*Bilberry extract contains anthocyanidins with visual and vascular enhancing properties. Bilberry reduces visual fatigue and improves light to dark adjustment through its affinity for the rhodopsinopsin system, the pigment system which mediates both light and dark vision and visual adaptation to dimly lit spaces. In addition, the extract also has potent antioxidant activity, promoting the retina's own enzymatic antioxidant defenses.
In the vascular system the anthocyanidin extract supports the integrity of vascular walls by increasing vitamin C levels within cells, decreasing the permeabilizing effect of certain proteolytic/ lysosomal enzymes, stabilizing cell membranes, and stimulating the synthesis of collagen and connective ground substance tissue.
Bilberry offers a safe and natural way to enhance the strength and function of the visual and vascular systems.
