Retinopathy, especially if diabetes-related, is the leading cause of blindness in the U.S. Preventing this condition requires long-term dietary management as well as additional lifestyle changes. Bilberry is known to improve eyesight thanks to its richness in anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant. In addition, it has been found to mildly lower blood sugar levels. With a splash of refreshing, vitamin A-rich juice extracted from the passion fruit, you're in for a pleasant medicinal brew.

  1. Bring water to a rapid boil.
  2. Add the dried bilberry and reduce to very low.
  3. Let simmer over very low heat.(30 minutes)
  4. Remove from heat and add the passion fruit juice.
  5. Administer.

Drink at least two cups of this bilberry infusion for improving vision a day. You can let it cool and add ice cubes for a refreshing iced tea alternative.
