A Little Fruit Packing a Healthy Punch

Both dark and sweet cherries offer a large amount of sweet flavor, antioxidants and are a good source of fiber.  They’re also a healthier choice of sugar than refined sweeteners and processed foods. Whether you prefer them fresh off the tree or conveniently packed frozen, you’re body will thank you later. Here’s why:

For your heart, cherries offer antioxidants that ward off heart disease, as well as a high dose of anthocyanins that lower cholesterol and reduce inflammation. And speaking of inflammation, studies performed on cherries proved that cherries were just as effective and safer than prescription drugs to fight muscle inflammation, and cherries come with no health risks like medications do. So far you can tell how amazing these little fruits are for you.

There’s even more to love about cherries. On tomorrow’s This Land, how cherries play an important role in sleep, weight loss and your blood sugar.
