Smoking Can Affect Your Vision Health

Smoking is a risk factor for certain eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. This is because it reduces blood flow and nutrient supply to the eyes and increases the amount of toxic substances like tar and nicotine in the body.  Hence, protect your eyes by quitting smoking. Consider taking an eye care supplement that contains Lutein, Zeaxanthin and various antioxidants to reduce age-related vision degeneration.

Are You At Risk For AMD ?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a chronic irreversible medical condition that results in the loss of central vision because of damage to the macular, also known as the central part of the retina. It occurs with increasing age and is most commonly seen in people who are over 60 years of age. One may see shadows in vision, have distorted vision, experience decreasing visual acuity, as well as the inability to discern colours or make out colour contrast when diagnosed with AMD. Studies found that Lutein and Zeaxanthin help prevent AMD and slow progression of the disease by preventing blue light from reaching the underlying structures of the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to AMD.

Fetuses and infants receive DHA from their mothers through the placenta and breast milk. Mothers should ensure sufficient DHA level through DHA-rich fishes that are free from heavy metals and pollutants, and high DHA supplements.

Keep Your Toothbrush Clean

Keeping your toothbrush clean is vital for your oral health. Always rinse your toothbrush with water after using it. Store your toothbrush in an upright position and allow it to air-dry until the next use. Do not routinely cover toothbrushes or store them in closed containers, as it  encourages the growth of bacteria. It is also important to replace your toothbrush approximately every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.  You may also opt for toothbrushes with anti-bacterial bristles to prevent bacteria growth on the brushhead. 

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.

Soluble fiber from oats, rice bran, and fruit will help to soften stools for easy elimination. Whole grains, cereals, seeds, and the skin of most fruits and vegetables provide insoluble fibers that help the stool pass quickly through the intestines. To meet your daily fiber needs, aim for at least 2 servings of fruit and 3 cups of vegetables/ legumes. Also, drink at least 8 glasses of water to aid regular bowel movement.
