    How Does Eyebright Extract Support Eye Health?

    Eyebright is one of a few select plants that specifically help the eyes. With pretty pale mauve flowers that are deeply veined with violet, eyebright grows in grasslands and woods in North America, Europe and Asia. An extract of the whole herb is used and a compress of the decoction“will give surprisingly rapid relief of redness, swelling and visual disturbances in acute and sub-acute eye inflammations.” (Weiss)

    However, eyebright is not just for external use. Although The method of action is unknown, eyebright extract taken internally also benefits the eye. Daniel Mowrey suggests that internal use of eyebright “probably affects the liver among other organs in such a way as to cleanse the blood supply to the eyes.” Research into eyebright is lagging, with few studies, but the anecdotal and historical use of eye-bright abounds. It is an herb that will not go away despite its neglect by researchers. (Mowrey)

    How Does Bilberry Support Eye Health?

    Another key component in the Eye Factors Formula is bilberry. The active constituents in bilberry can be traced to a group of flavonoids called anthocyanosides. Bilberry Anthocyanosides are powerful antioxidants that prevent free radical damage.

    The most promising research shows that bilberry extract improves nighttime visual acuity, with quicker adjustment to darkness and faster restoration of vision after exposure to glare. Further studies show that bilberry extract also helps those with hemeralopia (day blindness), or the inability to see distinctly in bright light. “It appears that the purple bilberry anthocyanosides have an affinity for the pigmented epithelium or visual purple area of the retina. This Portion of the retina is responsible for vision and controls the adaptation from dark to light and vice versa... The Outcome is that anthocyanoside extracts of bilberry appear to be of great value in the treatment of both poor night vision and poor day vision.” (Murray)

    In 1964, a team of French scientists confirmed that bilberry improved adaptation to darkness, especially after prolonged exposure to bright light, and visual acuity even in dim light improved. It seems that the most visual improvement happened during the first four hours after a single dose of crude bilberry extract and wore off completely within 24 hours.

    Research shows bilberry extract promising for more serious ailments like glaucoma and diabetes. But most of us,whether we are students, truck drivers, pilots or if we just spend long hours in front of a computer screen, can benefit from bilberry extract, especially if we suffer from eye strain or visual acuity disorders.

    How Does Lutein Support Eye Health?

    Of all the carotenoids, lutein is preferred for eye health.Lutein is naturally present in the macula and the lens of the eye where it prevents photo-oxidation. Macular Degeneration and cataract formation are major eye problems in an aging population. There is good evidence that suggests that additional lutein may inhibit these eye disorders. The incidence of cataracts in 50,000 women was studied over 8 years. Those who had five servings of lutein-rich spinach per week had a 50% lower incidence of cataracts. (Hankinson, et al.) In a study that evaluated the relationship between dietary carotenoids and age-related macular degeneration, researcher noted that lutein and zeaxanthin “were most strongly associated with a reduced risk for AMD.” (Seddon, et al.)

    How Does Multi-Anthocyanidins Support Eye Health?

    The flavonoids found in fruits and vegetables have been a focus of research because they are recognized as potent antioxidants and are powerful free radical scavengers. Multi-anthocyanidins are standardized extracts derived from blueberry, cranberry,elderberry, grape, raspberry, strawberry and of course, bilberry

    How Does Carrot Juice Powder Support Eye Health?

    We have all been told to eat carrots because they are good for the eyes.Long ago folk wisdom was proved true because beta carotene rich carrots provide the vitamin A so essential to the eyes

    How Does Rutin and Quercetin Support Eye Health?

    Quercetin, one of the more prominent bioflavonoids, has anti-inflammatory properties and inhibits free radical production. Including quercetin and rutin in the Eye Factors Formula has a sound nutritional basis. Daniel Mowrey, in Guaranteed Potency Herbs Suggests: “Research over the past twenty years has shown that a major therapeutic treatment for eye disorders can be structured around bilberry. The Physiological properties of bilberry are profound but those properties can be strengthened, augmented, complemented and extended by the addition of certain naturally-occurring nutrients. Chief among these are the flavonoid quercetin, and beta carotene.” (Mowrey

    Bioflavonoids help the absorption and retention of vitamin C, a key free radical scavenger. Bioflavonoids Increase the strength of the capillaries,regulate their permeability, prevent hemorrhages and ruptures in the capillaries and connective tissue.(Dunne) Bioflavonoids benefit the vascular-rich eye area and heightened resistance to infection.
