Supplement Facts for 100 mg
The Bilberry Alternative
Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) is a dark blue, edible fruit, similar to the
common blueberry. During World War II, bilberry was used by British bomber pilots,
who believed it helped their night vision. Bilberry has been a staple of European
herbalism for hundreds of years, and has become one of the most widely used
herbs in the United States for supporting vision.
Bilberry is naturally rich in anthocyanosides - a special class of flavonoid
that gives the berries their blue pigment. Anthocyanosides are powerful antioxidants
with an affinity for connective tissue. Bilberry supports the capillary integrity
of the retina, plus the normal production of rhodopsin, a substance in the rods
of the retina that is necessary for night vision. Studies suggest bilberry also
may help the eyes adapt to variations in light intensity and may increase circulation
to the eye's intricate network of tiny blood vessels.
Bilberry Vision is a powerful bilberry extract, concentrated and standardized
to yield 37% anthocyanosides - the same amount used in most modern research
and nearly 100 times as potent as regular bilberry. Each tablet delivers 100
mg of this extract, prepared from bilberries harvested in the mountains of Sweden.
