The wild lingonberry, growing in sparse pine-woods and moors, has long been used to strengthen the immune system and to prevent colds, especially during the long winter period.
The berry is valued for its taste, richness in vitamins, and curative effect. Lingonberries make meat dishes a culinary experience, but they also boost the metabolism and improve digestion.
Lingonberries contain carotene and B-group vitamins, but are especially rich in vitamin C (30-40 mg / 100 g of berries), magnesium, iron, potassium and sodium.
Since ancient times, the lingonberry has been known to remove water from the human body and is still widely used to treat cystitis and kidney diseases. The different fruit acids, tannins and benzoic acid contained in lingonberry make it an effective means of treatment for rheumatism and joint disorders.
The anthocyanins found in wild lingonberries can support the normal functioning of the urinary tract. Potassium contributes to the normal functioning of muscles and nervous system, and maintaining normal blood pressure.
Lingonberries have also been known to lower cholesterol levels and to have an antibacterial effect.
