Easy on the Eyes

solanova supplements to prevent eye disease

Oftentimes we don’t see eye problems coming.  Everything seems to be going along fine.  You can still discern individual, green leaves on the trees and easily avoid hitting a dog taking a nap on your cul-de-sac.  However, you might be speeding down the freeway one Friday evening and sail right by the exit you want, thereby missing your favorite cousin’s surprise birthday party by a vital fifteen minutes.  All of a sudden you realize you have to face the hard facts:  I can’t see as well as I used to.

Rather than living in blind denial, it’s always best to make an annual appointment with your Ophthalmologist or other eye care professional.  It could be that whatever is bothering your eyesight is less problematic than you imagine.  Your doctor may recommend taking short breaks every hour while working on the computer to alleviate eyestrain.  It’s also a good idea to have proper lighting when reading or doing something that requires consistent eye focus.  Additionally there are certain antioxidant-enriched foods and supplements that promote healthy eyesight and can even thwart some chronic eye conditions and diseases.

So take off the blinders and make a beeline for your annual vision check up.  Oh, and call your cousin.  Promise him you won’t be late next year!

Let the Sunshine in

Sunshine brings Vitamin D

You know that big, scary, powerful, orange fireball in the sky?  No? You mean you’ve been hiding from it for the last, say, twenty years?  Much like eggs and the cholesterol battle, our poor, neglected sun has been getting a bad rap lately.  That’s not to say you should go old school, break out the bathing suit and slather yourself with baby oil, but it turns out that a little- i.e. 15 minutes-of unprotected sun exposure 3 times a week can be good for you.  Yes, good for you.

There’s a good reason we have a sun smiling down on us (and who could afford the heating bill otherwise?).  We are running a vitamin D deficit; some studies show that overall we get 50% less vitamin D absorption than we need for a healthy lifestyle.  Vitamin D is best known for aiding calcium absorption and building strong bones but is now thought to also help thwart certain types of cancer, heart disease and other chronic health conditions.  Taking a quality supplement can help with our shortage of this crucial vitamin.  And the sun wants to help us out too.  Vitamin D is so vital to our health that our bodies manufacture it automatically, but only after our skin has been exposed to ample sunlight.

So toss off that oversized hat and leave the sun block at home-for a few minutes anyway.  It’s time to catch some rays, literally.  And be sure to take your vitamins too.  After all, they’re good for you and will help you have a happy and healthy summer.

Enjoy!
