This sweet, bluish black berry went to medical school. Some of its siblings—including cranberry, blueberry, and huckleberry—studied medicine, too, but Bilberry herb is the true doctor in the family. The berries sprout from small, wiry branches on a shrub that grows predominantly in wooded areas of northern Europe and sections of western Asia. The ripe fruit is best for therapeutic purposes, but the leaves also are used.

Bilberry herb has a long history of use, both as food and medicine, but renewed interest was sparked when Second World War pilots noticed that their night vision improved after they ate bilberries. Bilberry strengthens capillaries, stabilizes collagen, reduces blood clotting, lowers blood sugar, relaxes smooth muscle and helps to prevent and cure ulcers. It also has antioxidant action.
