Green tea and the eyes

Green tea and the eyes

If you haven’t jumped on the green tea train you need to start now as it’s never late to kick start anything ..

Green tea is a super drink packed with anti-oxidant that benefits not only the body but the EYES.

Green tea is not only high in Vitamin C and E, it also contains eye crucial antioxidants, lutein and  zeaxanthin. 

Green tea is packed with powerful eye healthy nutrients like gallocatechin which helps protect the RETINA from harmful rays.

The fact that the compound gallocatechin helps to protect retinal ganglion cells against oxidative-stress injury and as the retinal ganglion cell is a neuron that is located near the inner surface of the eye’s retina and helps to transmit image-forming and non-image forming visual information from the retina to several regions of our brain.

Green tea’s most important health-boosting chemicals are called “polyphenols.” They play key roles in reducing inflammation, destroying free radicals, and supporting signals between cells.

If you have the following eye condition:

  • Macular Degeneration
  • Glaucoma
  • Pterygium 
  • Dry Eyes 
  • Retinal vein occlusion 
  • Cancer of the eye 

Or you would want to prevent them, start drinking green tea today. 

Wondering how much you could drink to tap into the goodness of green tea,

Let’s start with at least 2 to 3 cups a day. 

Thank us later.
