Tart Cherry Extract, obtained from the fruit of Prunus cerasus (acidic Montmorency cherry, or sour cherry) and standardised to 6.5% anthocyanins, offers powerful anti-aging properties that help maintain optimal health.
Scientists have analyzed the various constituents of sour cherries, particularly the specific anthocyanins responsible for the fruit's characteristic red colour. Although some anthocyanins are found in different types of raspberry, cranberry, blueberry, apple and grape, there are others which are only found in Tart Cherry extract (cyanidin-3-glucosylrutinoside, cyanidin-3-rutinoside, peonidin) where they act synergistically with other flavonoids (quercetin, chlorogenic acid, kaempferol).
