Cyanthox™ supports healthy retinal photo-oxidative exposure response
Design: Randomised, controlled trial was conducted in 32 rabbits weighing from 2.5kg to 3.0kg. The rabbits were exposed to light at 18,000lx for 2 hours.
Dosage: Oral intake of 100mg 38.9% sea buckthorn proanthocyanidins(SBOPC)/kg/day for 14 days before exposure and 7 days after exposure.
Result: Protective effect against visible light-induced retinal degeneration
Helps preserve the retinal structure
Significant suppression of decrease in Outer Nuclear Layer (ONL) thickness and full thickness of retina
Outer Nuclear Layer Thickness
-VE Control group
100mg SBOPC Group
Attenuates damages to photoreceptor cell function
Significant Improvement of scotopic, photopic and max electroretinogram functions
Conclusion: 100mg 38.9% sea buckthorn proanthocyanidins(SBOPC)/kg/day prevents retinal photo-oxidative damage related diseases

Cyanthox™ is 5 times more effective than bilberry anthocyanins extract
Design: Randomised, controlled trial was conducted in 40 healthy rabbits weighing from 2.5 to 3.0kg. The rabbits were exposed to light at 18,000lx for 2 hours.
Dosage: Oral intake of 500mg 41.0% bilberry anthocyanins(BAE)/kg/day for 14 days before exposure and 7 days after exposure.
Result: 500mg 41% bilberry anthocyanins shows similar effects as 100mg 38.9% sea buckthorn proanthocyanidins.
The same level of reduction in Outer Nuclear Layer (ONL) thickness
9% more Improvement in photopic electroretinogram functions
Similar Improvement in scotopic and max electroretinogram functions
Conclusion: Sea buckthorn proanthocyanidins is 5.3 times more potent than bilberry anthocyanin
