Brownwood Acres is a family business that began as a honey stand during the sugar rationing of World War II. Over generations, the de Tar family built the company into a specialty food and gift merchant, producing homemade products from neighboring orchards--including jams, cherry salsa, cherry barbeque sauce, and its famous cherry butter. In light of recent medical interest in antioxidants, company president Steve de Tar has revamped the business into a nutraceutical manufacturer. Its tart cherry, pomegranate, and blueberry juice concentrates are sold in Kroger grocery stores, as well as in health food stores and through the company's website.
Today, the sales of CherryFlex and Wild BlueberryIQ softgels are driving the company's growth. Brownwood Acres Foods, Inc. won a coveted place on Inc. Magazine's 2004 list of America's 500 fastest growing private companies.

Omega-3 And Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) is responsible for numerous deaths in the U.S. and other countries around the world. It is not the same as a heart attack. A heart attack normally occurs when advanced atherosclerosis (clogging of the arteries) slowly starves the heart causing irreversible damage. The heart finally cannot function properly and stops. Sudden cardiac death occurs when the electrical impulses that control heart function become erratic resulting in an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia). When the arrhythmia is severe enough the heart suddenly stops, starving the brain of needed blood. Death often follows quickly unless emergency care is administered immediately. Often sudden cardiac death occurs when no other heart disease is detected.
