Cherries - A Natural Joint Pain Killer


Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry capsules are a nutritious, all-natural alternative for the more than 70 million people in the U.S. who suffer from arthritis and other chronic joint pain. Recent research has shown that tart cherries contain powerful antioxidants that may help relieve the pain of arthritis and gout and also protect the body against cardiovascular disease and inhibit cancer tumors.

Researchers believe that the pain relief may not come from a specific antioxidant in cherries, but may come from the synergistic effect of all the natural compounds in cherries. Tart cherries are well known to contain antioxidants including melatonin. In addition, cherries contain at least 17 natural compounds. Antioxidants are known to increase immune function and possibly decrease risk of infection and cancer by helping to prevent or repair damage to the body's cells.

The Benefit of Fruit - The Advantage of Science

Linda L. Patterson is a living testimony of the soothing affects of cherries on her joint pain. "I enjoy crocheting and lately my hands have been so painful, I couldn't crochet for more than about 30 minutes.", says Patterson. In an attempt to find relief from her pain, a friend recommended Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry capsules (www.fruitadvantage.com), a supplement made from red tart cherries. "Within the first week of taking the tart cherry capsules my hands felt so much better.", says Ms. Patterson. "I am now able to crochet without the pain in my hands."

Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry capsules are available from Traverse Bay Farms (www.traversebayfarms.com) a company in Bellaire, Michigan. Jennifer LaPointe, President of Traverse Bay Farms, says she receives calls daily about cherries and Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry capsules. "Many are searching for more natural remedies today and cherry capsules certainly fit the trend in society. Fruit Advantage combines the benefit of the fruit with the advantage of science.", says LaPointe.

Andrew LaPointe is Global Director of Marketing with the Traverse Bay Farms and Fruitceuticals venture.
