The PWG Total Energy™ Story
PWG Total energy combines ancient wisdom with modern science for a new kind of Antioxidant SuperFood Energy Drink. PWG Total energy will give you the energy you are used to from other energy
products or your morning coffee. But that is where the similarities end.
The Power of Coffee Bean Caffeine in PWG Total energy
There are many fortified energy drink products on the market today. Many of us, including our youth, spend hours surfing the net or watching TV while consuming several energy drinks per day. Why
should we be concerned about this new variety of mental stimulant? A cup or two of coffee every day has never caused serious health effects. The big difference relates to where the buzz comes from: natural coffee caffeine vs. laboratory produced synthetic caffeine.
This new market of energy drinks is made with synthetic caffeine. Synthetic caffeine is much more potent. All of the natural and organic substances that come with the natural caffeine sources do not
exist with factory produced synthetic caffeine. Synthetic caffeine is absorbed quickly by the body. Natural products like Coffee Bean caffeine, on the other hand, are absorbed more slowly by the body.
They are also less concentrated and therefore less toxic than synthetic caffeine. There are many advantages with the natural version of caffeine in Coffee Beans. The duration of the increased mental
clarity will be longer. Instead of the instant buzz you get from most energy drinks and then the inevitable crash, you get a prolonged feeling of alertness for many hours, and the effect eventually
wears off gradually. Another benefit occurs over the medium and long term. Continuous usage of synthetic caffeine tends to over saturate the nervous system which can lead to bigger problems. With
Coffee Bean caffeine our circulatory and elimination systems can easily eliminate this natural caffeine without taxing the nervous system.

PWG Total Energy Ingredients
Read about the incredible ingredients PWG Total Energy utilizes to boost your energy and antioxidant levels to the max
When we first think of caffeine, most of us merely think of coffee. However, in reality there are hundreds of thousands manufactured products that contain synthetic forms of caffeine. Most of us don’t realise that caffeine we drink in energy drinks is manufactured, often through the chemical synthesis of urea as the raw material. Furthermore, it is exposed to numerous harsh chemicals such as methylene chloride, ethyl acetate and carbon dioxide
Natural products like PWG Total Energy that use natural caffeine are absorbed naturally and slowly by the body. There are many advantages of natural caffeine in PWG Total energy. The duration of the increased mental clarity will be longer. Instead of the instant buzz you get from most energy drinks and then the inevitable crash, you get a prolonged feeling of alertness for many hours, and the effect eventually wears off gradually.
Black Seed (scientific name: Nigella Sativa) is known around the world and throughout history for its restorative and medicinal qualities. Truly Black Seed is one of nature’s greatest gifts, and that is probably why it is referred to as the “seed of blessing.” The ancient Egyptians and Assyrians recognized the power of this healing herb as early as 3000 years ago. Found in the tomb of Tutankhamen, “King Tut”, Black Seed was thought to help the Pharaohs in the afterlife. Physicians as far back as the 1st century used Black Seed to treat a variety of ailments and sicknesses.
Black Seed grows wild in the Mediterranean but has been cultivated in the Arabian Peninsula, Asia and Africa. It’s oil, which has a rich composition of more than 100 compounds including essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.
Black Seed is remarkable in that it is one of the few natural, herbal remedies that has been studied by the scientific community and found to have tremendous potential benefit. Today, more and more medical scientists and professionals are recognizing the power of this amazing little seed. It was recently recommended as an herbal remedy by the World Health Organization. Research continues to show the positive results of Black Seed, and it continues to generate excitement throughout the medical industry.
Black Seed it not commonly found in liquid nutrition products. PWG is the first company we know of to focus on this remarkable SuperFood. The Oil of the Black Seed has a strong pepper flavor, which explains why all the other products on the market have excluded it. PWG has used advanced manufacturing techniques to combine the Black Seed Oil in a delicious and comprehensive formula with SuperFoods from around the world.

The generations of past mention the healing methods of Aloe vera plants being handed down through the centuries by word of mouth. We find that the use of Aloe vera appears throughout history with many testimonials of its medicinal values. The earliest record of Aloe vera use comes from the Egyptians. There are records of the Egyptians drawing pictures of Aloe vera plants on the walls of the temples. Many cultures such as the Egyptians would have even elevated the plant to a ‘god-like’ status. The healing properties of the Aloe vera were utilized for centuries earning the name “Plant of Immortality”. One of the common myths about the Aloes was that the two Egyptian queens, Nefertiti and Cleopatra used Aloe vera as part of their beauty treatments. However some sources refute these findings.
