Bilberries are a small dark blue fruit. They are similar in appearance to blueberries but are a bit smaller, softer, and darker. These superfoods have been used for medicinal purposes as far back as the Middle Ages, when their juice was traditionally used to dye linen and paper.

In modern times, bilberries are linked to a number of health benefits ranging from improved vision to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

Here are some of the most prominent benefits of bilberries.

 

Nutrient Rich

Similar to blueberries, bilberries are incredibly nutrient rich. A cup of bilberries contains 85 calories, 15 grams of natural sugar, and four grams of fiber. They also are made up of about 85% water, as well as sizable amounts of manganese and vitamins C and K, similar to blueberries.

Bilberries are very low in calories, but are a great source of water, fiber, manganese, and vitamins C and K.

Can Improve Vision

Bilberries are most well known for their purported ability to improve vision, night vision in particular. A few studies have focused on their ability to improve night vision but have been inconclusive in their findings.

Although, bilberries may still benefit your vision in other ways. One 2-year study in people with glaucoma, a condition that leads to a gradual loss of sight, found that taking 120 mg of bilberry anthocyanins daily improved visual function by around 30%, whereas the placebo group experienced worsened visual function.
