Cherry Aid

With ‘superfoods’ being a hot topic at this cold time of year, Liz Chandler from Natures Corner looks at the reason why the Montmorency cherry, really is a super food that can aid us to a healthier life.

The Montmorency cherry is a variety of sour cherry, named after a valley in France from where it originated. This particular cherry contains the powerful antioxidant anthocyanins, which protects many of our bodies system.

• Pain & Inflammation
Recent research suggests that the anthocyanin compounds help support joint comfort and flexibility.
• Gout
The presence of the anthocyanins is believed to block pain and reduce levels of uric acid. This is key to easing symptoms of gout and flare ups.
• Sleep/Jet Lag
Scientists have discovered high levels of the antioxidant melatonin in Montmorency cherries. Melatonin is a hormone that controls our normal sleep patterns and reduces the time in which it takes to fall asleep. Melatonin also diminishes daytime fatigue following long haul flights.
• Muscle Recovery
Montmorency cherries help to speed up post exercise recovery from sore muscles and many national athletes and sportspeople are now taking the cherries as part of their training regime.

Your ‘cherry aid’ can be taken as a concentrated liquid which can be diluted with water, or as vegetarian capsules.
