Support for Muscles and Exercise Recovery!
With nearly 40 scientific studies published on the wide-ranging benefits of tart cherries‚ scientists are now discovering important new health applications for this American fruit. Tart cherries are packed with unique beneficial compounds that have been shown to block COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes‚ as well as maintain muscle function and promote rapid muscle recovery after exercise‚ bringing faster relief from the minor aches‚ discomfort‚ and stiffness that can follow everyday muscle exertion.
In human studies‚ researchers have scientifically confirmed the muscle supporting benefits of tart cherries. For example‚ a randomized controlled trial found that consuming tart cherry juice twice daily produced a substantial decrease in muscle symptoms related to exercise. In the same study‚ the exercise-induced loss of strength over the four days following a workout was reduced from 22% to only 4%.
In another randomized controlled trial‚ marathon runners given tart cherry juice for five days before a race‚ on race day‚ and for two days after a race experienced significantly faster recovery of isometric strength and muscle function. And in yet another controlled trial‚ tart cherry juice taken twice daily for seven days prior to a race produced a significantly smaller increase in post-race pain‚ according to a standard pain assessment scale‚ compared to the placebo group.
Anthocyanins are powerful molecules that provide the dark pigmentation to blueberries‚ raspberries‚ and bilberries. In addition to being potent antioxidants‚ anthocyanins have been extensively studied for their numerous health benefits that include heart‚ cellular‚ and cognitive health.
What has drawn the attention of scientists is the fact that tart cherries not only contain a higher content of anthocyanins than other fruits‚ they also contain unique anthocyanins not found in other berries. To allow members to take full advantage of these discoveries‚ Life Extension® now offers Tart Cherry Extract‚ a 100% natural supplement that opens the door to the remarkable benefits of continued physical activity—at any age.
This formulation provides all the muscle-supporting benefits of tart cherries and mimics the anthocyanin dose used in successful clinical trials by providing a standardized 40 mg anthocyanins per capsule.

Overall Rating for Tart Cherry Extract with Standardized CherryPure - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
from Seattle, WA
I read about the benefits of tart cherry juice for pain and began by drinking the juice (4 oz AM and PM). I found it effective to remove joint and muscle pain. The juice is expensive, a pain to get at the grocery and bring home not to mention the sugar content. LifeExtension has a great article on their product and the studies that have been done. I decided to order the capsules and give them a try. I find them just as helpful as drinking the juice without the bother listed above. I highly recommend anyone experiencing joint or muscle pain to try Tart Cherry Extract by Life Extension. You have little to lose and much to gain. Ordering this from PureFormulas is easy, inexpensive and quickly delivered.
Removes joint and muscle pain in a healthy, inexpensive way. Easy to take and no negative side effects.
Nothing. It's great.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
