Bilberry is one of the richest naturally occurring sources of anthocyanosides, which are derivatives of anthocyanins. Anthocyanosides are the primary bioactive compounds in bilberries and are responsible for their characteristic bluish-black colour. Research has found that bilberries contain higher anthocyanoside levels than other berries, such as strawberries, cranberries and raspberries.
In vitro research has demonstrated that bilberry is able to decrease oxidative damage in cells, including light-induced oxidative damage in retinal photoreceptors. Bilberry is also used in Herbal Medicine as an astringent and to help relieve diarrhoea.
