INGREDIENTS:

BilberriesBilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus)

Bilberry fruit contains potent chemical compounds known as anthocyanidins, plant pigments that have excellent antioxidant properties. Bilberry is rich in many other nutrients and beneficial compounds including Vitamin C, another powerful antioxidant.

Bilberries are linked to reduced inflammation and blood sugar levels, as well as may improve brain function, fight off bacteria, and improve digestion.

Bilberry fruit and extract are considered generally safe. However, if there is a sensitivity or allergy to tannins then avoid bilberry.
