A potent berry antioxidant, Bilberry Extra provides targeted eye-health support and slows the progression of conditions such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Each capsule is equivalent to 6-9 grams of berries that help to strengthen fragile blood vessels and boost delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the eye.
Seeing begins with light reflecting from an object onto the cornea, which is a clear film covering the iris and pupil. The light rays are transmitted from the retina as electrical impulses through the optic nerve to the brain, where images are recognized. Each part of your eye involved in the process of seeing is fed by tiny blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients, including antioxidants, to nourish the eyes and help repair damage caused by overuse and accumulated exposure to solar radiation. In traditional herbal medicine, berries, particularly the dark and blue fruits such as bilberry and blueberry, are recommended for their antioxidant properties and to promote eye health.
