Tart Cherry info: 

Tart cherries, also known as sour cherries, contain compounds, including a class of polyphenols known as anthocyanins, that help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.1,2

 

Research has shown that tart cherries can relieve arthritis pain, boost cognition, improve cardiovascular health, benefit endurance athletes, and target the underlying factors of gout.1,3

Tart cherries have been widely used to boost recovery and performance for athletes.

A 2020 meta-analysis of trials on endurance athletes confirmed that tart cherry concentrate intake significantly improves endurance exercise performance.4

In recent randomized controlled trials, those drinking tart cherry juice had improvements in a variety of areas:

  • Healthy older adults who drank two cups (16 oz) of tart cherry juice daily for 12 weeks had improved scores on tests of cognitive abilities, including reaction time, a learning task, and spatial working memory compared to baseline.5
  • In subjects 50 and older suffering from insomnia, drinking one cup (8 oz) of tart cherry juice twice daily for two weeks led to increased sleep time and sleep efficiency. Researchers noted that tart cherry juice prevented the degradation of tryptophan, an essential amino acid that may help treat sleep disorders.6
  • In overweight or obese individuals, one cup (8 oz)/day of tart cherry juice reduced serum uric acid concentration by 19.2% and C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation) by 19.4%.7 Elevated blood uric acid is the underlying cause of gout, which is a painful form of arthritis.8

Tart cherries and their juice are naturally high in sugar. Many people prefer to avoid this sugar load and take tart cherry extract instead.

In one study, taking tart cherry extract was 15.4% more effective at reducing the odds of a gout attack than eating cherries.9

A wealth of data shows that tart cherry extract can provide a wide range of health benefits.

A potential new use for tart cherry extract has been uncovered.

When components of tart cherry were tested on oral epithelial cells (cells that line the surfaces of the mouth), they improved the protective barrier function. Tart cherry also reduced the ability of oral pathogens to clump together in sticky white plaque that forms on teeth and gums.10

In a different study, tart cherry extract reduced growth and activity of the bacteria that are the main cause of gingivitis (inflammation of the gums).11,12 These studies suggest that tart cherry extract fights oral pathogens and may help prevent and treat oral plaque.

Hey DukeA#1, your most welcome! I honestly, thought it was a bunch of happy hippy shit, that was sort of an old wives tale. I was learning to live with those aches and pains, and was taking OTC pain relief stuff, but the side effects of that stuff just made other issues pop up, that ultimately sent me to relook some of the hippy shit about natural living, green sprout shakes and what not.

I wanted to fight it, I wanted to keep opening prepared, precooked, canned, frozen dinners, snacks. Once I realized I needed blood work, I needed opinions outside the AMA realm. I found where that article came from. 

Yeah, $21.00 for concentrate, seems steep, 32 ounces of concentrate will make 32 - 8 ounce glasses of juice would be like $.70 a day, for a month,  just off the top of my head using Jethro Bodeen math skills, LOL!

AND, you did not sit there pitting 60+ FREAKING pounds of tart Morties,  so no need for tree envy, LOL!!

I took measurements of the plants, in 3 weeks most have grown at least 10", some 13", one grew 19!!!!!!! The Do-Si-Dos Zkittlez is the one that grew 19, for sure will put her out next year. Black cherry soda is about 50" tall, but 44" wide, that thing is gonna be a big ole mother.

I bought this mold thinking it would be thick enough to put caramel in there, no way lol each is 1" by 1/2", sweet little pieces of chocolate. Nice for dosing though. 40mg each. The mold makes 6 candy bars like this.

I don't know if cancelling an event for Covid counts as cancel culture.

Hey Harforc, yeah I've been reading about folks asking crazy money for AF, like $700.00 for a clone of it. I very quickly give the finger to a price like that, as when you wait, it will eventually fall from the must have crowd, and I'll get it for pennies on the dollar. I love the herd mentality, I just never follow it. FOMO, has driven new cannabis strains to stupid costs, for ages. 

In my post above, that guy (dabincy)  is in 2nd place, on a Honda Super Cub 125 cc's!! No chase truck, all his gear, spare tires, on the scoot, he rode from California to Bar Harbor Maine, to ride back to Cali, in 10 days. Yesterday's leg #7 of 10,  Hot Springs SD to Rock Springs WY, with 2- 10,000 feet elevation points,  a total of 526 mile ride to the hotel!!! 67 started, I think 34 are still in it. The 65 miles of dirt roads, had riders bailing out! Some reported their scooters parts were flying off from the horrific vibrations they were enduring. 

2 rides have been ambulanced to hospital care, but seem ok. Some broken fingers and ribs, I think. I love the grit these folks have!
