Lamberts Liquid Cherry Concentrate (formerly Toetal) 500ml Liquid is a Sour Cherry Concentrate with Red Grape and Apple. Research on Sour cherries (not to be confused with sweet cherries) through the 1990's has identified the antioxidant properties of this fruit. The active antioxidants in sour cherries include eight compounds (polyphenolic compounds) including anthocyanidins and quercetin.
Anthocyanidins have both antioxidant properties as well as acting as an anti-inflammatory. Further studies on sour cherries discovered that particular compounds found in the fruit may inhibit the inflammatory pathways associated with Uric Acid production. High levels of Uric Acid in the body can lead to health problems such as Gout and kidney damage.
General Use: antioxidant and support for the cardiovascular system.
Useful for those undertaking regular sports and exercise.
Sour cherries are thankfully not however a reflection of the taste of Toetal, which is naturally sweetened with red grape and apple juice!

Lamberts® Cherry Concentrate consists of highly concentrated juice of sour cherries and tastes great as it is naturally sweetened with red grape and apple concentrates both of which are also packed with healthy polyphenolic compounds.
The unique benefits of sour cherries (not to be confused with sweet cherries) first came to light in the 1990s, when numerous studies were published concerning the antioxidant content of this fruit. Further research has identified the active antioxidants as eight polyphenolic compounds, including anthocyanins and quercetin.
As well as potent antioxidants, anthocyanidins have been shown in a number of studies to possess other useful functions in the body. Our diets used to be rich in these fascinating compounds because fruits, berries and seeds were an important part of our 'stone-age' diets. Anthocyanadins are also found in cranberries, bilberries and gogi berries, all of which are hailed as 'superfoods'.
