Drink Red Wine also as Eye Diet

July 14: Red wine has been known to be good for heart health when taken in moderation but a new survey suggests that it should be also a part of the regular diet to protect your eyes although the article depends more upon the old findings rather than any new study and suggests that it’s the Resveratrol that really has the beneficial effect

When it comes to heart, there are enough studies to show that moderate consumption of red wine regularly is good for heart, blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol. But people don’t pay much attention to the eyes in their diet. The eye doctors and dieticians feel that red wine should be as part of the regular diet to keep the eyes from ageing prematurely.

A British Dietician, Helen Bond recommends inclusion of vital vitamins and minerals to include in your diet to protect your eyesight, according to the Article in Daily Mail. Antioxidants, omega 3, carotenoids and Resveratrol are vital to help preserve eyesight and are typically found in foods including passion fruit, cheese and milk, salmon, kale and spinach, red wine and peanuts, she adds, explaining that red wine should be a regular part of any balanced diet.

According to a recent survey reported by the Daily Mail, 60% of respondents didn't know their diet affects their sight; with one in five incorrectly believing what they eat has no bearing at all on the health of their eyes. But the benefits of a healthy diet go further, helping to maintain the health of your eyes, she says.

With an ageing population, people are living longer than ever before. As with any other organ in the body, eyes are also affected as a person ages. Professor Christine Purslow, from the University of Plymouth, said: 'It is always a worry that while so many people consider sight so important so few of us take effective practical steps to maintain eye health.'

Emerging research suggests that Resveratrol, a polyphenol plant compound found naturally in grape skins and peanuts, is linked with health benefits. Thanks to reservatrol's antioxidant qualities, scientists believe the compound may also be vital to maintaining eye health.

So next time you have a glass of red wine, you might be doing your eyesight a favour.
