Recommendations and Research* Bilberry, which is a fruit similar to American blueberries, has a long history of medicinal uses dating back to the middle ages. It continues to be widely used in Europe and is making inroads in the US. It contains fatty acids, flavenoids and tanins that have been shown to strengthen capillaries and connective tissue. It is particularly useful in treating poor eyesight and improving vein health. Studies have shown that a single dose can improve night vision for two hours making it particularly useful for drivers who have difficulties seeing well at night. Because it improves circulation it is useful for heart and circulatory related illnesses.
Bilberry contains anthocyanosides which are potent anti-oxidents which strengthen capillary walls, improve red blood cells and have cholesterol lowering effects. The herb is also a vasodialator that opens blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. It is used to treat age related vision problems. Scientific studies have shown improvement in the eyesight, circulation vein health.
The anthocyanocides in the herb stabalize collagen tissues such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage. It should be included on anyone,s list of herbs for aging. Bilberry's history includes its use by WWII fighter pilots to improve night vision.

Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts: Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation®. Bio-Chelation® describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.
Holistically Balanced Herbal Extracts: It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant's constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).
