Bilberry extract enhances vision

Apr 29, 2021

Ripe bilberry fruits are rich in brassic pigments and anthocyanins used as antioxidants. Healthy people or visually impaired patients can take bilberry extract alone or take β-carotene and vitamin E at the same time, which can significantly improve night vision, respond quickly to darkness, and restore visual acuity faster after the eyes are exposed to bright light.

Because the rhodopsin contained in the bilberry is the basic substance for the eyes to produce vision, and the flavonoids can well improve the microvascular circulation of the eyes. Bilberry is also known as the "pilot's breakfast." It is said that during World War II, the British and French Air Force designated the jam made from European bilberry as a special food to improve the accuracy of bombing. It is enough to prove the effect of bilberry in improving eyesight.

Both bilberry and blueberry have beneficial effects on the eyes, but in terms of effect, bilberry is better for the eyes. Bilberry is mostly used as a raw material for health food, and the price is higher than that of blueberry.
