Description

Native to Eurasia and North America, the dark blue berries and leaves of the bilberry bush have been used medicinally for eye conditions, diabetes, diarrhea, mouth inflammation, urinary issues, and scurvy prevention (thanks to their high vitamin C content) since the Middle Ages.

Why We Love Bilberry, the eye and nerve supporter

At the clinic, we often use bilberry to help Bartonella patients with their visual disturbances. It’s particularly common for them to struggle with ocular symptoms, such as light sensitivity, eye fatigue, eye pain, nerve pain, floaters, and others. Bilberry can add excellent immune and antioxidant support and offers extra protection for nerves and eyes. It’s also healthy and protective for vasculature and small capillaries, especially the ones found in the eyes.
