Age, poor lighting and eye strain can cause unfortunate changes in our eyes. Lifelong exposure to light may decrease the photoreceptors (light-sensitive nerve cells) in the eye. Sunlight can produce free radicals that break down, or oxidize, the lipids making up the outer segments of photoreceptors. This oxidation eventually damages the retina where visual perception is most acute and can result in vision loss.
But this process is not inevitable. Studies have shown that bilberry can help maintain normal eye function. Planetary Herbals premier bilberry compounds provide rich amounts of anthocyanosides, known to support the eyes and deliver potent antioxidant protection.
The Bilberry Alternative
Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) is a dark blue, edible fruit, similar to the common blueberry. During World War II, bilberry was used by British bomber pilots, who believed it helped their night vision. Bilberry has been a staple of European herbalism for hundreds of years, and has become one of the most widely used herbs in the United States for supporting vision.
Bilberry is naturally rich in anthocyanosides
A special class of flavonoid that gives the berries their blue pigment. Anthocyanosides are powerful antioxidants with an affinity for connective tissue. Bilberry supports the capillary integrity of the retina, plus the normal production of rhodopsin, a substance in the rods of the retina that is necessary for night vision. Studies suggest bilberry also may help the eyes adapt to variations in light intensity and may increase circulation to the eye’s intricate network of tiny blood vessels.
Bilberry Eye Complex
Bilberry Eye Complex is a comprehensive formula that unites concentrated, standardized bilberry extract with the Chinese compound, Ming Mu Di Huang Wan, which literally translates to mean Bright Eye Rehmannia Formula. This is the classic
Chinese herbal compound used to support normal vision.
