Raw, Sun-Dried Cherries are a superfood.
Cherries are the smallest members of the stone fruit family, which include plums, apricots, nectarines, and peaches. The naturally occurring nutritional and medicinal value that cherries possess ranks above that of most other fruits. Regular consumption of them is extremely beneficial to an individual’s health and wellness.
Cherries contain a type of flavonoid called anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are the pigments that give cherries their rich coloring. Anthocyanins have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Anthocyanins possess anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic activity, cardiovascular disease prevention, obesity control, and diabetes alleviation properties, all of which are more or less associated with their potent antioxidant property.
In herbal medicine, anthocyanin-rich substances have long been used to treat a number of conditions, including high blood pressure, colds, and urinary tract infections.
In addition, cherries may be useful in alleviating sleep problems due to their high content of melatonin, a compound critical in regulating the sleep-wake cycle in humans.
