Bilberry Horse Chestnut Complex
- Blend of potent botanicals horse chestnut and bilberry
- Vegan & Vegetarian
Solgar® Bilberry Horse Chestnut Complex has combined an antioxidant rich berry (bilberry) with an antioxidant rich nut (horse chestnut), alongside several other botanicals.
Bilberries grow on low-growing shrubs with red, blue and purple coloured flowers. They are native to Northern Europe but can also be found in North America and Northern Asia. Due to their size and colour they can easily be mistaken for blueberries, but bilberries in comparison are of a deeper blue colour and have a slight grey haze. Similar as blueberries, they are a source of many phytonutrients, and especially antioxidants. They are a rich source of anthocyanins, which are components giving it the dark blue colour and have an extremely high antioxidant content.
There are over 15 species of horse chestnut, but the European version is the one commonly used in supplement and herbal medicines. Horse chestnuts grow on trees and are encased in a spiky, green outer layer. Once they fall to the ground they will have transformed into a shiny brown. Horse chestnut has been used for centuries in traditional medicine.
Pineapple, a fruit originating from South America, is one of the richest sources of the enzyme Bromelain. This specific enzyme is derived from fresh pineapple and specially manufactured to ensure that the nutritional and enzymatic properties of Bromelain remain intact.
Rutin is a source of bioflavonoids, a powerful phytochemical.
Yarrow extract is called ‘Achillea Millefolium’ in Greek, after the mythical figure Achilles. It was believed this particular herb was used by ancient Greek warriors due to its healing benefits.
The Hawthorne berry grows throughout the world but is native to Northern Europe. This red berry belongs to the same family of plants as apples and roses. For centuries the flowers, berries, leaves, stem and bark of this plant have been used in traditional medicine.
Gotu Kola is a low growing herb native to South Asian tropical climates. It has been used in Asia for both culinary as medicinal purposes. Both traditional Chinese and Ayruvedic medicine recognise its healing properties.
Cayenne has been used for millennia as an herbal remedy as it contains capsaicin which is a phytochemical.
