Ginger-Peach-Green NutraSmoothie is high in antioxidants

ANTIOXIDANTS AND AGING

By their very design and function, eyes are meant to be exposed to light. As we age, years of oxidative stress combine with genetics, environment, lifestyle and more to increase the risk of complications to eyesight and healthy vision. One way to help keep our eyes healthy is through a diet rich in essential eye nutrients and antioxidants from fruits and vegetables. The Ginger-Peach-Green Nutra Smoothie delivers.

Green leafy vegetables are among the highest nutritional sources of the critical carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. Both of these carotenoids are found in the macula, a round area at the back of the eyeball that helps your brain process images crisply. If there is damage to the macula, some of the details in crisp vision are lost.

ANTIOXIDANTS: Antioxidants are substances that neutralize or remove free radicals in
cells. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body’s cells. So a diet rich in antioxidants can lower oxidative stress.
