Do you know that foods rich in zeaxanthin and lutein are good for preventing the most serious form of age-related macular degeneration?
What are these two foreign words, anyway? Zeaxanthin and lutein are two plant nutrients. These can be found on vegetables such as dark green leafy veggies. Spinach, turnip greens, kale or any similar green leafy veggies contain the two nutrients.
Having said that, one does not even need bowlfuls of veggies to get protected. In fact, a few bites of cooked dark green leafies will suffice, or a cup of spinach noodles is good enough.
