Keeping an eye on your eye health

It’s not always easy to pack your diet with body-boosting vitamins and minerals throughout the day, so multi-vitamin supplements can help give your brain, eyes and body the nutrition it needs. Healthy eyes rely on a number of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to stay healthy.

Vitamin A

This helps keep the cornea (the clear front part of the eye that acts as a barrier against dirt, germs and other particles) clear. High levels of Vitamin A can also reduce risks of cataracts and macular degeneration. The nutrient can also aid in seeing in low lighting conditions.

Vitamin E 

Helps defend against oxidative stress when there’s an imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals. This can be naturally found in foods such as nuts, salmon, avocado, nuts and seeds.

Vitamin C 

is a strong antioxidant that produces collagen and it’s also been suggested it may reduce the risk of cataracts. Citrus and tropical fruits are rich in Vitamin C, as are vegetables like broccoli and kale.

Vitamin B

Vitamins B6, B9, and B12 lower the levels of homocysteine, a protein that causes inflammation and an increased risk of age-related macular degeneration.

Riboflavin otherwise known as Vitamin B2, reduces oxidative stress and can help prevents cataracts. In fact, cataract sufferers are usually deficient in this mineral.

Niacin, which is also referred to as Vitamin B3 helps convert food into energy. Niacin can also help prevent glaucoma, a condition where the optic nerve of the eye becomes damaged.

Noggin vitamins and minerals contain a number of B vitamins, vitamin C, D, Zinc, Magnesium and Glutathione, all specially formulated for good eye and brain health.
