Organic Aronia juices are the jewel in the crown of Sedno’s products. We truly believe in their extraordinary properties. If there is only one thing you should buy from our shop, it should be those juices. Seriously! Go and buy them now, you will thank us later.
However, it is not that easy to explain all their benefits without boring you. Of course, you have heard about antioxidants and free radicals. We’ve heard about them too. But have we really understood what’s the hype about? Nope. There was something about the free radical, electrons and oxidative stress… Are you asleep already?
It was one of our regular customers who gave us the idea how to explain it in simple words. As she prefers to stay anonymous, we will call her Jenn. Jenn dropped by one day to collect her order. She came with her 9-year-old son David. We had a little chat; she was amazed how much the quality of her sleep improved just after few weeks of drinking our organic Aronia berry juice. It was an obvious sign of her oxidative stress reduction. Her curious little one started asking about the juices and antioxidants. His mother gave him one of the best explanations we have ever heard. To our joy she kindly agreed that we share it here with you.
Villains and superheroes
Your body, she said, is full of little villains which are called free radicals. The villains like to gather in large groups. There is more of them during haze, when you eat lots of candy and fatty foods, when you spend too much time sunbathing or when you get an infection. Also drinking alcohol and smoking makes them thrive. When you have lots of them in your body, they damage it and make you sick. They can cause diabetes, heart disease or cancer.
Luckily our body has a defence system. The little soldiers in your body that help you fight off these villains are called antioxidants. They are little molecules that neutralize the bad free radicals. For many years your own defence system was enough. Unfortunately, the environment is more and more polluted, the food we eat is more and more processed, in effect the villains grow in numbers and your body needs all the help it can get. Your body needs superheroes! Those superheroes are foods rich in antioxidants. And the first among those superheroes are Aronia berries.
Superberry and more
We won’t lie, we love that our happy clients compare our products to superheroes! But Jenn was absolutely right. Aronia berries are rich in antioxidants, such as phenolic acids, anthocyanins, flavanols, and proanthocyanins. This powerful mix means that Aronia berries have one of the highest antioxidants capacities of all fruits. It really is a SUPERBERRY!
There is more! Aronia berries are not only one of the best sources of antioxidants. They are also rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin K, C and P, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and many more.
