I’m also growing 50 Aronia seedlings in the garden. Therefore, I will write something about the health benefits of Aronia berries. Aronia has the highest ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity), which means the highest ability to absorb free radicals. A daily intake of 1670 units is recommended; chokeberry has 16062 µmol / 100 g of fruit. It provides inappropriately higher antioxidant protection than blueberries, cranberries, and pomegranates. This is exactly why Aronia juice is one of the strongest antioxidants in nature.
In addition, Aronia fruits are also rich in nutrients and medicinal substances. They contain a veritable treasure trove (1.55%) of macro and microelements such as iron, calcium, copper, iodine, boron, molybdenum, manganese, potassium, and cobalt. Ripe fruits are a real vitamin bomb – they contain a lot of vitamins A and C, several types of vitamin B, E and a scarce vitamin P, which promotes the proper functioning and absorption of vitamin C, beta-carotene, potassium, calcium, manganese, iodine, and phosphorus.
The Health Benefits of Aronia Berries Are Hidden in Anthocyanins
But it is essential to point out the extremely high content of the most important colorant, anthocyanin, which amounts to 600 – 2300 mg%. Most of these substances are in the shell and under the shell of the fruit. In this way, the plant protects the fruit’s contents, flesh, and seeds from the harmful effects of UV rays. The color and shine of the berries attract birds and other animals to feed on them and, in this way, carry out planting and propagation of the species. With such a composition, Aronia is a food and medicine that can reduce the risk of many diseases. All the components created by Aronia to protect itself from insects, fungi, bacteria, and viruses, which in one word are called phytoncides or plant antibiotics, are introduced by man into his organism and enjoy nature’s gifts. Aronia can successfully slow down the aging process and has an antiseptic effect. The most remarkable healing effects are attributed to its very high content of antioxidants. Similar to red grapes.
Aronia Juice Is the Most Powerful Antioxidant
Aronia juice is known among experts as the most powerful antioxidant known in nature. This is due to the fact that it contains vast amounts of tannin, biophenol (it can accelerate wound healing, regulate blood pressure, affect the elasticity of blood vessels, and remove toxic substances from the body), and flavonoids. Especially its anthocyanins content contributes to its incredible medicinal effectiveness, and Aronia has the most of all fruit species known to date. It is highly effective in preventing bacterial and viral infections, such as colds and flu, as the content of vitamin C in Aronia is up to ten times higher than in citrus fruits.
What Else Are the Health Benefits of Aronia Berries?
It is highly recommended to drink chokeberry juice and tea as a preventive measure, as it can reduce the risk of many (chronic) diseases, excellent prevention against the most severe diseases of the liver and other organs of the gastrointestinal tract and urinary system, colon carcinoma, inactive liver, and diseases of the heart and blood vessels, digestive problems, ulcers and inflammation of the eyes. Regular consumption of Aronia can improve eyesight, prevent the formation of cataracts, and protect the eyes from UV rays.
