Introduction of Bilberry Extract

Bilberries, or sometimes European blueberries, are a primarily Eurasian species of low-growing shrubs in the genus Vaccinium (family Ericaceae), bearing edible, dark blue berries. The species most often referred to is Vaccinium myrtillus L., but there are several other closely related species.The name "bilberry" appears to have a Scandinavian origin, possibly from as early as 1577, being similar to the Danish word bølle for whortleberry with the addition of "berry". In Scandinavian languages bilberries have names that translate to "blueberry": blåbär in Swedish and blåbær in Danish and Norwegian. The bilberry (especially Vaccinium myrtillus) is also known by a number of other names including blaeberry in Scottish and Northern English regional dialects and the Scots language, whortleberry in southern England, and whimberry, wimberry, winberry or whinberry in Derbyshire, Lancashire, along the Anglo-Welsh border, and south Wales, amongst other places.

Bilberries-which are native to Europe- are different from North American blueberries, although the species are closely related and belong to the same genus, Vaccinium. Bilberry are non-climacteric fruits with a smooth, circular outline at the end opposite the stalk, whereas blueberries retain persistent sepals there, leaving a rough, star-shaped pattern of five flaps. Bilberries grow singly or in pairs rather than in clusters, as blueberries do, and blueberries have more evergreen leaves. Bilberries are dark in colour, and often appear near black with a slight shade of purple.


Rich in antioxidants known as anthocyanins and polyphenols, bilberries have been used for medicinal purposes ranging from eye conditions to diabetes. Bilberry is often touted as a remedy for eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, dry eyes, age-related macular degeneration, and retinitis pigmentosa (rare diseases of the light-sensitive area of the eye).

As a source of antioxidants, bilberries are also thought to curb inflammation and protect against diseases associated with oxidative stress, such as inflammatory bowel disease(IBD), cardiovascular disease, diabetes, gingivitis, and age-related cognitive decline.
