Q What are the benefits of Bilberry for eye health?
A Bilberry has a traditional use in eye problems, including poor vision, and 'night blindness' (the inability to differentiate between objects and colours in poor light). Night blindness, which is related to the absence of visual purple (rhodopsin), is materially improved by the powerful phytochemical antioxidant compounds such as proanthocyanidins and other polyphenolic bioflavonoids.
The role of Bilberry has been extensively researched and its benefits are reported extensively in the European medical press. Bilberry’s effectiveness is due to the presence of anthocyanosides, a group of polyphenolic compounds with strong antioxidant properties. They have a positive effect on the production of visual purple and prevention of free radical damage to the sensitive tissues of the eye.
Q What is the role of lutein in maintaining healthy eyes?
A Lutein is an powerful carotenoid antioxidant needed for normal vision. It supports the health of the macula, a small and highly sensitive part of the retina of the eye.
Q How does Eyebright and Rosemary support healthy eye function?
A Eyebright is an astringent herb which helps to relieve inflamed eyes and eye strain.
It assists with visual function and can be used topically for its astringent properties, similar to witch-hazel.
Rosemary has powerful antioxidant properties and aids in the maintenance or improvement of general wellbeing. Rosemary is reputed to be beneficial in nervous tension, tension headaches and migraines. It has an historical reputation in helping improve memory; “That’s Rosemary, that’s for remembrance (Hamlet - Shakespeare).
Q Why is are vitamins and minerals included in Nutra-Life's Bilberry 10,000 + Lutein Complex formula?
A Chromium is an essential trace mineral. Its only known activity in the body is as part of the Glucose Tolerance Factor, which stimulates insulin activities and is involved in the metabolism of glucose and the synthesis of protein, both critical factors in maintaining healthy eyes.
Very high concentrations of Zinc in the human body are found in the eye, especially the iris and retina. Although the exact mechanisms of its functions are largely unknown, Zinc seems to be involved in the activation of Vitamin A, and thus is a factor in night vision. In addition there is a growing body of evidence which indicates that poor Zinc intake is related to such eye conditions as impaired colour discrimination, cataract formation, and optic neuritis, the inflammation of the optic nerve.
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is also essential for healthy eyes. Found in the pigment of the retina, it enables the eyes to adapt to light. B2 deficiency may manifest itself as photophobia, (excessive sensitivity to light resulting in watery, inflamed and bloodshot eyes), blurred vision and eyestrain.
B3 is a co-enzyme in several important biochemical functions, particularly those needed to maintain healthy skin, and a properly functioning gastrointestinal tract and nervous system.
