We use plant-based products for culinary, cosmetic, and health purposes. Scientists and doctors often talk about how properly selected plants can help us in ailments from the digestive, nervous and cardiovascular systems. As it turns out, the ingredients contained in plants can also have a beneficial effect on eyesight.
Plants are a source of many compounds that can positively affect eyesight, prevent and support the treatment of eye diseases. There are, among others, a source of lutein, which is also one of the main ingredients of dietary supplements that improve eyesight. Green leafy vegetables are the primary source of lutein, but other plants will also help you if you wish to take care of your eyes. Among those that have a beneficial effect on the organ of vision, there are, for example, Japanese ginkgo, horse chestnut fruit, marigold flower, or blueberry.
Below, there is a list of selected plant-derived compounds that may have a beneficial effect on our eyesight.
Vegetables like spinach, kale, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli have a beneficial effect on our eyesight. Unfortunately, many people refuse to eat these veggies. We would like to show you that, if prepared properly, even Brussels sprouts can be delicious. Let’s take a look at what culinary properties these veggies have.
Plants rich in carotenoids, vitamin C, and minerals have a very beneficial effect on eyesight and can protect us against eye diseases. These compounds can be found in many plants that we use in our kitchen every day. Even if we do not like vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, or kale, it is worth looking for original ideas for their preparation. The elderly, who are at risk of eye diseases, should pay special attention to products rich in carotenoids, vitamins, or minerals. However, this does not mean that younger people should forget about them! Plants rich in the ingredients mentioned above are an important element of treatment and the prevention of eye diseases.
