  • Nutrition Tip

    Popeye ate spinach to build muscles but we now know that spinach is even better for your eyes. This is because spinach is one of the richest sources of lutein a phytonutrient that helps give spinach its color and helps shield it from the sun's harmful rays. In the same way that lutein protects spinach it also helps protect our eyes and other cells from damaging UV light – which can cause macular degeneration. This phytonutrient also helps fight off inherited diseases of the eye such as retinitis pigmentosa better known as tunnel vision and cataracts.
