Doctor Oz Feature on Tart Cherry Juice, the Ultimate Antioxidant

Doctor Oz recommends tart cherry juice for antioxidants

Tart cherry juice was recently featured on the popular Dr. Oz Show. You can see a video of the show here:

Amazing Antioxidants: Tart Cherry Juice

In the feature, Dr. Oz talked about some of the exciting research being done on Montmorency tart cherries, particularly in the areas of heart health, muscle recovery and natural melatonin. It was really a great segment, with good information as to why tart cherry juice has been making so much news lately.

If you’ve decided to go ahead and try tart cherry juice, you’ll want to be  sure you’re getting 100% tart cherry juice and that it’s made from Montmorency tart cherries. Montmorency tart cherries (also called “sour cherries” or “pie cherries”) are the cherries on which the health research is being conducted.

Also, consider tart cherry juice concentrate. King Orchards tart cherry juice concentrate is very affordable. One 32 oz bottle has 32 servings, or a one month’s supply, so it works out to well under $1 per day.

    What is the difference in dark cherry juice, and tart cherry juice.

    • John says:

      The cherry juice that is getting all of the attention is made from Montmorency Tart cherries. It is high in melatonin and antioxidants. We call it tart cherry juice concentrate. Nationally there are more dark sweet cherries grown, and the marketers of sweet cherry juice have tried to cash in on the buzz from research on tart cherries.

  2. Please clarify how many ounces of tart cherry juice should be taken daily to receive the reported benefits.


  3. John says:

    I spaced out on this so I am sorry for the late response. I don’t know how much Anthocyanins and flavinoids are in the cherry juice concentrate. About 10 years ago Dr. Russ Reiter, a leading Melatonin researcher, found that the Montmorency tart cherry juice concentrate had the highest levels of natural (non-synthetic and therefore more soluble in the body) Melatonin that his lab had ever found. We are selling juice that has been concentrated to 68 Brix (a level of soluble solids mostly sugars). We try to use only cherries right off the tree, not sort-outs or juice derived from the pitting process. Depending on the availability of the fruit.

  4. Would Dried Pitted Tart Montmorency Cherries be beneficial? I can’t find the juice.

    • John says:

      We don’t have as much science on the dried cherries but they are growing in popularity. We ship the cherry juice concentrate via the USPS or UPS and we have the most experience and confidence in the concentrate. There are several new studies that have been very positive about the cherry powder too (Capsules). The capsules are the most economical then the concentrate.

  5. Rhonda says:

    Is there a tart cherry concentrate in a lozenge? I will be traveling and it will not be convenient to take juice

    • John says:

      Rhonda, We sell freeze dried Montmorency Tart Cherry Powder in a veggie capsule. The powder is made from whole pitted cherries that have had the juice removed. then they are freeze dried and powdered, then we send it to a lab to be encapsulated. You can order them online or call 1-877-937-5464 during Eastern Time business hours and we will get you going.

  6. Jason says:

    Does this tart cherry concentrate help with creaky joints or joint inflammation?

    • John says:

      Jason, I can’t answer that because the FDA has declared websites to be a “label” and therefore we must be registered as a drug if we mention human health and disease. I don’t know how the crackpot ads in the Sunday paper are exempt but apparently cherry growers were starting to threaten the drug companies who staff the FDA with lobbyists.

  7. It’s hard to come by educated people about this topic, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about!
