9 Superfoods which are good for eye's health

9 Superfoods which are good for eye's health.

1. Brussel Sprout
Brussels sprouts are abundant in zeaxanthin, which helps to boost overall immunity and protect eyes.

2. Chia Seed
Chia seeds are rich sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid with powerful anti-inflammatory effects that may help prevent eye conditions linked to oxidative stress and inflammation.

3. Blueberries
Blueberries are packed with anthocyanins—powerful antioxidants that protect the retina from free radical damage.

4. Chinese wolfberries
Like cassia seeds, Chinese wolfberries are used in TCM to help nourish the liver for better eye health. They are high in lutein and zeaxanthin, which act as antioxidants in the eye to protect and maintain healthy cells.

5. Cassia Seed
Cassia seeds are used as a tonic for the liver, eyes and kidneys in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). An unhealthy liver cannot rid the body of toxins effectively. This leads to more toxins in the bloodstream, causing free radical damage to the eyes. Cassia seeds help neutralize free radicals and protect the liver by boosting the activities of antioxidant enzymes. 

6. Broccoli
Broccoli is a potent source of sulforaphane, a phytochemical with potent antioxidant effects that help protect the retina.

7. Yellow pepper
Yellow pepper is high in nutrients like lutein, beta-carotene and violaxanthin that help improve vision.

8. Grape Seed 
Grape seeds are abundant in oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). These are powerful antioxidants that help strengthen blood vessels and improve blood circulation in the eyes.

9. Carrot
Carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene and lutein for better night vision and to help prevent dry eyes.
