Are there herbal supplements for the eyes?

There are a number of natural supplements on the market today that are formulated specifically for eye health.  Some are more effective than others, and ingredients vary widely from one product to another.

One that we are impressed with is called Vizu-All Plus and it contains all natural herbs that can promote and maintain eye function, strengthen eye blood capillaries, help with retina adjustment and prevent glaucoma and macular degeneration.

Another good option either alone or in conjunction with Vizu-All Plus is a high quality fish oil.  As we mention above the omega 3 fatty acids present in fish oil are wonderful for the eyes, preventing issues from occurring and strengthening the blood vessels of the eye. Take a look at our Heart Health section for more information on fish oil.
