More about the ingredients:
Bilberry. Scientifically proven to protect and strengthen the small blood vessels that feed the eye which makes it an effective treatment for retinopathy, macular degeneration as well as in reducing the inflammation of the retina. Bilberry supplementation improves the speed of adapting to darkness for people who have poor night vision.
Amla. Indian gooseberry (Phyllanthus emblica), or amla, is a deciduous tree and a very popular medicinal herb. The fruits of this tree possess antibacterial and antiviral properties. Research shows that Amla improves myopia, decreases intra-ocular pressure and prevents the formation of cataracts.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is one of the most effective remedies for cataracts and has been shown to reduce both small and large blood vessel complications of diabetes.
Curcumin is rich in antioxidants that can fight free radicals caused by oxidative stress. This is said to benefit those with eye disorders like glaucoma and macular degeneration. Oxidation of the lens is a major causes of many eye disorders. Curcumin also protects optic nerves from damage.
Grape seed extract is effective in preventing blood leakage from damaged vessels. Research shows that grape seed extract can help prevent diabetic retinopathy.
Milk Thistle. Weak eyes and blurred vision can be signs of liver malfunction which indicates that what is bad for the liver can also be bad for your eyes. Milk thistle is known for its beneficial effect on the liver support but has been shown to benefit the eyes as well. The liver is a key organ for your eyes since fat soluble vitamins and glutathione are stored here.
Calendula: Calendula Lutein and zeaxanthin, the key nutrients for eye health, are found naturally in Calendula. Calendula extract is the best source of lutein and zeaxanthin which have demonstrated success in protecting the eyes. Lutein and zeaxanthin are both found in large quantities in the lens and retina of the eyes. Their function is to protect the eyes from damage caused by free radicals, which can interact with and break down healthy tissue. In addition, lutein and zeaxanthin help protect the eyes by filtering high-energy blue light. By filtering blue light, the pigment protects underlying cell layers from potential light damage. Supplementation with lutein and zeaxanthin has demonstrated the ability to prevent macular degeneration.
What is blue light?
Blue light is the most dangerous light for the retina, not only because it causes free radicals to form but pierces deeper into the eyes than UV light does, which allows it to damage the rods and cones in the eye. Blue light isn’t easy to avoid. It is found in sunlight, LED and fluorescent lights, computer monitors, tablets, smart phones and more! The only protection is macular pigment, which absorbs the blue light and protects the delicate eye cells.
