Why Aronia Berries Outrank Others
These berries pack a powerful punch! Aronia berries contain tons of vitamins and minerals, including zinc, magnesium, iron, and vitamins C, B, and K. Compared to other fruits, aronia berries have the highest level of antioxidants, which are a chemical compound that protect your body’s cells from damaging effects of oxidation. Antioxidants are a natural anti-aging promotor, and are believed to protect against cancer and heart disease. From the inside of your body, to the appearance of your skin, fruits with high levels of antioxidants are incredibly beneficial!
The Anti-Aging Berry
Before diving into how aronia berries improve internal health and wellness, we cannot forget the body’s largest organ... your skin. Because of the high levels of antioxidants, aronia berries are an essential anti-aging component. They help protect your skin from harsh outside factors such as pollution, smoke and UV radiation, which can all contribute to wrinkles and aged skin. Aronia berries enhance youthfulness from the inside out!