The Mahometans of Egypt thought of Aloe vera as a religious symbol, and. they believed that the holy symbol hanging in the doorway would protect them from slanderous and evil influence. The Egyptians used the Aloe vera to make papyrus like scrolls as well as for treatment of tuberculosis. In ancient Egypt when a Pharaoh died, the funeral ceremony was by invitation only with a price tag included: a pound of Aloes. Egyptians used the odorous mixture of Aloe and myrrh for embalming and also placed it with the burial clothes. A man’s wealth and esteem for the king were estimated by the number of pounds of Aloes he brought.4
The aged people of Mesopotamia, a country located between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in present day Iraq used the Aloe vera to hold off the evil spirits from their residences. During the Crusades, the Knights of Templar created a drink of palm wine, Aloe pulp and hemp, which was named ‘the Elixir of Jerusalem’ and they believed that it added years to their health and life.
Aloe Vera’s Active Ingredients
Aloe vera could be considered a superfood, the leaf is filled with a gel containing at least 75 nutrients, 20 minerals, 12 vitamins, 18 amino acids, and 200 active enzymes. These compounds have tremendous benefit and potential in external and internal applications.
THE BENEFITS OF ALOE VERA HAVE BEEN KNOWN FOR CENTURIES!
When you are drinking Aloe Vera in PWG Plus you are taking a vitamin and mineral cocktail. You’ll be surprised to know that this bitter tasting juice contains a large variety of vital minerals and vitamins. You will get vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, Niacin and Folic Acid. Wait! That’s not all it contains minerals like Sodium, Iron, Calcium, Copper, Potassium, Magnesium, Manganese and Chromium, and not to forget the 19 amino acids out of which 8 are those that our body cannot produce itself..
The benefits of Aloe Vera are numerous and astonishing. And this is not because the inner gel of the leaves of the aloe plant is a “panacea”, but simply because it balances and complements satisfactorily our body’s nutrition.
Quercetin is an flavonoid (plant pigment) commonly found in fruits and vegetables, especially onions, citrus, and apples. Other sources include dark berries, grapes and olive oil. Green tea and red wine have also been pointed out as having notable amounts of quercetin. The primary benefit of quercetin is that it possesses potent antioxidants. Antioxidants fight against free radicals –- chemically reactive compounds that damage cell membranes and DNA and also cause cell death. In fact, many of the benefits you’ll often hear attributed to antioxidants refer to the effects associated with quercetin. Let’s take a look at what some of them are.
Supports Normal Respiratory HealthWhen your respiratory system is irritated, redness and swelling can result from the release of histamines, and quercetin has been reported to have an antihistamine effect. Lab tests have shown quercetin influences intracellular enzymes and may help inhibit histamine release. This can often provide relief for watery eyes, runny nose, and swelling in the face
Supports Cardiovascular HealthStudies have shown that the consumption of flavonoids, specifically quercetin, offer a twofold benefit (at least) in promoting overall cardiovascular health. First, it encourages blood flow. Secondly, researchers have observed that quercetin’s antioxidant action protects against LDL cholesterol oxidation. This may be beneficial because oxidation causes LDL cholesterol to stick to artery walls.
Promotes Balanced Blood PressureIn addition to supporting cardiovascular health, quercetin naturally promotes balanced blood pressure. A randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, crossover study evaluated the effect of quercetin supplementation and reported that the participants experienced a stabilization in systolic, diastolic and average arterial pressure.
Offers Protection Against StressWhen your body is stressed, it produces cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that produces that “fight or flight” response. Although this is normal, when your stress levels are high and ongoing, cortisol can damage muscle tissue, leading to protein breakdown in the body. Quercetin can fight these effects during times of extended stress as it suppresses the enzyme necessary for cortisol release
Potential for Upper Respiratory Conditions?
Although the jury is still out, numerous animal studies and lab models have suggested that quercetin may offer a bronchial dilating effect. A 2013 study determined that it inhibited an enzyme that breaks down signaling proteins which produce swelling and airway narrowing. Quercetin caused a relaxation of the airway smooth muscle, leading researchers to suggest it may offer therapeutic solutions for persons suffering from upper respiratory conditions.
Offers Nutritional Support for Overall HealthListen, putting good nutrition into your body is one of the best measures you can take to encourage good health. It’s not a guarantee, and some people will still get sick, but it’s a good foundation and fundamental approach. Why should quercetin be part of your approach? Because research has shown that people who consume more fruits and vegetables have a lower risk of diseases.
