New Study Found Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice Reduced Blood Pressure

Drinking Montmorency tart cherry juice may help reduce high blood pressure, suggests a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Researchers at Northumbria University, found that men with early hypertension saw a 7 percent reduction in blood pressure after drinking 60 ml of Montmorency tart cherry juice concentrate when compared to drinking a fruit-flavored cordial. This reduction is comparable to the level achieved by anti-hypertensive medication.

Grown on small family orchards in North America, Montmorency tart cherries have an on-trend taste and in-demand benefits. More than 50 studies have explored the health-promoting properties of this homegrown superfruit.
