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.
The formula of Solgar ® Bilberry Horse Chestnut Complex includes not only the two key ingredients bilberry and horse chestnut. A blend of traditional botanical and plant extracts has been added to provide holistic support.
