Bilberry - Vaccinium Myrtillus - dried leaves and fruit -


Bilberries are the plants of the Vaccinium family. In Georgia there are four types of Vaccinium available: Vaccinium Myrtillus, Vaccinium Uliginosum, Vaccinium Vitis-idea and Vaccinium Arctostaphylos. LLC Georgian Herbs is offering its customers dried Vaccinium Myrtillus fruits and leaves. Bilberries have been used for centuries, both medicinally and as a food in jams and pies. Bilberry fruit contains chemicals known as anthocyanosides, plant pigments that have excellent antioxidant properties. They scavenge damaging particles in the body known as free radicals, helping prevent or reverse damage to cells. Antioxidants have been shown to help prevent a number of long-term illnesses, such as heart disease, cancer, and an eye disorder called macular degeneration. Bilberry also contains vitamin C, which is another antioxidant.
