Tart Cherry Info

Cherries have been popular for millennia, for food, for their aesthetic appeal and also in herbal medicine. Tart cherries are the fruit of the Montmorency cultivar of the Prunus cerasus tree, and are loved for their culinary as well as for their potential therapeutic uses.

Tart Cherry Benefits

Tart cherry is a natural source of phytomelatonin, a plant-sourced naturally-occurring form of melatonin, the hormone responsible for balanced sleep/wake cycles. In our modern lives, melatonin production is easily disrupted, due to too many hours spent looking at screens, irregular sleep routines, working night shifts, jet lag and too much light. Tart cherry may support the body’s natural sleep patterns.

As well as this, tart cherry has traditionally been used to support the body’s response to painfully high uric acid levels, and may support maintenance of healthy uric acid levels in the blood.

Product Reviews

  • Good but maybe not for everybody

    star- web-tec.info

    This product is good in that it seemed to work as expected i.e. improve one’s ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. However, after about a week of taking it (15 ml) on a daily basis, I started to feel unwell. The symptoms were fatigue and headache. These symptoms became worse over the subsequent week. Then it occurred to me that that as cherries are high in salicylates, then tart cherry is probably high in salicylates. I am sensitive to salicylates and the symptoms I experienced while taking this product were very similar to those I experience when I eat high salicylate foods or take medication containing salicylates. I would imagine that 15 ml of this product is equivalent to quite a few cherries. I don’t have absolute proof that this product was the culprit but my symptoms began to disappear 48 hours after my last dose. I would advise that anyone who has a salicylate sensitivity use this product cautiously or consider using an alternative product.
