Avocados and eye health

Avocados are a nutrition rich food that is very good for your eyes.

A good way to eat avocado is in an avocado banana smoothie, created by none other than Martha Stewart!

Avocados are one of the most nutrient dense foods that exist, so it’s no wonder they’re great for your eyes. They contain more lutein than any other fruit, which is important in the prevention of macular degeneration and cataracts. They are also a great source of other important eye nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin E.
