Cherries - The Supercharged Fruit
by Tony Anderson  
According to research from Michigan State University tart cherries contain
anthocyanins and bioflavonoids, which inhibit the enzymes Cyclooxygenase-1 and -2,
and prevent inflammation in the body. These compounds have similar activity as
aspirin, naproxen and ibuprofen. Further investigations revealed that daily
consumption of tart cherries has the potential to reduce the pain associated with joint
inflammation. Many consumers are choosing to drink cherry juice, eat cherries or
consume tart cherry pills to starve off the pain of gout, arthritis and joint
inflammation.

Linda L. Patterson is a living testimony of the soothing affects of cherries on her joint
pain. “I enjoy crocheting and lately my hands have been so painful, I couldn’t crochet
for more than about 30 minutes.”, says Patterson. In an attempt to find relief from
her pain, she located Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry capsules, a supplement made from
red tart cherries. “Within the first week of taking the tart cherry capsules my hands
felt so much better.”, says Ms. Patterson. “I am now able to crochet without the pain
in my hands.”

In addition to the health benefits offered by cherries, many people are just eating the
fruit for the taste. John Simms, a life-long resident of Indianapolis, Indiana, eats
cherries for the convenience and taste. “As a short-haul truck driver, my diet isn’t the
best, I would eat fast food every day. A year ago, my wife bought some dried
cherries and I began eating them to keep my weight down. Now I eat a handful of
cherries instead of eating fast food.”

Not only are cherries a great way to maintain a healthy body they are a natural
product. According to Andrew LaPointe, Director of Marketing for Traverse Bay
Farms,
“many of our customers are looking to eat
healthier and fruit products fit this trend. It’s certainly better than fast food.” Traverse
Bay Farms sells Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry capsules and cherry juice concentrate.
