Other Uses

Traditionally, bilberry has been used to treat dysentery, diabetes, gastrointestinal inflammatory conditions, vaginal discharges, haemorrhoids, and to stop lactation. Externally, bilberry preparations have been used to treat wounds, ulcers and skin infections. More recently, other uses include treatment for bleeding gums, nose bleeds, spider veins, capillary fragility, peptic ulcers, Raynaud's syndrome and venous insufficiency (such as claudication).

Additionally, a double-blind placebo-controlled study confirmed that bilberry improves peripheral vascular disorders by improving subjective symptoms after 30 days' treatment (Mills & Bone 2000).
