A cherry-tastic morning at the Good Spa Guide

This morning we received a package from the lovely people at Cherry Active, and the Good Spa Spies were all too happy to spruce up their obligatory water intake with a shot of pure concentrated cherry juice.

A single 30ml shot of Cherry Active's concentrated Montmorency cherry juice (mixed with 250ml water) claims to provide the same amount of antioxidants as 23 average portions of fruit and veg. Wow!

Cherry Active's people tell us that the unique cherry-juice supplement can fight signs of ageing, fight free radicals and support your body's collagen production. Double wow.

Obviously, after a single shot each, we can't comment on the anti-ageing properties, but we can tell you that this tangy, fruity concentrate tastes great, and is pretty versatile. You can put it in water, in a smoothie, mix it with yoghurt, or -- as Sassy Spy suggested -- pour it on ice-cream. (Slightly counter-productive, perhaps, but certainly tasty!)

A shot also counts as one of your 5-a-day, so what have you got to lose?!
