  • I have never heard of antioxidants or anthocyanins. How do these compounds benefit me and how do they make my eyes more radiant and healthy?

    Antioxidants are substances that can prevent oxidative damage from Free Radicals.  Free Radials are particles that can cause damage to our body tissues. They are produced both through contact with our external environment and within our bodies when we metabolize food for energy. Berries, and the vitamins A,C,E and Zinc have been shown to exhibit positive antioxidative effects.

  • I often do close distance work like sewing, reading or staring at a computer screen, for long periods of time. Will BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence be beneficial for me?

    Excess light exposure can increase production of free radicals in the lens and retina. Continuous close distance work can increase visual fatigue and cause difficulty in refocusing. Hence, prolonged usage of the eyes may accelerate oxidative free radical damage.

    BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence is formulated to provide nourishment for the whole body, especially the eyes. It naturally contains potent antioxidants and is fortified with Vitamin A, C and E, and Zinc, to help reduce damage and maintain healthy eyes.

  • If I accidentally opened the bottle and left it in ambient temperature, can it still be taken?

    Our recommendation is for you to consume BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence right after opening the bottle. However, in the event that the product is exposed over a prolonged period and there’s a drastic change in the appearance/ texture of the drink, it means that the product has been affected or may have been contaminated/ turned mouldy. If that is the case, you should discard the product immediately.

  • If I drink other brands of berry concentrate like Ribena on a daily basis, or eat berries regularly, will they be too much for my body to handle? I’m concerned about the side effects of consuming too many berry-based products.

    Berries are known to be rich in Anthocyanins and such foods will benefit the body system rather than create or cause additional health issues. However, berries taken in excess may result in gastric problems, especially for those with sensitive stomachs or those who have a medical history of gastric problems. The individual’s tolerance where gastric problems are concerned is imperative in ascertaining how much of BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence they can withstand. As a rule of thumb, always consume each food in moderation.

    Please seek medical advice if in doubt.
  • If I have a certain eye disorder like dry eyes, myopia, astigmatism, cataract, macular degeneration, night blindness, etc, can I take BRAND’S® InnerShine® Berry Essence?
