What exactly are Tart cherries?

One of the key factors in the health benefits of tart cherries powder seems to be the phytochemicals (plant pigments) responsible for the deep red color of cherries. They are called anthocyanins 1 and 2, and there is increasing evidence that they may have anti-inflammatory effects and can reduce oxidative stress in human cells-they are effective antioxidants.

Anthocyanins 1 and 2 are antioxidants that block cyclooxygenase 1 and 2 (COX-1 and COX-2) enzymes. Therefore, tart cherries may have similar effects or properties to anti-inflammatory COX-2 inhibitor drugs (such as Celebrex). Although anthocyanins are found in other berries (such as strawberries and raspberries), tart cherries powder has the highest content.

Cherries also contain high levels of beta-carotene (vitamin A), vitamins C and E, and are a source of potassium, magnesium, iron, folic acid, and fiber. Interestingly, they are also a natural food source of melatonin-melatonin is a hormone that helps regulate sleep.

Tart cherry extract

Cherry juice is a natural remedy that I have heard of and tried. I didn't get any benefits from it, but then I didn't drink cherry juice for more than a few days at a time. Maybe need to build it in a system. Personally, most people say that this may help them relieve the symptoms of arthritis, or it does not really change.
