100% black sweet cherry concentrate
Bernard Jensons formula
Black Cherry Concentrate is a rich source of antioxidants and phytonutrients that help to protect cells from damage and support immune health.
It may help to lower uric acid levels, which can be beneficial for sufferers of gout, a painful condition caused by uric acid build up in the joints.
While published literature suggests that tart cherries have a higher overall concentration of phenolic compounds - plant-based chemicals with associated health benefits - sweet cherries contain more anthocyanins.
Anthocyanins are naturally occurring compounds that contribute to a plant’s pigmentation. Anthocyanins impart blue, red, and purple coloring to plants.
Anthocyanins have amazing antioxidant properties, which preserve the health and structural integrity of cells and inhibit oxidative stress. Anthocyanins are also considered to possess anti-inflammatory properties.