Grape Skin Extract
Resveratrol from Grape Skin is an extremely potent antioxidant (part of the family called polyphenols). In nature, the highest concentration is found in grapes.
Many researchers believe that Resveratrol is primarily responsible for what’s called “The French Paradox”: the observation that the people of France, in general, enjoy good cardiovascular health even though their diet is high in fat.
A 2003 study at Harvard University found that resveratrol mimics the effects of caloric restriction in yeast cells, boosting their life spans by as much as 70%.3 The following year the researchers went on to demonstrate that resveratrol slows aging in two standard laboratory animals, roundworms and fruit flies.4 That made resveratrol the first compound to show anti-aging effects in widely divergent species. Then in 2006, scientists in Pisa, Italy, showed that resveratrol’s magic could be applied to more advanced animals— large doses of resveratrol extended the life span by more than 50% in a species of fish, Nothobranchius furzeri, which typically lives just nine weeks.
Since the study found a link between sirtuins and energy utilization, the researchers concluded that resveratrol may be helpful in the prevention and treatment of certain metabolic disorders, especially those related to mitochondrial dysfunction, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease—two neurodegenerative conditions that become more prevalent with aging.
It is interesting that resveratrol is not found in the flesh of the grape only in the skin. But this explains why red wines contain higher concentrations of resveratrol than white wines or rose wines. The process of making red wine calls for the skins of the grapes to stay in contact longer with the final wine.
The blueberry was gathered and used by Native Americans for centuries before colonists arrived from Europe. The blueberry was sacred to the Indians in part because the blossom-end of the berry is shaped like a five-pointed star. The Indians believed that the berries were sent by the Great Spirit during a great famine to relieve the hunger of their children.
The Native Americans ate blueberries fresh and dried them to preserve them for use in winter. The berries were mixed with meat to make pemmican, and mixed with cornmeal, honey and water to make a pudding called “sautauthig”. The juice of the fruit was used to make cough syrup while the leaves were made into a tea meant to fortify the blood. The juice was also used as a dye for cloth and baskets.
The health benefits of blueberries are even bigger than you might know. Scientific studies show that blueberries contain a category of phytonutrients called polyphenols. This group includes anthocyanins which give blueberries their blue color. Research suggests that polyphenols have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can play an important role in helping to lessen the inflammatory.
Blueberries are high in Vitamin C, which promotes a healthy immune system, and manganese, which plays an important role in bone development. They’re also a good source of dietary fiber, which contributes to heart health, helping to keep cholesterol in check.
Plus, one easy way to make sure you’re eating a balanced diet is to fill your plate with a rainbow of fruits and vegetables … and blueberries provide that perfect shade of blue!
The first apple juice benefit is that it is rich in important nutrients which protect us from various illnesses. It consists of various vitamins like Vitamin A and Vitamin C as well as various minerals such as phosphorous, iron, chlorine, silicon, potassium and calcium. Another of the health benefits of apple juice is that you can mix it with any other healthy juice and make it even more nutritious like PWG energy!
Everyone is familiar with the age-old saying, “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away.” Often eaten raw, apples have myriad benefits. Moreover, when apples, celery and carrots are blended, the health benefits have no bar. The earliest cultivation of apples probably took place in Turkey thousands of years ago when it was consumed only as a fruit. Since then, this juicy fruit has come long way, and is now also used to make scrumptious pies, jams, and various other delicacies.
Benefits of apple juice are one too many, enriching your body right from almost all types of vitamins to essential minerals like iron, phosphorous, and potassium.
Apple juice contains an ample amount of Vitamin A and C. Vitamin A helps to improve vision as it contains beta-carotene. On the other hand Vitamin C is a good source of anti oxidant and makes our immune system strong. Other vitamins found in Apple juice in comparatively small proportion are Vitamin K, Vitamin E, Vitamin B1, B2 and B3.
Ancient legend, world religions, history and traditional medicine have all celebrated the unique
beauty and health benefits of the pomegranate. It is a fruit of legend and power – a sacred symbol of human civilization.
Mankind has revered the magical, mystical pomegranate since the dawn of recorded history. Ancient Greeks, Romans, and the peoples of China, India and the Middle East found its properties to be life-giving and invigorating.
This beautiful fruit has played a central role in the mythological and spiritual foundations of cultures worldwide. Christianity, Judaism, Greek Orthodox, Hinduism, and ancient Middle Eastern philosophies all revered its power and mysterious properties.
In Buddhism, the pomegranate is considered a blessed fruit. In Judaism, it represents sanctity, fertility and abundance.
