Bilberry Leaf

Bilberry Leaf for Sale

Bilberry leaf has a mild flavor and makes a satisfying tea, often combined with other herbs, dried fruit and flowers.

Bilberry leaf doesn’t contain anthocyanosides, the antioxidant compounds found in the fruit. The leaf’s bitter quality is owing instead to a high tannin content, which lends the herb astringent properties.

Historically, bilberry leaf has been by herbalists to counter inflammation in connective tissue associated with bruising, digestive disorders, the degeneration of collagen and peripheral nerve damage.
