Sunglasses aren’t just for your comfort—and their protecting you from more than you think. Over summer and everyday it’s important to protect and support your eye health! Start with sunglasses, then incorporate antioxidant rich foods (or a supplement) into your diet.
Did you know your eyes can get sunburned? I bet as a kid (if not a young adult showing off and making questionable decisions) you got a few peeling sunburns. You may already know that a history of sunburns increases your risk for skin cancer—but what about the damage in your eyes? If you’ve had sunburns, you’ve likely taken some damage to your eyes, too–and just like your skin, eyes can get cancer from the sun damage they take, including melanomas!
Luckily, most people have at least one pair of sunglasses, and if you don’t, they’re widely available at a variety of prices and in many sizes, shapes, and colors. Just make sure what you’re buying actually offers UV protection.
As for past damage, support your body’s natural healing system through your diet. Antioxidants are good for your eyes in general, and can help with healing, too. Colorful fruits and veggies have antioxidants as well as some other foods (like krill oil), but berries are the real antioxidant superstars.
For a big antioxidant boost, you can get the most antioxidant rich/strongest berries with Longevity Formula. With acai berry, maqui and Resveratrol (which naturally occurs in dark skinned grapes) it’s a big antioxidant boost.
Give your eyes the support they need this summer in two easy steps–make sure you’ve got sunglasses, and antioxidant support from Longevity Antioxidant Formula.
