Health benefits of cherries

Not only are cherries awesome because they’re in season (wahoo!), they have tons of health benefits;

  • They are super high in antioxidants which help with cancer prevention and slow down ageing. Quercetin – one of the most potent antioxidants, is abundant in cherries.
  • Cherries are anti-inflammatory and may help reduce pain and inflammation, especially in people with osteoarthritis.
  • Consuming cherries has been linked to a higher production of melatonin at night which helps improve your sleep.
