Background and Use

EYEBRIGHT has been used traditionally, since the middle Ages, for the support of eye fatigue and vision. According to old text of the "Old Doctrine of Signatures," the purple and yellow spots and stripes of Eyebright resemble bloodshot eyes, which was an early indicator of the plants intended herbal use.

Documented cases of BILBERRY show its use back in the 12th and again in the 18th century. Bilberry fruit has also been traditionally used as a traditional remedy in the prevention of scurvy, due to its vitamin C content. The modern use of Bilberry for eye health originates from World War II. British Royal Air Force pilots reported that the ingestion of Bilberry jam just prior to missions seemed to improve their vision.

Eyes are susceptible to the effects of sun exposure, free radicals and aging. Unlike our berry-eating ancestors, most people don't get enough of the antioxidants that are known to protect the eye. Anthocyanosides, as supplied in this formulation, are antioxidants which have been the focus of numerous clinical trials.
