Overview
 

If your eyes become tired or strained from work, driving or from constantly wearing contact lenses, Blueberry Extract offers excellent, natural relief.

The active ingredient, anthocyanins, decrease permeability of the blood vessels and improves the light gathering capabilities of the eye.  Used in conjunction with Premium Eye Care, together they provide natural support against age-related eye problems and eye strain.
 

Other benefits to Blueberry Extract
 
Blueberries have been shown to enhance cognitive function due to their unique ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier.  Blueberries target the area of the brain associated with learning and memory, and they protect neurons by absorbing free radicals that limit the activity of neurotransmitters and electrical impulses necessary for optimal brain function. 
 
What is the active ingredient in Blueberry?
 
Anthocyanins - (an-tho-cye-an-ins). This is found in both the skins and fruit of the blueberry. This active ingredient decreases permeability of the blood vessels and improves the light gathering capabilities of the eye.
 
Ingredients per capsule
 
Each tablet contains an extract from the blueberry fruit, providing 48mg of Blueberry extract.
It also contains 12mg of the active ingredient, Antocyanosides. This is in a base of tableting aids (calcium hydrogen phosphate, cellulose-microcrystalline, silica collidial anhydrous and magnesium sterate)
 
Directions for use
 
Take 2-3 tablets per day with water.

However, this can be taken more intensively if someone has an eye problem. They could take 2 tablets three or four times a day. This dosage should be continued until a marked improvement has been noticed and then they could reduce this to 2 tablets twice a day, until three days after all symptoms go. Blueberry as a nutritional food supplement is something that may be considered as a compliment to any program aimed at improving or maintaining healthy eyesight.
 

Warnings and Precautions 

Always read the label and use as directed, supplementary to a blanked diet. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional. 
Store away from heat, light and moisture. 
Keep out of reach of children. 
 
Is Blueberry suitable for everyone?
 
Unless you have a known allergy to blueberries, this product is suitable for all.

Blueberries: New Thrills for those Over the Hill

 

For centuries, people have enjoyed blueberries for their flavour and colour. In a new research study, animals fed a blueberry extract diet, rich in naturally-derived antioxidants, showed fewer age-related motor changes and outperformed their study counterparts on memory tests. Indeed, blueberries and other foods containing antioxidants may act to protect the body against damage from oxidative stress, one of several biological processes implicated in aging and in the development of a number of degenerative diseases.

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture funded the study. In the study, three groups of older rats were fed a 9-week-long diet supplemented with fruit or vegetable extracts with potential antioxidant effects. A fourth group of animals did not receive the special diet. The group of animals that received the supplements showed some improvement on key indicators of age-related decline. The study was conducted by James Joseph Ph.D. of the US Department of Agriculture, Human Nutrition Research Centre on Aging at Tufts University in Boston, and Paula C. Bickford, Ph.D. of the University of Colorado Health Sciences Centre and the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centre in Denver. The study results appear in the September 15, 1999, issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.*

The animals that received supplements were given either blueberry, strawberry, or spinach extracts. Investigators found that the group of rats that was fed blueberry supplements came out on top in tests of balance and coordination. The two groups given strawberry or blueberry supplements showed the most compelling evidence of protection against oxidative stress in their brains. On tests of working memory, all three groups receiving supplements outperformed their control counterparts.

In addition, the groups receiving supplements all showed signs of the presence of Vitamin E, a key antioxidant, in their brains. "The exciting finding from this study is the potential reversal of some age-related impairments in both memory and motor coordination, especially with blueberry supplements," said Molly Wagtster, Ph.D., a health Scientist Administrator with the NIA's Neuroscience and Neuropsycology of Aging Program. "For these animals at least, investigators were able to produce a noticeable improvement within a relatively short period of time. A next important step in the research will be to see if the improvements are long lasting."
