Cherry produces ten Times more Melatonin

Melatonin research has regarded the tart cherry with high regard and Dr. Russel Reiter who has spent 30 years researching was amazed by his findings of the hormone Melatonin and the abundance of it in the tart cherry. In addition, Montmorency cherries which are more widely produced contain up to 13.5 nanograms of melatonin per gram.. This ratio is more than what is found in our blood. And in comparison to other raw fruit cherry juice concentrate because of the lack of water has ten times more Melatonin.

Among the many forms of antioxidants, the hormone melatonin is the most potent favouring over vitamins A, E and C because of its ability to enter certain cells other vitamins cannot.

Cherries are a very tasty and nutritious fruit. They contain many vitamins, minerals and compounds which have many health benefits. Some studies have shown cherries are especially beneficial in fighting some cancers. They contain a number of anti-oxidants which help "mop up" free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules which cause damage to cells as the circulating molecule attacks other healthy cells. Damage to cells caused by free radicals have been shown to speed up the aging process.
