Take your free-radical protection to a whole new level with the incredible antioxidant power of Swanson Premium Coffee Cherry! When it comes to dietary antioxidants, berries have always been the most heralded sources, whether it's blueberries, cranberries or so-called "super-fruit" like acai berries. But there's one berry that blows them all away when it comes to neutralizing free-radicals: the coffee berry—or "coffee cherry". Compared with blueberries, cranberries and acai berries in terms of total oxygen radical absorbent capacity (ORAC), this tropical superstar outshines them all, with six times the power of acai.
The story of the coffee cherry is certainly a peculiar one. Coffee is among the world's most popular beverages, consumed by hundreds of millions around the globe every day. So the coffee bean is world-renowned; however, the coffee berry, from which we get the bean, is largely unknown outside of coffee-growing regions. The reason for this is that the ripe coffee berry, like many other ripe berries, has a very short shelf-life, as the polysaccharides of the fruit break down quickly in the tropical climate in which it's grown. Thus the fruit was typically discarded after the bean had been extracted, and its nutritive benefits were denied to all but a few fortunate local individuals. But now recent technological advances have made it possible to preserve ripe coffee berries while retaining their valuable antioxidant phytonutrients, making them available to the general public for the first time. Our Full Spectrum Coffee Cherry packs 200 mg of dried coffee berry fruit into convenient veggie capsules so you can enjoy the healthful benefits of this tropical treasure every day.
Natural colour variations can occur from batch to batch. Botanical ingredients have a distinct and earthy odor noticeable after opening the bottle.
