Rich in Anti-Oxidants to Support a Healthier Body
The "after-burn" following a good workout, run, or sports session is often all the proof we need that we gave things our all. When our body aches, we know we've pushed it to the limit. In the absence of pain, clearly we weren’t working hard enough.
But what happens when the post-workout burn over-extends its stay? What if on day two or three, when we’re ready to exercise again with a fresh, rejuvenated body, we’re still aching from our last session? Now the muscle soreness that was once a badge of honor is nothing more than a stumbling block along our path to physical fitness. Our joints are too stiff to exercise again, so we take a day off … and then another … and then another. You get the picture.
Benefits of Tart Cherry
Adding a natural, anti-inflammatory product to your routine can help minimize the soreness you feel after vigorous activity so you’re always ready to go the next time around. Labrada’s new Tart Cherry anti-oxidant should be taken for this very reason. Containing rich natural compounds that have been shown to support the relief of occasional inflammation, Tart Cherry can help speed up your recuperation time in between workouts or other bouts of physical activity. Reports on the main compounds in Tart Cherry support its ability to do so: In a study that tested the efficacy of tart cherry juice in preventing the symptoms of exercise-induced muscle damage, strength loss and pain were significantly less in the cherry juice trial versus placebo. This suggests that Tart Cherry has the potential to speed up recovery from exercise induced-muscle damage, thus allowing your body to adapt faster to increasing exercise demands. Bottom line: You can continue to exercise as scheduled, maintain your desired level of physical activity, and stay on track with reaching your goals.
It's not just about reducing soreness
A growing body of evidence suggests that chronic inflammation (also known as "silent inflammation") contributes to the development of common age-related diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and even aging itself. As a natural anti-inflammatory with anti-oxidant health properties, Tart Cherry supports healthy joint function and helps reduce inflammation. It's important to note that Tart Cherry does not have the negative side effects of classical anti-inflammatory drugs, such as stomach ulcers, prolonged bleeding time, kidney problems, and others.
So much power in a fruit so small
So why Tart Cherry? Everyone is familiar with cherries – but not everyone may realize that they are rich in phenolic compounds, which are being examined for their potentially beneficial health effects. Most notably, the anthocyanins extracted from cherries have been found to exhibit anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties. Cherries also contain other interesting substances that, when combined, make this fruit a powerful tool in guarding against common health concerns, such as the ones listed above.
Labrada's Tart Cherry contains 1200mg Cherry Pure™ in two capsules, the equivalent of approximately 80 cherries. Prepared from mature, clean, Montmorency tart cherries, this pure fruit concentrate is free of artificial flavors, colors or additives.
Watching your weight and cardiovascular health?
You may be familiar with the term "metabolic syndrome," which has been described as "a combination of medical disorders that, when occurring together, increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes."
Animal studies show that intake of tart cherry, due to its rich content of anthocyanin, has beneficial effects on many aspects of metabolic syndrome-related disorders. In these studies, results showed that the tart cherry supplementation reduced hyperlipidemia (elevated blood lipid levels), percentage of fat mass, abdominal fat, body weight, and levels and activity of several inflammatory markers. While studies are still out on the effects of Tart Cherry on humans, first-hand accounts and testimonials from people already using the product are promising.
There’s a lot more to learn about tart cherries – for example, their role in supporting normal sleep patterns. Because tart cherries are one of the few food sources of the sleep hormone melatonin, they may actually improve sleep quality.
