Aronia May Help Improve Cholesterol Levels


Aronia is a berry that contains very high levels of antioxidants,
polyphenols, and anthocyanins. A new study suggests that Aronia may help
improve cholesterol levels.





The researchers used seven studies for their analysis. The doses
of Aronia used in the studies ranged from 3.4 ounces for juices to 225 mg for
supplements. The studies lasted from 4 to 24 weeks. They all looked at the
effect of Aronia on lipid profiles, blood pressure, and biomarkers of
inflammation.





When the researchers analyzed the data, they found that Aronia
consumption resulted in an average increase in HDL cholesterol of 1.48 mg/dl.
It also resulted in an average decrease of 2.55 mmHG in diastolic blood
pressure. For studies that lasted less than 10 weeks, total cholesterol
decreased by 7.2 and LDL cholesterol by 5.8. No significant changes were seen
in systolic blood pressure or biomarkers of inflammation such as C-reactive
protein and interleukin-1.





The study was conducted by researchers from the Shahid Beheshti
University of Medical Sciences, Coventry University, Chongqing Medical
University, and Christian Medical College and Hospital. It was published online
ahead of print on June 24, 2019 in the journal Phytotherapy
Research
