Cherries - Mother Nature's Formula for Joint Pain Relief

Are cherries truly fruit for a healthy you? These days people want to take care of themselves and cherries can help. Tart cherries naturally pack a health-promoting punch that provides pain relief for many people. Recent studies have revealed that tart (sour) cherries offer an assortment of health benefits including the ability to offer natural relief from joint pain caused from gout and other joint inflammation symptoms.

According to ongoing research, daily consumption of tart cherries has the potential to reduce the pain associated with joint inflammation. Tart cherries naturally contain anthocyanins and bioflavonoids which may prevent inflammation in the body. To date, no other fruit or vegetable has been found to have the pain relieving properties of tart cherries.

Leading researchers believe that the pain relief may not come from a specific antioxidant in the cherries, but from the synergistic effect of all the natural compounds in cherries. The skin of the cherries holds most of the essential antioxidants vital to their health benefits.

Antioxidants are vitamins, mineral and other compounds found naturally in everyday food, especially fruits and vegetables. Some of the best known antioxidants include vitamin A, C and E. These powerful antioxidants fight free-radicals within the body and potentially slow down the natural oxidation process that occurs in the body.

So with the increasing popularity of tart cherries, what should consumers look for in selecting tart cherry products? For best results, industry experts recommend consumers check the product label to make sure that it contains significant quantities of tart (sour) cherries.

One significant source of tart cherry is Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry dietary supplement. The entire

cherry, except the pit and stem, is used to make Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry - even the skin. "Just two capsules a day give you the benefits of this amazing fruit. Each daily serving provides 850 mg of tart cherry," says Andy LaPointe, of Fruit Advantage. (www.fruitadvantage.com)

Although more research is needed to unlock all of the amazing natural benefits of tart cherries, Linda L. Patterson is a living testimony of the soothing affects of cherries on her joint pain. "I enjoy crocheting and lately my hands have been so painful, I couldn't crochet for more than about 30 minutes," says Patterson. In an attempt to find relief from her pain, a friend recommended Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry, a dietary supplement made from tart cherries. "Within the first week of taking the tart cherry capsules my hands felt so much better," says Ms. Patterson. "I am now able to crochet without the pain in my hands."

Another significant find within tart cherries is the presence of natural Melatonin. "Tart cherries contain high amounts of Melatonin, which can help to regulate the natural body clock to promote better sleep," says LaPointe. "Many take our capsules in the evening and find they sleep much more soundly during the night."

As more people are living more active lifestyles and looking for natural remedies for health issues, it's a rare treasure to find a simple fruit to provide so many different benefits.
