FARGO, N.D., Jan. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Native to the Midwest region of North America, but still largely unknown in the United States, the aronia berry is the nutrient-packed superfood for which the consumer health industry has been waiting. Cornering this new market in the US is the aronia berry infused water, ax-water.
"I started growing aronia berries as a hobby and as a way to spend more time with my grandparents on their farm. It was only later that I learned how incredible this little berry was," says Blake Johnson, agriculture and biosystems engineer and Co-Founder of ax-water. "Ax-water was developed to bring to consumers the aronia berry, in a way that is delicious and easy to consume. Our drinks are all natural, relying on the inherent benefits of the aronia berry to provide maximum antioxidant and anti-inflammatory value."
Boasting a higher antioxidant count than 276 other edible items, according to a 2007 USDA study, the low calorie, high fiber aronia berry beat out nearly all other berries, including blueberries, cranberries, acai berries, and pomegranates with their unparalleled free-radical fighting power.
In addition to the high antioxidant count, aronia berries are one of nature's most potent anti-inflammatories. "The US has seen a rise in diseases often linked to chronic inflammation, such as Alzheimer's, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis and Crohn's," says Dr. Jim Johnson, Chief Medical Officer of ax-water & a sports medicine physician. "Incorporating natural anti-inflammatories into a diet, in addition to medical treatment, will be pivotal in turning this trend around."
Made from all natural ingredients, with no erythritol, preservatives, or artificial coloring or flavoring, each bottle of ax-water has only 30 calories and packs all the benefits of the aronia berry into 16 oz. Offered in three flavors, Lemon, Black Tea, and Blackberry + Pear, ax-water provides a bright, refreshing hydration alternative that is accessible to anyone looking for a thirst quenching health boost.
ax-water is currently available for purchase via Amazon and is expanding to retail outlets across the country.
Founded in Fargo, North Dakota in 2017, ax-water is an all natural, American made, health and wellness beverage and the brainchild of Blake Johnson, an agricultural and biosystems engineer and Wade Gronwold, entrepreneur and athletic trainer. Made from all natural ingredients, and containing only 30 calories, ax-water packs all the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of the aronia berry into 16 oz. Currently offered in three flavors, Lemon, Black Tea, and Blackberry + Pear, ax-water harnesses the power of one little berry into one big drink.
