Eyebright Description

Nature's Herbs wild countryside Eyebright herb is harvested from its natural wild environment in rich meadows and pastures of Europe. Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis) has been used traditionally for eye inflammations including, conjunctivitis and sties, weeping, stinging, light sensitivity, redness, acute and sub-acute eye infections, eye fatigue, vision disturbances and for the respiratory tract including sinus infections, coughs, sore throat, sinusitis and mucous discharge. Its ability to counter mucus makes it an effective treatment for infectious and allergic conditions affecting the eyes, middle ear, sinuses, and nasal passages.


Eyebright Additional Notes

Eyebright is a popular European herb that has been used since the middle ages. Commonly found throughout the central and eastern parts of Europe, there are over 200 species of Eyebrights, which are generally a creeping, semiparasitic annual crowing to twenty inches. It has tiny oval leaves and small, scallop-edged, white flowers with yellow spots and a black center resembling an eye. It thrives in meadows and open grasslands. The flowerheads are collected during the flowering season in the summer, with July being the prime month.

When it is taken by mouth, eyebright is used to treat respiratory conditions including allergies, bronchitis, colds, and sinusitis. Astringent chemicals known as tannins contained in eyebright may shrink and tighten the top layers of mucous membranes, thereby reducing mucus secretion, relieving irritation, and improving tissue firmness. As a result, eyebright is thought to help control symptoms such as watery eyes or runny nose associated with allergies. Eyebright also contains chemicals, especially caffeic acid, that may have antibacterial properties. As its name implies, eyebright has also been taken by mouth or used as an eye wash for treating conditions of the eye. The tannins in it may decrease eye inflammation, as well as making a protective film over the surface of the eye. The caffeic acid may act as an anti-infective agent.


Eyebright Recommended Use

As an addition to the daily diet, take 1-2 capsules 3 times daily with a full glass of water.
