Superfood Aronia with strong antioxidant and anticancer activity from the Mount Athos Pharmacy
Aronia berries have been gaining popularity among health-conscious consumers looking to add more superfoods to their diets. They are packed with nutrients and antioxidants, such as vitamin C and anthocyanins, and offer wonderful health benefits for those who want to improve their health through better nutrition.
Dried aronia berries, which are available in many health food stores, can be eaten as a healthy snack, added to muesli, or used in muffins and other baked goodies. In some countries, dried aronia berries are used to make antioxidant-rich herbal tea!
The Aronia Berry – An Antioxidant Superstar
Aronia berries have the highest antioxidant capacity among berries and other fruits evaluated to date.
Antioxidants are believed to protect against many degenerative diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, and to slow down aging in general.
They are also a crucial component of anti-wrinkle diets as they can help protect your skin from the harmful effects of environmental pollutants, tobacco smoke, the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, and other factors that cause your body to produce free radicals.
Dried aronia berries are packed with fiber. Unlike the other macro-nutrients, fiber isn’t digested by your body. Instead, it passes relatively intact through your digestive tract, which is why it is associated with a number of unique health benefits. Some of these benefits include healthy bowel movements and overall improved bowel health, lower cholesterol levels, weight loss (when combined with exercise and an overall healthy weight loss diet), and reduced risk of problems related to blood sugar levels.
Proven Anti-Cancer Properties
Eating more berries in general is one of the best tips for people who are looking to reduce their risk of developing cancer, but aronia berries might be the ultimate winner when it comes to cancer-fighting foods. A team of researchers from the Department of Nutrition and Food Science at the University of Maryland analyzed anthocyanin-rich extracts made from aronia berries, for their chemopreventive activity against colon cancer.
