Meet blueberry’s first cousin – bilberry

Bilberry leaf has long been used for treatment of diabetes, high cholesterol, vascular disorders, kidney stones, typhoid fever, eye disorders and many other ills. Loaded with anthocyanosides – which are potent antioxidants – bilberry reduces inflammation, strengthens both blood vessels and capillary walls, naturally thins the blood, stimulates the release of vasodilators, improves red blood cells, stabilizes collagen tissues such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage and can even prevent diabetic retinopathy. Bilberry is also used for a curative and a preventative treatment for ulcers as well as treatment for chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, spider veins, blood clots in the legs and even hemorrhoids. In one study, bilberry stopped the growth of both leukemia and colon cancer cells by blocking the effects of enzymes and chemicals that promote tumor growth. Did you know that WWII pilots took bilberry because it dramatically improved their night vision? Won’t cost you much to try some and see for yourself what bilberry can do for you.
