The bilberry bush is a relative of the blueberry, and its berries and leaves have been used for medicinal purposes since the Middle Ages for a variety of conditions. Bilberries are rich in antioxidants known as anthocyanins, which reduce inflammation and stabilize tissues containing cartilage, and polyphenols. They have been used for medicinal purposes ranging from eye conditions to diabetes. It is often used as a remedy for eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, dry eyes, age-related macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa. Bilberries are also thought to curb inflammation and protect against diseases with oxidative stress, including inflammatory bowel disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, gingivitis and age-related cognitive decline. Bilberries strengthen the walls of blood vessels and are sometimes taken orally for varicose veins and hemorrhoids.
