Global natural products pioneer BGG is well known in the industry as being a key supplier of Bilberry Extract. In 2013, BGG decided to brand and trade mark their Bilberry Extract as MyrtiPRO™. BGG’s MyrtiPROTM bears BGG’s hallmark for quality, purity, potency, and supply-reliability, all backed by BGG’s superior customer service.

Remarkable Health Benefits

MyrtiPRO™ has many benefits for eye health and is valuable as a supplement to protect vision and as an aid for relieving eye-fatigue and dry-eye; and may have benefits for eye conditions such as Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma and Myopia. There is an apocryphal story about allied pilots in World War Two; before night flights, pilots would ask for, and be given, bilberry jam, to assist with their night vision on approaches… One thing that is undeniable about BGG’s product; if you are looking for a bilberry extract, BGG’s MyrtiPRO™ is the best available anywhere.

The Best Bilberry in the World

BGG’s MyrtiPRO™ is extracted from the highest-quality wild bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus L.) found in Northern Europe. BGG has exclusive contracts developed over the years with harvesters in the richest, most fertile grounds.

All the fruits are selected and picked by hand, and after collection are batch-tested. Before being accepted by BGG, they pass both the BRC Food Technical Standard (BRC Global Standards is a leading safety and quality certification program, used by over 20,000 certificated suppliers in 90 countries, with certification issued through a worldwide network of accredited Certification Bodies).

Compliance with, and approval by, BRC Global Standards guarantees the standardization of quality, safety and operating criteria, and ensures that manufactures fulfil their legal obligations. All this provides protection for the end-consumer; and BRC Global Standards often now are a fundamental requirement of leading retailers.

Few are probably aware that bilberry plants are very difficult to cultivate; their nature is to be wild. And the soils and climate in Northern Europe are especially suited for the finest quality fruits in the quantities that are viable and that meet BGG’s stringent standards. BGG has done the research over the years, has forged the relationships, and is now the predominant buyer of the world’s bilberry harvest.

As a result of all this dedication, BGG’s MyrtiPRO™ benefits from having, as its essence, the most nutrient-concentrated fruit sources; BGG is able to trace each batch back to the grower. In addition to strong gatherer-relationships that translate into quality and reliability at source, buyers of BGG’s MyrtiPRO™ should also know that BGG’s advanced science and technology enables processing of the fruit into the purest and most potent extract. Buyers of MyrtiPRO™ benefit from BGG’s multi-million dollar investment that has been added to over the years.

The final result from BGG’s commitment in belief and time, and in searching for and developing strong relationships with the bilberry farmers, processing investment, hiring of scientists at Ph.D. level who analyze and test each and every batch of MyrtiPRO™, is a bilberry extract that has no equal.

And GMP standards (Guidelines and Inspection Checklists specifically developed for the Food Industry) are employed at every step, and each and every batch processed meets HACCP standards (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points – a systematic and preventive approach to food safety and biological, chemical, and physical hazards in production processes, to ensure maximum safety in the finished product).

Powerful Ingredients and Clinical Studies

Bilberries are rich in anthocyanins (anthocyanosides) that contain polyphenols with their strong anti-oxidant effects. So anthocyanins can relieve free radical damage; including that related to eye disease, for example macular degeneration and age-related cataracts. Anthocyanins also have been reported to help maintain synthesis of retinal rhodopsin to improve vision sensitivity and visual acuity.

Clinical studies indicate that Bilberry Extract can be effective in i) improving microvascular circulation health, ii) promoting blood capillary microcirculation in the eye, iii) enhancing blood and nutrition transformation around the eye; and iv) positively reducing eye fatigue and dry eye.

BGG MyrtiPRO™ is rich in more than 15 anthocyanins; with high concentrations: 36% under HPLC analysis.

And MyrtiPRO™ is highly stable and has a 36 month shelf life.
