A newly rediscovered antioxidant superfruit…Purple aronia health benefits are amazing. Purple aronia looks similar to blueberries but these tiny berries have twice as much antioxidant power as cranberries and 4x as much as pomegranates, strawberries, goji berries and blueberries according to the USDA.
These fruits are full of anthocyanins – and studies have found that this type of antioxidant can help fight diseases caused by oxidative stress and free radicals including certain types of cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic inflammation and liver function.
They are available as a whole fruit and can be used to make wine, jam, sauce, syrup, and tea. Unripe aronia is tannic and sour. When fully ripened its deliciously sweet.
