Can Moringa Help To Improve Eye Health?

in Eye
There are many things that can go wrong with your eyes. It is becoming continually rarer for aging individuals to have healthy eyes. This is because humans and animals alike are subject to conditions like cataracts, macular degeneration and dry eye. Various studies have proven that, when it comes to improving eye health, Moringa is a supplement you will certainly want to pursue. Along with studies, users of Moringa have seen the health improvements in their eyes and in the rest of their body.

The University of Kerala hosted an experiment where rat pups were tested for cataracts after different injections. The control group was given an injection of sodium selenite while the active group was given Moringa extract injections. The development of cataracts in the rat pups were assessed on day 16. What the researchers reported was that Moringa is great for improving eye health because it prevented oxidative damage to the eyes of the rats, therefore preventing cataracts from forming. Along with this, the activities of antioxidant enzymes were maintained, lipid peroxidation was prevented, and the generation of reactive oxygen species was avoided.

Another condition treated by Moringa is macular degeneration. This medical condition is mostly found in elderly people. It results in central vision loss, the inability to see details, and a decreased knack for recognizing faces. Studies in age-related eye diseases revealed that by combining high doses of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, beta-carotene and Zinc, the development of macular degeneration was decreased by 25% in patients where early signs of the disease had been noticed. Moringa is a supplement that contains all of these nutrients in high amounts, which is why it is so good at improving eye health. In fact, there are more than 90 nutrients and 46 antioxidants found in the herb that gives it its healing properties.

Dry eye is when the eyes are unable to produce their own lubrication effectively. Blinking does not improve the wetness of the eye, and pharmaceutical teardrops are usually required to allow the person with the condition to function normally. People with dry eye will feel relief when they take a Moringa capsule because of the properties that allow it to provide greater eye lubrication. The herb is perfect for improving eye health daily in this way while lubricating drops only help for a few hours. Whether you have an eye condition or you simply want to keep your eyes healthy, Moringa is the supplement for you.
