Product Description

Diet can have a large impact on visual health, especially with regard to age-related sight problems such as macular degeneration. Our carefully-researched Healthy Vision Get Well Basket includes powerful dietary weapons to keep your eyes healthy.

Antioxidants help protect against macular degeneration by filtering out harmful UV rays and by keeping free radicals from damaging the retina. In particular, a diet rich in flavonoids (such as quercetin and anthocyanins), beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, lycopene, lutein, and zeaxanthin may help ward off macular degeneration. Zinc is important as well, because of the physiologic role it plays in the retina.

Anthocyanins found in cherries, blueberries, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries, red cabbage, radishes, and pomegranates help prevent free radical damage and bolster collagen structure in the retina. Flavonoids found in broccoli, blueberries, chocolate, limes, lemons, oranges, apples, white grapefruit, carrots, onions, tomatoes, pomegranates, and soybeans may enhance blood flow to the retina while fighting free radical damage.

Zinc, found in barley, chicken, oysters, crab, beef, lamb, wheat, and turkey, plays a critical role in retina function and may even slow the progression of macular degeneration.

Our Healthy Vision Get Well Basket makes a great gift for someone with cataracts, macular degeneration, or anyone who just wants to prevent visual problems.
