CherryActive, the company that takes the famous Montmorency cherry juice and bottles it for its super high antioxidant content (twenty times more than most fruit), are doing something new.
Now, they’re not just using cherries to tackle joint mobility, muscle recovery and sleep problems.
There’s also bottled blueberry and bottled beetroot juice. Blueberries are still being researched for their overall benefits and each 210ml bottle of BlueberryActive contains the concentrated juice of over 1250 blueberries.
Meanwhile beetroot is being increasingly used by athletes to give them that extra edge over their opponents, hence BeetActive.
Whether cherry, blueberry or beetroot, all the juices are 100% pure concentrated goodness helping you to go fitter, faster and further.
The juice promised a healthy boost in problem areas weight loss, blood pressure, heart and kidney disease and Alzheimer’s, and has been the subject of numerous news reports.
It was all thought to be due to the antioxidants in pomegranates.
Now Pomegreat have taken a step further by harvesting the benefits of not only the juice but the whole fruit. This results in even more antioxidants, in particular an antioxidant called punicalagin.
So now Pomegreat have a new ingredient they call PurePlus which is the extract of the whole pomegranate. The benefits? I’ll quote from their site:
Regular consumption of PomeGreat® PurePlus™ has shown positive results relating to cardiovascular health, lowering cholesterol, and antioxidant benefits.
Pomegranates have been the subject of a great deal of promising scientific investigation in recent years, but we have yet to fully understand all the beneficial properties locked in the skin, pith and husk of the fruit. The initial results of our research are extremely promising. The extract is looking like a veritable fountain of youth.
It remains to be seen exactly how PurePlus will help, but it is already available from GoodnessDirect in 3 flavours: Pomegranate with Beetroot, with Blueberry or with Cherry.
Perhaps it’s your chance to become part of the experiment and see how Pomegranate PurePlus works for you? I’d be most intrigued to know.
Biona have come up with a great tasting organic tart cherry juice that is full of goodness for your body.
Did you know that cherries have at least 17 different antioxidants? They contain antioxidants called anthocyanins which make the cherries so red, but are also very powerful fighters against free radicals (molecules responsible for aging and tissue damage).
Biona’s cherry juice is made out of five different types of cherries to ensure that you get the best from your juice and get the best out of you.
Not only is cherry juice full of antioxidants but it has also been known for the relief of pain and inflammation in the following:
And, if you are an insomniac tart cherries are also good for you as they are a natural producer of Melatonin which helps people fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up feeling rested and refreshed in the morning.
We are officially now in the lead up to winter and no doubt coughs and colds will soon be rife.
A good boost to the immune system can be gained from a juice rich in vitamin C and Biona Acerola Juice contains plenty of this!
It is a pure juice containing no added sugar, made simply from the acerola cherry fruit that has a vitamin C content 20 times richer than an orange or lemon. It is also a good natural source of antioxidants, vitamin A, iron and calcium.
As a superjuice containing melatonin it has also been known to serve as a natural sleep aid.
Known to help promote a healthy heart, joints, muscles, and the immune system, this juice offers a multitude of health benefits particularly against inflammation caused by gout and other forms of arthritis.
As a bottled juice the nutritional benefits of cherries are available in a form that is easier and tastier than taking supplements.
My battles with sleepless nights continue. One option is to try CherryActive juice which has high levels of melatonin, the hormone which regulates sleep. As we get older melatonin levels tend to decline until by our 60s most montmorency cherry has been put to much scientific research – results suggest that regular consumption of the cherry antioxidants may help reduce inflamation, cholesterol and fatigue, maintain muscular strength, increase joint health and normalise uric acid levels (reducing the affect of gout). It’s fantasticly high antioxidant content is also likely to look after your brain’s grey-matter and general health for a longer time.
