What are bilberries? Originally from Scandinavia and closely related to the blueberry and cranberry, bilberries are naturally rich in flavonoids and potent plant compounds known as anthocyanidins. The berries can be eaten fresh or dried and are often steeped in boiling water to make tea. Legend has it that British Royal Air Force pilots used to eat bilberry jam for their supper! Why choose Healthspan&’;s Bilberry? We source our berries from the Vaccinium myrtillus L. plant to obtain a powerful extract, equivalent to 5,000mg of whole bilberries.
