Bilberry extract contains anthocyanidins with visual and vascular supporting properties.
Moderates visual fatigue and supports light to dark adjustment through its affinity for the rhodopsin-opsin system, the pigment system which mediates both light and dark vision and visual adaptation to dimly lit spaces.
- The extract promotes the retina’s 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.
