The Bilberry Alternative
Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) is a dark blue, edible fruit, similar to the
common blueberry. During World War II, bilberry was used by British bomber pilots,
who believed it helped their night vision. Bilberry has been a staple of European
herbalism for hundreds of years, and has become one of the most widely used
herbs in the United States for supporting vision.
Bilberry is naturally rich in anthocyanosides - a special class of flavonoid
that gives the berries their blue pigment. Anthocyanosides are powerful antioxidants
with an affinity for connective tissue. Bilberry supports the capillary integrity
of the retina, plus the normal production of rhodopsin, a substance in the rods
of the retina that is necessary for night vision. Studies suggest bilberry also
may help the eyes adapt to variations in light intensity and may increase circulation
to the eye's intricate network of tiny blood vessels.
Bilberry Eye Complex is a comprehensive formula that unites concentrated, standardized
bilberry extract with the Chinese compound, Ming Mu Di Huang Wan, which literally
translates to mean Bright Eye Rehmannia Formula. This is the classic Chinese
herbal compound used to support normal vision.
