Basic Introduction and Main Benefits
One such class is anthocyanidins – and European bilberry is rich in this class of goodness. Anthocyanidins are the specific chemical compounds (carotenoids) that are responsible for the pigmentation of various fruits and vegetables, most notably purples and deep reds.
Anthocyanidins are most widely known for their free radical-neutralizing properties, preventing oxidation of certain compounds and helping the body better fight against incoming chemicals that can be harmful at worst and irrelevant at best. The health benefits of anthocyanidins include anti-carcinogen qualities,
better heart health, and a range of other positive effects. Anthocyanidins have also been shown to have a positive effect on collagen, the tissues under the skin.
According to Chu et al, in their chapter about bilberry in Herbal Medicine: Biomolecular and Clinical Aspects. 2nd Edition, bilberry is mostly known for its ability to support vision, but it has been reported to lower blood glucose and lipids, support healthy inflammatory response, and lower oxidative stress. This makes bilberry highly attractive for supplements targeting inflammation control, blood sugar support, antioxidant formulas, heart health and brain support.
