Aronia Berry

 

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 problem exists.   

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.