Pomegranates are a powerful symbol in Christian art representing the resurrection and eternal life. In works by Botticelli, Raphael and Filippino Lippi pomegranates represent plenitude, hope, spiritual fruitfulness and chastity.
Known as “The Fruit of Life,” pomegranates were believed to spring from The Garden of Paradise. As the traditional symbol of fertility and rebirth, they became a popular wedding present in some countries, expressing the wish, “May you have as many children as there are seeds!”
Pomegranates figured prominently in Greek myths. In one of the most famous, Hades, god of the underworld, used the fruit to tempt Persephone, daughter of Zeus, into marriage. Hades captured her attention with the alluring beauty of the pomegranate and by telling her that its seeds were jewels to be kissed and savored. Sadly the seduction of Persephone with a pomegranate resulted in her being imprisoned for four months every year in the Underworld, while the earth experienced cold winter. When she was released for eight months each year, the earth warmed, trees and flowers bloomed and vegetables grew. Thanks to the myth, pomegranates forever became a symbol of the cycle of life and death.
The Pomegranate as Traditional Medicine
Almost every major culture loved the pomegranate so much that for nearly 8,000 years people have incorporated the delicate flowers, the sparkling ruby seeds (called arils), the juice and tangy rind, not only in their sacred practices but also into their foods, their medicines and their cosmetics.
It is believed that the beautiful Helen of Troy, with a face that launched 1,000 ships, used the juice of the pomegranate, both as a healthful drink, and as rouge for her cheeks and lips.
The pomegranate was also thought to bestow invincibility upon the person who enjoyed its glittering sweet tartness.
Ancient Indian Ayurvedic medicine traditionally used pomegranate to lower fever. In Greek medicine the flowers were used to treat diabetes, while the root and bark were used to stop bleeding, dysentery and heal ulcers. The ancient Egyptians used the fruit to combat intestinal worms.
For over 4,000 years humans have cultivated pomegranates for their medicinal properties. Traditional healers experimented with its juice, seeds, leaves, flowers, bark, roots and skin.
The Pomegranate and Modern Science
But the golden age of the pomegranate is just dawning. In addition to an ancient, glorious and legendary past, this beautiful fruit is on the edge of a promising future in medical science.
It is only recently that modern science has accelerated its interest in the health benefits of pomegranates. In 1964 researchers conducted the first study on pomegranate. It was another 20 years before the second study was published. In 2004 there were 20 published studies. Today, there are over 400 studies on the benefits of pomegranates to human health.
This scientific research has revealed that the pomegranate contains three primary powers: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and hormone balancing.
Antioxidant polyphenols in pomegranates help protect the body against ‘free radicals” – unstable molecules that cause cellular damage to our bodies over time. The juice of the pomegranate has been found to contain higher levels of antioxidants than most other fruit juices, including cranberry or blueberry, and more even than red wine or green tea. The pomegranate is particularly rich in certain tannins containing these antioxidant polyphenols such as punicalagin, anthocyanins and ellagic acid.
Anti-inflammatory compounds in pomegranate include punicic acid, a fatty acid found in the oil of pomegranate seeds. Punicic acid is known to inhibit the effects of certain inflammatory compounds in the body.
Natural phytoestrogens (estrogens from plants) are more abundant in pomegranate than in any other botanical source. These weaker plant estrogens block the effects of more powerful human-produced estrogens by fitting into the cell receptor sites for estrogen. These weak, safe estrogens can fit in these specialized “keyholes,” blocking the more powerful and harmful estrogens.
Noni is definitely the fruit of the Morinda citrifolia tree, which is indigenous to the regions of Southeast Asia to Australia. The Morinda citrifolia is really a tree of the coffee family, and is also identified by distinct titles all over the earth. A number of the widespread titles of this tree are usually, Indian mulberry, great morinda, cheese fruits and also beach mulberry. This tree can easily attain a height of approximately 12 feet. Noni fruit is green in color, yet ultimately turns into yellowish green whenever ripened. It will take about Three months on an average for the noni fruits to ripen. Noni fruits are these days more and more utilized for producing nutritional supplements, since they are proven to supply a number of health advantages. The health supplements mostly are obtainable in the form of noni juice.
