Aronia berries are also known to improve the circulation of blood, make blood vessels stronger, and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Aronia berries have the highest concentration of antioxidants present in any fruit! This results in an extremely high ORAC value of 80 units (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), which is a measure of an antioxidant's power to neutralize free radicals
- Promote Urinary Tract health
They are believed to be 5 to 10 times more effective to fight against UTI than cranberries! due to the higher content of quinic acid, which has been linked to the prevention of urinary infections.
