Pure natural Superfood
Aronia berries provide a variety of benefits thanks to the incredibly high levels of antioxidants found in their plant pigments (anthocyanins) and the micronutrients (polyphenols) they contain. Our bodies create free radicals as a natural byproduct of metabolism. A number of factors can cause the number of free radicals in the body to increase, such as stress, alcohol, infection and even radiation. Too many free radicals in the body can lead to what is known as oxidative stress, whereby the free radicals begin to attack or break down healthy cells leading to a greater risk of disease and illness.
Native North American
Aronia is a native North American plant that is widely grown in Europe for fruit production. Aronia plants can easily be grown in the North American ecosystem in growing zones 3 to 7. Aronia, also called chokeberry, is a decidious, self pollinating, perennial shrub. Growing Aronia berries in your garden brings many advantages. It is a very decorative and robust plant. Aronia is able to withstand insect infestations and is adapted to the natural ecosystem. Better than non native plants, it can easily handle diseases as well as natural variations in climate. Once planted in your garden, the Aronia plant requires just a little care.
