How to Improve your Ocular Health

The visual system is one of the most complex and demanding systems of the body.  The muscles around eyes are the most used muscle groups in the body, and more than 25% of the nutrition in your body is absorbed through this system.

1. Take Multivitamins – The amount of vitamin C and other nutrients is higher in the eyes than anywhere else in the body. Proper nutrition is an extremely important in preventing and treating most common eye problems including cataracts and glaucoma.  Keep in mind that proper nutritional balance is important.  The body does not use each vitamin and mineral separately, but it allows specific vitamins and minerals to work together in order to nourish the body.

2. Hydrate your eyes – A saline solution can go a long way in keeping your eyes soothed and lubricated.  Other problems such as mild allergy problems can be relieved with over the counter anti-histamine eye drops.

3. Eat your Veggies! – Green vegetables such as spinach, collard, and kale can help to prevent degenerative eye problems such as macular degeneration.  When the macula doesn’t work, there is blurriness or darkness in the center of your vision.

4. Eat your Fruits! – Blueberries and apricots are especially good for ocular health because they help reduce eye fatigue and are full of beta-carotene and lycopene which encourage good eyesight.

5. Take a break – If you spend most of your time on a computer, take a break every 20 minutes.  Every 20 seconds look at least 20 feet away to refocus your eyes and give them a break.

6. Eat fish – Omega 3 fish oil is a key ingredient in having healthy eyes. Omega 3 is good for the heart, and as a general rule, heart-healthy diets are also good for the eyes. Make eating salmon and tuna a part of your weekly routine.

5 Ways to Reduce Cellulite

Filed under: cellulite,exercise,fish oil,flax,omega 3,Uncategorized,uv rays — dennisv @ 4:06 pm

90% of women develop cellulite at some point in their life. The thigh, buttocks, and the stomach are the most common places for cellulite to develop in women. There aren’t perfect methods available that get rid of cellulite, the most effective methods involve surgery, but there are many simple things you can do to minimize the appearance of your cellulite.

1. Exercise – Exercise is the best thing you can do for your body. Not only is exercise a natural energy booster, but it can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Exercise enhances the circulation in your skin, tightens your thighs and butt, burns fat, and reduces the surface area of your body minimizing the appearance of cellulite.

2. Sunscreen – The sun’s ultra-violet rays can be hard on the cells of the skin. UV rays damage the connective tissues in the skin and weaken the blood vessels causing cellulite formation. Try to avoid too much sun exposure and protect your skin from UV damage by using sunscreen which will keep your skin healthy.

3. Caffeine – If you are going to use products on your cellulite, products that contain caffeine are some of the most effective due to the ingredients that stimulate collagen, promote blood circulation, reduce fluid retention, and repair weak tissue.

4. Eat oceanic plants – Seaweed and algae has properties that temporarily firm and tighten the skin while filling in the surface areas with dimpled spaces. Seaweed is not a common ingredient in North American diets, so be bold and go out for sushi or snack on sheets of nori.

5. The right diet – Things that include lecithin and essential fatty acids help repair cell membranes and reduce the fat’s ability to squeeze through connective tissue and create cellulite. A food that contains lecithin are egg yolks, and you can get essential fatty acids from flax seeds, fish and nut oils. Try taking Omega-3 supplements to improve your fatty acid levels and can actually help with acne problems as well.
