Cherries lower bad cholesterol which contributes to the development of atherosclerosis and causes heart attack and stroke.
Cherries have always been used as a cure for arthritis and food for good sleep.
All cherries—sweet and sour—are a folk remedy for aches and pain. But recent medical research validates that sour cherries are superior to sweet varieties in their medicinal properties. This resonates with our common sense. Sweeter fruits are higher in carbohydrates and, therefore, lower in micronutrients with pharmaceutically healing properties.
Sour cherries provide highly effective pain relief and are an excellent source of antioxidant compounds. Their anti-inflammatory compounds, anthocyanins, are at least 10 times more active than aspirin according to a recent study from Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.
Lead researcher, Muralee Nair, a professor of natural products chemistry, says that twenty tart cherries a day can keep pain related to arthritis and inflammation at bay.
Additionally, sour cherries are a potent source of seventeen beneficial antioxidants. Antioxidants are useful in the prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease and they help slow the aging process. Two of these antioxidants, kaempferol and quercetin are found in supplements used to improve memory, concentration and vision.
Fresh cherries are excellent for eliminating physical and mental fatigue while sour cherries eliminate bad mood rapidly. Cherries should not be eaten before meals because they may havebad effect on digestion of other food. After eating cherries, one should not drink liquids, especially beer or alcohol.
Cherries contain cellulose, thus they regulate digestion and because of large amounts of water and potassium they help eject water from the body and improve functioning of kidneys, bile and liver. They also help maintaining our heart in good shape and prevent cancer.
Against rheumatism and heart illnesses
A study, published by Michigan State University, concluded that the natural chemicals found in tart, or sour cherries are 10 times more effective in fighting inflammation than Aspirin. While not a “cure”, this natural drug may provide pain relief and increased mobility to those suffering from inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and gout, without the complications traditionally induced by the use of over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs.
To relieve pain
Anthocyanins from cherries block inflammation and reduce pain. This is why only 20 cherries are ten times more effective than aspirin and have positive effect on arthritic pain.
Cherry stem tea for kidneys
Tea is made of cherry stems for better urinating on the occurrence of kidney stones. Put three tablespoons of cherry stems in a liter of boiling water and boil for 2 minutes. Leave it for 15 minutes, then strain it and drink throughout the day.
For bones and weight loss
Cherry is a source of microelement boron (396μg/100g), which combined with calcium and magnesium does good for bones. Since they contain very few calories, no fat and plenty of water, many people use them in diets for weight loss and they are recommended for diabetics.
Cherries purify blood and recharge energy. One cherry has only 4 calories, equal amounts of carbohydrates and proteins, and contains no fat.
Cherry seeds contain small quantity of vitamin B17 which is considered to affect the reduction of tumors as well as prevent their spreading and relieve pain caused by cancer.
