BLUEBERRYBLUEBERRY vaccinium myrtillus
also: Huckleberry or Bilberry

This useful plant contains anthocyanosides that may help reduce or eliminate bruising by stabilizing collagen, increasing intercellular Vitamin C levels and strengthening capillaries! American folk medicine has given rise to current studies using the blueberry to aid in improving vision and optical health! Other studies are underway for its use in diabetes, dysentery, inflammation, intestinal problems, scurvy and typhoid. So, eat a handful of blueberries, a blueberry muffin, blueberry pancakes, or blueberry scones today!
