Aronia and Joint Health

Updated: Apr 14

Creaky, achy joints may have us wincing in pain as we recover from an accident or from simply growing older. Many times, we reach for over-the-counter pain relief.

Consider the power of the aronia berry. Having the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) score that tops the charts (literally!), aronia may block the action of COX-2, which is an extremely potent pro-inflammatory agent. Also, aronia protects the body against oxidative stress because it is one of the richest sources of anthocyanins. Research suggests that an increased intake of anthocyanins limits the exercise-induced oxidative damage to red blood cells, most probably by enhancing the endogenous antioxidant defense system.*

We want to take care of our bodies and teach our children how to do the same. Exercising is important, but the saying, “You are what you eat,” rings particularly true. If you are experiencing joint pain, begin by packing your body with the highest antioxidant fruit available.*
