Boosting Heart Health with Cherrish: The Power of Montmorency Tart Cherries

In a world where cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in North America, taking care of your heart health is paramount. Fortunately, simple lifestyle modifications, including changes in diet and exercise, can make a significant difference. At Cherrish, we believe that Montmorency tart cherries could play a crucial role in maintaining your heart health, and here's why.

Color Your Diet for a Healthy Heart

Incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your diet is a great place to start improving your heart health. Particularly, deeply colored produce is packed with beneficial compounds known as phytonutrients. The darker the color, the more these health-boosting compounds it tends to contain.

Enter the ruby red Montmorency tart cherries – a vibrant, nutrient-dense fruit that brings a host of potential cardiovascular benefits. While research in this area is still developing, preliminary studies have explored the effects of tart cherries on blood pressure and blood lipids, including total cholesterol, LDL or “bad” cholesterol, and triglycerides.

A Closer Look at the Science

Researchers have been exploring the potential heart health benefits of Montmorency tart cherries in various studies. Here are some of the key findings:
