Hum along to the song and drink this tea knowing it’s helping your eyes!
One of the most recent advances in the use of Bilberry was during World War II. British RAF pilots who used Bilberry jam on their bread seemed to be far more successful at hitting their targets. It helped them with eye fatigue, reduced eye irritation, nearsightedness and night blindness, while extending the range and sharpness of the pilot’s vision. Plus it aided their vision in adapting to darkness by accelerating regeneration of the retina. Bilberry was found to also help restrain the development of conditions such as Glaucoma and Cataracts. Eyebright works as a vaso-constrictor and astringent to the nasal and conjunctiva mucous. It also helps with eyes cloudy and irritated with lacrimation (excessive tears) of watery or stringy mucus. It is known to be a stimulant to the liver and to clean the blood. Rosehips are rich in Vitamin C, D, E, A, and B-complex. They have some Vitamin D and also contain iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, sulfur, and silica. Cardamom maintains the proper functioning of the body’s metabolic activities by stimulating the secretion of various enzymes and hormones. Calendula is diverse in that its anti-infective and anti-inflammatory actions are applicable for both internal and external complaints. Peppermint Leaf increases oxygen in the blood and works to strengthen the entire body. The nutrient most responsible for eye health found in carrots, is called ‘beta-carotene’, and is a ‘carotenoid.’ It is an anti-oxidant that removes damaging free radicals from the cells of the eyes as well as other parts of the body.
