• AREDS 2 & Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

    on Nov 16th, 2016

Certain lifestyle choices can slow down macular degeneration:

  1. Eating lots of leafy green vegetables (spinach, kale, mustard greens & collard greens), they contain high levels of lutein, an important antioxidant. 
  2. Fruits & vegetables bright in color (peppers, corn, grapes, oranges, cantaloupe, & mango) also contain important antioxidants. 
  3. Eat 5-9 servings a day. This may seem like a lot, however, a serving is only ½ cup for most foods and 1 cup for leafy greens. 
  4. Eat fish twice a week, the best fish are wild salmon or small fish like sardines. Fish contains Omega-3, an important nutrient for the heart & eyes. Omega-3 supplements are also available. 
  5. AREDs2 supplements
