Montmorency tart cherries are perhaps nature’s most nutritionally dense food containing a wide variety of powerful antioxidants and phyto-chemicals unmatched by any other fruit as measured by the scientifically validated ORAC method. In fact each serving (2 tbsp.) contains 7,000 ORAC units! ORAC is an acronym for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (the ability to scavenge free radicals). According to researchers at the Human Aging Institute, ingesting 5000 ORAC units per day substantially reduces your risk of coronary heart disease, cancer, and other age related illnesses. Additionally, tart Montmorency cherry juice concentrate contains melatonin, which may help balance circadian rhythms for proper sleep. Proper (deep) sleep is the single most important factor in stress related weight loss and the natural melatonin found in our Apothe-Cherry concentrate is the Earth's most effective source. Tart cherries also contain anti-inflammatory anothocyanins (pigments) and bioflavonoids that may assist the body to relieve pain associated with arthritis and gout. Our 100% pure and guaranteed non-gmo concentrate also naturally contains perillyl alcohol, a natural compound that is powerful in reducing the incidence of all types of cancer, as well as ellagic acid. Clinical tests conducted at the Hollings Cancer Institute at MUSC shows consuming ellagic acid may aid the body in cancer prevention. Isoqueritrin and queritrin (flavenoids) are part of the Montmorency tart cherry’s phyto-chemical profile that assist the body in eliminating by-products of oxidative stress, thereby slowing the aging process. Reversing the aging process requires that we minimize degenerative influences and maximize regenerative influences. These cherries are truly nature’s most powerful combination of cell rejuvenating antioxidants! Noni, goji berry, and mangosteen simply cannot compare!
