Packed with polyphenols, Purple Aronia has the highest antioxidant ORAC score of any natural food we've seen. Aronia berris, also known as chokeberries, have anthocyanins and flavonoids higher than blueberries, cranberries, pomegranates and even acai. The secret to Aronia's power lies in its deep coloring. The intense color is the result of a potent concentration of antioxidant rich phytochemicals. This high level doesn't just help your body fight disease; it combats the entire aging process, making Aronia one of the most dynamically effective foods you can eat.

Though not well known in the USA, aronia berries have long been eaten in Eastern Europe and Russia for their antioxidant benefits where they even make them into wine.
