Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) is a member of the Blueberry family but with very distinct properties. Its common name is European Blueberry. This species is native to northern Europe and Asia. It is related in species to the cranberry and American Blueberry. European Bilberry has a purple interior and exterior and American Bilberry differs in that it has a white interior. Its main habitat is the woods and forest meadows of Europe.
Night Sight: Popular as a jam, Bilberry has been the subject of many studies which resulted from reports of Royal Air Force pilots' experiences after eating the Bilberry jam. These pilots noticed that their vision in the darkness was greatly improved during their night missions. Studies confirmed what these British pilots had noticed. Researchers believe that Bilberry improves night vision by increasing the production of enzymes in the retina responsible for energy production. The extract accelerates the rate at which the eyes adapt to changing light conditions. This is especially critical as we age and our eyes' ability to adapt diminishes.
Eye Health: The health of the eye depends on the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the eyes. Blood delivers these nutrients and oxygen to the eye. With a strong circulatory system in the eyes, the health of the eyes will be greater. It also has the ability to prevent free radical damage to the eyes.
Circulation: Bilberry helps circulation by stimulating new capillary formation. Bilberry strengthens capillary walls and helps to strengthen the whole circulatory system.
