Bilberry extract (scientific name: vaccinium myrtillus) are a dark blue fruit, similar in appearance to blueberries but are smaller, softer and darker.Research studies indicate that a compound in bilberries, anthocyanosides, appear to promote blood vessel strength which could have protective properties against forms of retinal damage in people with diabetes.
Bilberry extract has become one of the most widely-used supplements in the world for maintaining normal vision, improving micro circulation in the eye and for relieving tired eyes. A number of studies have also demonstrated the powerful antioxidant action of anthocyanosides in this supplement.

Bilberry Extract Benefits:
1. They lower inflammation
Bilberry Extract are believed to fight inflammation, says Jamie Bacharach, DiplAc, a licensed herbal medicine practitioner and acupuncturist at the Acupuncture Jerusalem Clinic. This is likely thanks to their high concentration of antioxidants, aka compounds that fight inflammatory damage from free radical compounds. One small study found that taking 300 milligrams of anthocyanins—plant compounds with antioxidant properties—extracted from bilberries and black currants over a three-week period helped reduce levels of several inflammatory biomarkers.
2. They can support cardiovascular health
Since bilberry fruit extract are rich in antioxidants, they also may support heart health. “They offer polyphenol anthocyanins, phytochemicals that provide the rich blue color, but also are linked to improved inflammatory responses," says Jones. Those compounds may also prevent blood clotting, as well as help lower blood pressure, adds Bacharach—which not only promotes heart health but also reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. "However, [bilberries] are most often consumed as an extract in supplement form, which increases potency of the antioxidants," Jones says—meaning that just eating the straight berries might not be as protective.
3. They might help with diabetes management
Some preliminary studies imply bilberry extract could benefit people with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (although more research is needed), likely because the antioxidants help reduce inflammation associated with the disease. “Bilberries have been shown to reduce blood sugar while stimulating insulin secretion, thereby proving useful for diabetics,” Bacharach adds.
4. They can support immune system health
Due to the antioxidant content and vitamin C content of bilberry fruit extract, they can help keep your immune system in tip-top shape. “Bilberry may also have antimicrobial benefits. In general, the high anthocyanin content is its largest benefit, as these compounds aid in antioxidant systems to protect the body's cells from stress,” Jones says. And stress can have huge impacts on your body's ability to fight off sickness.
5. Bilberries are good for your eyes
Bilberry Extract can support eye health and aid in ocular circulation. Specifically, “bilberry fruit extract have been found to improve the vision of glaucoma patients, in addition to proving capable of reducing eye strain,” says Bacharach.
