Bilberry Extract Benefits
Bilberry extract strengthens the vascular system. The collagen protein in the vascular wall becomes stronger when bilberry is present. The smaller capillaries in the vascular wall become less inclined to leak. It is very helpful in treating varicose veins and thrombosis.
The fruit of the Bilberries contain flavanoids and anthrocyanin. This strengthens the capillaries and thins the blood, which reduces clotting. The blood pressure is lowered and the blood sugar is lowered also.
Bilberry herb contains vitamin A and vitamin C which supplies antioxidant protection which is very beneficial in treating certain conditions of the eye such as reducing eye strain, night blindness, pigmentosa, retinitis, glaucoma, and myopia. It helps grow and repair the tissue cells of the eye and the blood vessels surrounding the eye. This keeps the eye muscles strong and gives needed nutrients to the eye muscles and the nerves.
Bilberry herb is also used for diarrhea and a relief from nausea and indigestion. Taken in the form of tea or dried fruit, it is used for this and also for inflammation of the mouth and throat.
It is beneficial for people who have jobs where they strain their eyes significantly such as computer operators, students, technicians, etc. Consult your physician before using this or any other supplement.
