Are eye vitamins good for glaucoma?
There is little evidence to support vitamin supplements helping to prevent or cure vision loss due to glaucoma.
Some studies suggest that taking B vitamins or including foods that are high in B vitamins like green vegetables, may reduce the risk of developing certain types of glaucoma.
Vitamin C may reduce the risk of developing glaucoma, too, but always speak to your doctor first before taking vitamins for your eye health.
Who should take B vitamins?
There are 8 B vitamins in total, but the ones you might recognise the most are biotin, folate (folic acid) and vitamin B12.
You can also take a vitamin B complex which includes all of the recommended doses of all 8 in a single supplement.
Vitamin B impacts your energy levels, brain function, metabolism, and is especially important for pregnant and breastfeeding women as it aids fetal development and can reduce the risk of birth defects.
Taking vitamin B is important for older men, too, as it can increase testosterone levels which are thought to naturally decrease with age.
What causes dry eyes?
There are lots of different reasons why you might be suffering from dry eyes - although they might be irritating, they’re usually nothing to be concerned about.
You’ll be more likely to develop dry eyes if you’re over 50, wear contact lenses, spend a long time looking at screens, if you spend time in air-conditioned or windy, cold dry and dusty environments; take certain medicines, and smoke or drink excessively.
What are the best vitamins for children?
Children and teens have different nutritional needs to adults, so it’s important to meet their needs to ensure healthy growth and development.
Calcium is an essential building block for healthy bones and teeth and will help your children into their adult lives by protecting them against bone loss.
While vitamin D also helps to build strong bones, it can help protect your children against diseases later on in life.
Vitamin B12 and other B vitamins are essential for your child’s metabolism, energy, heart and nervous system.
