Sour Cherry Concentrate
The unique benefits of sour cherries (not to be confused with sweet cherries) first came to light in the 1990s, when numerous studies were published concerning the antioxidant content of this fruit. Further research has identified the active antioxidants as eight polypholic compounds, including anthocyanidins and quercetin. Anthocyanins give cherries their deep rich red colour, and are believed to be the most active type of flavonoid.
As well as potent antioxidants, anthocyanidins have been purported from studies to also possess anti-inflammatory properties. Furthermore it has been shown from studies on sour cherries that particular compounds found in these fruits may inhibit the inflammatory pathways associated with uric acid production. Our diets used to be rich in these fascinating compounds because fruits, berries and seeds were an important part of our ‘stone-age’ diets. Anthocyanadins are also found in cranberries, bilberries, and gogi berries, all of which are hailed as ‘superfoods’
Lamberts® Cherry Concentrate consists of highly concentrated juice of sour cherries and tastes great as it is naturally sweetened with red grape and apple concentrates both of which are also packed with healthy polyphenolic compounds.
