Natural Eye Care has created a new antioxidant supplement, “Dr. Grossman’s Bilberry/Ginkgo Combination Wild Crafted Extract Formula” to help support vision health and circulation. These natural extracts contain powerful antioxidants that counteract free radicals. The formula is designed to help prevent cellular damage, and even reverse it. Many eye diseases, including macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma, are rooted in cellular damage from free radicals.1 2
Bilberry for Vision
A relative of the blueberry, bilberry contains flavonoids. Flavonoids are potent antioxidants. They repair damaged tissue and strengthen blood vessels. Research has shown that bilberry could be useful for macular degeneration (ARMD), diabetic retinopathy, and night vision disorders. This fruit may even slow the formation of cataracts, possibly because it protects the eyes from the sun’s damaging blue light.
Ginkgo for Circulation
Ginkgo Biloba is common herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Ginkgo is prized for its special plant nutrients that improve blood circulation throughout the body, including the eyes. This herb supports balanced intraocular pressure, important for glaucoma patients. Research has linked Ginkgo to improved Traumatic Brain Injury outcomes,3, improvement in memory for dementia patients,4 improvements for Macular Degeneration patients,5, and less deterioration from glaucoma.6
Dr. Grossman’s Bilberry/Ginkgo Combination Wild Crafted Extract Formula is made from the highest quality raw ingredients. Available in a 2 oz bottle, the vegetarian supplement contains no chemicals, pesticides, preservatives or filler. Taking just 1/4 tsp two to four times per day by mouth provides the recommended doses of Gingko and Bilberry extracts. The supplement can be used by eye disease patients as an adjunct to their doctor-recommended eye care program. It can also be used by healthy individuals seeking to preserve their vision as they age.
