Nature’s Answer Bilberry Extract Vision Complex  – With one of the most comprehensive herbariums in the world, Nature’s Answer® has identified Mother Nature’s unique botanical fingerprint on over 800 plant reference standards. Utilizing Advanced Botanical Fingerprint Technology™, these authenticated samples each serve as the standard by which all incoming raw materials are judged. Using carefully-controlled extraction techniques, we capture the holistic balance of each.
The bilberry extract, a relative of the cranberry, huckleberry, and American blueberry is a plant with bright green leaves and bell-shaped flowers that grow wild, primarily in northern Europe.
The bilberry looks very much like a blueberry, but its flesh is darker — somewhere between deep purple and crimson — and its flavor is tarter, says Steve Foster, a plant photographer who has written or co-written 17field and reference guides on medicinal plants and herbs, most recently National Geographic’s Guide to Medicinal Herbs.
The depth of color of the bilberry’s flesh is caused by those anthocyanosides — also found in dark berries to varying degrees. The fruit also has antimicrobial tannins, which are found in purple grapes and dark teas.
In the 18th century, German doctors prescribed the bilberry for intestinal conditions, among other things. In the 20th century (1987), Commission E, the German panel of experts that assesses the safety and effectiveness of herbs, approved the use of bilberry extract for diarrhea and inflammation of the mouth or throat.
