Why Do We Make It?
From sleep aid to healthy joint
function, tart cherries contain phytonutrients and
antioxidants that offer health-promoting benefits to
issues many people face daily:
Melatonin: Your body
produces this hormone, which signals the circadian
rhythm to prepare for sleep. Tart cherries can help
balance circadian rhythm due to this safe melatonin
boost of tart cherries.
Ellagic Acid: Research suggests
that this antioxidant has the potential to inhibit
the production of lipopolysaccharide in your body,
which plays a role in acute inflammatory reactions.
Anthocyanin: This is a flavonoid
found in berries that has been shown to improve
lowdensity lipoprotein oxidation, thus supporting
Consumption of tart
cherry juice has also been connected to:
Healthy uric acid metabolism
Joint health and recovery
Healthy response to inflammation
Deeply pigmented fruits have
many antioxidants and cherry is one of the highest
sources of this antioxidant power. While cherries are
seasonal, its nutrients are needed all year-round.
Apothe-Cherry gives you easy access to tart cherry, even
when it is not in season.
Contains melatonin, which may help balance circadian
rhythms for proper sleep
May support healthy joint function
Promotes healthy uric acid metabolism
Is a rich source of anti-oxidants
Can help prevent or even reverse premature aging
Researchers at the Human Aging Institute found that
when 5,000 ORAC units a day are consumed through
food, the risk of disease and premature aging are
substantially reduced. We've captured the
health-promoting benefits of tart cherries in the
most nutritionally potent fruit juice available-
each delicious serving contains over 7000 ORAC
Tart cherries were once only used to make pies and,
due to their tart taste, the bakers replaced some of
the juice with sugar. Not until university empirical
studies showing the benefits of consuming tart
cherries began to surface did we realize that tart
cherry eaters had far less gout and arthritis than
those who didn`t eat any at all.
Has more ellagic acid than pomegranates
More anthocyanins than blueberries
Higher ORAC rating than acai
Better for gout than black cherry
Far more scientific validation than goji, mangosteen,
My grandmother always used black cherries to
help control my grandfathers gout, I remember
her counting out 100 cherries just as her
grandmother had done for her father, today
science shows us that sour / tart cherries
contain 3 - 5 X more of the phytochemicals that
grandma was seeking. Each ounce of our Apothe-Cherry
is equal to the juice from 33 sour cherries and
more than 100 black cherries; my grandma would
be proud. - Dave Sandoval
provide a great source of melatonin, which
helps your body rest easy. While our body
naturally produces this chemical, these dark
red cherries contain large amounts that are
readily absorbable. What does that mean?
Well, a swig of its concentrate can help you
sleep through the night without waking up.
And let’s be honest - that's exactly what
we’re craving after cleaning the house after
all the hours lost preparing for parties.
Considering how sleep and mood are
connected, we need as much pillow-time as
possible to be on our best behavior.
sour fruits are also loaded with
help boost your immune system.
That’s something we’re definitely going to
need with all the kiddos running around
while we sneak an extra serving of
scrumptious holiday foods. Some studies even
say that the antioxidant-count is among the
highest compared to other foods, even being
superior to vitamin-E supplements (that’s
super important for skin care).
Uric Acid &
|A UK study from
Northumbria University found a correlation
between extract-consumption, and decreased
uric acid and C-reactive protein. Why is
this important? The researchers explained
that finding demonstrates the cherry’s
strong healing power, especially in terms of
gout (a form of arthritis associated with
swelling and pain) and inflammation.
A second study,
published in the same journal, found similar
results. Instead of taking extract, the
participants ate 45 to 90 whole frozen
cherries (which equals around 8 oz of the
juice). Still, researchers found increased
antioxidants and decreased uric acid for 12
hours after consumption.
In a Medical Daily review
of the studies, the study’s author Dr. E. Mitchell
Seymour, extended his hope that continual
consumption of the cherry could lead to
