Blackmores Bilberry Eyestrain Relief (30)

Blackmores Bilberry helps maintain eye health by supporting healthy function of the retina. Blackmores Bilberry also helps to improve night vision and assists the eye to adjust in poor light. Blackmores Bilberry may help reduce the risk of damage to the microcirculation of the eye.

Features and benefits

  • Standardised potency, containing 16.2 mg of anthocyanosides
  • Anthocyanosides have been shown to exhibit antioxidant properties and to assist in capillary function and integrity

How it works

The actions of Bilberry are primarily due to its content of flavonoid compounds known as anthocyanosides, and research has centred on these compounds. The antioxidant activity of the herb is of interest for those eye conditions that are related to free radical damage, where they may offer some protection. Bilberry also has the ability to normalise capillary permeability and may be protective against eye conditions of circulatory origin and other varicose conditions generally. Other indications for the herb include improved night vision.

Bilberry may also be of benefit for those performing fine detail work, or having a heavy demand on the visual process eg: airline pilots, students, computer terminal operators, and night drivers. It is presumed that its action in these circumstances relates to its ability to help maintain rhodopsin stores which may be depleted during periods of extended visual work.
