This simple 2-ingredient recipe brings three key nutrients to bear for the benefit of your eyes. Pumpkin contains the trio of zinc, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C. Vitamin A protects the cornea, improves low-light vision, and slows the progression of age-related macular degeneration.
Zinc in pumpkin acts as a catalyst for Vitamin A to make its way from the liver to the retina, forming melanin – a pigment that protects the eye from the damaging effects of sunlight, acting as a natural sunscreen.
Both pumpkin and pineapple contain Vitamin C, which also slows the progression of age-related macular degeneration and reduces the risk of cataract development. It may lessen tension within the vitreous humor, thereby helping prevent retinal detachment.
Studies suggest bromelain in pineapple may help reduce the occurrence of eye floaters.

The Juicer: Kuvings REVO830
I made the Clear Lines using the Kuvings REVO830 juicer. This machine juices and so much more!
The Kuvings REVO830 combines the technology of a vertical and horizontal cold press juicer all in one machine thanks to a unique dual-feed produce hopper. On one side is a vertical cut chute that handles long produce like cucumbers, carrots, chard, and celery without a single cut. On the other is a 3.5″ wide auto-cut hopper that lets you drop in whole, bulky produce like apples, beets, and oranges without chopping.
This revolutionary design saves you TONS of time while giving you good yields and nutrient extraction. Not only does the REVO830 create great juice, it also makes fabulous nut milk, smoothies, sorbets, and nice cream. As a bonus, it’s a super quiet machine.
This versatile juicer has an upgraded motor that allows you to run non-stop up to 45 minutes, with the whole thing being protected by an astounding 15-year warranty. I highly recommend this machine for any home juicer, from newbies to veterans. It’s one that I use regularly!
