Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern), the northern German state on the Baltic Sea is known for its 2,000 castles, palaces and manors, like the well-known hunting lodge Granitz on the island of Rügen.
Between its coastline, dotted with various islands and lagoons, and Europe's largest contiguous lake district, beautiful avenues of chestnut or oak trees line the country roads which connect the villages with their historic village centres and typical windmills.
This “Land of the Thousand Lakes” with its sparse population has 238 nature reserves, 110 landscape reserves and 14 national parks which cover about one-fifth of the country's surface. This diversity of landscapes, its protection status and the ever-increasing percentage of over 800 organic farming companies make it a paradise for our bees to find abundant nectar of many different flowers to produce our Organic Spring Blossom Honey to create Organic Honey & Aronia.

Aronia berries, also known as Chokeberries (Aronia melanocarpa) contain higher levels of antioxidants, ployphenois, and anthocyanins than cranberries, blueberries, grapes, and most other fruits. Studies have shown that these antioxidants help reduce the risk for cancer, heart disease, inflammation, diabetes, bacterial infections and neurological diseases in humans and slow the aging process.
Aronia berries may be useful in treating conditions related to oxidative stress, which occurs when unstable molecules called free radicals overwhelm the body's defence against their harmful effects. Free radicals can damage the DNA which may then contribute to the development of many diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and other conditions.Anti-oxidation
The concentration of antioxidants in Aronia is the highest in fruits which is four times higher than that of blueberry anthocyanins and 79 times higher than in grapes. Antioxidants can protect human cells from oxidative damage and promote the secretion and excretion of gastric juice.
Tea polyphenols in Aronia inhibit lipoxygenase and lipid peroxidation in skin mitochondria, preventing wrinkles and aging.
Protect the stomach
Aronia is shown to help relieve gastrointestinal problems, including stomach ulcers and diarrhoea. Scientists claims that Aronia can provide considerable benefits for human gastrointestinal diseases.
The study found that Aronia helps to reduce liver damage and helped to detoxify the liver.
Aronia is rich in dietary fibre, vitamins A, E, C, K and B9 as well as minerals such as calcium, potassium, iron and manganese and therefore helps to boost the immune system.
Aronia has an effective performance in fighting intravascular inflammation. Studies also found that Aronia could protect against coronary artery disease.
Aronia can also be used as an anti-carcinogen. A study by the University of Maryland showed that Aronia is very powerful against colon cancer.
Fight against heart disease
Aronia can improve blood circulation, strengthen blood vessel walls, and reduce the risk of heart disease. It can prevent the formation of free radicals that affect human health, thereby preventing the occurrence of heart diseases.
The main pathogen of urinary tract infection is Escherichia coli. Studies have confirmed that Aronia has a high quinic acid content and is five to ten times more effective than cranberries in preventing urinary tract infection. Studies have also confirmed that Aronia can effectively reduce the growth of harmful microorganisms such as E. coli.
Aronia contains a lot of carotenoids to avoid cell damage and cataract formation. It is rich in flavonoid antioxidants such as lutein and zeaxanthin, which protects the eyes from the effects of ultraviolet rays and age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) as well as eye inflammation (uritis).
The large amounts of phenols and flavonoids in Aronia promote wound healing, remove toxic substances from the body, and reduce inflammation.
Prevent high blood pressure
Aronia helps keep blood pressure at a normal level and prevent vasospasm.

Aronia (chokeberries) are a genus of flowering plants within the rose family Rosaceae. The only three species are native to eastern North America and grow there as a shrub of one to two meters in height.
Native Americans have long used Aronia as food staple and in their folk medicine as a treatment for common colds. The berries were usually eaten raw or dried and mixed with pemmican. The dried fruits were also often pressed into cakes and stockpiled for the winter months. The fresh berries could be mashed and made into a jam, or simply left to ferment and used as Aronia wine. Every single part of the plant had a use, with the roots being used to stop wound bleeding, while its bark was used in the treatment of fever and diarrhoea or boiled to produce a form of medicinal tea.
Today, Aronia is commonly used in Eastern Europe and Russia as a superfood due to its huge health benefits with only 47 calories per 100g..
