Whether you’re a pilot, student, night driver or spend a lot of time in front of your computer or doing close work, if you suffer with eye strain then you might want to take a closer look at the benefits of Bilberries.

Are you suffering Screen Fatigue?

In today’s fast paced world, we are all becoming increasingly more reliant on computers and mobile devices than ever before, all of which places stress on our eyes. This unnatural activity, of constantly looking at screens can cause eye fatigue and eyestrain, as well as headaches in some individuals. The good news is that clinical trials have shown that Bilberry can help reduce these symptoms. Bilberry has been used for centuries as a traditional medicine. In World War II pilots used bilberries as a tonic to aid visual acuity (sharpness) and to improve the eyes’ adjustment to both dark conditions and glare. In more recent times, research into this special berry 
has revealed that the biologically active components - the anthocyanosides hold the key to its beneficial eye health effects.

Antioxidants from Bilberries bring relief

Bilberries Photo The anthocyanosides in Bilberries are powerful antioxidants that have been shown to increase the strength and reduce the permeability of the capillaries and in this way bilberry helps to reduce damage to the microcirculation of the eye. Anthocyanosides also help you to see in dim light. According to results of a recent small study published in Biomedical Research, Bilberry works best for eyestrain when combined with fish oil and lutein. After four weeks of supplementation eyestrain and mental fatigue were significantly improved.
