The curcumin in turmeric is a potential neuroprotective candidate for glaucoma, according to the Glaucoma Foundation, and one pilot study found that taking curcumin slowed progression of the disease. Although no studies have focused specifically on reducing eye pressure, some research has indicated that curcumin reduces the mechanisms that lead to glaucoma, which may indicate reduction of eye pressure is possible. More studies are needed, however, to provide definitive answers. The anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-clotting properties of curcumin are responsible for the beneficial effects that help protect the eyes and vision.**

- The antioxidant activity of curcumin reportedly includes up-regulation of defensive genes and proteins, inhibition of heavy metal-catalyzed lipid, peroxidation by chelating toxic metals, and reduction of nitrite levels attenuates mitochondrial dysfunction by reducing reactive oxygen species. Curcumin was reported to be effective protecting against hippocampal cell death in mice and in the NMDA-induced damage of cultured retinal cells. Curcumin was also reported to be effective against glutamate toxicity in rat cerebral cortical neurons
- Effects of curcumin on pro-inflammatory cytokines have been well documented. (2) Curcumin reportedly inhibits effects of high glucose on lipid peroxication and secretion of cytokines such as TNF-a, IL-6, IL-8 or MCP-1 by cultured monocytes
- Curcumin affects b-amyloid peptide, suppressing oxidative damage and inflammatory signaling pathways.
- Curcumin was reported to ameliorate cataract formation in rats caused by selenium-induced oxidative stress, probably by preventing free-radical-induced accumulation of Ca2+ in the lens
- A diet supplemented with curcumin was also reported effective in ameliorating retinal damage caused by diabetes.
- It protected cells of retina-derived cell lines from H2O2-induced damage by up-regulating cellular protective mechanisms.
About Paradise Herbs & Essentials®
FitEyes knows of no other reputable herbal manufacturer that matches Paradise Herb's full spectrum extraction method combined with raw ingredients of the highest quality and a capsule that is free of fillers and excipients. This is as close to perfection as we have found in a widely available herbal product. For this reason, Paradise Herbs is a feature FitEyes brand that we recommend and trust.
Paradise Herbs & Essentials® Inc. was established in 1994 by our founder and formulator and has been family owned and operated ever since. With a combined experience of over 26 years of training, experience and research in the natural health foods industry along with our founders extensive background in Chinese, Ayurvedic and Euro-Native American herbalism we have established ourselves as a company with big ideas and even higher standards. Our founder has received over ten years of apprentice hands-on training working directly under two Chinese medical doctors with a combined total experience of over sixty years in traditional Chinese medicine.*
At Paradise we know that the end product is only as good as your starting material. We obtain our herbs from special alliances we have built all over the world. Our herbs are grown where they are indigenous; either ethically and ecologically wild crafted or naturally cultivated without the use of any chemical fertilizers, pesticides or preservatives.*
For example: Our Ayurvedic herbs Turmeric, Ashwagandha and Holy Basil are from an isolated and pristine environment at the base of the Himalayans, or we obtain our Ginger from the Ecuadorian rain forest where it is ethically wild crafted. It is this total combination of factors: climate, soil, pristine and natural growing environment that produce the outstanding quality of all our herbs. But we don’t stop there.*
Our end product after extraction is a True Full Spectrum™ extract, although we measure standard marker compounds in most of our extracts we never fractionate or isolate. We believe in keeping all the synergistic components in the balanced ratios nature intended. We know that in many cases it is not evident which components are to be credited for the clinical effect, or if several components must act synergistically, therefore the whole root extract is always regarded as the active ingredient. It is a central philosophy of traditional herbalism to trust in the wisdom of nature to provide the most complete medicines for humans. Unlike the conventional Pharmaceutical Industry that has sought to isolate compounds to create new drugs, we believe the whole herb is the medicine and is supplying all the benefits. For example, studies have shown that a True Full Spectrum™ herbal extract of Panax Ginseng consistently outperforms an extract comprising only isolated ginsenosides. This illustrates that polysaccharides and other active constituents in Ginseng play an integral role in its clinical efficacy. Also, research analysis reveals a component in Panax Ginseng called panaxydol to inhibit cell cycle progression of human malignant tumor cells. We believe this is scientific proof for True Full Spectrum™ preparations as compared to fractionated isolates only containing the ginsenosides and possibly lacking some of the benefits.*
Our production facility is NSF certified to meet all cGMP requirements according to FDA standards. All operations are carefully documented, including in-process quality assurance checks. Equipment use/cleaning logbooks, and standard operating procedures are followed scrupulously to avoid any form of contamination or non-compliance.*
HEPA filters not only condition the air by removing moisture, they function at 95% efficiency down to 5 microns, eliminating microbial and cross-contamination. This system introduces clean air into the room creating a positive pressure which ensures that only the cleanest air contacts ingredients and finished goods.*
WE NEVER USE FILLERS OR FLOW AGENTS.
We do NOT use any flow agents or fillers such as magnesium stearate. Please refer to our link as to why we pride ourselves on delivering filler free products. Why we are filler free.
Common fillers or flow agents like magnesium stearate, calcium stearate or stearic acid are hydrogenated oils (trans fats). Not only are these oils unhealthy, they coat the capsule ingredients with a layer of saturated fat hindering nutrient absorption. Some studies we have seen list this hindrance to be as high as 80%. Doing the math on this, that cuts down nutrient contents utilized to 20%, not very good to say the least.*
All labels conform to all applicable DSHEA labeling laws.*
These standards of excellence will leave you with a finished product you can feel safe and confident consuming.*
