Have you ever wondered why cats’ eyes always glow at night?

Have you also wished you had their amazing night vision?

Cat’s eyes glow because of a layer in their retina called tapetum lucidum. Unfortunately, humans don’t have this layer.

However there might still be hope, an article I once read said that the color of the glow from a cat’s eyes depends on the amount of zinc and riboflavin in the cells of their eyes.

Looking at these 2 vitamins, Riboflavin and zinc are actually amazing vitamins for vision, even for humans. Riboflavin or vitamin B2 is one of the Essential vitamins for humans. It helps the body breakdown carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, so the body is able to utilize them better for Energy. A lack in Riboflavin means the possibility of blurred vision, as well as cracked skin, skin rash, anemia, and fatigue.

Zinc on th other hand, is an essential mineral used to improve and prevent macular degeneration, night blindness, and cataracts. Aside from those benefits to the eyes, zinc also improves and supports the immune system, the repair and healing ability of the body, and over all health of the different organ Systems.

So, let the cat keep reminding us to add Riboflavin and Zinc in our diets every day for better eyesight, night vision, and over all health.
