Does Cherry Fruit Extract have any effect on pH balance?
Cherries are a source of flavonoids, natural compounds that have many positive effects on our health. The flavonoids in Cherry Fruit Extract promote pH balance by maintaining healthy uric acid levels. Uric acid results from the breakdown of purines, compounds found in all human tissues and in many foods. According to the American Medical Association, foods with high purine content include beer and other alcoholic beverages, anchovies, sardines in oil, fish roes, herring; and organ meats, such as liver, kidneys, and sweetbreads. Cherry Fruit Extract also has antioxidant properties to protect cells from free radical damage and compounds that support healthy capillaries, collagen structures, eyes, joints, and arteries.
