Did You Know: Leafy Greens


Did you know leafy green vegetables are the perfect Eyefood?
  • They contain high amounts of most eye nutrients. Lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc and fiber.




Leafy green vegetables are the gold medalists of Eyefoods as they contain most of the essential nutrients necessary for healthy eyes.

When you eat cooked leafy green vegetables your body absorbs more lutein and zeaxanthin and when you eat raw leafy green vegetables your body absorbs more vitamin C.

Diets rich in leafy green vegetables preserve eye health and also may decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and many types of cancer.


Eyefoods Tip: Lutein and Zeaxanthin are fat soluble antioxidants and need fat to be transported in the body. Add health fats such as olive oil or avocado to your leafy greens for better absorption of lutein.

  2. Good sharing, The most recognized method for measuring a substance’s antioxidant capacity is to test its Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity (ORAC) value. Acai, Maqui and Mangosteen are 3 of the most powerful super berries and fruits with their staggering ORAC levels. I recommended Nn Suprt Berries Plus as ORAC supplementary product. Each bottle of Nn Suprt Berries Plus is guaranteed to have a minimum ORAC value of 37,500. Three batches recently tested by Brunswick Labs in MA reflected astounding high ORAC values of 3,872 per 1 oz serving, which is over 6 times that of pomegranate juice! Read more at:
