–> WHAT IS AN ARONIA BERRY?
The Aronia Berry (also known as a chokeberry) has proven to be one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants (higher than any other berry). Though small, it is mighty! Its components have been found to:
-Improve function of the circulatory, respiratory, and digestive systems
-Prevent gastric damage
-Protect heart cells from cell membrane damage and DNA fragmentation
-Protect the liver from chemical damage
-Enhance overall wellness
and MORE! Come check out the Aronia booth to find out more information on this amazing plant.
