A new study has found that tart cherries have a unique combination of powerful antioxidants that may help reduce risk factors for heart disease and inflammation.
Importantly, the mice eating the cherry diets had a 65 per cent reduction in early death, likely due to improved cardiovascular health. Thirdly, they found the heart benefits and many others may be due to the unique combination of natural antioxidant compounds in the "Super Fruit". About one cup of freeze-dried tart cherries have an ORAC over 10,000, and contain a diverse combination of antioxidant compounds and phytochemicals likely responsible for their health benefits. Researchers attribute the benefits to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant compounds in the red fruit called anthocyanins, also responsible for cherries` bright red colour. In addition to heart heath benefits, research also suggests cherries could affect inflammation related to muscle recovery post-workout and arthritis. The research was presented at the Experimental Biology annual meeting in Washington, DC. ANI
