from the gallery of Vesa Leinonen
Description:

Lingonberry is the most valuable berry in the Nordic region, it grows abundant and it has unique nutritional values and good health benefits like antioxidants and organic acids. The traditional medicine use goes back a long time in history. Here are some facts from wikipedia: " In folk medicine, V. vitis-idaea has been used as an apéritif, astringent, antihemorrhagic, anti-debilitive, depurative, antiseptic (especially for the urethra), a diuretic, a tonic for the nervous system, and in various ways to treat breast cancer, diabetes mellitus, rheumatism, and various urogenital conditions.[14] In traditional Austrian medicine the fruits have been administrated internally as jelly or syrup for treatment of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, kidneys and urinary tract, and fever". - wikipedia
