New Study: CurrantCraft® European Black Currant Extract Can Help Vision Fatigue

Exciting data from a new study reinforces the clinical vision benefits of CurrantCraft® European Black Currant Extract. Experts at the Franklin Health Research Center (Franklin, TN) conducted an independent investigation into the effects of Artemis International CurrantCraft® ingredient on symptoms of digital eye fatigue.

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial studied the effects of black currant extract supplementation on 61 adult females who worked or studied 6 hours or more per day in front of a screen, split into intervention and placebo groups.Intervention group participants consumed two capsules of standardized black currant extract each day for ten weeks (totaling 445 mg per day), while placebo group consumed two identical, yet inert placebo capsules each day, also for ten weeks.

Trial participants in the intervention group saw statistically significant results, a 29.9% reduction in symptoms of blurry vision. Overall, the results showed that black currant supplementation fostered remarkable improvement in digital eye fatigue. Findings could drive a larger future study to identify additional potential benefits at statistically significant levels.
