Bilberry extract

Bilberry extract is derived from the dark purple berries of the bilberry plant, which is native to the northern regions of Europe. The small bilberry shrub, also known as Vaccinium myrtillus, generally reaches a height of 16 inches (40.64 cm) and features oval leaves and pinkish-white flowers. Bilberry extract is commonly used as a nutritional supplement to treat a variety of conditions, including diarrhea, heart disease and macular degeneration. Its effectiveness has not been determined scientifically, but the chemicals in bilberry extract generally have been found to have beneficial properties.One chemical in bilberry extract is anthocyanidin, a flavonoid that causes the deep purple color of the bilberry. Its strong antioxidant properties protect the bilberry from the damaging effects of free radicals, and researchers have found that anthocyanidin can also protect human cells from free radical damage. In fact, anthocyanidin is a more potent antioxidant than vitamin C and vitamin E. An unique feature of anthocyanidins is that they are usually effective in both polar and non-polar environments.Potential medical applications of anthocyanidin rely on its ability to protect collagen from free radicals. Collagen is the material that makes capillary walls and joints. Over time, free radicals damage the collagen, reducing its integrity. Since anthocyanidin can protect collagen from free radical damage, researchers are studying possible ways to incorporate anthocyanidin into the treatment of atherosclerosis and arthritis.
