Therapeutic use


The fruits of chokeberry were primarily used by Native Americans for food.1 Traditionally, fruits of both the black chokeberry and the red chokeberry were used by the Potawatomi tribe for treating colds.2

Medicinal actions and uses

Anti-oxidant and astringent. High concentrations of polyphenols and anthocyanins help to stimulate circulation and strengthen the heart as well as protect the urinary tract. High vitamin C content means the fruits are useful in treating colds and respiratory infections.
