Bilberries: Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus)
Is a dark blue berry also known as the European blueberry. It has dark, juicy flesh, and is similar in flavour to a blueberry. Bilberry has been used for centuries, both medicinally and as a food in jams and pies. It is related to the blueberry and is native to Northern Europe. Bilberry fruit contains potent chemical compounds known as anthocyanidins, plant pigments that have excellent antioxidant properties. Bilberry is rich in many other nutrients and beneficial compounds including Vitamin C, another powerful antioxidant. They scavenge damaging particles in the body known as free radicals, helping prevent or reverse damage to cells.
Bilberries are linked to reduced inflammation and blood sugar levels, as well as may improve brain function, fight off bacteria, and improve digestion.
Bilberry fruit and extract are considered generally safe. However, if there is a sensitivity or allergy to tannins then avoid bilberry.
