Eating Cherries and Drinking Cherry Juice - The Health Benefits

There are so many health supplements and articles on healthy eating available today, that it is no wonder that we get confused and wonder what are really the best things to eat to stay healthy.  Well research has shown that drinking tart cherry juice and eating cherries, provides you with powerful anitoxidants, vitamins and minerals.

The deep red colour of the cherry is provided courtesy of very powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins, that help to protect our bodies from disease and infections, and can all help to slow down ageing. Anthocyanins are also strong, natural anti-inflammatories, so drinking tart cherry juice or eating cherries can also help to ease the pain of arthritis.

All cherries contain anthocyanins, but they are present in a much greater concentration in tart or Montmorency cherries, along with vitamin C, folates, magnesium and fibre.  Because this cherry juice is not sweet, it is drunk diluted with water, and is taken by athletes to help reduce muscle soreness after playing sport and to help keep their joints healthy.

Drinking cherry juice can also help with insomnia, help to protect you from heart disease, improve your immune system, help to protect you from developing gout.
