What are the alimony most recommended in case of glaucoma? Glaucoma is a condition that can damage the optic nerve and cause vision loss. This is a problem that must never be overlooked. Again, follow the right diet it might help.




The nutrition advice to follow for prevent glaucoma come from a new study conducted by researchers fromUniversity of Valencia and published in the journal Archives of the Spanish Society of Ophthalmology.

Some foods could help, in the opinion of experts, in the prevention of glaucoma and to relieve symptoms, with significant improvements. Glaucoma affects 55 million people worldwide, who could benefit from a healthy and correct diet.

Among the foods suggested by experts to prevent and relieve the symptoms of glaucoma we find fruit, vegetables and chocolate. Among the drinks, however, here coffee, tea and red wine. In any case, these are drinks and foods rich in antioxidants, which are beneficial for the retina.

Experts therefore suggest choosing foods that contain antioxidants, retinol, vitamin B1 and omega 3. Among the plant sources of omega 3 walnuts are worth mentioning, while for the Vitamin B1 here are the potatoes. Fruits and vegetables are particularly rich in polyphenols, mainly present in thegrape.

There seems to be a very close relationship between nutrition and glaucoma. It is therefore better not to neglect to frequently include foods rich in antioxidants in our diet. Following a healthy diet can give short-term benefits on symptoms and may be useful for prevention. Further studies on glaucoma and nutrition will however be needed to deepen the subject.
