Americans spend more than $139 Billion every year on eye treatments. That number is increasing as our population is now diagnosed with more preventable, diet-related vision loss than ever before.
One of the leading causes of vision loss is age-related macular degeneration, which is largely influenced by lifestyle choices, especially diet.
When it comes to eye health and nutrition, people think carrots, it’s what most of us were told would keep our eyes healthy.
Carrots and colorful vegetables are indeed beneficial for eye health, but the truth is that the eye needs protein too, and one of the best choices for a protein-rich food that contains the vital nutrients to support your eye health is 100% grass-fed organ meat.
100% grass-fed beef liver is a perfect example of a protein that can improve your eye health.
A serving of grass-fed beef liver contains only about 5% of your RDA for saturated fat, is low in sodium, and abundant in vitamins, minerals, proteins, and essential amino acids, including:
Beef liver is a great source of Vitamin A, also called retinol, it is a component of the protein rhodopsin, which allows the eye to see in low-light conditions and can improve night vision. Vitamin A also reduces the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration and is especially powerful when combined with Vitamins C, E, Zinc, and Copper.
US Wellness 100% grass-fed organ meats, lamb, and beef are a great source of Zinc. Zinc helps the body absorb vitamin A and protects the retina, lowering the risk of developing macular degeneration and cataracts. Low levels of Zinc increase your risk of suffering from a retinal detachment.
100% Grass-fed beef and lamb are rich in Selenium. Selenium protects the lens of the eye and prevents age-related cataracts.
Studies show that Selenium and Zinc may even prevent glaucoma, which causes increased eye pressure resulting in optic nerve damage and blindness. Selenium is increasingly recommended by physicians for improving the symptoms of dry eye syndrome.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega- 3 Fatty Acids support brain and eye health. Diets rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to provide long-term benefits for some chronic eye conditions, including dry eye disease and age-related macular degeneration.
A deficiency of Vitamin B12 can cause blurred vision and damage the eye’s optic nerve that sends the signals from your brain to your eye.
