Secret Source Of Bilberry Extract In India
The bilberry is a relative of the blueberry. Bilberry is often referred to as Vaccinium myrtillus scientifically, and a whole lot of other names, depending on geography.
The herb is very common in Europe, as much as blueberries are common in North America. However, aside from the forests and meadows of northern Europe, bushes of bilberries are also found in the Rocky Mountains of North America and in western and southern Asia.
In fact, one of the best sources is bilberry extract in India.
It was found that bilberries grow abundant on very acidic and nutrient-poor soils. As mentioned, they are related to the North American blueberries, but while a blueberry’s fruit pulp is green, the bilberry’s is red or purple.
Bilberries contain anthocyanosides, which are powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants are potent compounds capable of counteracting cell damage caused by free radicals, a group of unstable oxygen molecules.
From bilberries come bilberry extracts, which are now the leading herbal remedy for maintaining healthy vision and managing various eye disorders. The antioxidants in bilberry extract help the retina to adapt properly to both darkness and light, and as such, have been popularly used to treat night blindness.
Bilberry extract is available in many forms such as tablets, capsules, softgels, tincture and even dried herb or tea. It is of note that bilberry extracts contain between 100 and 250 times the amount of anthocyanosides found in fresh bilberries.
There are supplements, particularly for eye health, that include bilberry extract. However, not all supplements are created equal. In North America, the supplement industry is still unregulated and consumers only have a 1 in 5 chance of buying a product that contains the actual products stated.
The potency of the ingredients in a supplement is highly dependent on its source. Bilberry extract in India is one of the best sources, and there are reputable manufacturers that indicate where they get their ingredients.
Aside from the soil characteristics, produce is also dependent on storage and the manufacturing process. It might be advisable to also research on these aspects as you choose the products for your health.
Bilberry extract maintains healthy vision and improves night vision and poor visual adaptation to bright light. Since bilberry improves blood flow in both small and large blood vessels, bilberry extract may also prove helpful for people with poor circulation in their extremities, for varicose veins, and for pain and burning of hemorrhoids.
Bilberry extract as an ingredient in a multivitamin, mineral, herbal blend supplement and is a powerful ally for the health of the eyes, as well as other parts of the body.
The next thing to do is to find a quality product that actually contains the ingredients on its labels and sourced from the best parts of the world.
