Bilberry (Vaccinum myrtillus) is a berry shrub native to Europe that looks a lot like blueberry or huckleberry in the United States. Bilberry, like many other herbal supplements, has a long history of use, with therapeutic use dating back to the early 16th century.
The contemporary use of Bilberry began in earnest during World War II. According to legend, British and American pilots started eating bilberries as part of their diet. As they conducted sorties over Europe, they saw a significant improvement in their night vision.
The exact important elements in bilberry have been identified and their advantages for the eyes and circulatory system have been validated through extensive research. Bilberry is abundant in flavonoids, which are chemically known as polyphenols. The flavonoids in bilberries are anthocyanosides, which improve microcirculation throughout the body.
This effect has been found to be most visible in the tiny blood vessels that supply the retina of the eye. The retina is where the majority of visual functions take place.
Bilberry is a supplement that aids in the improvement and maintenance of eye health. Bilberry is a frequent treatment for retinopathy, a condition in which the retina’s complex blood veins and neurons are destroyed. Bilberries have been given in France for diabetic retinopathy, a leading cause of blindness in diabetics, since 1945.
The therapeutic value of bilberry has been proven in numerous investigations. According to one study, bilberry extract combined with vitamin E reduced the progression of cataracts in 48 of 50 patients with cataracts.
Glaucoma, macular degeneration, eye tiredness, poor night vision, and nearsightedness have all been treated with bilberry.
