Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate

I was channel surfing yesterday and started to watch Dr. Oz. On his show he mentioned how good Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate was for anti-inflammatory and insomnia.

Where can I get this stuff. I wouldn't mind trying it out for a while, but I just don't know which brand is good. So if anyone out there has any insight on this stuff, please share. Much appreciated!!!!

I've seen bottled tart cherry juice at NF. Not sure how good it is. I might pick up a bottle next time I go.

Most natural health food stores should have it (Noah's, Big Carrot, etc).

I know that Ambrosia does have it.

Funny...I also saw the show and I bought a bottle of the cherry juice at No Frills (Warden/Hwy 7). I think it was $4 - not a concentrate.

Thanks to all that have replied. I was doing a bit of research and apparently you need to be carefull of where you buy and which company. So far from what I've read the product produced at Taverse Bay Farms has proven to be the best quality of concentrate.

Does it have to be 'tart' cherry juice or does pure black cherry juice (no sugar added) be the same ?

I am not sure and only familiar with all natural black cherry juice

It can be either - Dr. Oz is quack
It's pronounced Throat Wobbler Mangrove

Reporting back:

The product I bought at No Frills is Tamek Sour Cherry Nectar (1 Litre). It says on the label, minimum 35% fruit juice.

http://www.sayadmarket.com/products/Tam ... ectar.html

Taste: It was tart. But pretty refreshing cold.

I'd buy it again.

I picked up the same brand last night from the NF near Midland and Steeles. It was $3.29 for the 1L bottle.
Head's up if you are watching your sugar intake. 30gms sugar/ 250mL and 2nd ingredient on the list.

Perhaps only health food stores carry the unsweetened versions? I recall seeing Sour Cherry "Juice" at some Middle Eastern stores. Not sure if they have any brands without added sugar.

Hmm, I am seriously considering to get some, but I was wondering:

1. How are you supposed to drink this? Like do you mix it with water? I have no clue x.x Or are you supposed to just drink a small amount of it each day?

2. Anyone out there that bought it, how do you like the taste of it?


:) Thankss ^__^

I just picked up a bottle of Knudsen 100% pure black cherry juice in the health section of Loblaws. No sugar added. It was very sweet. Reminded me of drinking grape juice.

I am going to add half of perrier or club soda to it. Will cut the calories and sweetness.

With the Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate I beleive you mix 1 oz of the concentrate with 7 oz of water.

I'm heading down to the states next week so hopefully I will find some there.
