Various studies have shown that outdoor activity reduces occurrence of nearsightedness (myopia). Children and adolescents who spend less time outdoors are more likely to develop nearsightedness (myopia).
Scientific evidence supported this claim. Sunlight stimulates the release of dopamine, inhibiting nearsightedness (myopia) progression. Dopamine is an endogenous neurotransmitter of the catecholamine family and inhibits the elongation of the eyeball which causes axial myopia.
Research tells us that in order to reduce the risk and progression of myopia, , children and adolescents should spend 2-3 hours a day outdoors. This is particularly significative in mild and medium nearsightedness.
Good nutrition can also help prevent myopia. Eating the most colorful fruits and vegetables reduces the risks associated with free radicals and oxidative stress since they are rich in antioxidants and retinal pigments.
The high concentration and strength of vitamins, fatty acids, minerals and amino acids present in the MixAFA® makes it a great supplement for these specific nutrients.
