Our eyes are one of the most underappreciated parts of the human body. It’s easy for us to take for granted just how much work we put them through every single day. When we do notice something about our eyes, it is normally due to a complication like blurry vision.
Just as we can nourish and detoxify our bodies to see improvement in digestion and general wellness, we can also apply those principles to our eye health. We’ll review some eye health basics and which Purium superfoods are best for supporting eyesight.

Habits That Are Hurting Your Vision
Before we dive into how you can support your eyes naturally, let’s start off with some of the possible reasons why your vision might be over-strained in the first place.
Staring At Screens All Day
In today’s digital world, it’s fairly common for the average person to stare at screens for hours upon hours a day. Whether that’s a computer monitor, a tablet, or a smartphone, your eyes fatigue just like other body parts do when they are constantly working.
A good way to relieve some of that fatigue is to take breaks every 20 minutes of staring at a screen, and strengthen your eye muscles by using a Tibetan eye chart.
If you need more reasons to stop smoking, you can add this to the list. Smokers are four times more likely to develop AMD (an eye disease that can blur your central vision). They also develop this disease around five years sooner than those who don’t smoke.
Not Wearing Sunglasses
While many people wear sunglasses for style points, they are very important to protect your eyes from UV rays. No need to spend hundreds of dollars on a single pair, just ensure they provide 100% UV protection.
Rubbing Your Eyes
We’ve all been guilty of rubbing our eyes. In some instances, there is no other choice. It isn’t a big deal if it happens every once in a while. When it becomes a habit, problems can arise. Did you know there are eye diseases that are associated with eye-rubbing? One of these diseases is called keratoconus, a condition where your cornea thins out and begins to bulge outward in a cone shape. This results in distorted and blurry vision. Oh no!
Taste the Rainbow to See the Rainbow
As usual, having a diet rich in fruits and veggies goes a long way in supporting your overall health. When it comes to your eye health, certain foods stand out to help your vision. A good rule of thumb to keep things simple is to incorporate colorful fruits and vegetables. This includes foods such as carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, citrus, strawberries, and spinach.
Why are colorful foods great for your eyes? They are rich in vitamins and minerals that can help prevent macular (part of the retina responsible for clear vision in your direct line of sight) degeneration. Those nutrients are:
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Vitamins A, C, E
Purium Superfood Recommendations for Eye Health
Our number one Purium product for anyone who wants to improve their vision is Super Xanthin. In a double-blind study, the use of astaxanthin showed substantial improvement in participants’ shortsightedness and farsightedness. Some participants even reported that they no longer needed their reading glasses!
When you combine Super Xanthin with Super Amino 23, you will see a SUPER impact on your body including your skin looking significantly healthier, better eyesight, increased supportive protection from UV rays, and faster recovery after workouts.
Spirulina is an amazing superfood high in zeaxanthin and lutein and is also loaded in beta-carotene. You would need to eat a ton of carrots just to match the nutritional density you get in just a small amount of spirulina. Just 3-5 servings of Purium Organic Spirulina a day will yield transformational results.
