Berries for Life Aroniaberry for Heart Health - 60 Capsules

Berries for Life Aroniaberry Promotes Heart Health.  Aroniaberries (Aronia melanocarpa—also known as chokeberries) are arguably nature’s best kept secret. Today they are increasing in popularity due to their remarkable health benefits.

Bitter is better (and dark is best).
Modern science proves the antioxidant strength of the bitter black aroniaberry is among the highest measured to date.  Along with heart health benefits, research suggests a strong link between aroniaberry and:

  • Cardiovascular support.
  • Antioxidant activity.
  • Healthy inflammation response.
  • Immune support.
  • Gastric support. 

Their Premium Aroniaberry Supplement:
In ONE serving you get:

  • The most holistic, full-spectrum aroniaberry profile (our whole food ground aroniaberry combined with our concentrated anthocyanin-standardized extract and aroniaberry juice powder).
  • At least 950 ORAC units—more than the antioxidant capacity in an average serving of fruits and vegetables.
  • At least 17mg anthocyanins (a USDA survey suggests we aren’t getting enough in our diet--only 12.5mg are consumed daily on average).
  • A simple and convenient way to benefit from the aroniaberry phytonutrients that will help you maintain optimal health.

Hierarchy of Actives
Polyphenols are a large family of natural phytonutrients widely distributed in plant foods. They are characterized by the presence of more than one phenol unit per molecule.

Flavonoids (or "bioflavonoids") make up an important subcategory of polyphenols that exhibit potent antioxidant activity. Many health promoting effects are attributed to flavonoids.

Anthocyanins, with their incredible antioxidant and health-promoting potential, are one of the most widely-studied flavonoid categories. Anthocyanins are the water-soluble pigments that are responsible for the dark red-purple color found in fruits, vegetables, and flowers. The darker the berry, the more anthocyanins that are present.

Aroniaberry contains more anthocyanins and antioxidant capacity than any other North American cultivated berry. Each berry species contains a unique anthocyanin profile that contributes to its distinct health benefits. The aroniaberry contains 4 predominant anthocyanins:

  • cyanidin-3-galactoside
  • cyanidin-3-glucoside (C3G)
  • cyanidin-3-arabinoside
  • cyanidin-3-xyloside

Antioxidant Ability
Perhaps one of the most important health attributes of dark berries that are high in anthocyanins is the antioxidant capacity. Antioxidants neutralize free radical buildup, also known as oxidative stress. Free radicals are linked to the development of a number of degenerative diseases and conditions. Free radicals are by-products of normal bodily functions and are inevitable in daily life. However, it is the delicate balance of antioxidants and free radicals that determine our state of health. As we age, the body doesn't function as efficiently and as a result, an excess of free radicals are produced. They can do their best to arm ourselves by including sufficient amounts of antioxidants in our diet or by supplementing our diet with products rich in dark berry anthocyanins, including aroniaberry anthocyanins.

The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) test is one commonly used method for measuring the antioxidant capacity of a substance. The higher the ORAC value, the higher the antioxidant activity.
A study by Pilaczynska et al. in 2005 found that incorporation of aroniaberry anthocyanins by athletes resulted in a reduction in oxidative markers.

Additional Health Benefits
Aroniaberry is valuable not only for its antioxidant potential but also for the many particular health benefits that are substantiated in studies in the areas of:

  • Cardiovascular support
  • Healthy inflammation response
  • Immune support
  • Gastric support

Scientific Research at a Glance
Aroniaberry's extensive use in traditional medicine has interested modern researchers who continuously explore the health benefits of natural products and search for the active compounds like anthocyanins and the mechanisms by which they function. Current studies range from in vitro laboratory studies to animal studies and even human clinical studies.

Some noteworthy findings include:

  • In a human clinical trial, subjects taking aroniaberry anthocyanins experienced a decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. There was also a drop in LDL-oxidation (which yields free radicals) as well as a drop in C Reactive Protein (CRP), a factor involved with inflammation. (Narnszewicz et al., 2000)
  • In a human pilot study, subjects who consumed aroniaberry anthocyanins experienced an increase in flow-mediated dilation of the brachial artery, indicative of improved circulation. (Bell et al., 2001)
  • An animal study showed that when aroniaberry was administered to rats with gastric hemorrhage, the gastric mucosal protection was proportional to the increased anthocyanin levels from the aroniaberry extract. (Matsumoto et al., 2004)

Berries For Life Aroniaberry is the Answer
Their aroniaberry supplement includes a standardized extract that delivers consistent high levels of the active aroniaberry anthocyanins, combined with a whole food aroniaberry powder that delivers the full aroniaberry matrix, just as if you were eating the actual berries. They also include an aroniaberry juice powder for an added boost of aroniaberry phytonutrients to deliver a well-rounded and complete product to help you stay healthy.

Berry Antioxidants
Traditional wisdom and now modern research recognize the health benefits of dark berry antioxidants.

Among fruits, dark berries contain high levels of diverse phytonutrients known as polyphenols. Polyphenols are a large family of natural phytonutrients widely distributed in plant foods. They are characterized by the presence of more than one phenol unit per molecule. Flavonoids (or "bioflavonoids") make up an important subcategory of polyphenols that exhibit potent antioxidant activity. Many health promoting effects are attributed to flavonoids. Anthocyanins, with their incredible antioxidant and health-promoting potential, are one of the most widely-studied flavonoid categories. Anthocyanins are the water-soluble pigments responsible for the dark red-purple color found in fruits, vegetables, and flowers. The darker the berry, the more anthocyanins that are present.

Berries for Life only concentrates on dark berries because dark berries concentrate the antioxidants.

Dark Berries are Better Berries
All berry phytonutrients are beneficial. But they are not all equal. At Berries for Life, they are here for only one reason, and that is to concentrate on the best of the best nutrients.

A significant number of studies have shown that dark berry antioxidants (such as anthocyanins) are beneficial for cardiovascular health, reducing age-associated oxidative stress, improving neuronal and cognitive brain function as well as ocular health, and protecting genomic integrity.  In addition, dark berry antioxidants have been shown to enhance the immune system and help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

They base their products on extensive research showing the health benefits of dark berry antioxidants. Their supplements are scientifically-documented, well-formulated,  and of the highest-potency, featuring dark berries like aroniaberry, elderberry, black currant, blueberry, and cranberry.

You can be assured you are buying an all-natural premium product that maintains consistent levels of activity and bioavailability.
