Aronia and Vasorelaxation

What does this mean for you?

We are all ears for anything that has “relax” in it. Far too often, the words we feel are stressed, tired, nervous, anxious, “deer-in-the-headlights…” Relatable?

The aronia berry is being studied for anything and everything because the findings in studies have been incredible. Did you know that fresh aronia berries posses the highest antioxidant activity among common berries?1 Antioxidants are incredibly important as they neutralize, or in other words, make harmless, free radicals in our system. Most present-day diseases are caused by damage from these free radicals.2

Vasorelaxation has been found when consuming aronia products.3,4,5 Vasorelaxation means that arteries expand through the body, which lowers blood pressure. Generally, when you have low blood pressure, you feel sleepy. Think of it this way: many people wake with low blood pressure, so they drink coffee. The caffeine squeezes the arteries, which then gives the boost you need to get going in the morning.

Could drinking aronia juice help you sleep better? Possibly. Could aronia juice lower your blood pressure? Possibly. It might be worthwhile to talk to your doctor about the power of aronia juice.
