How can Cherry Juice help you?
Cherry Juice is not only refreshingly delicious, but it provides many nutritious health benefits and makes an ideal substitute for sugary soft drinks and sports drinks. Dark red, purple, and blue fruits and vegetables contain anthocyanins which provide their natural colour. Cherries are rich in anthocyanins (which are antioxidants – substances that may be able to stop or slow down some types of damage to cells) and rich in natural vitamins including Vitamins A, C, & K, potassium and fibre.
Many people claim that drinking Cherry Juice can assist in maintaining healthy joints, arthritis, gout, improve muscle recovery after a workout, strengthen their immune system, assist you sleep as well as other benefits – due to the high levels of anthocyanins in the fruit.
Fights inflammation and arthritis pain - increasing amounts of research are showing that the antioxidants in cherry juice can reduce pain and inflammation.
Fewer gout symptoms – a type of arthritis that usually affects one joint at a time causing pain, swelling and redness.
Helps post-workout recovery - Cherry Juice may help recovery after exercise as it’s naturally high in the mineral potassium which helps maintain blood pressure, hydration, muscle recovery, nerve impulses, digestion and more.
Immune boost - Anthocyanins from natural sources including cherries may have antimicrobial properties which have been known to kill small organisms called microbes, such as bacteria that cause disease and infection.
Helps you sleep - Cherry Juice may help with quality of sleep and length of sleep time, in particular for people suffering from insomnia, as it can raise the amount of melatonin in the body which may help maintain normal sleep.
What type of Cherry Juice should I buy?
There are many different varieties of Cherry Juice. Look for juices that use 100% cherry juice with no added sweeteners, water (to dilute it down) or preservatives. Juice “from concentrate” is squeezed then filtered so the water is extracted, then rehydrated and packaged. “Not from concentrate” is where the fresh juice is directly filled into the bottle.
There are also different types of cherries used to produce juice. Tart cherry juice is sour to taste and provides a higher amount of anthocyanins compared to black cherry juice, which is sweeter in taste and has less anthocyanins. Both are great, nutritious options. Even without its antioxidants and nutrients, cherry juice is deliciously tart and refreshing.
