Luscious eyelashes and great eyebrows mean nothing if you have dull eyes. If you want to make your eyes sparkle with health and help improve your eyesight naturally, you can look after them from within, with these top five super nutrients for eye health.

Vitamin A for your Eyes

Do you know how your Mom told you that if you ate all your carrots, you would be able to see in the dark? She might not have been too far from telling the truth! Fruits and vegetables with high vitamin A content are fantastic for your eye health. To make the most of this vitamin, up to your intake of carrots, peaches, papaya, and mangoes.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C has a reputation for being a wonderful vitamin, and there is a science to suggest that your eyes can benefit from a good supply of it as well as the rest of you. Add plenty of Vitamin C-rich foods, including oranges, grapefruits, and strawberries, to your diet, and you’ll help to protect your eyes from cell damage.

Vitamin E for your Eyes

Get this essential vitamin for eye health from sunflower seeds, wheat germ, hazelnuts, peanut butter, and almonds. Just a handful of almonds will provide half of your daily dose.

Antioxidants are Also Good for the Eyes

Look for delicious leafy greens like kale, spinach, collards, and romaine lettuce – these are all fantastic sources of lutein and zeaxanthin, the antioxidants responsible for reducing your risk of macular degeneration and cataracts.

Zinc

Try eating more sesame seeds/tahini, hemp seeds, cashew nuts and pine nuts, shiitake mushrooms, and avocados for a good intake of protective zinc.
