Why does Enzymatic Therapy use sweet cherries in Cherry Fruit Extract rather than sour (or tart)?
Research on cherry has used both tart and sweet species of cherry. Both have shown benefits for health. In a study that looked specifically at healthy urate levels the researchers used sweet Bing cherry, which is a cultivar of Prunus avium. In a separate study that looked at the ability of cherry and berries to balance the body's natural anti-inflammatory response, sweet cherry showed significant activity.
What is the equivalent of fresh cherries to Cherry Fruit Extract?
This product uses a concentrated 10 to 1 cherry fruit extract, which means that it requires 10 lbs of fresh cherries to make 1 lb of cherry fruit extract.
Does Cherry Fruit Extract have any effect on pH balance?
Cherries are a source of flavonoids, natural compounds that have many positive effects on our health. The flavonoids in Cherry Fruit Extract promote pH balance by maintaining healthy uric acid levels. Uric acid results from the breakdown of purines, compounds found in all human tissues and in many foods. According to the American Medical Association, foods with high purine content include beer and other alcoholic beverages, anchovies, sardines in oil, fish roes, herring; and organ meats, such as liver, kidneys, and sweetbreads. Cherry Fruit Extract also has antioxidant properties to protect cells from free radical damage and compounds that support healthy capillaries, collagen structures, eyes, joints, and arteries.
