Bilberry (vaccinium myrtillus) has been used for over 1000 years. It is a relative of blueberry, and is known as European blueberry and huckleberry. It was traditionally used to treat diarrhea and dysentery and to relieve scurvy, dysuria, and to stop the flow of breast milk. Today in Europe, preparations are used to treat degenerative retinal disorders such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. It is also used to treat microcirculatory disorders including atherosclerosis, varicose veins and venous insufficiency. It has been suggested that bilbery works by protecting against the breakdown as well as generating rhodopsin (retinal purple), a pigment located in the retina. It may also decrease capillary fragility and permeability. Bilberry anthocyanidins inhibit platelet aggregation and thrombus formation, and are vasoprotective, they also have antioxidant effects. Bilberry extracts have been investigated for their effects on improving vision acuity in dim light, on night vision, diabetic neuropathy, retinal inflammation, reducing cataract formation, progressive myopia, glaucoma and retinitis pigmentosa. Our bilberry contains 25 percent anthocyanidins by measured by HPLC (high performance liquid chromatatography).
