Vital Life Bilberry helps maintain eye health by supporting healthy function of the retina. It also helps to improve night vision and assists the eye to adjust in poor light. Bilberry may help reduce the risk of damage to the microcirculation of the eye.
Features and benefits
Standardised potency, containing 6.25 mg of anthocyanosides.
Bilberry may be of benefit for those working intensely with their eyes, eg airline pilots, students, computer terminal operators and night drivers; or when doing fine detailed work.
How it works
The key constituents of bilberry are the anthocyanosides. These constituents give bilberry antioxidant properties. In addition the anthocyanosides have been shown to increase the strength and reduce the permeability of the capillaries and in this way bilberry helps to reduce damage to the microcirculation of the eye.
The anthocyanosides in bilberry help to maintain visual acuity (sharpness) and improve night vision through their action on rhodopsin. Rhodopsin is a light sensitive pigment found in the rods of the retina. Rhodopsin is essential for eyesight in dim light and needs to be quickly regenerated in order for the eye to maintain visual sensitivity.
