Your eyes are foundational to your quality of life. In short, they are precious. The only time you don’t depend on them is when you’re sleeping, which means they have an impact on every waking moment. Some of us need eyewear and some of us don’t, but a lot of us fail to give our eyes the care they actually need. As the years go by and our eyes rack up sunsets, open roads, computer screens, and the faces of loved ones, they start to wear out.
What do we mean by “wear out”? Well, eyes can wear out in many ways, but the most common way they decline happens in their macular pigment.
- Macular pigment is a protective layer of carotenoids, including Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Meso-zeaxanthin.
- Together, these carotenoids filter out harsh blue light and deliver antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection.
- When the pigment starts to break down, it becomes a risk factor in eye diseases like macular degeneration, an eye disease that is practically an epidemic at this point.
Can we help our macular pigment stay strong and protected? Well, here’s the thing: your eyes pull natural protection for your retinas from your diet. Unfortunately, our modern diets and lifestyles don’t provide nearly enough carotenoids to maintain healthy macular pigment levels. We’re basically starving our macular pigment and suffering the results. We end up having surgery and taking other drastic measures to fix a problem we created for ourselves! If we can provide our bodies with the tools they need to maintain themselves, why wouldn’t we? The answer is that most people don’t know they’re failing to nourish their eyes until it’s too late. This doesn’t have to be you!
