“Effects of Montmorency tart cherry (Prunus Cerasus L.) consumption on vascular function in men with early hypertension,” Am J Clin Nutr 2016 103: 1531
Now, hold on!
Cherry juice has been documented to help with arthritis, alright. What is it doing helping with arterial issues like hypertension?
You would be clear on the answer if you were reading the medical literature, or this website:
ALL diseases involve cellular T.O.I.L., no matter which cells we are talking about. Whether they are joint cells, arterial cells, brain cells, or immune system cells they all TO.I.L.
T for Toxicity
O for Oxidation
I for Inflammation
L for Less than optimal Mitochondrial function (or Lack of Love—More on this later)
This is why we see so many articles showing that anti-oxidants in our diet and supplementation are helpful (“Multivitamin Use and the Risk of Cardiovascular Disease in Men.” J. Nutrition J. Nutr. 2016 146: 1235.)
And, this is why other juices have also been shown to help with T.O.I.L. in seemingly disparate health conditions:
Cranberry for Urine Infections, right? It also helps the heart
Pomegranate juice for the heart, right? It also reduces the risk of cancer and improves brain function.
Now the article “Migraine and risk of cardiovascular disease in women: prospective cohort study (BMJ 2016;353:i2610) makes more sense, doesn’t it?
Moral of the story: you cannot be healthy unless you eat your veggies.
