The seed has been used in cooking since the second millennium and is often found in Indian, Middle Eastern, Armenian and Turkish cuisines. Called the blessed oil, the Prophet Muhammad claimed it could cure just about everything except death. Its power comes from its high nutrient and amino acid profile. Start with both oil & seeds. Incorporate the seeds by adding to vegetables, lentils, beans, soup and bread recipes. Massage oil on painful joints or drink with juice.

CHERRiSH was born out of our own personal experience with the healing benefits of tart cherry juice. As marathon runners, we experienced the impact of tart cherry juice first hand after learning about it from fellow athletes. We tried it, and while we couldn’t believe how much it helped in reducing inflammation and speeding muscle recovery, the taste was just too tart. By combining a small amount of sweet Bing cherries with the tart cherries, we created a refreshing and rejuvenating beverage that tastes great, speeds muscle recovery, and offers pain relief simply and naturally. CHERRiSH juices have no added apple juice, fillers or sugars, perfect for anyone monitoring their glycemic index. CHERRiSH is enjoyed by top performance athletes, as well as health-conscious individuals looking for a healthy, tasty beverage.
