Weight 205 oz
Directions

The Tincture or Fluid Extract can be taken directly by adding the correct recommended amount to filtered water. However some people find the bitter taste of herbs in this form to be too strong, so the Tincture or Fluid Extract can be added to fruit juice to sweeten.
However in some cases it is preferable to evaporate the alcohol before taking the Tincture or Fluid Extract. This is advised with babies, children, the elderly, and if someone is sensitive to alcohol or recovering from alcohol addiction. This is very easy to do.
Serving:
Bilberry Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.
Traditionally Taken: Take 2-3 ml 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal practitioner.
20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

Contraindications

No known side effects. However if you are taking any prescription medications (especially for blood thinning), please consult your healthcare professional before using Bilberry Tincture.

Benefits

Bilberry Benefits
Eyesight
The Bilberry is extremely rich in the phytochemicals anthocyanosides – powerful antioxidants that have been found to have positive effects on vision in low lighting conditions. Anthocyanosides are responsible for the regeneration of rhodopsin, a purple pigment in the eye which is responsible for night vision. Bilberries may also improve the blood flow to the many small capillaries of the eye.
Digestive Health
Bilberries contain 5% to 10% tannins, which act as an astringent and it is these tannins that target the bowel, reducing intestinal inflammation, helping to treat diarrhoea.

The anthocyanins present in Bilberries increase stomach mucous which allows more complete breakdown of food. The increased stomach mucous also helps in the healing of stomach ulcers. The US National Institute of Health (NIH) recognises the health value of this berry and support its use for healing stomach ulcers.

Heart Health
Although more research is needed, preliminary studies show that the anthocyanosides present in Bilberries may strengthen blood vessels, improve circulation, and prevent the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, a major risk factor for atherosclerosis (plaque that blocks blood vessels, leading to heart attack and stroke).

Powerfully Antioxidant
The anthocyanins in Bilberries are responsible for their rich purple colour. Anthocyanins are members of a flavonoid group of phytochemicals that are extensively studied for their contribution to human health. Powerfully antioxidant, one of their most important health benefits is the ability to scavenge free radicals. Free radicals are rogue atoms or atomic groups that have lost at least one electron, forcing them to steal electrons from neighbouring molecules in the hope of stabilising themselves. Unsurprisingly, this can cause havoc in the body, leading to a whole host of health problems. Anthocyanins seek out these groups and donate electrons, stabilising the atoms, protecting cells from damage (oxidative stress) and neutralising free radicals.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Bilberry Tincture has been produced with the utmost quality in mind. The tincture is made from the berry which develops after flowering. After harvest the fruits are all checked to ensure that they pass for quality and are mature enough to be used in the tincture process. After careful selection and cleaning the berries undergo a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.
