With age, eyes lose their ability to see as clearly as they did in younger years. This can be linked to the health of the central part of the eye - called the macula.
The macula lies in the center of our eye and has the highest density of light sensing cells which is why it is responsible for central, sharp vision. It looks yellow because it’s rich in yellow color pigments such as zeaxanthin and lutein, which absorb light.
However, the macula is also most vulnerable to damage, especially from frequent exposure to the sun’s UV radiation. Frequent UV exposure from the sun is associated with the accumulation of waste products (drusen) in the back of the eye and depigmentation of retinal cells, including the macula. Often AMD starts with the accumulation of those waste products. Over time, this can damage light sensing cells and their light absorbing pigments and therefore cause them to be less functional and die, which in turn translates to gradual vision loss. Luckily, we can find color pigments in foods like carrots, blueberries and dark green vegetables to help maintain eyesight in these conditions.
BLUE BERRY TABLETS
Blue Berry has been the no.1 eye supplement in Scandinavia for over a decade. The Blue Berry tablets contain color pigments from blueberries and lutein, to help improve macular pigment optical density and help maintain your eyesight in conditions of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
"My name is Madeleine and I live in Montreal. In my spare time, I enjoy time in nature, painting beautiful landscapes. In my later years, my eyes began to weaken. I was very sad about this, because painting requires accurate vision. When I went to my optometrist, he diagnosed me as having age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and told me this unfortunately gets worse with time. “In a magazine I read an ad about Blue Berry, and
a man who had maintained his eye health. In hopes of getting the same results, I bought a box and started the same day. Now, I have been taking Blue Berry for almost a year, and I am very happy with the product. I am back to painting and my mood has been lifted. I am happy I found this product from New Nordic, and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take good care of their eyes.”
NATURALLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS
(Vaccinium myrtillus L.)
This special blueberry species contains higher levels of anthocyanins, or the deep purple pigment compared to other blueberry species.
LUTEIN (Marigold flower)
(Tagetes erecta L.)
Lutein is a pigment that is naturally found in dark green leafy vegetables and the marigold flower. Light sensing cells in the eye use this pigment to absorb light and protect from damaging free radicals.
DAILY DOSE (ADULTS): Take 2 tablets daily with a meal.
