Bilberry Young Shoot - Vaccinium myrtillus
A rich source of anthocyanins, bilberry contains powerful antioxidants and exerts a small hypoglycemic effect that may play a role in preventing cardiovascular and metabolic disease. Its root system, which reflects some similarities with human microcirculation, protects against soil degradation. Rich in tannins, bilberry young shoots have angio-protective qualities that improve microcirculation in cerebral, retinal and inner ear tissues. Birds are known to seek bilberries to aid with night vision.
On a spiritual and mental-emotional level, bilberry young shoot (similar to black currant bud) protects against negative thought patterns.
Phytoembryonic plant medicine, similar to western botanical medicine, relies on the extraction of a variety of plant phytochemicals, nutrients, and energetics to exert therapeutic effects. The plant bud, composed mainly of meristem cells, is the most concentrated and vital part of the plant, since it houses all of a plant's developmental information. Meristem cells are undifferentiated embryological tissue capable of specializing function based on living conditions. Thus, meristem cells are the factory, motor, and blueprints for an immature plant, giving functional instructions to the embryonic tissue, and driving its growth to thrive in a specific environment.
