Bilberry Extract does have some great benefits however defining them as major really depends on the person. Bilberries are sort of like the English version of blueberries, except blueberries grow in clusters while bilberries usually grow by themselves or by pairs. Blueberries also are bigger than bilberries and have more leaves as well.
One of the major benefits of bilberry extract is that it can improve eye sight. During World War 2 British fighter pilots would take this herb before night flying missions and they noticed that their eye sight had improved.
This is due to the antioxidants in this plant that can neutralize free radicals around the eyes. Free radicals are molecules that are out to do harm to a person. This herb also has something called anthocyanins, which help the blood vessels around the eye and this can help with all sorts of vision related problems such as cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma and night glare.
In one study done in Italy 50 people who had cataracts were given bilberry extract with some other antioxidants and the medicine was over 95% successful.
Another very popular use of bilberry is that it can help with the digestive system.
According to some health scientists this herb is able to slow fluids through the digestive tract which helps ease diarrhea. This can also assist with menstrual pains and ulcers of the stomach.
Bilberries have also been known to help ease blood flow, which in itself can provide a ton of health benefits including preventing heart disease, strokes, putting less stress on the heart, clearing thinking, helping with a man’s erection, and improving energy levels to name a few.
This plant also contains a chemical named glucoquinine and this substance can assist with regulating a person’s blood sugar levels which can help with the disease diabetes.
If you live outside of Great Britain and want to get the health benefits that this plant can give a person one of the easiest ways to get these benefits would be to take a supplement. Due to bilberries having antioxidant properties the longer the berry is exposed to air the less effective it becomes. One of the advantages of supplements is that they have much more resistance to free radical damage in the air and maintain their potency much more effective.
