Broad-Spectrum Health Properties of Tart Cherries
By Michael Downey
Scientists at the annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine concluded that tart cherries provide impressive anti-inflammatory activity in comparison to most other foods.1
The main ingredient responsible for their potency are antho-cyanins, a special class of flavonoids that provides tart cherries with their
characteristic pigmentation and diverse health benefits.2
Every anthocyanin-rich food has its distinct set of antho-cyanins, flavanols, and other polyphenols.3 And for that
reason, each of these foods helps protect against a unique set of—but not all—diseases.
Compared to bilberries, blueberries, and cranberries, tart cherries contain a very broad range of anthocyanins.4,5 As a result, they target a
much wider spectrum of inflammation-induced diseases, including diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and more.6-9 In addition, tart cherry compounds have been shown to increase the activity of the body’s key antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase (SOD).10
