Eden Organic Tart Cherry Juice is pure juice from the Montmorency tart cherry variety (Prunus cerasus). The cherries are grown on family-owned organic orchards near the east shore of northern Lake Michigan, an ideal fruit tree producing area due to the seasonal lake effect.
Eden Cherry Juice is only made from cherries with no added water or other ingredients. The cherries are washed, hand sorted and pressed using no press aids or enzymes. The juice is lightly filtered and bottled in amber glass to protect its rich flavour, nutrients and bright colour. Shake and enjoy the slight cloudiness and sediment to show that is just simply good old-fashioned juice.
Benefits of Organic Tart Cherry Juice
Good for the Heart
Eden Cherry Juice is high in potassium and low in sodium, that may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke, thus promoting cardiovascular health. It is also reported that anthocyanins of tart cherries may protect artery walls from plaque build up and increased heart disease.
Good For Arthritis and Gout
The anthocyanins and their anlyon cyanidin are natural anti-inflammatory compounds found in the pigment of the Montmorency cherry variety and are 10 times more potent than aspirin to help with easing symptoms of chronic aches and pains. The compounds have the ability to inhibit two enzymes in the body that create prostaglandins that influence the production of the pain hormone. They also contain bioflavonoids that reduce uric acid build associated with arthritis and gout.
Good For Antioxidants
Montmorency cherries are a powerful source of at least 17 antioxidants that can benefit health. The presence of anthocyanins in tart cherries can potentially inhibit the growth of abnormal cells. The cherries also contain flavonoids kaempferol, isoqueritrin and quercetin that act as antioxidants to eliminate the byproducts of oxidative stress and slow the aging process.
Montmorency cherries contain allagic acid, a naturally occurring plant phenolic, known as a potent anti-carcinogenic compound. The cherries also contain perillyl alcohol that shuts down the growth of abnormal cells by depriving them of proteins that they need to grow. The cherries also contain melatonin which controls sleepiness at night, wakefulness in the daytime and functions as an antioxidant to help the body destroy free radicals.
Eden 100% Organic Cherry Juice
Compared to most other cherry juices, Eden Organic cherry juice is made from Montmorency tart cherries, which have many beneficial health properties as mentioned earlier.

People tend to dilute tart cherry juice before drinking it. For most brands, stir 2 tablespoons of the juice into 1 cup of 250ml of lemonade, orange or apple juice, milk, tea or other carbonated beverages. Most people will need to drink at least 250ml of the juice daily to gain the health benefits.
You can try these ideas when it comes to using your organic cherry juice. Drizzle it over ice cream or fresh fruit, serve it over cake or pancakes, stir it into your yogurt or oatmeal.
