What is bilberry extract?
Bilberry, a close relative of the blueberry, is a fruit that grows in North America, Europe and Asia. Besides being popular in jams, pies and other desserts, bilberries are a natural source of biologically active components, including a class called anthocyanosides. Anthocyanosides, which are responsible for the bilberry’s deep blue color, are antioxidants that help protect cells from free radical damage.*
Historically, bilberry has been used to support eye health, around the world and by the military. One of the first researchers provided bilberry to Royal Air Force pilots during World War II.
