Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by outstanding value Excellent product that I take in addition to others that that are helpful for vision. I am a longtime Swanson customer and am impressed with their great selection of quality & well priced products. I appreciate Swanson's commitment to health and making and offering supplements that are affordable. Plus, they stand behind their products with an unparalleled guarantee. May 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for eyes! Having read that black currant is good for the eyes, I was pleased to see these capsules so reasonably priced. Thanks, Swanson, for making this available. September 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I KNOW this helps me After reading about the benefits of taking Black Currant, I knew that this would help me. I value my eyesight and, at my age, I want to make sure I keep it. June 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by EYES ALIVE I read and liked the material I read in Swanson's catalog and on their website about Black Currant for the eyes. I value my eyes very highly; therefore, I have taken a good nutritional supplement program for my eyes for a long time. I buy all my supplements from Swanson, because I like their quality and prices. I decided to add Black Currant to my vision program, because it sounded like it had undergone testing and proof of value for eye health. I only use the best, highest quality, most potent and efficient products, because I want positive results and maximum effectiveness. Toward that end, my vision / eye health program includes Bilberry 250 mg. caps, Lutein 40 mg. caps, Astaxanthin 4 mg. caps (which I am upping to the new 12 mg. capsule in my next order), Zeaxanthin 4 mg., Pantothenic Acid 500 mg., Rutin 500 mg., B-100 Complex, and more. These are not medical claims or statements. I simply read what Swanson's website and catalogs, as well as other reliable holistic sources, say about vision health / nutrition, and I go along with the program. My eye exams are always great with no decline year after year, regardless of age. I want to keep it that way, so I take a proactive approach. Works for me. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The research I've done says this is good for eye sight. I like to see and hope to see all my life. I haven't taken this for long so I haven't noticed any change. I've taken beta-carotene all my life and I think it helps my night vision. December 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Purchase These are easy to take, and you get a lot for your buck. I take these everyday to help improve my vision October 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by These eyes Driving home from work at Midnight on a major freeway means a lot of lights shining in my tired eyes. The Black Currant capsules help my eyes recover quickly from those bright flashes, so I can drive on in the dark more safely. August 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good product! This product is taken daily along with black raspberry capsules and I feel energetic the rest of the day. I would recommend this to my family and friends. July 31, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by I GUESS FOR THE CLAIMS ON THIS PRODUCT I GUESS May 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swanson Black Currant Great product for a great price April 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Black Currant I believe that, in conjuction with Bilberry, helps strengthen eyes March 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eye Opener Black currant really does help one see better at night and this product lives up to the claim. I wouldn't want to drive at night without it. February 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Like It I use this along with Bilberry ( truth be told, I get the bilberry via good-n-natural) but this black currant from swansons greatly compliments the bilberry. Do a internet search on black currant and you'll find lots of literature. This swanson product always arrives promptly, is reasonably priced, and seems to be of general help to my vision; it certainly doesn't hurt anything! December 5, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by thicker hair I have only been taking this for a couple weeks and i can already tell that i am growing thicker hair:-) very happy! March 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swanson Black Currant I take this for the high GLA content. Usually, I take the oil form, but when it's not on sale I go for this. Very low price for what you are getting. If you can't afford the oil form, then give this a try! September 6, 2011
