Consuming bilberry may provide positive effects on your health. It has been known to help with the following:
•Maintaining Eye Health
Bilberry is largely known for its benefits in helping promote eye health. According to a World War II legend, the U.K.’s Royal Air Force pilots consumed bilberry before flying on nighttime missions. It was believed that consuming the fruit helped improve their ability to see in the dark, which gave them good accuracy.6
There may be some truth to this claim, as several studies have examined the ocular benefits of bilberries since then. In one study, a combination of bilberry anthocyanins (a type of antioxidant) and vitamin E had a 97 percent success rate in preventing cataract progression.7 In another study, bilberry was found to help fight against endotoxin-induced uveitis (inflammation of the uvea) in mice.8
•Maintaining Heart Health
Consuming this tiny fruit may provide big benefits for your heart. According to one study wherein participants consumed moderate amounts of bilberry for eight weeks, researchers noted that the berries helped decrease HDL (bad) cholesterol levels, and helped improve platelet function and blood pressure.
•Lowering the Risk of Cancer and DNA Damage
The berry family is rich in anthocyanins that can help lower your risk of cancer and protect your DNA from damage. In a 2004 study, researchers discovered that consuming anthocyanin-rich foods can help inhibit key regulators that can lead to cancer, as well as helping reduce tumor growth.9
Inflammation is your body’s defense mechanism when it deals with disease and eliminating pathogens. However, when it becomes chronic, it can affect your quality of life. In this regard, the anthocyanins of bilberry can help reduce your risk of unwanted inflammation.
In a study published in The Journal of Nutrition, researchers noted that participants who consumed anthocyanin-rich bilberry extracts helped inhibit factors that stimulate inflammatory response in their bodies. They went on to suggest that anthocyanin foods may have a positive effect on alleviating chronic inflammatory diseases.10
In Europe, bilberry is one of the most popular natural choices to help control diabetes and provide relief from its symptoms.11The compounds in bilberry can help lower blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin secretion, according to results gathered from an animal study.12
