Do you know which important vitamin can keep your eyes healthy and protect your vision?

When I was last at the doctors, I mentioned that I might need my eyes tested as I've noticed when I'm looking at my phone I'm doing that whole 'hold it further away, then a bit closer, then further away again' just to try and focus (you know what I'm talking about...).  He just raised his eyebrows and said "it's all part of being 40". Ouch.


But there is a vitamin we can increase to ward off macular degeneration (age related blindness) - phew!


Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin and antioxidant that plays a critical role in maintaining vision, and like all antioxidants, also reduces inflammation.


Additional benefits include:

  • Supporting our immune system

  • Improving wrinkles (yes please) and skin conditions like acne, psoriasis and eczema

  • Reducing cholesterol

  • Preventing urinary stones

  • One of the most important micro-nutrients during pregnancy and breastfeeding for growth and development


So how do we increase our Vitamin A? By including the following foods in our diets: 

  • Butternut pumpkin / squash

  • Sweet potato

  • Carrots

  • Leafy greens (kale, spinach, silver-beet, etc)

  • Broccoli

  • Beef Liver

  • Butter

  • Eggs

  • Tomatoes

  • Herbs, such as basil and paprika


Every small change WILL become the big difference

in your life.

With so much love,​
