Benefit of Bilberry?
Bilberry contains powerful antioxidants, called anthocyanosides,
which work to reduce excess free radicals throughout the body.
Free radical molecules, if left unchecked, attack the
unsaturated fats that make up cell walls, particularly in
capillary rich areas of the body, such as the eye.
Clinical applications have included their use with glaucoma to
strengthen the collagen structures of the eyes; with cataracts
to protect against retinal degeneration and in particular
diabetic retinopathy; as an anti-inflammatory for joint
diseases; and to help prevent brain aging.
