ensure healthy eyes!
Our eyes are our
most important sensory organ. Approximately 80% of sensory perceptions
are done through our eyes. Therefore, it is important to protect the
health of the eyes
preventively. Something like this is called prophylaxis.
a behavior which makes sure that health is maintained.
eyes are set up like a camera. Just like a camera, they have a lens and
a light-sensitive layer where the image is produced. These
light-sensitive layer is
called the retina. A certain part of the retina is particularly
important for seeing. This part is called the macula. Macula is Latin
means spot. The macula is the part of the retina with the highest
resolution of the image. In this spot the "pixels of the image are the
densest. This part is important for the ability to read for example
this text. If
this part of the eye does not work correctly, then the best
glasses are not usefull. Therefore it is important that we care for it,
deliver our eyes what they need in order to be able to work well,
if we want to
But what does the macula need to do a good job for
She needs special vitamins and micro-nutrients in a balanced diet, or
added as a dietary supplement medication, if you want to be sure ,
that you have enough of them to save the health of your eyes.
What are these micro-nutrients and vitamins and where are they coming
The most important vitamin required by the macula is vitamin C. It
against infectious diseases and so called oxidative stress by free
radicals. Oxidative stress is a chemical thing, unrelated to the stress
someone may feel in a stressing situation. It is a chemical attack
process of the sensory cells in the eye. Free radicals are also
not members of a political party, but a chemical structure, with
great chemical force, which attack the macula chemicaly.
We will find
the means of protection against such attacks, the vitamin C, in
higher concentrations in oranges, lemons, peppers or in the German
Vitamin E is the next important vitamin, with health benefits for the
eyes. Vitamin E helps to prevent inflammation. It is, inter alia,
in wheat germ oil, almonds, nuts and whole grain products.
The trace elements zinc, copper and selenium improve the effectiveness
of our immune system and so protect our eyes. These three trace
elements are found in tomatoes, legumes, fish, liver, egg yolks and
whole grain products.
Omega 3 fatty acids are important
for the nervous system. As our eyes are part of the nervous system, it
important that we have these Omega 3 fatty acids in sufficient quantity
in ourselves, in order to protect our eyes.
Docosa-hexan-acid (DHA), is
the primary fatty acid in light sensory cells in the retina. By this
cells the light
is converted into nerve impulses.
Omega 3 fatty acids are föund in fish form the ocean like salmon
The phrase "carrots are good for the eyes" is a phrase in Germany which
mothers tell their children. Is this all right?
Carrots contain carotenoids. These carotenoids, cannot be produced by
the body. They are used in the macula and cause the yellow color of
the macula. Therefore, the macula, is the yellow spot of the eye. The
two Carotioides Lutein and Zeaxanthin are not only contained in carrots
but also in spinach, broccoli and kale and in salad, corn and zucchini.
It is important that our body can absorb, the carotenoids, which we
offered him from the food. The best we can do for the body is,
to eat vegetables that are not stewed for a too long time. (stewed
means slightly cooked
with a little water until it is a little hard and not muddy).
Who wants to go quite sure that he has absorbed a sufficient amount of
and micro nutrients for the eyes needs can take food supplements,
which should specifically be designed for this purpose.
