Heart disease, stroke and diabetes are the big health robbers in our population. In the truest sense of prevention, this information will help you understand Aronia melanocarpa’s (aka choke berry) importance as a nutrient.
A review of research literature reveals studies showing significant health effects and benefits of aronia berry’s phytonutrients (plant based) on the body. One study from Bulgaria showed positive results for diabetics which concluded: “Accumulated data illustrated the hypoglycemic potential (lowering of blood sugar) of Aronia juice.”1 As a sugar addicted society, aronia can help lower the damage on heart and blood vessels from the ravages of a poor diet.
Another study in Poland assessed the effects of Aronia Berry’s antioxidant power. “The lead, aluminum and copper concentration was decreased while zinc concentration in red blood cells was increased”. 2. This has a significant impact by repairing damage to cells in the body. These are only two among many studies on the power of this little berry. Research is revealing the truth: Aronia is POWERFUL-something Native Americans have known for centuries.
I recommend drinking 2-4 ounces of a juice blend of aronia daily. It is a powerful healthful drink that has properties to improve heart function and lower inflammation in the body.
To your health! Don’t wait for disease to happen to start your health program.
