    It is true that spinach can save your eyes. It can prevent and even undermine the process of macular degeneration that can eventually lead to incurable blindness. Spinach has this function because that it has lutein and zeaxanthin which are two strong antioxidants for eyes. Lutein and zeaxanthin work coordinately as a pair of invisible glasses to protect you from eye problems associated with age. Spinach is one of the rich sources of these two antioxidants. Taking 6 mg of lutein and zeaxanthin per day is enough for average people. For those who want to treat macular degeneration, the amount should be 11-12 mg every day. There is research showing that eating spinach will improve the vision of people who are suffering from macular degeneration. Besides spinach, other leafy greens like Romaine lettuce, broccoli and zucchini are also rich in lutein and zeaxanthin.
