Summary from reports below: 1. Beneficial health effects, protective
roll in cardiovascular diseases and cancer, antiviral, antibacterial,
antifungal and antiallergenic, prevent urinary infections. 2.
Improved insulin function and is a treatment for the obese patients
with metabolic syndrome. 3. prevent or suppress oxidative stress.
4. repairs the liver. 5. protects against infection. 6. a promising
therapeutic source to suppress human colon or colorectal cancers.
7. improves cell adhesion which reduces oxidation and disease,
improves growth of new blood vessels from old blood vessels, contains
flavionoids that reduces Atherosclerosis (cholosterol). 8. potential
against pneumococcal infections. (Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria)
9.prevents KappaB a function that regulates the ability to stop
disease in the body and improves the Sodium Pottasium Pump that
generates electricity to run the body.
high amounts of phenolic compounds. Bilberries are known for its
exceptionally high amounts of anthocyanins with powerful antioxidant
capacity. They have been shown to possess beneficial health effects,
like having a protective role in cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
Many flavonoids also seem to have antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal
and antiallergenic properties. The effect of ingested cranberry
(V. oxycoccus) juice has been shown to prevent urinary tract infections
in women." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21706429
the adipocyte differentiation via the insulin pathway. Furthermore,
bilberry extracts might be used as a potential complementary treatment
for the obese patients with metabolic syndrome." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21385419

eliminated hepatic collagen deposits. These results indicate that
BE, in a dose dependent manner, induces the resolution of liver
fibrosis by decreasing oxidative stress..." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21163320
Note: Means it reduces liver fibrosis
which decreased oxidative stress, or in other words a liver with
fibrosis causes oxidative stress.
present results suggest berry juice polyphenols as inhibitors
of adherence of N. meningitidis. Thus the binding of meningococci
to berry juice polyphenols might be protective for the host against
the infection." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21086548
The extraction protocol and conditions we used were effective
for anthocyanin extraction. A(V.uli) could be a feasible practical
research tool and a promising therapeutic source to suppress human
colon or colorectal cancers." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21034658
of the most significantly down-regulated genes included genes
coding for AOX1, CYP2E1 or TXNIP implicated in the regulation
of oxidative stress, JAM-A coding for adhesion molecules
or VEGFR2 implicate in regulation of angiogenesis.
Other genes were up-regulated, such as CRB3, CLDN14 or CDH4 potentially
associated with increased cell-cell adhesion and decreased paracellular
permeability. These results provide a global integrated view of
the mechanisms involved in the preventive action of bilberry anthocyanin-rich
extract against atherosclerosis."
findings indicate that cranberry, bilberry and crowberry juices
have potential against pneumococcal infections.
extract administration also profoundly elevated the Na(+)-K(+)-(KappaB)
ATPase activity and mitochondria membrane potential (??(m)), which
was reduced in the stressed group. Bilberry extract exhibited
protective effect by scavenging free radicals and attenuating
mitochondrial dysfunction in the liver of restraint stressed mice.
It may be used as a promising therapeutic agent in preventing
and delaying the life-related disease." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20620202
