  • How does BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence improve eye-health? Why do I need BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence?

    Our eyes are the most delicate and sensitive organs we possess and responsible for four-fifths of all the information our brain receives. Thus we tend to rely on our sense of sight more so than other senses.

    External factors, combined with our body’s natural ageing process and our lifestyle can affect the health of our eyes. It is therefore important to have the proper nourishment for our eyes.

    BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence is specially formulated to provide the nutrients to improve eye health. It is power-packed with berries, which are rich in antioxidants, to help protect the eyes from free radical damage, e.g., UV radiation etc. BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence also contains essential nutrients such as Vitamins A, C and E, and Zinc for additional nourishment and protection.

  • I have never heard of antioxidants, anthocyanins, or vitamins’ benefit for eyes. How do these compounds benefit me and how do they make my eyes more radiant and sparkling after I drink your product?

    Human metabolic processes as well as external factors e.g. UV radiation can produce free radicals which readily react with other molecules. Excessive production of free radicals without proper regulation may lead to unwanted oxidative damage. Antioxidants are substances that are able to counter the oxidative effect of free radicals.
    Berries are rich sources of antioxidants e.g. anthocyanins; which play a role in protecting the body, including the eyes. The antioxidants in berries may help to support healthy vision by protecting blood vessels in the eye and shielding the eyes against free radical damage.
