ORAC

What is ORAC and why is it important?

  • ORAC is an acronym for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It is a definitive test for assessing the strenght of antioxidant compounds.
  • Ingesting 5,000 ORAC units per day substantially reduces your risk of Coronary Heart Disease, Cancer, and other age-related illnesses.
  • Two tablespoons of Montmorency Cherry Concentrate contains 5,000 ORAC units; this equals more than 6 servings of fruit!

Melatonin

Cherry concentrate contains natural melatonin, a hormone found in all living creatures which:

  • Regulates sleep-wake cycles (circadian rhythms) to improve quality of sleep
  • Stimulates production of critical antioxidant enzymes SOD (superoxide dismutase) and GSH (glutathione)
  • Protects brain and nerve tissue
  • Regulates the immune system
  • Has been tested for prevention and treatment of cancer
  • Reduces damage to the central nervous system
  • Reduces oxidative damage in Huntington’s Disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
  • Is involved in the regulation of body weight, especially when taken with calcium
  • Is an effective preventative for migraines
  • Retains a higher GSH (glutathione) level in athletes during extended exercise for greater performance, less injury and faster recovery
  • Crosses the blood-brain barrier and placenta as well as the cell membrane. This increases its ability to assist with a multitude of health challenges and in maintaining good health.

Inflammation

Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice is an excellent natural anti-inflammatory:

  • New research presented at the American College of Sports Medicine Conference shows that healthy people, aged 18-50, who drink tart cherry juice, twice a day for seven days prior to and on the day of a long-distance run, had significantly less muscle pain after exercise.
  • Tart Cherries contains six major flavonoids, powerful cell-rejuvenating antioxidants which may assist the body in reducing inflammation, slowing the aging process, lowering the risk of heart disease, and lowering uric acid (associated with gout).
  • Anthocyanins, the pigments in tart cherries that make them red, have anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Anthocyanins from tart cherries contain some of the highest levels of COX I and COX II enzyme inhibitors of any known food. Similar to the way aspirin functions, blocking COX enzymes can alleviate chronic pain. Time Magazine states, in the article The Silent Killer (2/23/04), that chronic inflammation is a major cause of many diseases.
  • In addition, tart cherries contain ellagic acid and perillyl alcohol, natural compounds, which may reduce the incidence of all types of cancer.

Glutathione

Glutathione (GSH) is a small but vital protein found in every cell of the body.

Glutathione performs 6 important functions:

  • It is a major antioxidant produced by the cell, which neutralizes free radicals, and recycles other antioxidants
  • It is the body’s most effective de-toxifer
  • It optimizes immune response
  • It assists in the regulations of the cell’s vital functions, such as the synthesis and repair of DNA
  • It enhances energy, muscular strength and endurance
  • It effectively helps to slow the aging process
