Science & Research
Backed by independent studies and research support, all InTerra formulations include the primary ingredient, tart cherries, which are comprised of 17 antioxidants, essential vitamins, and anthocyanins rich in anti-inflammatory properties. The chemical compounds found here play a significant role in improving digestion and have a positive influence on lipid oxidation and heterocyclic aromatic amine formation. Other natural ingredients, incorporated within our formulas, also contribute anti-inflammatory properties and omega 3 fatty acids.
Omega 3 fatty acids – eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, and docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA — are healthy polyunsaturated fats. In addition to their role in the structure and function of cells throughout your body, omega 3 fatty acids reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease through multiple actions. They fight inflammation, lower blood pressure, keep blood vessels healthy, and reduce levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. They may also help prevent rheumatoid arthritis and cancer, according to the Harvard School of Public Health.
Another all natural superfood ingredient supplementing our formulas carries vitamins D, E, and X-factor vitamin K2. Scientific analysis has enabled further insights into the exact values that this superfood possesses. Made up of a dynamic blend of omega 3, 6 & 9, and holding significant amounts of oleic acid, conjugated linoleic and palmaitic acids possess impressive sums of fat-soluble activators that work synergistically with the fatty acids to deliver optimal nutrition to cells. Although limited in number, some evidence-based clinical trials have confirmed this superfood acts therapeutically as a powerful anti-inflammatory. Also, it has been shown to ease gastrointestinal distress, speed rate of wound healing, and treat arthritis and joint pain even more effectively than olive or fish oils.
These facts, and all related scientific evidence, support our formulations as ideal for use in any beverage, food, or personal care products.
A substantial and growing body of scientific research continuously links Montmorency tart cherries to an array of important health benefits.
Marathon runners who drank Montmorency tart cherry juice five days before, the day of, and two days after running experienced a faster recovery of strength compared to those who drank a different beverage. 1
In another study, Montmorency tart cherry juice helped improve recovery time after intensive exercise compared to the placebo beverage that was used.2
Now recover while participating
In addition, our patented formulation’s portability offers use during an event with even higher concentrations for promoting muscle recovery.
Taking the scientifically proved and validated beneficial properties, it is important to note: InTerra formulations are higher in concentration than any competing tart cherry juice or concentration. This elevates our patented formulation for use not only during the training and recovery phases of activity, but because of its portability, our “Less is More” foundation permits use while participating on the road, in the field, or on the battleground.
Independent Studies & Research
InTerra has, in-part, sponsored on-going research at Central Michigan University in collaboration with the Field Neurosciences Institute. Our TBR formulation was dispensed as a food supplement for its efficiency associated with cognitive deficiencies in the animal model. The studies continue to yield positive results in the animal model with diseases such as Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s. Findings have shown the elimination of plaque on the brain as cited in the Journal of Medicinal Foods, Volume 16, Issue 4, April 8, 2013.
