European Berry DOWNS Blood Sugar, Improves Vision, and More
It’s easy to get in a rut when it comes to food.
If you think about it, we tend to eat the same foods over and over again.
If you’re choosing healthy foods, there’s nothing wrong with that… But you might be missing out on some of nature’s true superstars when it comes to both flavor and health benefits.
This European berry is the perfect example.
Besides the fact that it’s bursting with flavor, this tiny berry can help DOWN your blood sugar… IMPROVE your vision… and MELT blood clots.
Take a look.
Bilberries might look like regular blueberries, but these European natives are bursting with so much flavor that they make blueberries seem… well… bland.
If you only wanted to eat them for their flavor, I wouldn’t blame you. But their health benefits are just as robust.
Besides being a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese, they are rich in antioxidants and anthocyanins (the plant compound that gives them their dark blue color).
Because of that, numerous studies have shown that bilberries have numerous specific health benefits. Here are just a few:
- They can lower your blood sugar levels. In one study, bilberry extract lowered blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. In another study, when bilberries were added to the diet, the increased insulin secretion in adults with type 2 diabetes.
- They’re good for your heart. The anthocyanins in bilberries can help lower blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol, and increase HDL cholesterol. And a study of people taking berries (including bilberry) showed that they improved their platelet function, blood pressure, and HDL cholesterol.
- They can improve your eyesight. In people with glaucoma (an incurable form of eye damage), taking 120 mg of bilberry anthocyanins actually improved visual function by 30%.
- They improve brain function. Bilberry supplements have been shown to improve long-term and working memory.
- They have anti-microbial effects. Lab studies have shown that bilberries have effects against harmful bacteria like Salmonella and Staphylococcus aureus.
- They’re beneficial for ulcerative colitis. Taking a bilberry supplement every day has been found to reduce chronic inflammation in the colon and rectum in people with ulcerative colitis.
You can get bilberry supplements from your local natural health store.
