The pain relieving powers of cherry juice...

Dick and I have long believed in the power of cherry juice to help with our aches and pains...we have ordered it from northern Michigan ( Brownwood Farms). Walmart carries a cherry juice concentrate too. It's called Riveridge Red Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate, I believe was $8.88 and makes 3 quarts after it is diluted. You just add 2 tablespoons to anything you are drinking or water.


Cherry juice has properties that help fight inflammation in muscles, which helps to reduce pain or stiffness. Dick says it helps with gout too.

Brownwood Farms says some of the reasons we drink cherry juice....
Supports Healthy Joint Function
Supports Healthy Cardiovascular Function
Supports A Healthy Immune System
Naturally Occurring Melatonin - Helps Maintain A Healthy/Or Normal Sleep Cycle

I've found Bolthouse Farms C-Boost has cherry juice in it as well as peaches and apples...it is GOOD! I buy it at Walmart ($3.88). Wholefoods carries it too. Bolthouse carries lots of varieties of smoothies...something for everything and everyone.


Wow! Taste awesome and works for you too...




I copied this from their website....

Blended with Ingredients to Support your Body's Immune System
The ingredients in C-Boost were thoughtfully selected to support your body's Immune System. It all begins with two hand-picked tropical fruits known for their incredible Vitamin C content. In fact, Camu Camu fruit and Acerola cherries are two of the most Vitamin C rich fruits on this earth. Camu Camu and Acerola cherries provide 51 and 32 times more Vitamin C content than an orange, respectively. We also added in the mineral Zinc and Vitamins A and E, micronutrients known for their effects on Immune System health. Finally, we added in Echinacea, Astragulus and Maitake Mushrooms, herbal ingredients that have been used for centuries to promote a healthy Immune System.

If you have some aches and pains or are under a lot of stress...do yourself a favour and try some some Bolthouse Farms C-Boost to get you started on your way to feeling a little better.

Thanks for introducing me to Bolthouse Farms. I just picked up the book "Eat This, Not That: The No-Diet Weight Loss Solution." They recommend the Bolthouse Farms Strawberry Banana Smoothie at 120 calories as a healthy supermarket selection. Can't wait to try both these items.
