Support for eye health
• Supports visual function

• Protects and strengthens collagen

Beneficial berries
Bilberries and grapes
are two fruits with many health benefits. Swedish Bilberry contains polyphenols which have been shown to support visual health. These compounds promote the production of rhodopsin, or retinal purple, and prevent its breakdown. This supports the integrity of the eye's structure and improves night vision. Bilberry's extracts also support the structure of the eye's small blood vessels and prevent excessive activity of potentially harmful enzymes in the retina.

Shape up your blood vessels
Both bilberry and grapeskin extracts contain strong antioxidants which help prevent cataracts and macular degeneration, as well as protecting the eye against damage from toxins in polluted air. Bilberry improves the circulation of nutrients to the eye which helps reduce fatigue. Outside the eye, bilberry and grapeskin enhance the strength of collagen, which benefits circulation and helps with varicose veins. Grapeskin has been shown to have anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory actions.

Eye health and beyond
The active nutrients of bilberry and grapeskin are well matched to enhance and protect eye health, and to protect the circulatory system throughout the body.

The components of Bilberry that exert its powerful biological actions are polyphenols called anthocyanins (a.k.a. anthocyanidins) and anthocyanosides. Anthocyanidins are antioxidants, which capture free radicals to prevent cellular damage. They also bind very tightly with collagenous structures in a 5:1 ratio, strengthening the collagen by 10 times against collagenase (an enzyme that breaks down collagen). The applications of Bilberry extracts are incredible, from disease prevention to athletic performance enhancement.

Improving vision
• Night vision.
Bilberry improves night vision by stimulating the production of rhodopsin, also called eye purple, in the retina. The anthocyans are precursors to the rhodopsin, which is an essential element for night vision.

• Cataracts and macular degeneration. Today, growing evidence indicates that free radicals cause cataracts. That means that antioxidants may prevent them.

• Diabetic eye damage. The increased production of rhodopsin, combined with bilberry's capillary-protective effect, work together to improve eye integrity.

• Eye fatigue. Bilberry helps regenerate rhodopsin (retina's pigment). It improves circulation and the flow of nutrients to the eye. Its powerful antioxidants protect against the toxins in polluted air and possible radiation damage from the computer screen.

Circulatory effects
Bilberry interacts directly with collagen fibers, increasing the cross-link between them. Because of this effect on collagen, bilberry strengthens capillary permeability, preventing leakage. It can therefore dramatically improve peripheral circulation. The strengthening of capillaries helps prevent the aggravation of varicose veins. People prone to bruising will benefit from this also.

Grapeskin Chemistry
Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are oligomeric flavonoids. OPCs are found in foods such as grape skin, pine bark and cranberries.

OPCs exhibit the following properties:

(1) Antioxidant activity.
(2) Assist in collagen cross-linking.
(3) Sparing action of Vitamin C.

Pharmacological activity / Clinical benefits.

1.) Protects LDL from oxidation
- Oxidation of LDL is implicated in the development of atherosclerotic plaques.

2.) Antiallergic/Anti-inflammatory activity. OPCs inhibit mast cell degradation (hence prevent the release of histamine, bradykinin and serotonin), which mediates inflammatory and allergic reactions, edema, and other conditions. OPCs also inhibit hyaluronidase activation. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that attacks various tissues during inflammation, depolymerizes hyaluronic acids and is implicated in the permeability of the vascular system and the migration of metastases.

3.) Vascular protection. OPCs have a particular affinity for the arterial walls and thus offer vascular protection. OPCs are potent inhibitors of elastic lamellal, and thus of the weakening of the vessel walls. In Europe, grapeseed extracts have been prescribed to prevent capillary fragility, to heal varicose veins and hemorrhoids and prevent edema.

4.) Ulcer protection. OPCs are effective in preventing the formation of ulcers in animals. Flavonoids have been reported to provide significant protection against NSAIDs.
