Get Your Anthocyanins With Tart Cherries : Antioxidant & Anti- inflammatory Properties


One very effective antioxidant that you might not be familiar with is the Tart Cherry. The Tart Cherry is darker in colour and is packed full of anthocyanins which have been linked to reducing the risk of cancer, heart health, as an anti-inflammatory and to aid muscle recovery.

In order to get the requisite amount of this key antioxidant and anti-inflammatory you’d have to consume bag full’s of cherries, consequently many people opt for a cherry juice…because let’s be honest, multiple trips to the toilet thanks to a sack full of cherries isn’t good for anybody!
