The Intake of Aronia Melanocarpa Fruits and Juice has Great Potential for Prevention of Socially Significant Diseases | Biomedgrid llc

Introduction

Socially significant diseases are preceded by changes in metabolism, oxidative stress and changes in the vascular wall of the arteries leading to poor blood supply to the organs, insufficient oxygen to the organs or thrombosis. Prevention of these diseases involves clarifying genetic predispositions and changing lifestyles (diet and physical activity). Nutrition is a major social problem in the presence of a lot of aggression in the food industry and the supply of very low-quality food. The homeland of Aronia bushes is North America. The fruits of this plant have been known for their medicinal properties since ancient times. Today, we rediscover this fruit as a true, useful food, which has, so far, been only incidentally sought in states of disease coming close to the incurable ones. The current research points to the necessity of including this food in our daily diet as a grace to the healthy lifestyle. Epidemiological studies and associated meta-analyses strongly suggest that long-term diets rich in plant polyphenols offer protection against development of cancers, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and neurodegenerative diseases. The aronia fruit can be consumed as fresh fruit, cold pressed juice from fresh fruits or the so-called “fruit” wine, dried (in the form of flour) or frozen [1,2].
