“So much research exists on the health benefits of cherries for not only warding off inflammation and promoting joint health, but for sleep health, blood vessel and cartilage integrity and as a good source of antioxidants,” said Wayne Xu, Vice President of Everyday Vitamin Nutrition LLC. “We are delighted to carry these extract products that will assist our customers with their health maintenance goals.”
Health Benefits of Cherry Fruit Extract
Like most of the berry fruits we eat, the delightful cherry is a “superfruit” that contains wonderful health benefits. The wild cherry or sweet cherry (Prunus avium genus), in particular, is a species of cherry that is cultivated in Europe, Western Turkey, Northwestern Africa and other Eastern Hemisphere countries. Cherries contain Vitamin A and Vitamin C, and are high in nutrients like beta-carotene, perillyl, ellagic acid, and potassium.
The health benefits of this small fruit are plentiful:
1. Anti-inflammatory properties and joint health: The anthocyanin flavanoids found in cherries protect against inflammation caused by arthritis and other chronic conditions of the joints. A 2006 study published in Journal of Nutrition found that consumption of approximately 45 nearly freeze-dried sweet cherries per day lowers serum markers of inflammation in both men and women. Gout, which is a type of arthritis, can also be minimized by consuming cherries. Cherries help reduce uric acid in the blood which causes gout. It was shown A 2003 Journal of Nutrition Study that healthy women (between the ages of 22 and 40) who ate 45 freeze-dried cherries per day experienced lower blood uric acid levels.
2. Antioxidants: Like other berries, cherries are a rich source of 17 different potent antioxidants which help fight free radicals, which is a major cause of certain cancers. It also helps get rid of toxins that lead to unhealthy aging.
3. Blood vessel and cartilage integrity: The flavonoids that are present in cherries contribute to the integrity of capillaries, collagen and cartilage structures.
4. Sleep Health: Cherries produces melatonin, a hormone that controls healthy sleep cycles.
Consumers can also receive these health benefits by taking supplements with cherry fruit extract. An extract is a substance (which can come in the form of a solid, tincture or powder) that contains a concentrated, and usually standard, amount of therapeutic ingredients from a raw material. Many cherry fruit extract supplements have been standardized to 1 gram of Prunus avium, which contains a potent dosage of the flavonoids, antioxidants, and vitamins and nutrients contained in whole cherries.
If a consumer is unable to consumer 45 freeze-dried cherries per day, cherry fruit extract supplements are the next best method for gaining cherry’s natural health benefits. Everyday Vitamin carries a trusted brand called Cherry Fruit Extract by Enzymatic Therapy for joint health. The supplement contains sweet cherry fruit extract standardized to 1 gram, with no artificial coloring, flavoring or preservatives.
