Vitality NutraSmoothie Delivers the Nutrients Healthy Eyes Require

Vitality NutraSmoothie

Fruits and vegetables that are naturally colorful not only add flavor and texture to your smoothies, they also deliver nutrients and vitamins that are essential to ocular health. That’s especially important as you age. Aging takes a toll on the body–including on the eyes.

  • Think green, such as dark leafy greens like spinach or kale.
  • Orange additions can be orange peppers or pumpkin.
  • Reds and blues can come from berries or beets.
  • Spices like ginger, turmeric and cinnamon add color and a flavor boost.

These recipes include foods that are dense in nutrients that help strengthen the macula–the part of the eye that helps filter blue light. Some also boost your omega-3 fatty acids, which are important to tear film production and may help avoid dry eye symptoms.

Ingredients you might not eat by themselves–like a handful of spinach or a spoonful of pumpkin–can help you whip up something bright, beautiful and delicious.
