      What makes cherries so good for you?

      Cherries rank among one of the healthiest fruits ever. Just eating one cup, or about 21 cherries gives you less than 100 calories. It also fulfils 15% of your daily vitamin C needs. From the heart to arthritis, cherries play an important role in maintaining health.

      Keeps your heart healthy

       Cherries are filled with nutrients and compounds that are good for heart health such as potassium and polyphenol antioxidants. Potassium is a nutrient vital to maintaining a regular heartbeat and also clearing excess sodium from the body.

      Improves exercise recovery

      Cherries contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds which bring down exercise-induced muscle pain, damage and inflammation. This also enhances exercise performance. They cut down the cellular wear and tear due to exercise.

      Has plenty of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds

      All varieties of cherries have high levels of anti-oxidants and this fights oxidative stress which is a major cause for premature aging and many chronic diseases. They also reduce inflammation. They are rich in polyphenols which are key plant chemicals which fight cellular damage, bring down inflammation, and boost overall health. They also have carotenoid pigments like beta-carotene and vitamin C.

      Good for arthritis and gout

      Cherries are powerful anti-inflammatory agents and help to bring down the symptoms of arthritis and gout. In gout, the buildup of uric acid brings about extreme swelling, inflammation, and pain in the joints.

      Sleep better

      When you eat cherries or drink juice, this helps you sleep better. It also contains melantonin, a compound that’s essential to regulate the sleep-wake cycle.

      Helps prevent and manage diabetes

      When you compare cherries to other fruits, they rank lower on the glycemic index. The advantage is that these do not trigger spikes and crashes in your blood sugar and insulin levels. Therefore, they not only protect against diabetes, they also help you manage diabetes.
