Bilberries are closely related to blueberries and are thought to have originated in Northern Europe. Bilberry is also known as European blueberry, whortleberry, huckleberry and blaeberry and is a relative of blueberry, cranberry, and huckleberry. It looks and tastes much like the American blueberry, but is usually a bit smaller. It has a long history as a culinary ingredient, and is commonly used in the processes of making pies and jams. However, bilberries are rich in a range of nutrients that are known to support the maintenance of health, and have been used for centuries in a therapeutic capacity. Although bilberries can be eaten fresh or dried, many people find their bitter taste to be unpalatable, and bilberry supplements offer a convenient alternative.

Anthocyanins from Bilberry Extract
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 main ingredient 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. A unique feature of anthocyanidins is that they are usually effective in both polar and non-polar environments. Potential medical applications of anthocyanidins 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.
