Think about your eyes for a second. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to live life without them? I find it astounding how blind people can successfully go through a day without their vision. I mean, we use our eyes for EVERYTHING. It seems like I need my eyes for my other four senses to function! I have to see to smell, taste, touch, and hear (ok maybe not to hear, but you get the picture). Since our eyes are so important, don’t you think you should do all you can to keep them healthy and working correctly?

Research has identified six essential nutrients your eyes need.  These nutrients can keep your eyes healthy, improve your vision, and reduce the risk of eye disease as you get older. Here are the spectacular six: lutein, zeaxanthin, Omega-3, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc. The first two are crucial; we’ll get to them later. To get your suggested daily intake of 1000 mg/day of Omega-3, eat tuna, salmon, and scallops. For vitamin C (500 mg/day), eat oranges, citrus juices, and citrus fruits. For vitamin E (400mg/day), put nuts, fortified cereals, and sweet potatoes in your diet. And for zinc (25 mg/day), eat red meats, fortified cereals, and milk.

Now let me talk about lutein and zeaxanthin for a minute. These nutrients are naturally deposited as a protective layer in the macula, a small spot in the back of the responsible for central vision and also where the disease macular degeneration occurs. The lutein and zeaxanthin of the macular pigment act as internal sunglasses inside your eyes to protect them from harmful light. To improve ability to react to bright flashes of light or see things against a similar background, you need healthy macular pigment. It is essential for night driving and outdoor sports. To get these two nutrients, eat kale, spinach, collards, corn, green peas, broccoli, green beans, and eggs, but it may be hard to get your daily recommended 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin from diet alone. Supplementation may be necessary.

That’s why we’d like to introduce you to the MaxiVision Whole Body Formula. Not only does it contain an excellent multivitamin, but it provides the largest dosage of absorbable lutein along with the proper formulation of zeaxanthin, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc to effectively protect against and prevent progression of cataracts and macular degeneration.
