Bilberry Extract is a natural wild bilberry supplement standardised to 25% anthocyanosides (or anthocyanins). These pigments are part of the family of flavonoids, the health benefits of which are widely documented, particularly for circulation. It is these anthocyanins which are primarily responsible for the benefits attributed to bilberries (1).
The bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus)support visual function (2-3).
Several high-quality studies have demonstrated the underlying mechanisms behind this probable benefit. Bilberry helps to:
Bilberry Extract is primarily designed for:
Bilberries’ properties come mainly from their high level of anthocyanosides. These are found in many fruits, as well as in red wine and some green leafy vegetables, but bilberries are probably the richest source (4).
The latest research shows the likely ways in which anthocyanins benefit microcirculation, by strengthening capillary resistance and reducing their permeability. They may also promote the regeneration of rhodopsin, or visual purple, thus improving night vision (scotopic) and twilight vision (mesopic), though robust clinical trials are needed to confirm this.
Additional mechanisms currently under investigation include:
Bilberries are undoubtedly the most precious of all berries: they are extremely delicatewhich makes them very difficult to cultivate and transport. That’s why the bilberries used in our extract are gathered from wild plants, before being frozen, sorted, washed and purified in such a way as to maintain all their active substances and ensure optimal efficacy of their anthocyanins. What’s more, the anthocyanin content is guaranteed at a level of 25% of the dried extract !
Bilberry Extract is also free from any chemical excipient.
We recommend taking two capsules a day, before each main meal.
