My father is not the first person I usually go to for beauty advice! But having suffered from gout for about two years he eventually discovered these cherry capsules which he said helped massively to alleviate the gout.
I remembered what he had told me about the cherry capsules but didn’t really give them much thought again until researching glutathione. Glutathione is the mother of all antioxidants. It is naturally produced in our bodies but our levels of it decrease with age and also poor diet/lifestyle.
It’s the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease — yet you might have never heard of it. It is essential to preventing aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia and more, and necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer’s disease. There are more than 89,000 medical articles about it.
During my research I read that montgomery cherry supplement is one of the most effective ways of raising glutathione levels in the body. Glutathione tablets and even drips (which I have tried) have been found be less effective in raising glutathione levels in the body as we don’t absorb it well in those forms. After discovering this link between the two I decided this cherry supplement was definitely worth trying and learning more about. After taking the supplement for two months my skin looks so much brighter and clearer. I now take either two capsules of Montmorency Cherry active capsules or a glass of Montmorency cherry juice every morning. So here is an overview of its benefits:
Anti-ageing Benefits:According to research conducted by the scientists of Michigan State University, drinking a glass of tart cherry juice per day can slow down the ageing process. This fruit contains 17 different antioxidant compounds that help the body to fight free radicals which cause ageing. The most important among these are the anthocyanins that strengthen connective tissues and prevent wrinkles by destroying the harmful enzymes which make the skin old and wrinkled.
Protection from Skin Cancer:The anthocyanin contains disease fighting chemicals that provide protection against skin cancer by fighting and destroying harmful free radicals.
Treatment of Acne and Other Skin Conditions:Cherry juice is considered as an alternative treatment for skin problems like acne, rosacea and acne vulgaris. The antibacterial properties in cherries fight against acne by removing toxins from the blood and fighting bacteria trapped under the skin. Vitamin A helps in repairing damaged cells to maintain healthy skin.
Skin Lightening:Cherry concentrate is a natural ingredient in several beauty products due to its skin lightening qualities. Thus, drinking cherry juice lowers skin damage and helps to promote healthier, lighter skin due to its high vitamin C content.
Cherry Juice: Hair BenefitsJust like the rest of the body, healthy and damage free hair are dependent on the supply of vital nutrients to the hair follicles. Hair problems can be caused if our diet is lacking in any of these nutrients. As stated earlier, the nutrients in cherry juice are comparable to those contained in fruits and vegetables. These can promote hair health as well.
Prevention of Hair Loss:Anaemia is the most common cause of hair loss and indicates that your diet is deficient in iron. Being rich in iron, cherry juice can prevent anaemia, thus combating hair loss.
Maintenance of Healthy Hair:Cherries are excellent sources of beta-carotene and anthocyanin antioxidants which are vital for hair and skin health. Thus, drinking cherry juice contributes to the maintenance of healthy hair.
Treats Insomnia:Tart cherries are a good natural source of melatonin, the hormone that regulates the body’s sleep patterns. The natural melatonin in tart cherry juice can promote healthy sleep and manage sleep disorders. Thus, tart cherry juice can be a healthy alternative to sleep medications.
Treatment of Gout and Arthritis:Gout is caused due to accumulation of uric acid in the blood. Cherry juice contains compounds that can relieve gout pain by lowering the levels of uric acid. Black cherry juice is effective in relieving arthritis pain due to its inflammatory properties.
Heart Healthy:Tart cherry juice contains the most powerful antioxidants including quercetin. This antioxidant prevents the oxidative damage caused by free radicals from low-density lipoprotein (LDL or “bad” cholesterol). On being oxidized this cholesterol adheres to the arterial walls, forming plaque that can cause heart attack and stroke.
Anti-Cancer:Carcinogens are harmful substances in water, air and food that can damage the body’s cells, which may result in cancer. Tart cherry juice contains antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins which possess anti carcinogenic capacity. These compounds are loaded with disease fighting chemicals such as perillyl alcohol, limonene and ellagic acid which can be beneficial in halting cell transformation that leads to cancer. Thus, cherry juice can be protective against cancers of the breast, lung, liver and skin.
Quick Muscle Recovery:The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of cherries can help in decreasing the incidence of exercise induced muscle damage and cure muscle soreness. Thus, drinking cherry juice facilitates quick muscle recovery after exercise by improving strength, decreasing inflammation and lowering the levels of oxidized lipids. I make sure to take two after all my workouts.
So guys to sum up I recommend introducing Montmorency cherry supplement into your daily routine!
