Brussels sprouts are a rich source of the phytonutrients lutein and zeaxanthin, which have been shown to have a protective effect on eye health. Pomegranates contain polyphenol antioxidants that help to protect the body against free-radical damage that can increase your risk of diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
