Bilberry is the leading herb for improved night vision, visual health and also helps improve peripheral circulation.
The discovery that bilberry significantly improved the night vision of British pilots in World War II sparked the interest of the medical community. This led to numerous clinical studies that revealed the active ingredient in bilberry fruit, anthocyanosides, helped enhance eye health and vision as well as circulation disorders. Europeans have long used the bilberry extract to reduce capillary fragility. Research shows that bilberries contain antiulcer activity as well (attributed to an increase in gastric mucous)..
The Encyclopedia of Nutritional Supplements recommends Bilberry Extract as an addition to their recommended dietary & lifestyle guide for cataracts.1
"The Commission E approved the internal use of bilberry to treat non-specific, acute diarrhea, and local therapy for mild inflammation of the mucous membranes of mouth and throat."4
"Bilberry fruit extracts may offer symptomatic relief for vascular disorders including capillary weakness, venous insufficiency, and hemorrhoids. It is also used as a secondary treatment for spasmodic colitis."4
