Black Bilberry: natural ingredient of Kalospeed

The fruits of blueberry contain many organic acids (malic, citric, etc.). Toning the digestive tract, sugars, tannins, pectin, myrtillin (glucoside coloring), anthocyanins, vitamins A and C and in a lesser quantities vitamin B. In addition to their food properties and refreshing, cranberries are astringent, antidiarrheal, antiseptic and wormers and are recommended in the following cases:

  • Circulatory disorders of the venous system, such as heavy legs, varicose veins, phlebitis, varicose ulcers and hemorrhoids. Blueberry anthocyanins act protecting and strengthening the walls of the capillaries and veins: thus prevent the leakage of protein and fluid in the tissues and promote the reduction of edema and congestion. In addition, cranberries act on the heart by increasing the strength of the heart muscle (myocardium)
  • Blueberry anthocyanins act on the capillaries of the retina improve the blood supply of the cells sensitive to light and are very useful to improve the adaptation to darkness. The use of the cranberry is particularly indicated in cases of diabetic retinopathy, myopia and in cases of retinal degeneration due to hypertension, arteriosclerosis or other causes such as, for example, pigmentary retinitis
  • The Blueberry decongests and normalizes the functioning of the intestine, especially the colon. It was experimentally verified that both the berries that the leaves of the blueberry slowing down the excessive development of Escherichia coli, responsible for the intestinal flora and other urinary infections. The blueberry exerts an antiseptic action on organisms such as the urinary bladder and the urethra. Women who suffer from recurrent cystitis we recommend taking continuous of blueberries for a time ranging from one to three months in order to prevent relapse
  • The leaves of blueberry deserve a special mention; contain tannins, flavonoid glycosides and glucochina, a substance that lowers the content of glucose (sugar) in the blood. They possess astringent and anti-diarrheal effects of the fruit but are also hypoglycemic; are then recommended to diabetics because it can reduce the doses of oral medications or those of insulin. Blueberry anthocyanin pigments (anthocyanins) have the following pharmacological activities: regeneration of the visual purple, protection of the arterial and venous vascular tunic, increased capillary resistance, protection of capillary permeability; anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, anti-platelet and anti-atherosclerotic
  • The vasoprotective action deemed vitaminotherapy P-like, is expressed especially at the level of the microcirculation and is in several respects, comparable to that of bioflavonoids (that constitute in fact The complex with vitamin P).

The combination of the above actions is difficult imputable to a unique mechanism of action: the blueberry is certainly capable of influencing the structure and func-
tions of cell membranes through interaction with enzymes, with the ion pumps; of stimulating the synthesis of mucopolysaccharides; of controlling the synthesis of endothelial prosta cyclin similar substances.

Have recently been investigated others specific mechanisms of action, often shared with other phenolic derivatives such as tannins, which is rich blueberry and among them we should highlight the superoxide ion, responsible for several pathological processes (in particular damage by ischemia, diabetes and cataracts).
This activity is conducted by the derived flavonoid anthocyanin and tannin. The inhibitory activity of aldose reductase, which catalyzes the reduction principally from glucose to sorbitol in subjects hyperglycemic causing an accumulation of sorbitol in the crystalline lens, in the nerves, in the retina and in the kidneys and which is responsible for a series of complications in these districts.

Blueberry anthocyanins have shown a remarkable ability to inhibit this enzyme and the high safety of use allows the employment indefinitely.
The blueberry, now used in modern herbalism as a dry extract is useful as an antioxidant helping to prevent diseases associated with aging.

The fruit of the blueberry contains blue type anthocyanin pigments, known as myrtillin. The power of anthocyanins dyes is established; they penetrate the cells to the bacteria by reducing or damaging their vitality.

For the presence of pigments anthocyanosides, bilberry is useful for the protection of the blood vessels. These would lead to a reduction of platelet aggregation by ADP (adenosine diphosphate), PAF (Platelet Activating Factor) and arachidonic acid.

According to a study conducted in South Africa in the Department of Medicine of the University of Cape Town, blueberry extracts would seem to prevent kidney. In this randomized, double-blind, were involved men with no history of kidney stones.
In the weeks of treatment, the power supply of the participants has been kept under control in order to assess the “intake of food and fluids”. The urine collected to the participants were then used to verify the degree of “urinary relative saturation of calcium oxalate”.

From these studies it was possible to estimate that the extract of blueberry ’able to alter the excretion of oxalate of calcium and increase the excretion of citrate. In addition, there was a decrease in the saturation of calcium oxalate. By means these results, the researchers suggested that the use of bilberry extracts may be a natural alternative for the treatment of calcium oxalate urolithiasis.

The daily intake of blueberry would help to increase the level of good cholesterol in the blood. This is what results from a study conducted by researchers at the ’University of Laval in Canada. The research was carried out on 30 men with high levels of bad cholesterol.
Another study would seem to demonstrate the same properties cholesterol control. The study carried out at the Department of Agriculture, directed by Agnes Rimando, shows that the antioxidants contained in blueberry would be able to reduce the levels of bad cholesterol without side effects.

The blueberry may help to reduce cholesterol and no side effects. This is what has been shown on mouse cells by Agnes Rimando of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in collaboration with experts from the School of Pharmacology at the University of Mississippi.
The secret of this fruit of the woods would be an antioxidant named pterostilbene, that activates a fat burner molecule explained the expert in the congress of the American Society of Chemistry. The Rimando has been found in blueberries for the first time in this study, supported by scientific evidence anecdotal knowledge about the health benefits of blueberries.

Pterostilbene has an action similar to that of ciprofibrate, an active principle present in the synthesis of anti-cholesterol drugs that lowers the concentration of LDL, the bad cholesterol. But ciprofibrate is not effective for all patients, and since it has a mechanism of action blunt, produces side effects such as nausea and muscle pain.

After having discovered the presence in the blueberry, the researchers tested pterostilbene on liver cells of mice, along with three other compounds present in the fruit. Among all, pterostilbene is more effective in lowering LDL. Also, as it does in a targeted manner by targeting and activating the cellular receptor for the protein fat-burning PPAR-alpha, is less toxic than ciprofibrate.
