Health Benefits Of Organic Bilberries
Dried organic bilberries are a healthy treat that is loaded with beneficial nutrients. Bilberries were beloved by British pilots during WWII because they believed the berries improved their night vision. It turns out that they were not far from the truth. Studies show that antioxidant-rich bilberries can reduce the effects of age-related macular degeneration, and may help prevent cataracts.
That is not all that bilberries are good for. In particular, dried bilberries contain a class of antioxidants known as flavonoids, which prevent oxidative damage and help to strengthen blood vessels. Along with promoting eye health, this protective effect is essential for a healthy heart and cardiovascular system. Bilberries are also an excellent source of vitamins C and E, to protect the immune system and ward off illness.
