Herbal Bilberry, the Natural Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

By Kyle J. Norton

Inflammatory bowel disease is a general condition used to descript the disorders associated with the chronic inflammation of the digestive tract.

Inflammatory bowel disease can be classified into 2 types
* Ulcerative colitis caused by the inflammation and sores (ulcers) in the innermost lining of the large intestine and rectum.

* Crohn's disease associated with inflammation of the lining of the digestive tract other than the bowel and rectum.

Most common symptoms of IBD include vomiting, fever, night sweats, loss of appetite, general weakness, and waves of abdominal pain and discomfort.

If you experience persistently the aforementioned symptoms, you may have IBD, please check with your doctor to rule out the possibility.

The exact causes of IBD are unknown. However, researchers do know that aging, personal and family history, ethnicity, smoking and long-term stress are some prevalent factors that initiate the onset of the disease.

In the examined the unhealthy diet in risk of IBD, Dr. Mariabeatrice Principi, the lead scientist wrote, "IBD patients ate more calories (1970.7±348.4 vs. 1882.1±280.2 kcal/day, P=0.03), more lipids (68.9±15.2 vs. 59.4±19.0 g/day, P<0.001) and less fibers (11.9±4.7 vs. 15.5±8.3 g/day, P<0.001) than controls. No significant difference in total calories, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates or fibers was seen between CD and UC patients".

The findings strongly suggested if you are Western diet follower, you are at a higher risk of IBD developing.

Bilberry is a species of low-growing shrubs in the genus Vaccinium, belonging to the family Ericaceae, native to Northern Europe.

The plant has been used as herbs in traditional medicine for the treatment of acute and chronic diarrhea, gastritis, gastric ulcer, and duodenal ulcer, enterocolitis, ulcerative colitis, anemia, cystitis, kidney disease, and psoriasis, diabetes, etc.

Scientists on finding a potential compound for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) caused by dysregulation of the mucosal immune system, examined the potential of commonly used polyphenols found in bilberry on IBD.

Injection of dietary polyphenols showed significantly protective and therapeutic effects in the management of IBD by mediating the production of proinflammatory cytokines,  suppressing inflammatory pathways and cellular signaling mechanisms. 

Treatment of dietary polyphenols also enhanced the antioxidant defense, by inhibiting the overexpression of free radicals in patients with IBD.

Taken altogether, bilberry processed abundantly bioactive compounds polyphenols may be considered a functioning remedy for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), pending to the validation of larger sample size and multicenter human study.
