Magic Juice to Maintain Eye Health

Eye problems often occur when you look too closely, such as reading, viewing in dim lighting.




Do not rest your eyes when using gadgets, and rub your eyes with your hands, both dirty and clean hands. These problems can actually be prevented by maintaining proper eye health and eating a balanced diet.


The eye is like any other organ in the body that requires nutrients and phytochemicals. Nutrients that play a role for eye health are vitamin A, provitamin A, protein, vitamin C, vitamin E, and omega-3. While the phytochemicals needed by the eye are lutein, zeaxanthin, quercetin, glutathione, lycopene, and flavonoids.


Nutritional and phytochemical needs can be met by consuming certain types of fruit, such as strawberries, papaya, and kiwi. The three types of fruit are sources of provitamin A, vitamin C, and carotenoids which play a role in inhibiting the process of degeneration of eye cells due to oxidation.


You can combine these three types of fruit into a refreshing and healthy fruit juice. The following is a recipe guide for combining all three types of fruit into fruit juice.


Ingredients:


1 large papaya (110 grams)

10 medium or large strawberries (100 grams), cleaned

1 medium kiwi fruit (150 grams), cut into pieces

How to make:


Use a juicer to extract the strawberry and kiwi juice.


Put the papaya into the blender.


Add the strawberry and kiwi juice and mix well.


The juice can be drunk directly without being filtered.


You can drink this magical juice that can maintain eye health after main meals, such as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This is so that the absorption of provitamin A becomes more optimal because it is supported by the fat content found in the main food.
