Health benefits of Cherries!

Cherries are small stone fruits that come in a variety of colors and flavors. There are two major categories — tart and sweet cherries.


Cherries are a good source of fiber, which helps keep your digestive system healthy by fueling beneficial gut bacteria and promoting bowel regularity. Plus, they provide B vitamins, manganese, copper, magnesium, and vitamin K.

 

Research shows that the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds in cherries may help relieve exercise-induced muscle pain, damage, and inflammation.

 

Tart cherries and their juice seem to be more effective than sweet varieties, though both may aid athletes.

 

Just 1 cup (154 grams) of pitted, sweet cherries provides 10% of the DV for potassium, a mineral that is essential for keeping your heart healthy. 


The health benefits of cherries can depend on a number of factors, such as the cherry variety, how many a person consumes, and how often they consume them. Among the participants who consumed the cherry-based product, sleep and nocturnal rest significantly improved. Older participants experienced an even more marked improvement.

 

The results revealed that tart cherry consumption improved a person’s endurance during exercise. This was possibly due to its low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, and blood flow-enhancing properties. Scientists need to carry out more research to determine whether or not cherries can reduce recovery times and soreness after exercise.
