Viridian Bilberry with Eyebright
Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus)
EYE PROTECTOR - Bilberry extracts are rich in a flavonoid known as anthocyanoside, which exerts potent effects primarily through improving blood flow and the delivery of oxygen to the eye. The potent antioxidant effects of Bilberry also protect the eyes from free-radical damage, the causative factor involved in the development of cataracts. The collagen protecting effects of bilberry also play a significant role in prevention and treatment of glaucoma.
CIRCULATORY TONIC - Clinical studies have shown good results in the treatment of various circulatory problems through reduced capillary fragility, improving collagen stability, and restoring connective tissue that surround the veins. Reduction in platelet aggregation has also been noted in those using bilberry extracts. This offers benefits in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis and clot formation.
BLOOD SUGAR LOWERING - The anthocyanoside myrtillin, found in bilberry, exerts hypoglycaemic effects with even a single dose exerting beneficial effects lasting several weeks.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY - Anthocyanosides and other flavonoid compounds found in bilberry prevent the release of inflammatory chemicals such as leukotrienes, histamine and prostaglandins.
