Eye Health, Protection and Support

Computer use has now become a necessary part of modern life and with this brings the rise of computer-related eye problems including eyestrain and eye fatigue. The natural effects of ageing can also cause problems with the circulatory system of the eye. The inclusion of dietary blackcurrant anthocyanins helps promote eye health and good vision particularly relating to working with computers and visual display terminals.

Blackcurrants help Capillary Tone

Blackcurrants assist microcapillary circulation and help with capillary tone and flexibility. A healthy blood flow to the brain is crucial for full mental function and helps maintain focus and mental alertness.

In a study conducted by Ghosh D and associates* of the Horticulture and Food Research Institute of New Zealand Ltd, Palmerston North, Blackcurrant extracts demonstrated protective effects on human cells exposed in the laboratory setting to the hydrogen peroxide oxidative challenge. Anthocyanin and non-anthocyanin fractions of blackcurrant were able to protect cells against hydrogen peroxide-induced cell toxicity effects.

Blackcurrant as an Antioxidant

Blackcurrant anthocyanins also exhibit potent antioxidant activity. Antioxidants help to eliminate free radicals. Consuming dietary antioxidants supports the natural potential of your body to remain healthy and keep youthful and helps to maintain cell integrity in the face of free radical damage.
