Do You Need More Vitamin C To See? – Huffington Post
This study published in the journal, Ophthalmology, looked at the diets of 1,000 female twins and uncovered that those with initial diets rich in vitamin C-rich foods, but not supplements, were associated with a 20 percent reduction in the risk for cataracts. After a decade of following these 500 sets of twins, the researchers found that those women who consumed more vitamin C-rich foods had over a 30 percent risk reduction in the progression of cataracts. A daily intake of 55 to 230 milligrams daily, which can easily be consumed in a healthy diet, was shown to be protective. It is thought that vitamin C, which baths the lens of the eye, may act as an antioxidant protecting your vision.
