Reference While lutein is more commonly associated supporting eye health, anthocyanins derived from bilberry has been reported to have vasorelaxing effects by increasing nitric oxide, and astaxanthin has been suggested to improve blood flow by inhibiting the oxidative damage of erythrocyte membranes via the inhibition of lipid peroxidation on cell membranes. Improvements in blood circulation might also contribute to relaxation of the accommodative function related muscles of the eye, say the researchers.
Kizawa Y et al. ““Effects of anthocyanin, astaxanthin and lutein on eye functions: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study.” Journal of Clinical Biochemistry and Nutrition, Published online ahead of print on February 5, 2021 “Work at visual display terminals is a very common cause of visual fatigue. It is estimated that over 60% of visual display terminal users experience eye symptoms while more than 20% experience other issues like musculoskeletal problems,” said Yanmei Li, PhD, global chief scientific officer for BGG, in a press release. “Given the millions of people using visual display terminals these conditions affect a substantial percentage of the population. We are very excited about the eye health benefits by this synergistic formula that is adding clinical evidence to support such a common discomfort.”
