CherryRich Super Strength Cherry Concentrate provides a broad spectrum of antioxidant nutrients for the maintenance of good health.
Dark red sweet cherries (Bing) are bursting with phytonutrients that promote good health and slow ageing. In particular, CherryRich contains concentrated flavonoids known as anthocyanins that are not only responsible for the dark red hue of the cherries, but also exert antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. As the connection between chronic inflammation and disease becomes clear, a high intake of anthocyanins is recognised as an important health goal. Cherry extracts have long been used to help reduce the pain and inflammation associated with gout. Modern research has now validated this popular folk remedy. In addition to the anthocyanins, CherryRich provides other flavonoids, polyphenols, and is a natural source of vitamin C, beta-carotene, potassium, pectin, and significant levels of boron - a key nutrient for bone health.
CherryRich is a super strength, 36:1 sweet cherry concentrate that is full of the antioxidants and phytonutrients found in fresh Bing cherries. Each softgel capsule is equivalent to 18,000mg of cherries, with an ORAC value of 15,000 per 100g. CherryRich is an all-natural, non-GMO concentrate made from the whole cherry, with no added sugar, preservatives, additives, or excipients.
Bing cherries contain multiple nutrients that provide anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing benefits. As anti-inflammatory agents, anthocyanins in cherries naturally inhibit the enzymes cyclooxygenase-1 and -2 that are responsible for inflammation.These enzymes play a key role in the production of inflammatory compounds called prostaglandins.
Cherry extracts are especially important in battling gout - a form of arthritis due to formation of uric acid crystals as a result of elevated blood levels of uric acid. Nutrients found in cherries can help manage symptoms of gout not only by reducing inflammation, but also by lowering the level of uric acid in the blood.
The anthocyanins, carotenoids, and vitamin C in cherries contribute to their high antioxidant activity. They stabilise the chemical structure of harmful free radicals such as nitric oxide to protect the body's cells from oxidative damage, which can lead to a number of disease states.
