Bilberries received their first major recognition during World War II.
British pilots noticed that eating bilberry jam before flights seemed to improve
their night vision. Many of the pilots claimed that in as quickly as twenty
minutes after eating the jam, their sight was already improving.
In the years since the war numerous studies
have been conducted on this herb. These studies show that bilberry does indeed
improve night vision. One of the most encouraging studies holds that over 80% of
the people taking bilberry for the first time improved on both their visual
acuity exam and on a night vision test.
Researchers were able to isolate the
flavonoid they think is responsible for the vision improvement. It is called
anthocyanoside and is responsible for the deep red-blue of the berries.
Scientists found that anthocyanoside greatly
increases the eye's ability to see purples. These purples are the major color
seen by the eyes at night. This improvement takes very little time to occur,
just as the pilots claimed. For long term improvements, however; an average of
six weeks with regular doses is needed.
Bilberry concentrate is prepared to
specifically contain at least 25% anthocyanosides. Anthocyanoside is one of the
more effective antioxidants. In fact, it is ranked higher in power than vitamins
E and C.
In addition to finding that bilberry
improves night vision, studies have also shown that it improves nearsightedness
and overall visual acuity during the day as well. Scientists believe that this
improvement might be due to bilberry's effect on the blood supply. In one study,
the blood supply to the eye was increased by 75% in patients taking regular
The positive effects of this small shrub are
believed to help more than just the eyes. Anthocyanosides are believed to
strengthen the capillary walls. This protection may lower the blood pressure,
reduce clots, help eliminate varicose veins and improve blood supplies. Bilberry
has been shown to reduce excessive bleeding and thin the blood by reducing
