Supports optimal vision and eye health using 3 of the most popular herbs:
A popular herb in Europe for use during inflammatory eye conditions. It acts as an astringent, meaning that eyebright decreases eye secretions such as mucus and tears. It is also an anti-inflammatory, which decreases swelling and redness in and around the eye. Eyebright is recommended by natural health practitioners for conjunctivitis (pink eye), blepharitis, eye fatigue and allergic eye symptoms.
Lutein and zeaxanthin work in the eye as antioxidants. Cataracts are caused by free radical damage of the lens of the eye and therefore lutein and zeaxanthin can treat cataracts. Studies show that they also protect the eye from damage and can reduce the incidence of eye disease such as macular degeneration.
This antioxidant rich herb contains important phytochemicals, particularly anthocyanidins, that are believed to provide up to fifty times the antioxidant protection of Vitamin E and ten times that of vitamin C. Furthermore, Bilberry's antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals and reduce damage to vessels all over the body, including those in the eye. Cataracts are caused by free radical damage in the lens of the eye and therefore bilberry can treat cataracts. Other eye problems that are also helped by bilberry are: macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, night blindness and myopia. Bilberry has anti-aging properties because as an antioxidant it protects the body against environmental pollutants other substances that and lead to aging. Bilberry also stabilizes the connective tissue called collagen. Thus it is beneficial for conditions of collagen instability in the vascular system such as varicose veins, phlebitis and heart disease. Finally, bilberry inhibits blood clotting and can be useful to increase circulation in cases of atherosclerosis and diabetes.
What Causes Vision Loss?
The eye is a very important sensory organ, which is shown by the fact that a large area of our brain is committed to taking in and understanding visual information. Up to 70% of all of the sensory receptors in the body are in the eyes. Problems with the eyes become more common as we age.
There two main causes of degenerative eye conditions:
- Free radical damage
- Decreased blood flow to the eye
Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage. This can cause cell death, alterations in genetic material and autoimmune reactions to damaged cells. Food, water and ultraviolet radiation from the sun are the major contributors of free radicals that build up in the eye.
The eyes reflect the overall health of the body. The vessels on the back of the eyeball are very small and fragile. Changes in them are often the first sign of cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension and atherosclerosis. These conditions lead to decreased blood flow to the retina. Lack of oxygen and an accumulation of waste products eventually compromises vision.
Poor diet, environmental toxins, medications and stress all decrease the body's ability to neutralize free radicals and maintain healthy vessels. This can result in eye degeneration, occurring in cataracts, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.
