The unique power of superfruits

"Superfruits" are a unique group of nutrient-rich fruits that contain natural compounds shown to have potential disease-fighting properties. Tart cherries, as one of few fruits falling in this category, are rich in antioxidants and contain potent phytonutrients including anthocyanins (plant pigments that have been linked to a variety of health benefits) and melatonin. Emerging research suggests tart cherries may reduce inflammation and ease the pain of arthritis and gout, offer protection against heart disease and certain cancers, reduce the risk of diabetes and insulin resistance syndrome and aid in the treatment and possible prevention of memory loss.*

That’s because tart cherries are bursting with antioxidants. The latest tests show that Montmorency tart cherries have high ORAC values. ORAC stands for oxygen radical absorption capacity and is a measure of how many antioxidants are in a food product and how powerful they are.
