Cherries have always been one of my favorite fruits, and I found that out by eating Cherry Cheesecake!!!!!!! ahhahahaha. Still my favorite.

So I just found out that cherries could actually be labeled a super food because they are so beneficial for our health. Check it out:

Dr. Natasha Turner is North America’s leading naturopathic doctor and founder of the Clear Medicine Wellness Boutique in Toronto, Canada lists these health  benefits:

  • Cherries battle belly fat

Researchers found that tart cherries have significant weight management benefits for animals, including reduced belly fat.Their blood also showed much lower levels of certain inflammation markers linked to heart disease and diabetes. In addition, they had significantly lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides than their cherry-deprived counterparts.

  • Cherries cut your chance of getting gout

A 2012 study published in Arthritis & Rheumatism found that patients with gout who consumed cherries over a two-day period (yes, just two days!) showed a 35% lower risk of gout attacks compared to their fruit wary counterparts. In addition, the risk of gout flares was 75 per cent lower when cherry intake was combined with the uric-acid reducing drug, allopurinol.

  • Cherries combat post-workout soreness

Studies suggest a cup and a half of tart cherries or one cup of tart cherry juice can significantly reduce muscle inflammation and soreness.

  • Cherries reduce stroke risk and blocks cancer growth

Researchers from the University of Michigan Health System found that tart cherries provide cardiovascular benefits equal to some medications. They believe that anthocyanins — the pigments that give the tart cherries its red color — may activate something called PPAR in bodily tissues, which in turn regulate fat and glucose levels and therby reduce risk factors for high cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes.

  • Cherries help you get some sleep

In one study, participants drank 30ml of cherry juice 30 minutes after waking and 30 minutes before their evening meal, thereby boosting their exogenous melatonin intake by 85mcg/day which yielded results of not only more sleep but better quality of sleep. Dr. Turner recommends drinking a half to 1 cup of cherry juice to help you sleep.


This delicious fruit is just an example of a delicious food that is healthy. The main point I try to get across to people is that healthy food does not have to taste bad!! Also, there are nature provides us with any medicine that we need so we don’t have to put dangerous medications in our body that are supposed to make us healthier… I’m just sayin


So grab some cherries on the way home and just relaxxxxxx. yummmmmmmm and feel good

Have a great day, You are Beautiful and You are the only You!!!!
