Aronia Berry (Chokeberry)
Also known as: Aronia, Aronia Berries, Aronia Melanocarpa, Black Chokeberry Fruit
The aronia plant is a shrub found in North America that grows primarily in damp wooded areas and around swamps or wetlands and it produces one of the more powerful superfoods known to man—the chokeberry. Also sometimes referred to as ariona berries, chokeberries are becoming increasingly popular among health and wellness enthusiasts, and for good reason. Studies have shown that chokeberries have many health benefits, including the ability to promote healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range, healthy weight, antioxidant function, liver health, artery health and more. What’s more, chokeberry is an excellent source for vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, folate, vitamin B-1, vitamin B-2, vitamin B-6, niacin, vitamin K, pantothenic acid, tocopherols, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc.
