Autumn is finally here, and that means it’s harvest time for many of the berries we use in our cold-pressed juices. One of our favorite elixirs includes the Aronia berry: our Cold Pressed Energy Aronia/Blackberry. Is your mouth watering yet?
From the Family Farm
The Aronia berry is native to Wisconsin, so that’s where we go to get the freshest, juiciest berries with the highest level of antioxidants. In the Garden, we work with a small family farm to ensure sun-ripened, delicious, quality berries every single time, with no pesticides, genetic modification, or other potentially harmful farming techniques meaning it's all organic! This results in a berry that is so fresh, the flavor jumps right out of the bottle.
Berry Big Benefits
The taste of our Aronia berry isn’t the only thing you’ll love. Aronia is a super berry, which means it’s packed with antioxidants. These antioxidants help your body defend against damage caused by free radicals that could otherwise lead to chronic conditions like heart disease. The immune system support you receive from Aronia berries can help you fight off infection and illness, while also reducing inflammation.
A recent study named Aronia berries the King of Antioxidants! When compared to other popular berries—those specifically chosen for their antioxidant properties—the Aronia berry comes out on top. Even more antioxidant power is packed into an Aronia berry than elderberries, cranberries, blueberries, pomegranates, and Goji berries.
In addition to other beneficial nutrients like quercetin and quinic, plus loads of minerals and vitamins, Aronia berries are also low in sugar.
These all add up to an elixir that can help you fight infection, as well as:
When we pair it with our blackberries—also a significant source of antioxidants—you can’t lose.
How We Make It
We puree the entire berry in our Aronia Energy Elixir because many of the medicinal properties are in the skin and seeds. We then combine this with pureed blackberry, probiotics, apple juice and Guayasa for an elixir you’ll love.
As always, our juices are cold pressed, stored and shipped below forty degrees, and kept cold at your local grocer so that you always get the very best flavor, texture, freshness, and health benefits out of every single bottle.
