Apart from normal ageing, your eyes get exposed daily to the sun’s UV rays, electronic devices’ blue light, pollution and free radicals. These perils lead to oxidative degeneration, which weakens your vision and immunity.
At this point, your body and eyes call for organic food supplementation to help restore and improve your overall health. Luckily, we’ve brought you a wealth of purely organic products such as:
- Astaxanthin, the most powerful yet gentle carotenoid
- Lingonberries, the little-known vision booster
- Blueberries, the richest superfruits
We’ll also share a few recipes to give you an early pass into celebrating improved eyesight.
1. Astaxanthin: The Most Powerful Carotenoid
When it comes down to the health of your eyes, organic astaxanthin always sees it clearly. It’s 6000 times more potent than the traditional vitamin C, and it’s the most gentle antioxidant.
1.1. How Astaxanthin Protects Your Eyes
Once you take natural astaxanthin, it enters your brain by crossing the blood-brain barrier. From there, it enters your eyes through the blood-retinal barrier.
Once in the eyes, astaxanthin proactively begins its long-awaited job of neutralising free radicals.
Here are some of the ways astaxanthin works wonders for your eyes:
- Averts double-vision
- Reduces diabetes-related blindness
- Prevents pollution-induced damage
- Slows age-associated eye conditions
- Increases the ability to see minute details
- Increases blood flow in the eye capillaries
- Strengthens the retina’s collagen structure
- Enhances eye lubrication and prevents soreness
- Sharpens visual sensation and improves critical flicker fusion
- Reduces eye fatigue and strain by improving accommodation speed
For your convenience and product hygiene, LOOV Food has packed all of astaxanthin’s natural goodness into easy-to-swallow capsules of 12 mg and 4 mg.
- Take 12 mg with food daily for 2 months
- Then take 4 mg daily with food
2. Blueberries: The Richest Superfruit
Wild Nordic blueberries are famous for their generosity with anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are antioxidants that your eyes need in order to maintain clear vision.
Blueberries are also packed with vitamin A and C, both vital in fighting free radicals, which are unstable molecules that cause disease. These vitamins also aid in preventing inflammation and treating eye dryness.
Are you living with diabetes (retinopathy) or imminent cataracts? Let our blueberries nourish you with flavonoids that can prevent damage to your eyes.
Zinc is another essential mineral richly available in wild blueberries. It reconditions your eyes for maximum night vision. Take a tablespoonful of LOOV organic freeze-dried blueberry powder daily to increase your ability to see in the dark.
Zinc will also protect you against macular degeneration.
2.1. How to Enjoy Blueberries
Snacking away at fresh wild berries is an absolute delight. But fresh, unrefrigerated blueberries may be out of your reach.
Some vendors sell blueberry syrup extracts devoid of fibre and other essential compounds. Others peddle cultivated or synthetic versions, which are poor in nutrients and are riddled with chemical impurities.
But LOOV Food’s freeze-dried berries are as rich as they were in their natural habitat. Not an ounce of vitality is lost.
You can add the powder to your porridge, yoghurt, or bakery products daily. Adding it to a smoothie turns every glass into a feast.
Blend all the ingredients and enjoy!
3. Lingonberries: The Little Known Vision Booster
Natural lingonberries are full of anthocyanins, a vital antioxidant for the health of your eyes.
Get a clean shot of vitamin A, vitamin E and many essential eye-protecting compounds such as quercetin and resveratrol. Your eyes need these ingredients to fight glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy.
The abundance of vitamin A in wild lingonberries will clear up your corneas and improve your night vision.
Organic Nordic lingonberries’ flavonoid load is good news to the body’s fight against free radicals, which cause eye inflammation and other diseases.
LOOV Food ensures you reap all the benefits of fresh wild berries wherever you may be. We’ve achieved this through freeze-drying them for you.
Here’s how to enrich your favourite smoothie with LOOV organic freeze-dried lingonberry powder.
Blend all the ingredients and make a toast to healthy eyes.
The table below shows how organic freeze-dried berries differ from their dehydrated counterparts.
|Organic freeze-dried berries
|Have higher preserved nutritional value (about 97%)
|Have less nutritional value as the heat used to dehydrate them diminishes their value by 40-50%
|Have a longer shelf-life and a more durable potency as 98-99% of their moisture is removed
|Have a shorter shelf-life since only about 80-90% of their moisture is removed
|Taste great as they have their nutrients, flavors, colour, and texture intact
|Don’t taste as great since some vitamins and minerals are stripped during the heating process
|Much easier to rehydrate as they only require water (hor or cold) to reconstitute to their original state
|They don’t return to their original state once rehydrated as they’ve already been subjected to heat
|Pure, without additives or preservatives
|Laced with synthetic additives, preservatives and fillers
