Two medical conditions have more Americans on drugs than just about any other issue there is. And those are high…
- blood pressure
You might even be taking meds for one, or both of them, yourself. But new research reveals a better way.
Instead of two risky drugs for two conditions, there’s one humble BERRY with a peculiar name that could help dial down both.
The benefits don’t end there either. This all-natural therapy can also reportedly enhance blood flow and fight off sickening inflammation, too.
Packed with antioxidant power
Everyone loves blueberries. And it’s not just because of the taste alone.
Blueberries are packed with age-fighting, disease-beating antioxidants. In fact, they’re so loaded with healthy nutrients that they’re often categorized as a superfood.
But as fantastic as blueberries are, they have some serious competition. You’ve probably never heard of an aronia berry. But these potent fruits beat the blue off of blueberries.
Aronia berries LOOK like their blueberry cousins. But they have roughly TRIPLE the disease-fighting antioxidants.
The only place aronia can’t compete with the blueberry is in the taste department. Pop one into your mouth, and you’ll quickly find out why it’s been nicknamed the “chokeberry.”
They’re tart, dry, and bitter. Some people enjoy eating the berries, but for most of us, the best way to get the nutrients locked inside is with an aronia supplement.
Cut blood pressure and cholesterol with aronia berry
Now new research reveals why you might want to give an aronia berry supplement a whirl yourself.
Over six to eight weeks, swallowing a daily aronia supplement could significantly dial down your systolic (top) blood pressure number. Plus, at the same time, it can cut your cholesterol levels.
And if you’re no spring chicken, you’ll likely see the biggest benefits. As the new research finds, it’s the MOST effective in folks over 50 who need the greatest help.
Better still, the study, published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements, finds that aronia is also quite safe.
Compare that to meds for cholesterol and blood pressure….
- The most common cholesterol drugs… statins… can lead to muscle pain, brain fog, memory struggles, and more. And over time, the drugs can increase your risk of diabetes.
- Blood pressure meds bring their own form of misery. They are notorious for making older folks unsteady on their feet, increasing the risk of falls and the injuries that can follow.
Aronia offers a much safer option that can gently help tame both of your numbers. And it brings along some other welcome benefits for the ride.
The supplements can enhance the flow of slow, sluggish, stagnant blood. In fact, one study found that aronia can deliver better circulation in as little as two hours.

You can find aronia sold as a supplement under either its own name or chokeberry. But for the best possible results, look for it in a comprehensive heart or circulation formula with other proven natural remedies.
