    Thumbs up Five Black Cherry Juice Benefits

    The same chemical compound that causes the leaves of trees such as maples and sumacs among others to turn red in the autumn is also contained in the black cherry in high amounts. That compound is anthrocyanins. The anthrocyanins are actually present all the time in the leaves of many trees, it is just masked by the green of the chlorophyll. When the chlorophyll fades back in the autumn, the red color of the anthrocyanins show themselves in full spectacle.

    This anthrocyanin compound has a number of amazing capabilities, among them the ability to act as an anti-inflammatory agent, as a anti-carcinogenic agent, as an antioxidant, as a soporific agent, and as an anti-arthritic agent. The black cherry possess high amounts of vitamin A and C and bioflavenoids as well.

    As an anti-inflammatory agent the anthrocyanins are especially useful in treating gout. Gout is a very painful condition that occurs due to production of high levels of uric acid in the body. These are mainly believed to be associated with eating certain foods such as shell fish. It most commonly affects men and is localized in the big toe, though it can affect the joints of the fingers, elbows and knees as well. The big toe swells up, is reddened and extremely painful to the touch, so much so that you can't even put your shoes on. The anthrocyanins reduce the levels of uric acid in the body and allow the uric acid to pass safely out of the body with the urine. This not only relieves the pain from the gout, but can actually prevent the gout attacks from occurring in the first place.

    By preventing damage to the skin from the harmful ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays of the sun, anthrocyanins act to stop many forms of skin cancer from developing. They are also useful in preventing and reducing other forms of cancer as well.

    The powerful antioxidant effect of the anthroctanins prevent damage to the cells of the body from
    free radicals, which would otherwise lead to early dead of the various cells of the body, premature aging and illness.

    If you suffer from insomnia or just have trouble falling asleep at night, the soporific effect of the anthrocyanins work by releasing the hormone melatonin into your system. This produces a calming effect on the body allowing you to sleep naturally.

    The anti-arthritic capability associated with anthrocyanins, assisted by the bioflavenoids, helps to reduce the swelling that occurs in the joints when you are affected by arthritis and reduces the stiffness as well.

    Among the many other attributes of black cherry juice are lowering of blood pressure, protection of the heart, easing and even preventing migraines, help with formation of the connective tissue such as collagen and promoting good eye health. How much black cherry juice do you need to consume each day? Some people do well with just one glass a day, others need more, but taking the juice is easier than trying to eat three or more bowls of fresh cherries a day. Whether it will be effective for you is something you have to try for yourself, but the majority of people who do try
    it see some benefit.
