Aronia Berry

What is aronia?  It is not our day-to-day fruit on the go like bananas or apples, but you may just want to include it on a regular basis after learning more about this super fruit. 

Aronia Berry (Ar-on-éa) is native to the United States and considered to be one of the most nutritionally dense fruits on the planet.  It also considered the ultimate Superfood based on scientific research and centuries of indigenous use.  The aronia berry, due to its phytonutrient complex, has a rich flavor and is distinguished by its signature, dark-purple pigment. 

Aronia berries have 2x the antioxidants of imported acai, 3x the antioxidants of blueberries and 8x the antioxidants of pomegranates. 

Here are some tips on how to use Aronia in your daily diet:
Aronia Flax - Shake and add one tbsp. to yogurt, smoothies, a drink, or right off the spoon. 

Aronia Concentrate - Just add one tbsp. to iced tea, smoothies, or your beverage of choice.

Fresh Frozen Berries - One cup of aronia berries is the antioxidant equivalent of 24 oz of blueberries.

Freeze Dried Powder - Two tsp. in yogurt, smoothies, oatmeal, or any other snack makes a meal for less than a dollar a day.
