What are Aronia Berries?
Aronia berries, specifically berries from the aronia Melanocarpa bush, are a black-colored
small, edible berry about 4-9 millimeters in diameter. They grow during the fall and ripen at the beginning of
wintertime in the northern hemisphere, and so can be found at farmer's markets across the northern continents
starting around Christmas time.
What makes Aronia Berries so healthy?
Aronia berries contain what may be the worlds highest concentration of the antioxidant
anthocyanin. Anthocyanin is the pigment that makes the berry so dark, (so dark in fact that this berry is the
world's best source of natural dye) and like all dark-colored fruits (blueberries, concord grapes, acai, etc.) it
has been shown to benefit your body in many ways.
What are the benefits of eating aronia berries?
High concentrations of anthocyanins are well documented in many fruits (most famously the dark
grapes that color red wine) to offer almost supernatural benefits. They work by boosting & assisting your
body's immune system, so naturally there are few ailments that they DON'T work to fight.
For instance; cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, liver failure, DNA
degradation, broken bones, burnt skin, and even viral infections have all been tested against high dosages of
anthocyanin, all to impressive results.
In fact, science has clearly shown that the only problems your body could have that anthocyanins
cannot help in some way are those that are 'genetic,' because your body's DNA instructions are to make sure that
How much it helps your condition, however, has too many personal
variables to discuss here, so you should consult a qualified doctor before taking mass dosages of this fruit juice
for your individual problem.
