When my Mother was diagnosed with macular degeneration and glaucoma I started researching for herbal supplements that would be beneficial for her. I came across some excellent information and research regarding Blueberries and decided to create a combination for her.
Blueberries, Bilberries and Elderberries not only taste good but provide excellent nutrition for the eyes. These berries are rich in lutein, vitamin C, and bioflavonoids essential for eye health.
Not only do our eyes need rest and exercise, they need nutrients that are specific to them. As a bonus, "Blueberries are a super food for your brain. They're high in vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants called flavonoids (also called polyphenols). In your brain, flavonoids interact with proteins and enzymes in ways that keep your brain younger. Scientists don't know exactly how all those elements play together, but blueberry flavonoids do seem to keep you smarter. People who eat a high-flavonoid diet stay sharper than folks with low-flavonoid diets. In fact, drinking blueberry juice daily can improve your memory function by 30%." (*source RealAge.com)
So have a good time and load up on them!
