Our alcohol-free Greenbush Bilberry extract is great for anyone looking to naturally improve their overall vision of health and are dissatisfied with the current synthetic, alcohol-based, or expensive formulated extracts and supplements available to them. Unlike other supplements and multi-herb formulas available in the market, our Greenbush Bilberry extract is a natural, single-herb supplement without fillers or additives that is carefully extracted to deliver as much of the active herb, Vaccinium myrtillus, as possible.
No fillers or additives. No “kitchen sink” multi-herb formulas with as many as 20 ingredients. No nonsense.
Just pure and potent herbs delivered in a vegetarian, Non-GMO capsule since 1997.
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 Bilberry can improve night-vision making it particularly useful for drivers who have difficulties seeing well at night. Because it improves circulation it is also useful for supporting heart and circulatory related illnesses.
Bilberry contains anthocyanosides which are potent anti-oxidents that 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.
The anthocyanocides in the herb also help stabilize collagen tissues such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage. It should be included on anyone’s list of herbs for aging.
Safety Issues to Note:
Bilberry, a commonly eaten food, has been found safe and non-toxic, even in very high doses, in a wide variety of studies. There are no known drug interactions. It may interfere with iron absorption so it should not be used if anemic.
Top uses include:
Vision support, diarrhea, blood sugar, inflammation, menstrual cramps, night vision, stress, circulatory system health, urinary tract problems, vein support.
