Herbal and nutritional supplement for full spectrum eye support and blue light damage intervention.
While we are young, our eyes generally serve us very well, but as we age, our eyesight can suffer. Keeping the eyes healthy is primarily the job of the circulatory system, which nourishes the eyes and removes metabolic wastes through the finest network of capillaries in the human body. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the eyes are closely linked with the organs of the circulatory system, including the liver, kidneys, and heart. Keeping these organs nourished and healthy is critical to maintaining healthy eyes. Other factors that may contribute to reduced vision are UV and/or blue light damage. Blue light is emitted from energy efficient light bulbs and the various electronic devices we use daily, such as T.V.’s, computers, tablets, and cellphones. While UV light reaches only the front parts of the eye, blue light reaches the more complex and delicate parts of the back of the eye and has shown to be a common factor leading to reduced visual acuity.
The eyes are possibly one of the most delicate organs in the human body. Within the eye, there are 4 main components that contribute to sight: The cornea, the transparent film in the center of the eye where light enters. The lens, which helps focus the light and project it on the retina. The retina, that converts the light into a neural signal that begins to become an image. And finally, the optical nerve that is responsible for transmitting these signals to the brain. Each of these components is susceptible to age. However, the retina is especially important. The most intricate component of the retina is the macula, an oval-shaped area in the center of the retina. The macula contains a macular pigment which is responsible for clear vision (especially with fine details), seeing the contrast of objects against backgrounds, balancing light sensitivity and glare recovery. Macular pigment is comprised of the carotenoids; Lutein, Zeaxanthin, and Meso-zeaxanthin. These carotenoids act like sunglasses in protecting the eye from harmful blue light and free radical damage and must be present in sufficient amounts in order to protect eyesight as we age.
Keeping the eyes healthy can be as simple as modifying habits or improving diet or supplementing as needed. Reducing electronic screen time when possible, avoiding electronics or reading in low-light conditions, or doing eye exercises every 30-60 minutes are all helpful. Eating a diet rich in antioxidants such as berries, dark leafy greens, nuts, etc. also helps support eye health. Lutein and Zeaxanthin can be found in a wide array of food sources but are highest in dark leafy greens (especially kale, spinach, and collards), broccoli, eggs, corn and, peas, etc. Supplements can also be a quick and easy way to replenish the essential nutrients and give the eyes the full support they need. RidgeCrest Herbals EssentialEyes was designed to provide the eyes with essential nutrients and help strengthen the circulatory system and other organs related to the eyes. EssentialEyes contains the VisionAid original herbal blend which is an ancient Chinese herbal formula (pa-wei-ti-huang-wan, or Rehmannia Eight formula) dating to about 220 A.D., and traditionally used for “kidney yang deficiency conformation” (supporting circulation and kidney energy). However, research over the last 50 years has also shown it to be effective for a variety of eye health concerns due to aging. In addition to the original formula, RidgeCrest has added the Maculink Vision Complex that includes herbal anti-oxidant, and visual support as well as Lutemax 20/20 which contains the essential amounts of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-zeaxanthin needed daily to maintain healthy macular pigment. EssentialEyes helps fight blue light damage, defends macular and retinal health, helps to minimize electronic eye strain, and support low-light vision. EssentialEyes is for all ages, from 30+ when visual decline may begin occurring naturally to younger generations that find themselves wrapped up in the continual use of electronics. It is especially recommended for individuals with careers that require a lot of computer use or optimal vision maintenance such as pilots, military, artists, architects, cosmetologists, surgeons, drivers and many, many more.
Because eyesight is is precious to all, EssentialEyes has partnered with "Lutein For Every Age", a campaign designed to raise awareness about eye health and provide customers with training and information. Please visit www.luteinforeveryage.com for further information.
VisionAid Herbal Blend (Traditional Chinese formula combined to strengthen and support the liver, kidneys, and spleen that are linked to healthy eye function.)
Complex formulas are good, but creating new ones isn’t easy. When combining ingredients in a formula, Chinese herbal medicine teaches that you can use a smaller dose than if the same ingredient were used alone— but the selection of ingredients, their proportions, and the correct dose of the entire formula is mostly left to trial and error.
In western medicine, the situation is much worse - these small doses are termed “sub-therapeutic”, are generally considered ineffective, and are almost never tested, much less used in treatment.
Portfolio Formulation™ is a unique (patent pending) way to create complex formulas.
It gets its name from the financial world, because it is similar to the methods good financial planners use, creating diversified “portfolios” for more predictable benefits with lower risk.
We begin by selecting ingredients with similar main effects, but dissimilar side effects. When we combine these ingredients in specified proportions, the main effects of each ingredient are “stacked”, resulting in a powerful but predictable effect; while the side effects don’t stack, because they are different for each ingredient.
Homeopathy works well with herbs, but it can use up to 25% of the available capsule space. Herbs can be bulky, and need all the capsule space they can get.
With our unique (patent pending) Homeoactive™ encapsulation, we build the homeopathic ingredients directly into the encapsulation process, leaving the entire usable capsule space available for herbs. This makes our homeopathic and herbal formulas the most potent anywhere, with fewer and smaller capsules to swallow.
Every medicine (or medicinal ingredient) has at least one effect that we desire, which is why we take it.
But that effect can vary greatly from one individual or condition to another, and a medicine that works well for one person, may not work so well for another.
Each medicine or ingredient may also have unwanted side effects, which can also vary from one person to another—so one person may get great benefits with few side effects, while another gets only side effects but no real benefit.
A good over-the-counter medicine is one that works pretty well for most people, and hopefully has few serious side effects. This one-medicine-fits-all, or “silver bullet” approach, has been the basis of western medicine for the last hundred years or more.
Complex formulas are different, and though they are common in oriental medicine, they are less familiar here. Complex formulas use small doses of many ingredients, rather than large doses of one or two.
Although people still react differently to each ingredient, complex formulas are more effective for more people—people who don’t respond much to one ingredient are likely to respond better to others. And because the dose of each ingredient is smaller, there is less chance of serious adverse reactions, side effects, and drug interactions.
Well-designed complex formulas, like a complex diet, just work better than large doses of one or two ingredients. RidgeCrest Herbals products are complex—our simplest formulas have four or five ingredients, and some have over forty. Complex formulas are more expensive to create and manufacture than simple ones, since we have to test dozens of ingredients, not just one or two. But the results are worth the extra effort.
Some of these disciplines, like TCM and Eclectic medicine, overlap in many ways, and round each other out. Others, like homeopathy and herbs or nutrition, reinforce each other, making for real synergy—where a combination is more than the sum of its parts.
Our multi-disciplinary approach develops this potential synergy.
Many health conditions are caused or made worse by nutritional deficiencies. Our modern western diet is not varied enough to provide good nutrition for most people.
In fact, the US Department of Agriculture reports that the nutritional value of many fruits and vegetables is less than half what it was in 1948, when they started keeping records.
Vitamins, trace minerals, and other nutritional supplements can contribute greatly to good health, especially when tailored to individual conditions and needs.
