“I learned about Tart Cherry a decade or more ago. Tart Cherry is an awesome basic anti-inflammatory and it reduces oxidative stress. Today, most of our chronic diseases in the Western world - Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Connective Tissue Disorders, Autoimmune Disorders, Pain, and Osteoarthritis - a lot of these are really caused by the lifetime accumulation of low-grade chronic inflammation and oxidative stress.”
- Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Meredith Warner, Founder of The Healing Sole & Well Theory

I started waking up with swollen fingers on both hands. I could hardly bend my fingers. I don’t know what suddenly caused this. I read about the Tart Cherry Extract and decided to give it a try. I am no longer experiencing swelling in my fingers. I take one capsule in the morning after breakfast and one in the evening before bedtime. I’m a believer!

I have extensive arthritis throughout my body- but especially bone on bone knee pain. I have been through the gamut of treatments the Dr’s can give me, with them calling for knee replacement. But since Taking the Tart Cherry the pain, knee giving out, and swelling have disappeared. I actually went off it for a few months just to see what would happen- and of course eventually all the disabling facets re-presented themselves, and once again disappeared once I began taking the Tart Cherry again. I will never be without it again! It makes all the difference in my mobility and quality of life. My disabling hand arthritis issues have disappeared as well.

I use both of these supplements for osteoarthritis in my hip which has become increasingly more painful and limiting my mobility. The pain was throughout my hip, groin, leg and foot making it difficult to walk very far or sleep. After 2 months of these products, the pain in my leg is gone and my mobility is better. I will stop my prescription anti-inflammatories and continue with these supplements.

So far it has been good. Bought it mainly for help with inflammation; I have not had to take as many aspirin or painkillers since I started on it. The greater thing about it though is I’m sleeping so much better! Have stopped my melatonin completely and am getting a good night full of restful sleep!

Q: Is Tart Cherry Like An NSAID?

A:Tart cherry extract acts on the COX2 enzymes, but it is not an NSAID. It acts like an NSAID, but does not have the same side effects as NSAID pain relievers. These natural medications work in a more gentle manner and without the large and aggressive single molecule effects of an NSAID.

An NSAID is a synthetic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory.

COX2, which tart cherry acts upon, is just an enzyme along the inflammatory pathway.

Q: How Much Can I Take Each Day?

A: There is no known upper limit for Tart Cherry. Dr. Warner recommends taking 1-2 capsules a day (1500-3000mg). It’s best to pay attention to how your body responds. As always, check with your physician if you have specific questions about your body.

Q: Can’t I Just Drink The Juice Or Eat The Cherries? Is there Really A Difference?

A: To consume about 80mg of anthocyanins (the plant compounds in tart cherries that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects) you would have to consume about 100-120 cherries. This is typically supplied by 16 to 24 ounces of a tart cherry juice blend, one ounce of liquid tart cherry juice concentrate, or 400 mg of tart cherry juice concentrate in tablets or capsules. To get the same amount of anthocyanin intake from a concentrated product, like our capsules, you only have to consume about 400mg of tart cherry extract. Drinking fruit juice exposes you to very high levels of concentrated fructose and this should be avoided.

Our Tart Cherry extract capsules contain 1500 mg of extract!

Q: How Does Tart Cherry Help With Gout?

A: Cherries and cherry juice relieve gout, which is caused by uric acid crystals in the joints; the same uric acid that may can cause kidney stones. Tart cherry juice is high in potassium, antioxidants and anthocyanins, chemicals that prevent uric acid from forming into crystals. The anthocyanins allow the mitochondria to function more efficiently and remove fructose from the bloodstream prior to its conversion to uric acid. The flavonoid also reduces the activity of xanthine oxidase, an enzyme in the pathway to create uric acid.

Q: Does Tart Cherry Really Help With Sleep?

A: Tart Cherries are a natural source of melatonin, a popular natural sleep aid. Our Tart Cherry Extract Supplement contains about 0.1mg of melatonin per serving.
