Aronia Berries

We picked Aronia Berries today. Some were already dehydrated on the bush, it's so dry here. We are working on getting the bushes hydrated as best we can. Because they are a native plant they are still growing. I will freeze what I got and throw a handful in my morning smoothies all winter long.

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.

Where can I find aronia berries?
