Vizu-All Plus is a 100% herbal formula which contains the following carefully selected herbs in therapeutic dosage:
- Vaccinium Myrtillus (also known as billberry)is the principal ingredient in Vizu-All Plus. Use of Bilberry dates back to World War II, when pilots in Britain's Royal Air Force reported that a good dose of bilberry jam just before a mission improved their night vision, often dramatically! After the war, medical researchers investigated the constituents of bilberry and found a group of active chemicals called anthocyanosides. These naturally occurring antioxidants appear to have numerous potentially important actions within the eye. (Cluzel C, Bastide P, Wegman R, et al. "Enzymatic activities of retina and anthocyanoside extracts of Vaccinium myrtillus" (lactate dehydrogenase, alpha-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase, 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, alpha-glycerophosphate dehydrogenase, 5-nucleotidase, phosphoglucose isomerase [translated from French]. Biochem Pharmacol. 1970;19:2295-2302). By supporting routine strength of the tiny blood vessels of the eye, bilberry also helps to facilitate delivery of essential oxygen and nutrients to the eye and has been the subject of numerous research studies related to ocular health. Studies have also suggested that certain eye symptoms, normally associated with the natural aging process can be effectively managed using bilberry. (G. Bravetti, "Preventive Medical Treatment of Senile Cataract with Vitamin E and Anthocyanosides: Clinical Evaluation," Ann Ottalmol Clin Ocul 115 (1989): 109). In addition, Vaccinium myrtillus has been shown to be of great benefit with regards to supporting eye health when particular underlying conditions are present. (Perossini, M. et al. 1987. "Diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy therapy with Vacciniuum myrtillus anthocyanosides" (Tegens): Double blind placebo controlled clinical trial. Ann Ottalmol Clin Ocul 113:1173).
- Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos) is found only on the slopes of the Cedarberg mountains in the Western Cape of South Africa and has been used as a natural medicine for thousands of years by the indigenous people of that area. It is used as an all round supportive tonic, to help support digestive health, encourage healthy liver functioning and promote healthy blood sugar levels. Like bilberry, Rooibos also has powerful anti-oxidant properties, mainly due to its supeoxide dismutase (SOD) mimetic properties. SOD is an enzyme in the body that is especially designed to neutralize unstable oxygen molecules (free radicals) as soon as they occur and systemic SOD can therefore help to promote visual health. (Kim, S. Y., J. S. Kwak, J. P. Shin and S. H. Lee (1998). "The protection of the retina from ischemic injury by the free radical scavenger EGb 761 and zinc in the cat retina." Ophthalmologica 212(4): 268-74). Due to its high mineral content, (Vitamin C, Alphahydroxy Acid, potassium, copper, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, manganese and fluoride) Rooibos can promote healthy metabolism, bones, skin and teeth. These minerals have been shown to have great benefit with regards to eye health. ("A randomized, placebo-controlled, clinical trial of high-dose supplementation with vitamins C and E, beta carotene, and zinc for age- related macular degeneration and vision loss: AREDS report no. 8." Arch Ophthalmol 119(10): 1417-36). These minerals can also be beneficial in encouraging healthy blood sugar levels, supporting routine blood pressure and as a promotional tonic for the immune system.
- Sutherlandia Frutescens (also traditionally called Kanker Bossie) was originally used by the indigenous Khoi and San peoples of Southern Africa and is indigenous to this region. Research has shown that Sutherlandia contains the active ingredients canavanine, pinitol, and the amino acid GABA. Recent research has confirmed the adaptogenic properties of Sutherlandia as well as its anti-oxidant effects (Swaffer et al. 1995, Crooks and Rosenthal, 1994, Ostlund and Sherman, 1996).
