Botanic Choice Liquid Extract, Bilberry, 1 Fluid Ounce
Fights Free RadicalsRelated to the blueberry, cranberry and huckleberry found in North America, bilberry is a perennial shrub that reaches heights of about 16 inches. With sharp-edged, green branches, the plant produces black berries in late summer. Native to Northern Europe and Great Britain, bilberries are borne singly vs. in clusters like its American blueberry cousin. Bilberries contain anthocyanosides, a good source of antioxidants that work to scavenge free radicals. These compounds are thought to help build strong blood vessels and support circulation to all areas of the body, including the eyes. Anthocyanosides appear to help maintain the healthy production of rhodopsin, a pigment that supports night vision and adjustments to light changes. Bilberry also contains naturally occurring trace amounts of Vitamin C, yet another antioxidant that works to keep you healthy. Bilberry, The Night-Vision Secret of WWII PilotsHistory has it that bilberry was first taken by British Royal Air Force pilots in WWII so they could see better on their nighttime bombing runs. Because it's been used for so long and is so well known, it's no surprise that it's such a popular nutrient even today.Works Quickly and CompletelyLiquid extracts work faster and more completely than other forms of supplementation.
