HEALTH BENEFITS OF ARONIA BERRIES
- Improve blood circulation and strengthen blood vessels
Aronia berries are also known to improve the circulation of blood, make blood vessels stronger, and reduce the risk of heart disease. Ripe Aronia fruits contain a large number of phenols, which disinfect the bloodstream and the body, promote healing of wounds, removing toxic substances from the body, reduce inflammation, improves the elasticity of blood vessels, and prevent them from clogging.
- Richest fruit-based antioxidant source
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
- 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. They have also been shown to reduce the micro-organism growth of several bacteria such as Escherichia coli
- Balance of blood pressure vessels
Among the top 5 benefits it brings, Aronia helps greatly in keeping blood pressure at normal levels. The dark pigmented berries have been known to prevent spasms in blood vessels, keeping the blood pressure far from the “danger zone”. The juice or tea from chokeberry is highly recommended to anyone having problems with the circulatory system and blood pressure.
- Preventive action or help with the treatment of Diabetes
Recent studies concluded that consumption of the “super berries” would not increase blood sugar levels and it can even lower them. Aronia can be very beneficial for people who want to prevent diabetes and it can also help people manage diabetes-associated conditions. Aronia juice is also believed to have a positive contribution towards fighting Diabetes
- Gastro-protective effect
Aronia berries have also been proven to help to treat stomach problems including gastric ulcers, diarrhea. That theory has been analyzed by an animal study in 2004, which showed that the Aronia berry’s antioxidant effects had a gastroprotective effect when treating the acute gastric hemorrhagic lesion in rats. This study suggested to scientists that it can be a natural effective treatment for stomach problems in humans (including ulcers).
Proving once again to be an extremely valuable fruit, dried Aronia is great medicine for kidney and stomach problems.

Aronia berries also serve as anti-carcinogenic agents. These miraculous black colored berries have a great effect on cancer cells, as they're known to be rather effective, especially on patients suffering from colon cancer.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF BEETROOTS
Beetroot is of exceptional nutritional value, rich in calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C.
They are also an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fiber, manganese, and potassium.
- Promoting healthy heart
Beets are a great source of nitrates.
Nitrates are compounds that convert to nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide opens up your blood vessels, which helps lower blood pressure and heart rate.
Plants that naturally contain nitrates, like beets, also contain vitamin C and other compounds that prevent them from becoming nitrosamines
- Reducing inflammation levels
The betalain found in beets can reduce inflammation, due to its ability to interfere with the inflammatory signaling process.
The anti-inflammatory effects are so promising that some researchers believe beetroot extract supplements could rival the benefits of certain synthetic drugs
The beets have been used as an aphrodisiac since the time of the ancient Greeks, who attributed the beauty and allure of Aphrodite (goddess of love) to her insatiable appetite for beets
