Chokeberries, also known as Aronia, have been gaining popularity among health-conscious consumers looking to add more super-foods to their diets. The small dark berries of the Aronia melanocarpa plant 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.
Aronia berries have traditionally been used by Native Americans to cure colds, and recent research confirms the anti-viral properties and high vitamin C content of this extraordinary super-food. Scientists found Aronia melanocarpa to have anti-viral activity against the influenza virus as well as bacteriostatic activity against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli.
A growing body of scientific evidence shows that Chokeberry polyphenols’ antioxidant capacity powerfully targets numerous degenerative disorders from cancer and atherosclerosis to impaired glucose metabolism (pre-diabetes) and blood lipid abnormalities (high LDL cholesterol). Chokeberry is also emerging as a major cardiovascular protector. Touted as a “super-food,” only recently has the chokeberry been recognized as a frontline defense against multiple diseases of aging.
The carotenes found in chokeberries are able to dramatically reduce oxidative stress in the eyes, thereby reducing the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts.
Carotenes are some of the most powerful antioxidants and are found in significant levels in chokeberries. One of the most damaging processes of free radicals affects the brain and cognitive pathways. The anthocyanins (blue pigmented polyphenols) found in chokeberries have been directly linked to increasing neural pathway activity and reducing oxidative stress in the brain, thereby reducing the appearance of Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other age-related cognitive disorders.
ChokeBerry Forte™ provides the highest dose per serving of this amazing berry as well as a proprietary blend of antioxidants that have been clinically validated to add to the inherently high ORAC value of chokeberry. ORAC, which is an acronym for oxygen radical absorbance capacity, is the pharmaceutical industry’s measure of a nutrient’s antioxidant rating.¨
