7 Tips on How You Can Support Your Eyesight*
You may go to the gym regularly, eat a healthy diet, and get enough sleep, but are you looking out for your eyes? Good eye health is crucial to our overall well-being. Almost 80 percent of the information our brain receives comes through our eyesight. If we don’t look after our eyes, our vision can degrade as we become older.
However, maintaining good eyesight means more than just eating your carrots!* If you’d like to know exactly what to do to keep your eyesight sharp, then keep reading for our top tips on how to support your eyesight!*
- Stick to an Exercise Routine
The first way to promote good eye health is to try and stay in shape. A recent study found that exercise also helps to support eye health.* (1) Having a good exercise routine can help you to maintain a healthy weight and support the already normal flow of blood and oxygen to your eyes.*
The Orphic Nutrition Nitric Oxide/L-Arginine Supplements and Conjugated Linoleic Acid supplements can help you to get the most out of your workouts. These two supplements already support normal blood flow and oxygenation, and also support muscle health.* If you’re a keen workout warrior, then give our supplements a try!
- Eat a Healthy Diet
A healthy, balanced diet will work wonders for your overall general health, but it will also help keep your eyesight sharp.* Making sure you get good nutrition can ward off age-related eye diseases and support your eyesight as you get older.* (2) Always make sure you eat plenty of fish, leafy greens, and yes, carrots really do help your vision!* (3)
- Get Enough Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids all work to help our bodies stay strong and they also provide much-needed support for our eyesight.* (4) If you are concerned that you are not getting enough vitamins and minerals in your diet, you can support your health with Omega 3 Fish Oil Capsules, Vitamin C Gummies, Multivitamin Gummies for Adults, and Kids Multivitamin Gummies.*
- Maintain a Good Sleep Schedule
Sleep allows our bodies and minds to recharge and recuperate. If you are not getting enough quality sleep, your eyes can feel dry and gritty. A good sleep pattern will keep your eyes bright and your mind alert and focused.* (5)
For better sleep, it’s a good idea to stick to the same bedtime hour so your body can get into a pattern. Avoid using your phone or laptop in bed just before you go to sleep since the blue light emitted by these devices can disturb natural sleep patterns.*
If you find it hard to wind down at night, try incorporating some breathing and meditation exercises into your nightly routine. Drinking herbal teas just before bedtime is another way to get your body ready for sleep. You can also support your sleep schedule with Organic Ashwagandha Capsules.* Ashwagandha is a natural plant extract that has been shown to support restful sleep.* (6)
- Protect Your Eyes
Wearing sunglasses does more than just make you look cool! Prolonged exposure to the sun can seriously harm our eyes, so a good pair of shades is essential for ongoing eye health.
Protective eyewear is also a must if you are regularly involved in any activity that could damage your eyes. This includes work activities, sports, and even cleaning. Chemicals, shards of wood, metal, or glass, and sporting injuries can damage our eyes and impact our long-term vision.*
- Get Your Eyes Tested Regularly
You may get a check-up from your doctor every month, and you might see your dentist regularly, but when was the last time you had your eyes tested? Having eye examinations on a regular basis can ensure that any potential problems are identified early so your eyes stay in top condition.
- Watch Your Overall Health
Apart from the above, we also need to keep a close watch on our overall health. Cutting back on alcohol, sugary sweets, and carbonated drinks can be hugely beneficial to our general well-being.* If you are a smoker, then there has never been a better time to quit than right now! Stopping smoking is the number one best thing you can do to improve your health.* (7)
It’s advisable to always get regular health check-ups from your doctor. Many health problems do not always have obvious symptoms, so seeing your family doctor a few times a year can help you to avoid any nasty surprises.*
And if you feel that you still aren’t doing enough for your body, think about taking a supplement. People of all ages and backgrounds throughout the world use supplements as an easy and convenient way to support their overall health.*
Orphic Nutrition supplements have a range of health-supporting benefits.* Our Glucosamine Chondroitin and Turmeric Curcumin with Bioperine supplements can help to support the body's natural inflammatory response.* Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules are used by many people to support weight loss and also provide great support for cholesterol and blood sugar levels already in the normal range.*
If you’re worried about your vision, following these top tips should help you to protect your eyesight. Hope to see you again soon!
