A Bomb of Cherry Flavor

CherryPharmI love experimenting with fruit sorbets – so when I stumbled across some research regarding the expansive health benefits of tart cherries – it wasn’t long before I discovered and requested a product called CherryPharm Cherry Juice – an all-natural 100% Juice (with tart cherries, never made from concentrate).

In about a week, I received 8, 8 oz. bottles and was excited to try it out.  The flavor was immediately rich and overpowering – like drinking a cherry pie – at first, sour.

Cherries contain anthyocyanins, the reddish pigments in berries that are high in antioxidants, which are best consumed in an unadulterated form (not from concentrate or in supplements).  Recent studies suggest that consistent exposure to anthocyanins may reduce levels of cancer, aging, neurological diseases, inflammation, diabetes and bacterial infections.

CherryPharm’s Web site also boasts the benefits of “precovery” providing a full list of potential benefits of a daily serving of tart cherry juice, such as lessening pain and speeding recovery after exercise and improving sleep quality.  Read why Tart Cherries.

The downside?  CherryPharm isn’t cheap – 8, 8 oz. bottles sell for $19.99 while 24, 8 oz. bottles go for $49.99.  But while, financially, CherryPharm may seem too rich for your blood, nutritiously, it ultimately isn’t.

CherryPharm’s rich flavor is intense, and if you cannot enjoy it straight from the bottle, here are some great recipes to benefit from its library of nutrients – with a twist:
