Bilberry Extract, Standardized
Herbal help for visual acuity problems, vascular disorders, especially
fragile capillaries, helpful for hemorrhoids and diarrhea
Bilberry extract has become the leading herbal prescription for the
maintenance of healthy vision and for the treatment of many eye
diseases. Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus), the European cousin to the
blueberry, contains active ingredients that support vision and was
frequently used by World War II RAF pilots to enhance night vision.
Studies with bilberry show that it helps eyes adapt to the dark,
especially after prolonged exposure to bright light and improves visual
acuity in dim light.
The active ingredients in bilberry, anthocyanosides, are a group of
flavonoids that increase the production and integrity of collagen, a
protein that forms connective tissue in the body. Bilberry is also used
to treat artery, vein and capillary disorders.
