Tart Cherries may help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system and more...
Initial research from the University of Michigan finds tart cherry powder made from whole tart cherries may help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system and also fight cell oxidative stress (cell damage caused by free radicals).
Earlier, studies show that tart cherries are packed with naturally occurring antioxidants to help maintain a healthy body. On April 30, 2007, the results of a study conducted by the University of Michigan were presented at the Experimental Biology 2007 meeting in Washington D.C..
During the study, whole tart cherry powder was fed to two test groups of rats. The tart cherry powder equated either to 1 percent or 10 percent of their diets for a 90 day period. Another study group received diets with no whole cherry powder.
The results showed that the cherry-enriched diets had experienced additional health benefits when compared to the none cherry-enriched diets.
The researchers found that the rats in the study which were fed tart cherry powder benefited from just modest amounts of tart cherry powder. Some of the results included lower levels of cell oxidative stress (possibly due to the synergistic benefits of the compounds found in the tart cherry powder). In addition, the study indicated the tart cherry powder may also help maintain cardiovascular health in the subjects.
The researchers also indicated that after receiving promising cardiovascular results from using tart cherry powder in the study, the U of M team will soon launch clinical trials on humans.
