where to buy bilberry

If you choose to use bilberry, use it as directed on the package or as directed by your doctor, pharmacist, or other healthcare provider. Do not use more of this product than is recommended on the label.

Avoid using bilberry together with other herbal/health supplements that can also lower your blood sugar. This includes devil's claw, fenugreek, garlic, guar gum, horse chestnut, Panax ginseng, psyllium, Siberian ginseng, and others.

Avoid using bilberry together with other herbal/health supplements that can also affect blood-clotting. This includes angelica (dong quai), capsicum, clove, danshen, garlic, ginger, ginkgo, horse chestnut, Panax ginseng, poplar, red clover, turmeric, and willow.

This list is not complete. Other drugs may interact with bilberry, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Not all possible interactions are listed in this product guide.

Data from studies show that bilberry reduces levels of inflammatory markers in most clinical studies of metabolic disorders and may be useful for the prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory disorders (12).

Keep in mind that these studies were small, and some lacked a placebo group, making it difficult to determine whether the bilberry supplements are what caused the beneficial effects. Therefore, more studies are needed.

The limited number of studies and large variations in dosages make it challenging to determine the most effective dose. Still, most human studies have used anywhere between 50 grams of fresh bilberries to 500 mg of bilberry supplements.

Fresh bilberries are generally considered safe, but the large doses found in some supplements may be problematic. Children, those taking certain medications, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women may need to avoid bilberry supplements.

Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus L), on the other hand, is a wild species, native to forests of northern Europe. Bilberry is also know as wild blueberry in Europe. It is almost impossible to cultivate bilberry. [1]

Most attention has been focused on the antioxidant properties of anthocyanins in relation to health benefits of bilberry, the effects are likely to extend beyond simple antioxidant action to involve cell-signaling pathways, gene expression, DNA repair, and cell adhesion, as well as antineoplastic and antimicrobial effects.

Heard some where in the past couple years that during WWI that Bristish Solders had better nigth vison . It was determined that it was because they ate Bilberry Jam . Since I have wet Macular Degeneration I decided to eat wild blue berries from Maine along with my supplement with Lutin. The wild berries seem to have more purple flesh and juice like bilberries that commercial blueberries in the US.

Bilberry is a type of dark blue-skinned berry native to Europe. It is sometimes called whortleberry, huckleberry, or blaeberry. Today, the bilberry grows in countries outside of Europe, including certain regions of the United States.

Also known as European Blueberries due to its close relation to the fruit, Bilberry is a traditional herb that has been used in wellness practices for generations. Our bilberry provides you with 1,200 mg per capsule to support your healthy lifestyle.

Wow. Good question. You may want to try the Herbalism forum -- if it's sold for medicinal use there has to be plants somewhere. Or, contact Forest Farm. They have a lot of Vaccinium listed, but not Vaccinium myrtillus (LINN.) They may know of a source.

I looked bilberry up and it said it was a type of english blueberry. I'v never heard of these, I've heard of huckleberry's are they the same, I've never tried either. They are edible right? What do they taste like? Is it like a blueberry or can it be described?

"Huckleberry" and "blueberry" is a different species than "bilberry". This is another good example of where common names can lead to confusion. ie., if you search "Huckleberry" in the Forest Farm site, three different genus, including two species of Vaccinium come up.

I have just come home from three days walking on the North Somerset/Devon coast where bilberries and blackthorn abound. I'm still curious as to why you want to grow bilberries when the yield is so tiny. I'm also especially intrigued by herbalbetty's search for blackthorn. Over here it is on sale very cheaply as a hedging plant. The spinosa part of its name is absolutely accurate and it is widely used here as a stock proof hedge. But apart from the sloes for making gin or wine why do you want one so much?

Here in Yorkshire England they grow wild on moorland I used to take my children to pick the berries when they were young and make bilberry pie and crumble.To make jam you would need to spend a lot of time and effort as they are low bushes with few fruit on each so would be back breaking work to collect enough for jam.

I was interested in bilberry plants because the fruit is supposed to be so good for you, and reportedly tastes richer than blueberries. The low yield, and their reputation for being difficult to grow is kind of discouraging though. I may stick with lingonberries instead.

Paradise bilberry formula is a potent concentration. Using a 100% natural extraction method the true essence and breadth of the whole herb is captured therefore retaining all of its active and synergistic constituents in the balanced ratio nature intended.

Jarrow Formulas Bilberry + Grapeskin Polyphenols is a synergistic blend of standardized flavonoid antioxidants.* The Swedish bilberry extract contains 25% polyphenols as anthocyanosides. The red grapeskin extract contains 30% polyphenols, including anthocyanins. These flavonoids support the integrity of the capillaries and other blood vessels in the eyes.*

Founded in Paris, France in 2016, Bilberry's mission is to help growers dramatically reduce the amount of chemicals sprayed on crops while improving the quality of their crop production and profitability. Using artificial intelligence and deep learning technology, Bilberry transforms crop protection by spraying at the plant level, instead of field level. In a world where broadcast spraying is no longer a viable option, Bilberry offers farmers an alternative solution by targeting and spraying weeds locally. The company's intelligent agriculture systems turn sprayers into smart engines that spray weeds directly without damaging crops. From green-on-brown to green-on-green applications, Bilberry's precision agriculture technology helps farmers control weed at various stages of growth. For more information, visit:

Limited studies in animals have been performed, but there is anecdotal evidence that bilberry may improve any condition that would benefit from antioxidant therapy, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, high blood sugar, vision problems, or infections.

There is not enough evidence to say that it can prevent heart disease. A few small studies have shown that it may reduce cholesterol levels and inflammatory markers, such as C-reactive protein (CRP). However, there is insufficient evidence that bilberry will prevent occurrences of heart attack or stroke from atherosclerotic disease.

There is not enough research evidence to determine that taking bilberry supplements will improve eye health. Bilberry may help alleviate eye fatigue in people who use video display terminals (e.g., smartphones and personal computers).

A small study published in the Journal of Nutrition, Health & Aging looked at 281 people who used video display terminals. Researchers determined that treatment with bilberry extract may help improve both objective and subjective measures of eye fatigue. A more recent study found that 240 mg of bilberry extract given for 12 weeks helped relieve symptoms of eye fatigue associated with high use of visual display terminals.

Bilberry supplements have long been believed to improve night vision, but the research does not support that theory. There is little to no research on other aspects of eye health and bilberry use.
