Why Tart Cherries?
Tart Cherries contain a plethora of bio-active compounds that acai, blueberry, noni, and pomegranate simply do not have. Tart cherries have anthocyanins which are shown to reduce inflammation and inhibit tumor growth. They contain flavanols and flavonols which improve blood flow and heart/brain health, and lower blood pressure. They have plant hormones which regulate physiological functions and help protect the body from age related functional decline. Tart cherries boast phenolic acids which are very powerful antioxidants (which balance out the level of oxidants in your body), that help protect the body from oxidative stress and the associated risk of developing cancer and/or cardiovascular disease. They contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals that improve basic metabolic processes and are essential to biological pathways. Lastly, they contain terpenes which are essential oils from plant elements.
