Foods containing lutein and zeaxanthin are good for vision. These are found in eggs yolk, leafy green vegetables and may protect against age-related macular degeneration (AMD)which is the most common cause of weak sight or blindness among the elderly. The nutrients protect against the condition by helping to ward off potentially damaging effects to the center of your eye’s retina.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids which are responsible for the yellow color in many fruit and vegetables. Consuming foods rich in these nutrients can reduce your risk of AMD.
Spinach, kale, turnip greens, lettuce, broccoli, zucchini, green peas, spinach, kiwifruit, grapes, orange juice and brussels sprouts are all rich in these nutrients.
Add olive oil or butter when eating these vegetables for the lutein to be absorbed by your body. Maize is the vegetable with the highest level of lutein, and orange pepper is the vegetable with the highest amount of zeaxanthin.
