They support visual acuity and nighttime vision, offering a comprehensive protection plan for the precious health of your eyes.Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take one capsule three times per day with water.Benefits of the Product:BilberryBilberry is a medicinal herb closely related to the blueberry bush that grows in North America and Europe. Bilberry's medicinal components, powerful antioxidants called anthocyanosides, are found in the herb's ripe berries. The antioxidants' medicinal action includes supporting the growth of connective tissue and strengthening capillaries, which make bilberry an herb appropriate for the treatment of eye disorders, which are often characterized by weak blood vessels and poor circulation. The use of bilberry to treat eye problems has stood the test of time -- it was used by British pilots during World War II, who ate bilberry jam to improve their night vision prior to night bombing raids. According to HolisticOnline.com, conditions bilberry may effectively treat include cataracts, macular degeneration, night blindness and retinopathy. A standard dosage in the treatment of eye disorders is 240 to 480 mg daily of bilberry extract in tablet or capsule form.EYE PROTECTOR - Bilberry extracts are rich in a flavonoid known as anthocyanoside, which exerts potent effects primarily through improving blood flow and the delivery of oxygen to the eye. The potent antioxidant effects of Bilberry also protect the eyes from free-radical damage, the causative factor involved in the development of cataracts and macular degeneration. The collagen protecting effects of bilberry also play a significant role in prevention and treatment of glaucoma.CIRCULATORY TONIC - Clinical studies have shown good results in the treatment of various circulatory problems through reduced capillary fragility, improving collagen stability, and restoring connective tissue that surround the veins. Reduction in platelet aggregation has also been noted in those using bilberry extracts. This offers benefits in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis and clot formation.BLOOD SUGAR LOWERING - The anthocyanoside myrtillin, found in bilberry, exerts hypoglycaemic effects with even a single dose exerting beneficial effects lasting several weeks.ANTI-INFLAMMATORY - Anthocyanosides and other flavonoid compounds found in bilberry prevent the release of inflammatory chemicals such as leukotrienes, histamine and prostaglandins.EyebrightEyebright grows indigenously in Europe, where the herb is processed for medicinal preparations. The active constituents in eyebright include iridoid glycosides, flavonoids and tannins, which are responsible for alleviating swelling and redness of the eye and vision disturbances. The active components in the herb improve blood circulation, which delivers nutrients to the eyes, improving their health. Eyebright is primarily used as a topical treatment for eye infections, including styes, blepharitis and conjunctivitis. HolisticOnline.com recommends using 2 to 4 grams of the dried herb to prepare a decoction for external application with a poultice. For internal use, take about 50 drops of the tincture in water three times a day.EYE TONIC - eyebright exerts broad protective effects on eye health including; styes, eye fatigue symptoms, sensitivity to light, weeping, stinging, and functional eye disorders of muscular and nervous origin. In folk medicine eyebright is used for blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelid) and conjunctivitis, and for inflammation of the mouth and throatANTI-CATARRHAL - eyebright is an excellent remedy for the problems of mucus membranes. Being astringent and anti-inflammatory it is useful for many conditions and may be used systemically for watery catarrhal conditions of nose, sinus and middle ear.Customer Reviews on the ProductGathered from different online shopping websites"I've been taking this for over two months, and I've noticed that my evening and twilight vision has improved.
