Cherry (Prunus cerasus, sour cherries)
Cherries are the smallest member of the stone fruit family and are typically classified as either tart or sweet. Traditionally used for joint support. Tart cherry juice can be consumed straight or mixed with water or in a smoothie or shake. High in anthocyanins, tart cherry is touted for maintaining joint health as well as being very beneficial to cardiovascular health.

A daily intake of up to 120 cherries (or 80 milligrams anthocyanins) is recommended. This is equivalent to 16-24 ounces tart cherry juice or 400 milligrams tart cherry tablets or capsules.
