Eye-friendly nutrients for dry eyes

Dry eye is the most common complaint among contact lens users especially those who work in air- conditioned room. Eye-friendly nutrients such as DHA, Antioxidants, Beta carotene and Lutien are important to support healthy eye functions including maintaining natural moisture level in the eye.  Include AFC Bilberry Lutein DX to your daily supplement regimen to preserve your eye health.

Airline cabins tend to have drier air quality and lower oxygen availability. If you’re a contact lens user, using lubricating eye drops in your eyes before boarding may help to relieve some eye dryness during flight. It is most ideal to remove your contact lens before flight; your eyes are most comfortable wearing glasses when traveling by plane.

Overexposure to harmful UV rays can cause up to 20% more collagen loss in skin. Always ensure you have sun protection and stay out of the sun from 10am to 4pm, when the rays are the most intense. According to Environmental Working Group in UK, there are currently no sunscreens that meet their safety levels.

Eat early, weight less!

“When you eat” as well as “how much you eat”  may also affect your weight. Studies suggest that consuming more of your daily calories at breakfast and fewer at dinner can help you drop more pounds. Eating a larger, healthy breakfast can jump start your metabolism, stop you feeling hungry during the day, and give you more time to burn off the calories.

Math for weight lost.

One pound of fat is approximately to 3500 calorie. Cut down 500kcal per day gives you 1 pound of fat lost per week. Cut down 250kcal per day by simply by skipping one slice of bread (75kcal), one tablespoon of peanut butter (90kcal), and three tablespoons of rice (90kcal). The rest of the 250kcal, you can burn it off easily with simple exercises: 15-min walk to office and 15-min back from office (95kcal) plus 20-min jogging. Set your weight target sensibly with the math! Remember not to push yourself too hard as it may cause lost weight rebound!
