Aronia Berry Health Benefits
This plant is known by the botanical name Aronia arbutifolia or melanocarpa. Aronia is also known as Chokeberry. Aronia berries are native to eastern North America and are often found growing in swamps or damp woodlands. The hardy aronia shrub reaches about 2-4 meters in height and withstands salt and swampy conditions. The plant produces dark purple fruit clusters. Aronia have been an important and integral part of the native Indian diet for hundreds of years.
Aronia melanocarpa fruit and anthocyanins derived from the fruits have been studied intensively, particularly in Bulgaria and eastern Europe. Aronia appears to have compounds that are protective to the liver, have blood sugar stabilizing properties, anti-tumor, and have anti-inflammatory activity.
Aronia melanocarpa are one of the richest plant sources of phenolic substances, mainly anthocyanins–glycosides of cyanidin. Anthocyanins are water soluble pigments accounting for the dark blue and even black color of the fruits. The main active ingredients of Aronia melanocarpa fruit are phenolic substances, mainly flavonoids from the anthocyanin subclass. Aronia may be helpful in blood sugar control and reduction of cardiovascular risk factors.
Aronia Clinical Study on Blood Sugar and Blood Pressure
Combination therapy of statin with flavonoids rich extract from Aroniaberry fruits enhanced reduction in cardiovascular risk markers in patients after myocardial infraction (MI).

This was a double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel trial. Forty-four patients (11 women and 33 men, mean age 66 years) who survived myocardial infraction and have received statin therapy for at least 6 months (80% dose of 40mg/day simvastatin) were included in the study. The subjects were randomised to receive either 3x 85mg/day of chokeberry flavonoid extract (Aronia melanocarpa E) or placebo for a period of 6 weeks. The study extract was a commercially-available product of the following declared composition: anthocyans (about 25%), polymeric procyanidines (about 50%) and phenolic acids (about 9%). Compared to placebo (ANOVA and Tukey’s test), flavonoids significantly reduced serum 8-isoprostans and Ox-LDL levels (by 38 and 29%, respectively), as well as hsCRP and MCP-1 levels. In addition, significant increase in adiponectin levels and reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure by a mean average of 11 and 7.2mmHg, respectively were found.

Aronia melanocarpa fruit juice is rich in phenolic antioxidants, especially flavonoids from the anthocyanin subclass. The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of Aronia melanocarpa fruit juice on plasma glucose and lipids in diabetic rats. Aronia melanocarpa fruit juice significantly decreased the streptozotocin-induced abnormalities in blood glucose and triblycerides in diabetic rats and might be useful in prevention and control of diabetes mellitus and diabetes-associated complications.
Aronia contains a high concentration of flavonoids and antioxidants. Aronia berries are full of flavonoids, trace minerals and phenolic phytochemicals, including anthocyanins, of which it contains one of the highest of any known plant (several times higher than cranberry juice). Some of these specific substances include cyanidin-3-galactoside, epicatechin, quercetin, caffeic acid, delphinidin, malvidin, petunidin, pelargonidin, and peonidin.
