Tart Cherries Extract - Natural source of Melatonin
Common Names: Tart Cherries
Parts Used: Cherries
Tart Cherries Extract from Pure Herbs contains among other things something called Melatonii(mell-uh-tone-in). This is a substance normally made by a gland deep in the back of the brain known as the pineal (pi-nee-al) gland. THis name pineal refers to the shape which is roughly like that of a pine cone.
The pineal gland contains cells similar to the cells of the human eye, it also contains crystals. Medical text books often refer to these crystals as "brain dust." It is believed that both of these structures are activated in some way by light.
On a physical level, Melatonin has been recognized as necessary for a good night's sleep in addition it has the responsiblity for the proper functioning of the biological clock.
These are the living clocks in the brain that time the process of hormone production in the body, as well as other functions. It is believed that Melatonin plays a large role in the aging process of the human body.
Take turtles as a comparision. Turtles continue to be active and behave as turtles throughout the duration of their lives. THere are no senior citizen homes, prisons or insane asylums for turtles. Additionally, no matter how long they live, they do not stop their sexual functions nor do they stop producing young for as long as they live.
This is probably the way the human body should function also. Unfortuantly we seem to run out of Melatonin and therefore have difficulty producing hormones.
In addition to a rich supply of Melatonin, Tart Cherries Extract contain compounds called Anthocyanins (ann-tho-sigh-ann-ins). Natural food researchers, at Michigan State University, have shown these anthocyanins to work ten times better than aspirin to reduce swelling and discomfort.
These same anthocyanins are also shown to be more effective than Vitamin C and Vitamin E in preventing plaque "junk" from clogging up our arteries and heart.
Tart Cherries have also been shown to be extremely effective in shrinking tumors@
Best yet - it taste good, just like Mom's cherry pie.
