CHERRY FRUIT EXTRACT - A POWERHOUSE OF HEALTHY NUTRIENTS
The world fell in love with cherries from about 70 BC and until today, many millions of people have reaped the multitude of benefits this small fruit has to offer. About 2 million of tons of cherries are produced annually, Turkey being the largest producer, the US second. We were al children once, fighting about who gets the cherry, and quite honestly, don’t you still eye it with some territoriality?
The medical profession has started realizing the value of cherries and many products are available on the market today. Most noticeably, Cherry Fruit Extract. To understand its popularity, you need to be aware of the various properties of Cherries first.
Cherries are packed with vitamins A, C, D and K Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Panthothenic Acid, Choline and Betaine.
Cherries are rich in many minerals as well such as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Selenium and Fluoride.
Cherries are very low in Saturated Fat but have high concentrations of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, which are of great health benefit to humans.
Cherries have 0% Cholesterol, 0% Caffeine and 0% Theobromine.

Add the fact that Cherries possess 10 x the power of Aspirin; it has superb anti- inflammatory properties and is filled with anti- oxidants.
However, to gain the optimum power of Cherries, you need at least a cup per day, which for most of us is not always possible.

Many of the Cherry Fruit Extract pills though contain artificial flavorants, so ensure that you read the list of ingredients before purchase. An alternative, albeit one with much more effort involved, is to daily make your own Cherry Extract.
