Smoothies are popular liquid meals that will boost your energy as well as benefit your eye health. There are specific fruit and vegetable eye foods that you should look at consuming on a regular basis and perhaps make them a part of your daily meal plan.
Scientific research has shown that lutein, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D and zinc all play an important role in promoting eye health and can help decrease the risk of certain eye diseases. Smoothies are a great way of providing a filling nutritional liquid meal at any time of the day. If you have an aversion to raw fruit and vegetables, perhaps try blending them together to create a smoothie.
Most of the smoothies for healthy eyes will come out green. Don’t be put off by the color. The green, which is chlorophyll, is also great for the blood and also very beneficial for glowing skin, hair and eyes.

Leafy greens provide nutrients to all the vital organs of the body. A sensible vitamin packed diet will definitely provide clarity of vision.
Many people believe they do have a healthy diet, but please bear in mind that, over the course of time, vitamins will deplete from your body and you will need to rebuild your supply.
Research indicates that 25 per cent of the nutrients we consume flow directly through our bodies to support our blood vessels and our vision system.
