The Montmorency Cherry is a variety of sour cherry grown in the United States, Canada and France; Michigan alone produces over 90,000 tons of Montmorency cherries each year.
Montmorency cherries are part of the lighter-red Amarelle cultivar of sour cherries, rather than the darker-red Morello cultivar. Since the early 21st century, the Montmorency cherry has been promoted as a healthful food, due to several purported health benefits.
Montmorency Cherrys are rich in Anthocyanins making this supplement very popular amongst sports people and athletes who are in training, or recovering from their regular training regime.
Due to the high ORAC (oxygen radical absorption capacity) values of Montmorency cherry, the powdered fruit extracts are perfect to be placed in capsules or tablets as organic health supplement/vitamins.
