LONDON, April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
NEW research proves a cherry-rich diet has positive cardiovascular health benefits
England strokes are the third largest cause of death every year, after heart disease and cancer, while the brain damaged caused by strokes are the main cause of disability in the UK (1). The University of Michigan has released brand NEW research proving that Montemorency cherries have direct cardiovascular benefits. Integrating cherries into diets can help reduce the chances of stroke, high cholesterol and diabetes. Award-winning CherryActive is made from 100% Montmorency cherries that are a natural source of powerful antioxidants and nutrients and are an easy way to incorporate cherries into your diet!
So how do cherries reduce the chances of stroke?
PPAR isoforms (peroxisome proliferator activating receptors) regulate genes in the body. PPAR isoforms play a vital role particularly in the regulation of genes in fat and glucose metabolism. The University of Michigan states that PPAR isoforms that are activated by Montmorency cherries can alter these genes and decline the risk of heart disease. Thus incorporating these cherries in your diet can provide significant cardiovascular health benefits!
Why CherryActive capsules?
Leading nutritional expert Patrick Holford recommends CherryActive Capsules as "a low-calorie way to introduce Montmorency cherry nutrients into your diet".
CherryActive Capsules are made with 100% freeze-dried Montmorency cherries, using special techniques to harness the cherries' powerful nutrients, whilst minimising their calorie content (less than 2 cals per cap). With no binders, fillers or other additives, CherryActive Capsules are a light and convenient way of gaining the explosive cardiovascular health benefits of Montmorency cherries!
