What are bilberries?
The bilberry is a small dark-purple berry native to Europe. Each berry contains plant pigment flavonoids called Anthocyanadins. These are the key ‘active’ ingredients within the bilberry fruit. The berries also contain high levels of vitamins A and C.
Why are bilberry supplements so popular?
The key active ingredient within bilberries, Anthocyanadins, may help to promote normal blood circulation and maintain strong blood vessels and capillaries. Many health practitioners believe that these flavonoids can help to counteract the effects of harmful ‘free-radicals’, particularly around the eyes.
As a rich source of vitamins A and C, bilberries may also support the maintenance of healthy vision. British pilots flying during World War 2 reported that eating high quantities of bilberries on a daily basis helped to improve their night vision.
Why choose Simply Supplements Bilberry?
Bilberries can be eaten fresh, dried, or in tea, but many people find that they have a bitter taste. Therefore a daily supplement may offer a more convenient and palatable alternative.
These Super Strength Bilberry 2000mg extracts are available in easy-to-swallow EasyGest capsules. Each capsule provides a potent 25% of the active ingredient Anthocyanadin, to ensure that you receive your daily dose in one convenient capsule.

|Q:||I am interested in bilberry supplements as both my husband and myself spend a lot of time in front of the computer screens. He is using lenses, while I have myopia and use glasses.
I have found out that the recommended daily dosage of bilberry supplement is between 20 to 160 mg. Your dosage seems to be much higher than that. Could you please explain why?
|A:||There is currently no strict recommended daily allowance (RDA) specified for bilberry supplements. You may find that some companies or studies suggest to take between 80-160mg one to three times a day but this could vary depending on how the product is manufactured. Our Bilberry 2000mg provides 500mg extract of bilberry and we recommend taking one a day. It is important to know that no toxicity has been found even at high doses, as bilberry extract is water soluble and excess is quickly excreted through the urine and bile.|
