Preserve Your Eye Health

After age of 40 years, tear secretion progressively reduces which may lead to dry eys. To avoid having dry eyes, we need to take in enough Omega-3 fatty acids which help to nourish, moisturize and sooth dry eyes by reducing inflammation activity.Include more Omega-3 rich-food such as salmon, tuna, flaxseed, almond and walnut in your daily diet. For extra help, grab a bottle of AFC Bilberry Lutien DX or AFC Ultimate Vision that contains a full range of eye nutrients such as DHA Omega 3, Lutein and various Antioxidants! 

Feed Your Eyes

In various studies and clinical trials, antioxidant vitamins such as vitamins A, C and E can help maintain healthy cells and tissues in the eyes. These vitamins are found in fruits and vegetables such as oranges, tomatoes, kale and spinach. Two key protective antioxidants are lutein and zeaxanthin, which also help to protect against macular degeneration and free radical damage. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for nerve conduction in the retina. For healthy eyes, eat a good and balanced diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, with oily fish like salmon, sardine or mackerel.

Do I Need To Use Mouthwash?

Adding a rinse with mouthwash to your oral care routine can improve the overall cleanliness of your mouth. It helps to remove debris from the mouth, reduce bad breath as well as provide additional protection against cavities and gum diseases.

Sensitive Teeth? Pick The Right Brush For Pain-Free Brushing

For those with sensitive teeth and bleeding gum, brushing and cleaning interdental spaces can create pain and discomfort. Tooth sensitivity occurs as a result of receding gum and exposed dentin. Also, brushing too hard can damage enamel and cause the recession of gum. The build-up of plaque may cause gum disease which leads to gum bleeding and sensitivity. Pick a soft brush with fine bristles to reduce abrasion on tooth structure and to better cleanse the gum line. A toothbrush with a compact brush head allows you to brush hard-to-reach areas, like back teeth, which can be easily missed when brushing with a normal-sized brush head.
