The bilberry, a close relative of the blueberry, cranberry and huckleberry, is a member of the Vaccinium plant family. In World War II, British pilots in the Royal Air Force began consuming bilberry jam for several weeks prior to night missions in order to promote healthy eye function*. It was the success of this peculiar dietary ritual which prompted medical researchers to explore the phytochemistry of bilberries and isolate the active components of this delicious food. Eventually they discovered that the natural pigments and colors were responsible for the special, visual support* properties of bilberry. They named the compound anthocyanidin and classified it as a member of the bioflavonoid family.
