What are the health benefits of cherries?
Cherries, with their characteristic dark pigment, are rich sources of antioxidant compounds for protection against free radical damage, as well as reported anti-cancer benefits (particularly attributable to the ellagic acid content).
Cherries are also rich sources of Potassium, Vitamins A and C and have also long been considered beneficial in alleviating the symptoms of gout and arthritis due to the inhibitory effects on inflammatory cascades as a result of their powerful phytonutrients. Another feature of these nutrient packed fruits is the presence of melatonin, assisting with sleep quality and circadian rhythm.
