millie says eat cherries

Cherries, Prunus cerasus and Prunus cerasus Lambert, commonly referred to as sour cherries and bing cherries, respectively are certainly a favorite for munching… but did you know that with every handful of these crimson beasts devoured, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant chemicals, including vitamin C and proanthocyanidins, are working to soothe and repair muscles after exercise?

A second scientifically proven effect of cherries and cherry juice is in reducing plasma urate levels in the blood, providing a natural approach to treating gout. So the next time you eat cherries, think of all the pain-free effects they have on the body as an excuse to eat some more!
