thing in plants and other foods that give you health benefits like lutein Z and thin you may have heard about eating tomatoes for example as high in lutein or kale or any type of leafy greens because these carotenoids actually help prevent macular degeneration and a lot of other things. Okay vitamin D actually can help reduce the risk for cataracts it’s a fat type of vitamin this is a fat soluble vitamin vitamin E is also involved but I didn’t want to mention that because there’s not a tremendous amount of research on the eye with vitamin E maybe a little bit here and there but vitamin E is a very powerful antioxidant also so is vitamin C from food very important but again I didn’t want to put that because I didn’t find a lot of research on that alright vitamin b2 deficiencies can increase your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration as well and vitamin b2 is a antioxidant for the nervous system.
