Lifestyle factors can accelerate the production of free radicals. Those include cigarette smoke, environmental pollutants, radiation, industrial solvents, certain drugs, and heavily processed foods. Since the age of industrialization, we have been facing exogenous sources at a rapidly growing rate. Coincidentally we’ve been losing access to the very thing that counters these free radicals: antioxidants.
What are the Benefits of Antioxidants such as Anthocyanins?
Some examples include berries, spinach, kale and nuts. Blue and purple foods typically are rich in anthocyanins, which are generally associated with cardiovascular health and they may be useful in treating several conditions including high blood pressure, colds, urinary tract infections and cancer.
The Aronia Berry - Antioxidant Superstar
Although the Aronia plant is native to eastern North America, it’s widely grown in Europe (especially in Poland, Croatia and Germany). Due to it’s sour and astringent taste, Aronia is also called “chokeberry”. The berries are commonly prepared into jams, jellies, fruit juices, syrups, tea, powder and wine.
Just add 50-100 ml of Aronia juice or a teaspoon of dried Aronia berries to your diet every day, and your body will thank you! You can find more information about Aronia berry health benefits on our website.
