Medicinal Properties of Bilberry

medicinal properties of bilberriesThe power of bilberries,

The medicinal properties of bilberry, a small fruit that is closely related to the blueberry, are primarily due to the presence of potent antioxidants present in the fruit. Bilberry contains compounds known as anthocyanidins, a type of flavonoid that is among the strongest antioxidants known.

Both the fruit and leaves of bilberry plants can be used to make bilberry extract, an herbal preparation that is used for a variety of medicinal purposes. Without the intervention of antioxidants like those contained in bilberry, free radicals bombard the body and lead to a host of problems.

This invasion can damage the blood vessels of the cardiovascular system, lead to the development of cancer, and accelerate the effects of aging. Free radicals are unavoidable byproducts of metabolic reactions that occur naturally as a result of exercise as well as pollution and other environmental stresses. However, bilberry and other antioxidants can mediate the effects of free radical damage in the body.

Medicinal Properties of Bilberry.

Due to the medicinal properties of bilberry this is widely used to treat a condition known as macular degeneration in which the tiny capillaries in the retina of the eye break, leading to loss of vision. This condition is the leading cause of blindness in people over age 55. Clinical studies have shown that by increasing the flexibility of capillaries in the eye, bilberry can help to slow the progression of macular degeneration.

This effect on the flexibility of blood vessels also makes bilberry useful in treating conditions like varicose veins, which is caused by impaired blood flow in the legs. Bilberry can improve blood flow in the legs and alleviate symptoms like pain and swelling in the calves and ankles.

Further, the flavonoids in bilberry can help to prevent bruising,bleeding, and capillary breakage.

Another of the medicinal properties of bilberry includes its ability to act as a blood thinner and prevent blood clots from forming. It is also thought that bilberry extract can prevent the development of artherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) caused by the build up of plaque in blood vessels.

In addition, bilberry can help keep blood vessels from being blocked by calcium or fat deposits. All of these effects make bilberry a popular herbal supplement for people with or at risk of heart disease.

Bilberry Extract

Bilberry extract can be purchased in capsule or tablet form. To be effective, supplements should contain at least 25% anthocyanidins in a standardized extract. Since it derives from food, bilberry extract is extremely safe. In fact, the same effects can be obtained by eating two or three bowls of raw bilberries, though taking a bilberry supplement may be easier.

“Thank you for such great value on your products…as I have written several articles on daily vitamins, I’ve come to really appreciate just how complete Total Balance is…”

“My daughter was really impressed. When I got home last night, she told me I had a message from someone in New Zealand wanting to know if I wanted my vitamins. This time, the answer is YES!!

Thank you so much for calling. That was DEFINITELY above and beyond the call of duty – but that’s not strange at all for Xtend-Life. I have ALWAYS only received absolutely exemplary customer service. Besides, I’ve NEVER dealt with any company where I was able to ask questions DIRECTLY to the Chairman of the Board and actually have him answer me. He didn’t even tell me he was the COB. I found out “accidently” when I was looking for something else on the website.

Thanks again for all your kindness. I can’t wait to get my shipment. I have noticed a definite difference all these months without them.”

“I started my son on Total Balance Unisex and Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil a couple of months ago. He’s 11 and has had a very hard time with his focus and attention span through all of his school years so far. One doctor and some teachers thought he had ADHD and prescribed medication. I gave it to him briefly, but he complained of feeling weird on the medication and he lost his appetite. I also noticed he seemed to lose his normal spirit and in some ways seemed almost depressed.

I took him off all medications. I really noticed an improvement with the Total Balance and Omega 3/DHA combination. This marking period he made the honor roll which he has never once done through all his school years! He’s in 5th grade now and I want to keep his confidence up for the years ahead when he’ll be going to high school. I’m assuming it’s the supplements that are helping him. It’s been a very positive experience for him and me. Your supplements have helped me too! Thanks”
