Benefits of Tart Cherries
Tart cherries are a great source of powerful antioxidants, including kaempferol, quercetin, anthocyanins and melatonin. Melatonin is a very potent antioxidant (considered more potent that vitamins C, E, and A), for the fact that it is soluble in both fat and water. Research show other fruits and vegetables do not have the unique anthocyanin and antioxidant makeup to help maintain healthy joints similar to those of tart cherries.
Research suggests that the health benefits of tart cherries comes not from any one antioxidant, but from the synergistic effect of all the natural compounds in tart cherries. Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry is a great way to get all the benefits of this incredible red fruit. Starting with IQF (individually quick frozen) whole tart cherries, Joint Formula packs 1200mg of tart cherry in each daily serving.

Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry helps maintain healthy cardiovascular function: Cherries are full of potent, health-promoting properties. Research indicates tart cherries contain at least 17 natural compounds including beta carotene, vitamin A, Melatonin and phenol compounds known as flavonoids. Studies suggest flavonoids help promote cardiovascular health. Some of the specific flavonoids in cherries include anthocyanins, proanthocyanins and anthocyanidins. Anthocyanins are naturally occurring compounds that give fruits, vegetables and plants their vibrant color. Tart cherries are a good source of these vital flavonoids.
Tart Cherries are a low glycemic index (GI) food: The GI is a system that ranks foods by how they affect blood sugar levels in the body. Low GI foods produce a gradual rise in the blood sugar that's easy on the body. Tart Cherries rank less than 55 on the GI scale.
Maintaining healthy sleeping habits: The University of Texas Health Science Center recently began to quantify the availability and activity of the melatonin in cherry products. Melatonin is a potent antioxidant for which there is extensive evidence showing it to be significant in improving the body's circadian rhythms and natural sleep patterns. Research shows tart cherries have significant amounts of naturally occurring Melatonin.
Brunswick Labs located in Wareham, MA discovered that tart cherries also contain a class of compounds called SOD (super oxide dismutase), which act as super scavengers of dangerous free radicals throughout the body. Very few foods contain SOD and the human body is often lacking in SOD.
Recent research from the University of Vermont suggests that the compounds in cherries may play a role in helping to soothe sore muscles.
