The Montmorency is a variety of tart cherries, related to the darker, larger variety of sweet cherries. This particular cherry is known for its sour taste and greater nutritional benefits. For instance, one serving of Montmorency cherries contains 20 times more vitamin A and 5 times more antioxidants compared to the sweet variety. Montmorency cherries are rich in antioxidants and contain potent, naturally-occurring phytonutrients, including anthocyanins and melatonin, which have been linked to a variety of health beneﬁts.
Tart cherries are small and bright red with pale, juicy insides and a sour taste. The sweet cherries are the bigger, darker cherries with a sweet taste, and most likely the ones you find in your local fruit market. You probably won’t come across fresh Montmorency cherries, unless you live in one of the growing regions.
Melatonin: 5800ng per 100g

At nah, we are not fans of empty claims and latest fads. We believe in natural products, supported by significant scientific evidence. We search high and low to bring you the most effective natural remedies and ‘superfoods’ from around the world. We have summarised some studies and health benefits associated with the tart cherry below, but do have a look online on (we recommend PubMed) for the full range as there are quite a few more.
Endurance & Workout Recovery
Montmorency tart cherry is thought to be a natural food to aid exercise, recovery and endurance.
A new study published in January 2020 revealed that tart cherry concentrate has a significant benefit for endurance exercise performance. It showed that when ingested for seven days, 1.5 hours before exercise performance testing, it significantly improved endurance. This is thought to be due to its low glycaemic index, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative capacity, and blood flow enhancing effects.
High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is when the pressure in your blood vessels is unusually high. High blood pressure does not usually have symptoms, and can do significant damage to organs such as kidneys and heart. A blood pressure monitor can be used to detect high blood pressure. Montmorency tart cherries may provide a number of cardiovascular benefits including reduction of blood pressure.
A 2016 study involved 15 participants displaying early hypertension with blood pressure readings exceeding 130/90 mmHg being given 60ml of a Montmorency cherry concentrate or the same quantity of a commercially available cordial. Blood pressure and samples were taken before administration and on an hourly basis and researchers found that participants given the cherry concentrate saw a peak reduction in their blood pressure of 7mmHg in the three hours following consumption.
Montmorency tart cherries are one of the few foods high in naturally occurring melatonin, a hormone critical in regulation of the sleep cycle.
A 2018 study, involved eight participants aged 50 years or older with chronic insomnia taking part in a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Participants who passed the screening were randomly assigned to either a Montmorency tart cherry juice group or a placebo control group. Those in the Montmorency tart cherry juice group consumed (240 ml) of Montmorency tart cherry juice containing a measured level of procyanidin in the morning and at night, one to two hours before bedtime, for 14 days. When compared to a placebo, Montmorency tart cherry juice was found to significantly extend sleep time of the senior insomniacs by 84 minutes and increased their sleep efficiency.
May help alleviate symptoms associated with arthritis and gout
Arthritis is a condition which causes pain and inflammation in the joints. Gout is a form of arthritis, caused by excess uric acid in the blood, which crystallises in your joints. Gout attacks are sudden and can cause serious pain and stiffness in the joints.
For decades, arthritis and gout sufferers have turned to cherries to relieve their symptoms - despite the evidence to support the benefits only being anecdotal. The first organised study to examine the potential of cherries in the treatment of arthritis and gout was conducted in the 1950s. This preliminary investigation consisting of twelve patients with arthritis and gout, found that daily consumption of 225g of canned cherries helped to reduce the frequency of self reported gout attacks and the painful symptoms associated with arthritis. The participants also displayed lower levels of uric acid in their blood.
We recommend a serving of 30-60ml, once or twice a day, based on the dosage used in the scientific studies. The concentrate can be mixed with a glass of still or sparkling water, drizzled onto a salad, mixed into the pre-workout smoothie, made into a sorbet or incorporated into a delicious cheesecake! The possibilities are endless.
Imagine the goodness of a 100 Montmorency cherries, packed into a single 30ml serving, free to be drizzled onto a salad, poured into a glass of sparkling water or simply enjoyed ‘neat’. Now imagine it in a glass bottle, free from nasty chemicals leaching into the goodies, free from preservatives, all packaged in 100% biodegradable or recyclable packaging. Because we care about the environment just as much as we care about what we put in our bodies!
nah was inspired by a personal mission in the founder's own life. When her mother’s blood-pressure became dangerously high and medication - with unpleasant side effects - seemed inevitable, she decided to seek out a natural alternative. After an in-depth search, she came across a real, whole food with healing and preventative properties: the wonderful Montmorency cherry. Vitally, she also found its benefits were backed up by science, with evidence-based claims that went beyond reversing hypertension to improving sleep, reducing blood pressure, boosting athletic performance and more.
Though Montmorency was clearly the answer to her prayers, there was still one problem: supply. With the cherry itself difficult to source, the best available option was an extract that was poor-quality and included additives and preservatives. So she decided to do it herself, taking the finest Montmorency cherries and giving them a gentle squeeze… and nah was born. Putting the 100% purely concentrated cherry juice in a glass bottle made it possible to preserve quality without any nasty additives – and avoid leaching plastic contaminants known to damage health.
