Organika Bilberry Extract, 60 caps
A berry closely related to the blueberry, the bilberry is a source of antioxidants for the maintenance of good health. It is used in Herbal Medicine as an astringent to help relieve diarrhea.
Bilberry is a low-growing shrub in the Vaccinium genus, also referred to as European blueberry or huckleberry. They produce berries that are quite similar to their North American cousin, the blueberry. Just like our favourite cereal topper, bilberries are high in phytonutrients that are excellent for our health, like the anthocyanins that make them purple. Fresh bilberries are not commonly found in stores as they are softer and juicer than blueberries, making them more susceptible to damage. Supplementation can ensure benefits year round.
The potent anthocyanins found in bilberries are a type of flavonoid, a phytonutrient found often in purple, blue and red berries and purple vegetables. It’s abundant in antioxidants, just like blueberries, often cited as being among the foods with the highest antioxidant levels. Bilberries also contain vitamin C and phenolic compounds like quercetin, other compounds beneficial for our overall health.
Bilberries have been studied for their ability to help with eyes and vision, as well as their role in aiding in lowering high blood glucose levels. As an excellent source of the antioxidants that protect cell-signalling pathways, gene expression and DNA repair, bilberries help in the prevention of premature aging. A natural antimicrobial, anthocyanins can help protect against detrimental bacteria that may find their way into our bodies.
