Bilberry is a small fruit found in Europe‚ similar to blueberries but more difficult to grow and transport. Therefore‚ a supplement like Pure Encapsulations' Bilberry 160 mg is a far more convenient way to experience its benefits.
What is bilberry and why would you even want to use it? It contains anthocyanidins‚ which may help your eyes adjust to changes in light and darkness. This support for the rhodopsin-opsin pigment system promotes better vision by allowing your eyes to adjust to dimly lit spaces more easily‚ while also lessening stress and fatigue in the eyes. A common folk tale regarding bilberry extract's potential to support night vision claims that Royal Air Force pilots ate bilberry jam during World War II before night missions; while this turned out to be inaccurate‚ the reputation stuck.
In addition‚ bilberry extract may help maintain good vision and macular health as you get older. Its antioxidant properties also support the retina.
Finally‚ Bilberry 160 mg may work to support your veins. It can boost the levels of vitamin C in your cells‚ which promotes better integrity and strength of vascular walls. It also stimulates the body's production of connective ground substance tissue and collagen.
One vegetable capsule offers a potent 160-milligram dose of vaccinium myrtillus (bilberry) extract‚ which has been standardized to contain 25% anthocyanoside pigment. It also provides fat-soluble vitamin C to further promote absorption.
Each bottle of Bilberry 160 mg by Pure Encapsulations contains 120 capsules. At the recommended dosage of one to four capsules daily (with meals‚ in divided doses)‚ a bottle should last from one to four months.
