What is Tart Cherry?
The Tart Cherry, or as it's sometimes named, sour, dwarf, or Montmorency cherries, have become widely popular over the last few years. Tart Cherry is native to southwest Asia and most of Europe. It is related to the sweet cherry but bears much more sour fruit. An easy way to identify Tart Cherries from sweet cherries is by their color. Sweet cherries are typically a darker red color, whereas Tart Cherries maintain a vibrant red color after being harvested.
Dried Tart Cherries are used in everything from baked goods to soups and meat dishes but they also carry some lesser-known, yet intriguing Tart Cherry benefits! Compared to sweet cherries, Tart Cherries are known to carry larger amounts of Anthocyanins and are better at promoting balanced oxidation levels. In fact, several studies have found that Tart Cherries strongly supported balanced inflammation levels and even promoted muscle growth and recovery.
Research across many fields determined that there was a particular compound in Tart Cherries known as Anthocyanins that seem to be responsible for its myriad of Tart Cherry benefits. However, it’s important to realize that a lot of Tart Cherry supplements do not standardize to bioactive compounds like the Anthocyanins. It is important to standardize to these Anthocyanins, as they are responsible for the bulk of Tart Cherry extract benefits. Fortunately, modern technology and cutting edge research have allowed us to create a highly potent Tart Cherry extract, standardized to an outstanding 10% Anthocyanins! Let's get into the benefits this may have for you!
Tart Cherry Benefits and Uses
- May help support balanced oxidation and inflammation levels
- May help promote physical strength and energy
- May help support cardiovascular function
- May help promote cognitive function
- May help support immune system function
- May help support balanced uric acid levels
Anthocyanins are one of the primary groups of pigments that are responsible for the red, orange, and blue colors in flowers, fruits, and vegetables. However, recent interest in Anthocyanins has surged due to the possible Anthocyanin health benefits. Anthocyanins are known to provide great support of balanced oxidation levels but studies have also shown that Tart Cherries with a high Anthocyanin content promoted balanced inflammation levels and even cardiovascular function!
Further investigation into the inflammation benefits of a high Anthocyanin Tart Cherry supplement led to some other interesting discoveries. Animal studies found that Anthocyanins appeared to promote cognitive function. This correlation is believed to be due to the impact Anthocyanins have on inflammation and oxidation levels. Additional human research aimed to examine the potential metabolic and cardiovascular benefits of Anthocyanins. Results from several trials found that a Tart Cherry supplement with high levels of Anthocyanins supported metabolic and cardiovascular function and these results were replicated in both in vivo and in vitro research. Some other interesting research in the realm of Tart Cherry benefits found that Tart Cherry helps support balanced uric acid levels. Results from this research support long-standing claims that Tart Cherry’s impact on uric acid levels promotes joint comfort and function.
