*Aronia, also known as the Chokeberry, has been an important and integral part of the native Indian diet for hundreds of years. The Aronia fruit and the anthocyanins derived from the fruits have been studied intensively. Aronia appears to have compounds that are protective to the liver, have blood sugar and blood pressure stabilizing properties as well as anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory activity. Studies also indicate that Aronia berry powder may be helpful in the reduction of cardiovascular risk factors.
Aronia berries contain a high concentration of flavonoids and antioxidants. Aronia berries are also full of trace minerals and phenolic phytochemicals, including anthocyanins, of which it contains one of the highest of any known plant species (several times higher than cranberry juice). Research has linked anthocyanins to an increase in peripheral circulation, increased vision, enhanced immune systems, and wound healing.
Aronia has the highest Antioxidant ORAC Value and is hailed by health experts as the most powerful Super Fruit. Higher ORAC values mean the Aronia Berry Powder contains more antioxidant power, which in turn means it is very beneficial for fighting off the damaging free radicals. The USDA recommends an intake of about 5,000 ORAC units a day. Unfortunately, the average person only receives about 20%-25% of this amount. Adding our organic Aronia powder to your diet can quickly increase your daily ORAC value.