Noni is actually a Distinctive Exotic FRUIT which is cultivated within the Pacific Islands. It is known to the Pacific Island people as being a advantageous foodstuff. Usually it is used as a beverage to boost bodily functionality as well as assist all round great health. It really is well known as the “Aspirin of the Ancient”. It has been used successfully for more than 2,000 years in Polynesia, China India and also elsewhere and grows best wherever there is pollution free volcanic soil. The Cook Islands being one of several regions where it grows, have a distinctive feature; those are the only region on the planet that may claim to be totally “Organic” in the horticulture.
Health Benefits of Noni Fruit
Noni fruit is starting to become most popular as being a health supplement in the United States as well as given it is currently readily available all over the world; more and more people are boasting its health advantages. Noni fruit has had hardly any scientific study therefore; the benefits supplied in this post are to this day not scientifically confirmed. We do know that this is a effective anti-oxidant as well as anti-inflammatory which usually certainly have applications to enhancing overall health.
Antioxidants assist to battle toxins within the body. Free-radicals include the byproducts of food metabolism. Free radicals result in the oxidization of tissues. This originally leads to swelling in your body and finally can result in disease. Antioxidants eliminate toxins supplying the body along with defense against cardiovascular disease as well as cancer.
Noni fruit is really a effective anti-inflammatory that makes it relevant in lots of inflamation related illnesses. Conditions just like arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, as well as osteoarthritis particularly, noni fruit might help relieve the symptoms. Swelling in joints causes swelling, pain as well as lack of motion. By reduction of swelling in joints, the sufferer can get decreased swelling, enhancement in pain levels as well as rise in joint flexibility. Various other inflamation related problems that may benefit consist of psoriasis, eczema, acne, asthma, inflammatory bowel diseases and dermatitis.
3. Anti-Aging With Noni Juice
Noni juice includes a number of effective anti-oxidants. Antioxidants are extremely beneficial simply because they avoid free-radicals from damaging cells. They assist numerous body systems just like the defense, circulatory, digestive, metabolic, and nervous system. Anti-oxidants will also be very helpful in stopping skin aging as well as skin damage. They’re extremely effective anti-aging substances. Noni juice likewise helps produce xeronine within the body, that is a extremely effective agent in restoring broken cells
4. Supports the Immune System
Since noni juice raises the assimilation of food, essential immune-supporting nutrition be more easily available to the body. Additionally, noni juice increases the elimination of waste elements through the body, therefore restricting the cells’ contact with harmful toxins which enter in the body’s system because of contaminated air or water within the atmosphere.
The human body is constantly assaulted by an inexhaustible list of toxic chemicals found in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and in the personal care and cleaning products that we use. Add to this, exposure to viruses, bacteria and fungi that are increasingly more deadly and we have a recipe for premature aging, disease, and death. Noni appears to be a substance that can protect us from these invaders and help us flourish.
Pear Juice contains vitamins A, B1, B2, C, E, folic acid and niacin. It is also rich in copper, phosphorus and potassium, with lesser amounts of calcium, chlorine, iron, magnesium, sodium and sulfur.
The common pear, probably of European origin, has been cultivated since long before the Christian era. Thousands of varieties have been bred and named since ancient times in Europe alone. The pear was introduced into the New World by British and other Europeans as soon as the colonies were established. Also at an early date, Spanish missionaries carried the fruit to Mexico and California.
Fight Free Radicals
Pears are naturally high in vitamins C and K, as well as nutrients such as copper—all of which act as antioxidants to protect our cells from damage from free radicals. One pear contains up to 11 percent of our daily recommended intake of vitamin C and 9.5 percent of our daily recommended intake of copper. Pears
Health benefits of pears
Pears fruit is packed with health benefiting nutrients such as dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins, which are necessary for optimum health. Total measured antioxidant strength (ORAC value) in pears is 2941 µmol TE/100 g.
Pears are a good source of dietary fiber. 100 g fruit provides 3.1 g or 8% of fiber per 100g. Regular eating of this fruit may offer protection against colon cancer. Most of the fiber in them is non soluble polysaccharide (NSP), which functions as a good bulk laxative in the gut. Additionally, its gritty fiber content binds to cancer-causing toxins and chemicals in the colon, protecting its mucous membrane from contact with these compounds.
In addition, pear fruit is one of the very low calorie fruits; provides just 58 calories per 100g. A low calorie but high fiber diet may help bring significant reduction in body weight, and blood LDL cholesterol levels.
They contain good quantities of vitamin C. Fresh fruits provide about 7% of RDA per 100 g.
They are moderate sources of antioxidant flavonoids phyto-nutrients such as beta-carotene, lutein and zea-xanthin. These compounds, along with vitamin C and A, help the body protected from harmful free radicals.
