The Bilberry is a blue coloured berry that resembles the colour and shape of the more commonly known blueberry. The Bilberry grows on the Vaccinium myrtillus, a shrub which grows to 40cm. The origin of the Bilberry is difficult to pinpoint, but it is thought to have originated from Scandinavia to Scotland to Northern Asia. The Bilberry contains high levels of anthocyanins, a purple pigment, which is associated with antioxidants. The Bilberry promotes the health of the micro-vasculature that surrounds the eye, stimulating the circulation of fluid.
The Grape Seed used in this tablet is extracted from the Vitis vinifera, colloquially known as the Grape. Grapes grow in the Mediterranean, Central Europe and certain parts of Aisa, growing up to 18m long. As the name suggests, Grape Seed is extracted from the fruit of the vine. Contrary to what many believe, the Grape is actually a berry. Grape Seeds contain two polyphenols; Grape Antioxidant Dietary Fibre (GADF) and Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin Complexes (OPC). These are potent antioxidants that protect tissues by scavenging harmful free radicals which damage DNA, proteins and lipids.
Lutein is a carotenoid, obtained from the marigold flower. Lutein provides a yellow pigment but can appear to be red in high concentrations. Lutein is one of 600 natural carotenoids, but it is only one of a few carotenoids that offer health benefits in addition to its colourful trait. Carotenoids are a plant-based form of Vitamin A. Lutein is converted into retinol and retinal which aid the maintenance of vision and prevent night blindness as a result of Vitamin A deficiency.

My nutritional therapist recommended I use these after I was diagnosed with papilloedema and have had noticeable vision loss in my left eye over the last two years. She highly rated the high dose bilberry and lutein combination. I've been using these for approx 4-5 months and things do seem a little sharper vision-wise, all though I can't expect things to go back to normal completely, there are high hopes this will help to slow down the deterioration process. Thanks Just Herbs - I really like your products and definitely feel the benefit.
