BGG Announces Results of a Human Clinical Study on a Synergistic Formula for Eye Health Containing MyrtiPro® Bilberry, AstaZine® Natural Astaxanthin and Lutein

IRVINE, Calif., May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — BGG World (BGG) announced today that a new clinical trial1 conducted as a collaboration between BGG and one of Japan’s leading supplement brands was successfully completed and published on a synergistic combination containing 200mg MyrtiPro® BGG’s standardized bilberry extract containing 36% of anthocyanins by HPLC, 6mg Astazine® Natural Astaxanthin, and 10mg Lutein.  The registered, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was done on 44 healthy subjects experiencing eye fatigue during visual display terminal operations supplemented for six weeks.  Statistically significant results were found in the treatment group on key areas of eye health including:

  • Improved visual acuity (ability to see fine print and details)
  • Reduction of trouble focusing the eyes
  • Improvement in the percentage of pupillary response after use of visual display terminals

BGG’s Global Chief Scientific Officer, Yanmei Li, PhD, noted “Work at visual display terminals is a very common cause of visual fatigue. It is estimated that over 60% of visual display terminal users experience eye symptoms while more than 20% experience other issues like musculoskeletal problems. Given the millions of people using visual display terminals these conditions affect a substantial percentage of the population. We are very excited about the eye health benefits by this synergistic formula that is adding clinical evidence to support such a common discomfort.”