The fruit is a good source of minerals such as copper, iron, potassium, manganese and magnesium as well as B-complex vitamins such as folates, riboflavin and pyridoxine (vitamin B-6).
Although not well documented, pears are among the least allergenic of all the fruits. For the same reason, they often recommended by health practitioners as a safe alternative in the preparation of food products for allergic persons.
Pears have been suggested in various traditional medicines in the treatment of colitis, chronic gallbladder disorders, arthritis, and gout.
Concord Grape Juice
Native to North America, the dark-blue, slip-skin grape is a descendant of wild grape Vitis labrusca species that grew uncultivated in New England in the early 1800s. The grape’s origin has been well documented, and according to the Concord Grape Association, it was developed by Ephraim Wales Bull in 1849, and is named for Concord, Massachusetts, where the original Concord parent vine still grows today, near Bull’s farmhouse.
Bull planted and evaluated some 22,000 seedlings before he found his perfect grape—one that survived cold winters and killing frosts and thrived in U.S. soils where European Vitis vinifera grapes did not.
The variety won first prize at Boston Horticultural Society Exhibition in 1853. In 1866, Horace Greeley named it best grape for general cultivation, awarded it a cash prize, and declared it “the grape for millions.”
Concord grapes actually have the power to keep us youthful because they contain high concentrations of antioxidants that protect our skin, brain and heart from inflammation and aging. The healthiest part of the grape is the skin, which is packed with not one but 19 different types of health-supporting nutrients.
Although you’re probably familiar with grape juices and jam, you may not know that medical studies on Concord Grape Juice have been underway for almost 10 years. They’ve shown that Concord Grapes are loaded with various kinds of flavonoids, a type of powerful antioxidant that is also found in berries, cocoa, red wine, and tea.
In fact, purple Concord Grape Juice ranks the highest in antioxidant activity among 13 juices tested, according to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in March 2007.
For years leading researchers have been investigating the nutrition power of Concord grapes. Growing evidence now suggests that eating and drinking Concord grapes and Concord grape products, as part of a produce-rich diet and active lifestyle, may positively impact health. Concord grape research has focused mainly on the fruit’s role in cardiovascular or heart health, but other emerging areas are also being studied.
Concord grape and cranberry juices get their vivid hue from anthocyanins — blue, purple and red pigments that offer nutritional value. Anthocyanins work in combination with other nutrients to offer antioxidant protection for your tissues, and a diet rich in anthocyanins is associated with better vision, a lower risk of neurodegenerative diseases and better cardiovascular health.
The unassuming tart cherry has a very long history of offering an entire range of natural health advantages to anyone interested in enjoying a more active and healthy lifestyle. In fact the tart cherry has been around since the beginning of time and has traveled across the world. Over the centuries is has made its way Asia to Europe and finally brought to the New World by the first settlers in 1600’s.
The powerful antioxidants, anthocyanins, found in cherries, give them their rich red color. These same anthocyanins are also found in blueberries and other purplish-red fruits and vegetables, and they offer protection from “Free Radical” damage at the cellular level.
How Anti-oxidants Repair Our Bodies
If you take antioxidants, the antioxidants provide the electrons that these free radicals (molecular thieves) need so they can leave the electrons from your healthy cells alone.
Cherries contain an abundance of 17 antioxidants including anthocyanins and melatonin (an efficient antioxidant). The consumption of any tart cherry products is followed by the uptake of the antioxidants into the body where they ward off tissue destruction (referred to scientifically as oxidative stress) that could cause aging and disease.
MORE HEALTH BENEFITS
Drinking Tart Cherry Juice daily may help any health conscious people looking for the possibility of improved health and pain-free living. Tart Cherry Juice is not a “cure”, but provides pain relief and increased mobility to those suffering from inflammatory conditions.

- Nutrition Facts of Tart Cherry Juice
Tart cherry juice benefits come from the various antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals it contains. Furthermore, it does not have cholesterol or fat although it is rich in carbohydrates. Tart cherry juice is rich in vitamins A and C as well as potassium. Studies show that eating vitamin A and C rich foods improves immune system function, enhances wound healing, and improves your vision in low light conditions. In addition, studies suggest that consuming potassium-rich foods helps lower blood pressure and decreases one’s risk of developing kidney stones.
The natural antioxidant called anthocyanins is found in red, blue, and purple-colored fruits such as tart cherries. This is important because diets enriched with antioxidants have been associated with reduced risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Tart cherries are also known to contain flavones, or antioxidants, which improve brain and heart health, blood flow, and blood pressure.
