"Vitacost Billberry extract has all the ingredients that most of the name brands have. It is less expensive than other brands. I am very happy with the ingredients. The capules are small and so easy to take."
"I have been using this for several years. I was losing my night vision in my early 50's. I took Bilberry twice a day for two months and it all came back. I now take a daily maintenance dose. My day time colors got amped up, too. I also use this with the Muscadine Grape Seed Extract for extract antioxidant power. I will take these forever."
