Eat This To Improve Your Night Vision

For those who have trouble driving at night, the cure may be as close away as the grocery store.

New research from China has found that lutein — found in the vegetable kale — can help improve your night vision.

Lutein is found in the eye and, if low, a person’s vision is impaired.

The study found that those who had consumed daily lutein supplements over a year’s time actually improved their sensitivity to glare, overall vision, and contrast ability.

A look at the right way to add the supplement to your diet (via Men’s Health):

The 20 milligrams (mg) of lutein that people consumed every day is about the same as 1 cup of cooked kale (about 4 cups raw)—not exactly a small amount to consume daily. But a diet rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables will help you consume optimal levels of the nutrient, suggests a study from the University of Texas.

However, if you’re looking to sharpen your vision, you may need to take a supplement to really see the effects.

Potential causes that lead to low lutein include poor diet, smoking and exposure to UV light.
