Be it in the office or at home, more and more people are working behind computer screens, making an increasing number of people prone to computer-related health complications. While some may think nothing of it, over 90% of computer and device users experience computer vision syndrome, aka digital eye strain. Symptoms include decreased or blurred vision, light sensitivity, stinging or burning eyes, and back/neck pain. Read on to learn which natural supplements can help serve a need for so many individuals by minimizing the above symptoms and more.
The in-office to virtual shift COVID-19 certainly had its effects on the American workforce. Today, over 4.7 million people work remotely at least half the time in the United States, and globally, 16% of companies are exclusively remote. This means more eyes staring at computer screens at least 8 hours a day. And when work overlaps with life, you can tack on a few more hours, putting even more strain on the eyes, body, and mind.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition in which a pinched wrist nerve is compressed due to repetitive motion with the hands. This compression can affect how we work, as it causes pain while gripping the mouse and typing, and can move into weakness, numbness, and tingling in the palms and fingers, making its way up the arm and to the shoulder.
Private Label Vitamins Manufactured for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
While dietary supplements are not intended to treat, cure, or prevent any diseases, they definitely help nerve pain. Vitamins B2 and B6 are most often used for carpal tunnel, as they have shown positive effects for those who suffer from the condition, especially when combined. B2 is required for the conversion of B6 (pyridoxine) into its active form (pyridoxal 5’-phosphate). There are also promising effects from supplementing with Vitamin D, as lower levels of the nutrient are linked to cases of carpal tunnel syndrome.
If you are an acupuncturist or doctor, you may wish to conduct your own research for clinical results. That way, you can directly list on the packaging of your dietary supplement that contains Vitamins B2 and B6 and D the clinically backed claims which will draw more consumers in and raise your brand’s credibility.
Eye health in jeopardy
Eye fatigue, blue light exposure, and eye strain have consequences like the development of cataracts and other conditions. With over 90% of computer and device users suffering from eye problems connected to screentime, your private label supplements, manufactured with top-notch quality ingredients, could steer customers in the right direction.
Private Label Supplements for Better Eye Health
Bilberry has been demonstrated to help a number of eye conditions, including glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Recent research proves bilberry’s agency in eye fatigue. In a study, 83 people between the ages of 20 and 40 took either 160 mg of bilberry extract three times a day for eight weeks or a placebo. All participants played video games for two hours. Changes in vision were considerably reduced in the group taking the bilberry extract. In addition, eye pain, heaviness, and fatigue were all significantly reduced compared to the placebo group. Another study observed the potential of ginkgo biloba, which has proven itself effective in benefitting glaucoma and macular degeneration. Last but not least, lutein, a carotene, is another powerful nutrient for you to manufacture into a high-quality eye vitamin. A study involving 37 people who were exposed to long-term computer display lights received either 6 g or 12 g of lutein, or a placebo. After 12 weeks, the 12 g of lutein group experienced improvement in contrast sensitivity.
Stress from computers
More computer time equates to increased risk of fatigue, irritability, and stress. When 84 people who spend at least 50% of their workday on computers were administered ginkgo biloba, they made fewer mistakes than people who were given a placebo. These subjects did not only concentrate better but experienced much less stress and reported a better overall feeling. The same was concluded about Panax ginseng.
Custom Formula Time
So, you have many options when it comes to formulating your custom supplement or vitamin for health eye. Most people working on the computer experience at least one negative effect from staring all day long at the screen. You can also think outside the box and consider bone and joint products or energy-enhancing supplements for people who work behind the desk. Fingers are just as much at risk of arthritis as knees and hips. Inflammation is a threat when body parts are worked too much and don’t receive proper rest, care, or nutritional support.
Educating the Customer
People may simply be unaware of the risk they are taking by not paying closer attention to their mental and physical state. They may not realize how irritable they have become due to digital activity, which could interfere with their relationships and quality of life. If consumers can’t change their current work situation with the computer, then you can encourage them to seek supplements manufactured by a trustworthy source, such as your private label brand. You can do this through brand awareness and marketing, not only aiding their eye health, but teaching them to set aside some time to decompress from work stress.
