CherryActive, a tasty new drink which is super-rich in antioxidants, is now available at Evergreen branches in Galway.
The rich juice concentrate offers the antioxidant equivalent of 20 portions of fruit in just one glass.
Eating foods high in antioxidants, with a high ORAC score, neutralise free radicals and therefore not only help protect ourselves from life-threatening disease, but is thought by leading researchers and nutrition experts to slow down the ageing process itself.
Free radicals are chemicals that form naturally inside the body through the process of oxidation. Everyday functions such as breathing, digestion and physical activity produce free radicals. Daily exposure to polluted air, fried or over-cooked food, and oxidizing radiation from the sun and electrical appliances also contribute.
An easy to understand example of oxidation is to imagine rust attacking metal. When the rust eats away at the metal, the metal starts to weaken and decay until it can no longer work. This is what happens to your body when free radicals attack it. Organs, cells, and other parts of the body can be weakened by oxidation. This process is what researchers believe leads to diseases such as cancer, heart disease, senile dementia, and osteoarthritis.
CherryActive is sold in a highly concentrated juice format. Each 946ml bottle contains the juice from over 3,000 cherries (half a tree’s worth ) and contains a month’s supply. Add 30ml serving to 250ml water to make a deliciously healthy, low GI, 100 per cent natural, daily cherry juice. Alternatively, it can be added to your favourite smoothie, yoghurt, or even as a mixer! Packed with powerful antioxidants, and containing no added preservatives, sugars, colours, or flavours, CherryActive is a must for anyone conscious about maintaining good health, vitality, and youthful looks.
Cherry Active is available in liquid and capsule form in Galway from your nearest Evergreen Healthfoods store.
