Oxidative Stress and Dry Eyes

Oxidative stress can hinder tear production by negatively affecting the cells found in the lacrimal gland. A study found that Super Maqui Plus™ with Delphinol® was able to bring nutrients and provide protection to these cells, reversing and preventing inflammatory processes caused by oxidative stress from occuring.


An initial study to measure how well Super Maqui Plus™ with Delphinol® can help prevent dry eye syndrome from developing versus other berry extracts found that Super Maqui Plus™ performed significantly better. Measuring tear secretion at millimeters per minute scientists found that after 3 days of ventilation, rats that were given Super Maqui Plus™ with Delphinol® maintained fairly normal tear secretion levels. Our extract was then tested on volunteers with dry-eye syndrome, with some receiving 30 mg/day of the extract and others receiving 60 mg/day. The researchers found that after 30 days, both groups experienced significant growth in their tear production levels. The test went on for 30 more days and after the second measurement, researchers found that the subjects that received 60 mg/day maintained high tear production levels while the group that took 30 mg/day saw a decrease in their tear production but maintained levels double that of the baseline measurement.

Highly Bioavailable

A specific delphinidin found exclusively in the Super Maqui™ berry proves to be the most bioavailable by lacrimal gland cells, allowing Super Maqui Plus™ with Delphinol® to be the most effective natural way to combat dry eyes.

Quality of Life

A quality-of-life survey was sent out to various participants with dry eye syndrome. Participants were asked to the severity of their symptoms from 0-4 with 0 being the the lowest severity. Symptoms included dry eyes, ocular fatigue, eye redness, difficulty opening eyes, sensitivity to bright light, and more. After completing the initial survey, participants were instructed to take either 30 or 60 mg/day of Super Maqui Plus™ with Delphinol®. They conducted the same survey two more times, once after 30 days and another after 60. Researchers found that symptom severity was cut by nearly 75% after 60 days of use.
