maqui berry The treasure of Patagonia

Maqui berry is a native berry that grows in the wild forests of Patagonia in Chile and Argentina. This berry has been consumed from ancient times by indigenous people and is by nature extraordinarily rich in many nutrients and powerful flavonoid species known as anthocyanins. A specific category of these flavonoids, known as delphinidins, are responsible for the very dark purple color of the berries as well as for several health benefits.

Efficacy

Schirmers Test: Tear Fluid Secretion

MaquiBright® has shown significant effects on the increase of tear production and the decrease of bothersome ocular discomforts in clinical studies.

Participants (N=74) using MaquiBright® showed an increase of 89 % in tear fluid production after 4 weeks.

Dry Eye-Related Quality-of-Life Score Questionnaire

A Dry Eye-Related Quality-of-Life Score questionnaire (DEQS) could demonstrate that participants (N=74) using MaquiBright® reported a significant amelioration of 57 % in bothersome ocular discomforts after 4 weeks. 

mode of Action

When the eye suffers from dry eye symptoms, it lacks nutrition and protection. In a study performed with cells of the lacrimal gland, it was shown that MaquiBright® was able to penetrate this tissue and suppress inflammatory processes caused by oxidative stress, restoring the normal production of tears.

optibright® Private Label Product Concept for Natural Tear Fluid Production

optibright® is an oral supplementary double-action solution that combines the power of two clinically proven approaches (MaquiBright® and omega-3 oil) for the maintenance of natural tear fluid production.

MaquiBright® is an anthocyanin-enriched maqui berry extract. Due to its high content in antioxidant phytochemicals, MaquiBright® was shown to restore tear fluid generation by
acting on stressed lacrimal gland cells.

The second component omega-3 oil positively affects meibomian glands lipid layer synthesis, stabilises the tear film and thus prevents evaporation of the aqueous tear fraction.

optibright® relieves dry-eye symptoms originating from different underlying causes by beneficially affecting both tear film generating glands.

The private label product is the winner of the NutraIngredients Award 2019 in the category Omega-3 product of the year.
